1/24/04 GT1 Slot Car Enduro (Humberger $100):

The Humberger $100.00 Racing Field:


On January 24, 2004 NCPHOBBIES.COM held the first slot car race in the North Coast Road Racing Super Series.  At the end of this enduring series a winner will be crowned King of the North Coast slot car tracks. 




The first event in this series consisted of racers running 4" GT1 slot cars on the classis American Hill-Climb.  All slot cars ran a 8/28 gear ratio, had a sealed 16D motor, and raced under the Tri-State GT1 rules. 

The race consisted of a round robin with 7 1/2 minute lanes on the antique 135 foot American Hill-Climb slot car track with crossovers.



This event brought the best slot car racers from the North Coast of Ohio. Racers of both the past and present came together to battle at NCPHOBBIES.COM.   A total of 16 slot racers entered this event.

The Slot Car Race Winners:
After all the dust stopped flying and the lap totals were calculated Otis Young came out the slot car race leader with 613 laps.  He was followed in second by Rob Steinfurth and Tom Zinninger.  Great Slot Car Race Guys!


The Winning Slot Car


Otis Young drove the slot car pictured to the left to victory.  The car is the new JK chassis outfitted with minimal lead and body pin tubing.  This was the first time this slot car chassis was race at the North Coast and it performed great. 

 

The winning driver took home $100.00 in $1.00 bills.  The slot car is once again pictured to the right sitting on top of it's winnings.  Congratulations Otis on a great race.
