Race Results: SCHOR Race #4 at Mike Low's


Darren wins both Am events 
Hardbody & and Am Super Stock.

Morgan is fast man in Pro-Hardbody

Mike Low dominates Pro Super Stock
and is fastest in Modified.

It was the day right before Father's Day, and there are a lot of Dad's in SCHOR.  Which is probably why we had the lightest turn out of racers in a real long time.  But there were six of us, and with some creative race programing on the computer we had just enough turn marshalls.  Mike has recently done some work on the HAMMER and the tracks rails are now very nicely dialed in.  So it was time to race!   We got on with our usual SCHOR brand of fast and furious HO slot racing, and it was filled with that usual SCHOR fun and laughter.


On this particular day we used a blended format for both Hardbody and Super Stock.  That meant that Darren and Mickey (both Ams) got thrown in to race with the old pros:  Mike, Oscar, Ed, and Morgan.  But just like at Le Mans, they were racing as Ams and we raced as Pros which gave us two separate sets of points and results from those events.


In the Hardbody race Morgan managed to fine a good set-up on his old Tomy Super G+ that put him out in front of the pros, and Darren Angelo had his Tomy Turbo SRT dailed in to take the win on the Amatuer side with Mickey Hurtado running a strong second.



In Super Stock Mike Low had his BSRT G3R completely hooked up and went on to dominate the pros. Once again Darren had the right stuff and took top points for the Ams, with Mickey Hurtado only 2 laps back in a strong second place.



It was then time for the speed.  Mike Low and Eddie Torres had quite a race long battle with Mike walking away in the last heat for a solid, fast win in Modified.

All and all, another Saturday of solid SCHOR racing.

SLOTCAR T.V.

Between February and April of 2009,  Pop Landers and Tripp Raffle hosted the now infamous SlotCar T.V. Show at  Slotcar2009.com.  It's a real "must see" for all true Slot Car fans.

Race Results: SCHOR Race #3 - 4.21.12


Sean wins again in Amateur Hardbody

Darren Angelo edges out win in Am-Super Stock.

Dan "The Ace" Cronin dominates in Pro-Hardbody

Glenn "Mr Speed" Gordon takes Pro-Super Stock

Dan Cronin is fastest in Modified.

Ben wins the fastest NEO race ever

Racing on the Riverside at Eddie's in Rancho Cucamoga is something that we always look forward to.  Ed has an amazing facility and always presents a great race program on one of HO Slot Racing's finest tracks.  But this time he took it another step further and he had the race catered!  Talk about spoiling some Slot-Heads....next time they'll be looking around for the dancing pole!

Race Results: Results: SCHOR 2012 Race #2



John Cronin dominates Rookie Hardbody and Amateur Super Stock

Ben podiums 4 times and edges out Dan to win in Pro Hardbody

Mark "MRT" MacVittie blister's the entire field in Pro Super Stock

Dan wins big in Pro Modified.

Eddie "The Snake" snatches a close one in NEO

.............................

The St. Patricks Day SCHOR race of 2012 will long be remember as one of the wettest race days in SCHOR history.  Our race host Dan Cronin was as prepard as any good race host could be for the stormy weather, but the wind and rain was determined and we battled mother nature all day long.  In spite of the weather challenges we had a great turn-out which produced some great (slightly wet) HO racing.

Race Results: Results: SCHOR 2012 Race #1


"Mystery man" Sean takes Rookie Hardbody

John "The Jet" dominates Pro Hardbody with his Cukras-Mega G

Ben is fastest in Super Stock

Mike Low shows everybody the way in Pro-Modified
.............................

It's been a long time comin' but we finally managed to get the 2012 SCHOR HO Racing season underway. There was a great turn-out of SCHOR racers, and our famous So Cal winter weather cooperated too.  This was the very first time that we have raced magnet cars on Mike's new twisty but fast "HO International" layout.  It proved to be a bit of a set-up challenge (lots of 7/25 gears and full brakes!) but in the end the racing was quick and fun.

SO CAL 2012 Winter/Spring Race Schedule...

HO RACING 2012

As mentioned in the previous post, the So Cal HO racing schedule will get started with a very cool race this coming Saturday on the unique and world famous "KATZ-SPA-RING" at Brad Bowman's place in Escondido.  The SCHOR racing season will open next month at Mike Low's place in Highland Park, where there will be racing on his all new Bowman/Dunlap made "HO INTERNATIONAL" layout. The month of March will be silent, as there is no SCHOR race venue available and Glenn Gordon unfortunately won't be able to hold his annual 8 hour Enduro in Phoenix.  The years second SCHOR race will be in April on the always fast and fabulous "RIVERSIDE BUCKTRAX" at Eddie Torre's HO Racing Complex in Rancho Cucamonga. Then for May SCHOR is scheduled to make a return to the Super Quick  "POCKET ROCKET" in La Habra. This is a far as the official race scheduling dares to go right now. We are hoping to also get a SCHOR race in on Dan Cronin's new "STINGER SCORPION" track, and SCHOR will definitely return to Mike Low's place later in the year for another race on "THE HAMMER", as well returning to Eddie's in October.  "And that's the way the racing is!" - for now.

Katz Spa Ring - First Race of 2012 in So Cal...

HO racing in 2012 will start off the year in style with the first big So Cal race being held this January 21st on the world famous Katz Spa Ring (KSR). Most people know the story (click here if you don't) of this amazing HO Slot car track, but very few outside of the San Francisco Bay Area have ever had a chance to race on it. The KSR is now located in Southern California at slot track builder Brad Bowman's place in Escondido. This video footage is from the first So Cal gathering that Brad held this past August. As you can see the KSR an is awesome and unique track with great rhythm and is a blast to drive.
