Hi everyone,

A group of us try to race once per month. We have been recording our antics on Youtube.

Most of us became friends through board gaming many years ago. We have expanded the league to a few friends of friends as well. This is a closed group by invite only. We race at a Condo Rec Facility. The winner of each race gets to design the next track. We use a race format similar to that of the HO Indy Slot Car league (fabulous coverage on youtube of this group, btw).

We race on Carrera 1:24/1:32 scale track. So far we have been running a mixture of the following Carrera Digital 132 scale cars:

DTM

GT3

BMW Procar

Porsche Spyder

Ford GT2

Ford Capri Zakspeed Turbo

You can find our race coverage here:

Nurburgring (July 21, 2019)

Lanceapolis 500 (May 11, 2019)

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiE4iIsh03zBZMViAFOdiaw (my 10 yr old's first attempt at race coverage and editing so their are some late 60's / early 70's psychedelic things happening on this one.. haha)

Please note we have a mix of people recording each race. We probably won't win any awards on coverage anytime soon but we have fun. Our hope is to get better as we go. Most of the video coverage will be with a Go Pro Hero 7 and a Samsung Tab A Tablet.

Please note clips may have some language. Feel free to like and subscribe to my channel for any further updates!

Cheers!

Michael

Thanks for the info Tom. I will let my group know you have events going on in Calgary and elsewhere. Although we compete most of us don't take our racing too seriously. I doubt we would be anywhere near competitive with more race orientated groups.

Cheers,

Michael

Hi everyone,

Our latest race session has been recorded and input onto Youtube. You can find the playlist for our Green Bastard track here:

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZT84_hcFQ5i5v4ycwaAt-jv-w1Y5goKL

For some reason our Race Final failed to record properly... ugg.

We also had quite a bit of controversy in our Consi Race. Oh well... life is good.

Thanks for watching.

Hi everyone,

Here is our Season Finale for 2019 - The Haktona 200. The track is a combination of the Pocono and Daytona circuits. In the spirit of Nascar we ran the track counter-clockwise. We race a combination of GT3, DTM, and LMS cars all made by Carrera.

For some reason my go pro kept overheating. I wish I knew that before I purchased it... As such it broke our races into shorter segments.

For our final races we also had the participants walk over to the kitchen to do a shot of Cherry Whiskey, Sambuca, and Apple Juice (for my son). This idea was taken from the HO Indy Slot Car League.

The room is very loud especially when we race. We get pretty excited when we come off track but we all mean well.

It was a great season with lots of laugh. Congrats to Lance for winning the Season. Kieran was in 2nd. Darren was third. Thanks for watching!

Hi everyone,

Here is a link to the races captured on the first race for the 2020 season, The Loch Ness Monster Circuit. This season we decided to all run DTM cars to help balance the car performance. We run mostly stock Carrera Digital 1:32 setups with Paul Gage tires allowed.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgGckeeDQ6mRPzvU8nH44UA/playlists

We captured Heat Race A, B, C, and also the Final Race. Congrats to Henning on his first win. Henning will absolutely need to get a DTM car now.

It seemed we were plagued with non-stop technical issues; track building, pit stop problems, and a few smart race glitches. As such this wasn't exactly our best camera work (sorry).

I am positive our next event will be much smoother.

Thanks for watching. Feel free to subscribe to our channel if you feel inclined.

Cheers,

Michael

Hi everyone,

Here is the playlist for our latest race. The track was modeled after the Circuit Assen DTM track in the Netherlands.

I have finally been able to get a video editor working on my old laptop. We have been able to add some title screens and stat pages.
