SPEED SHOOTOUT COMING TO LORING
« on: April 21, 2011, 07:48:09 PM »
Hello all,
We at the LTA have an announcement to make.

Loring AFB will be hosting a "Texas Mile" type of event in September. 

It will be called The Speed Shootout. www.speedshootout.com

The people that run the base have asked us, The Loring Timing Association, to scrutinize and oversee any racing events proposed for the facilites.  They have had several inquiries and we feel it best to be directly involved to avoid problems and to reduce the risk of everyone getting kicked off the facility. So, the inaugeral SPEED SHOOTOUT will be held September 16-18.  The LTA will be responsible for the timing.

Rest assured that this event will have no effect on The Maine Event and amoung the classes will be an LSR event to allow all of the LSR guys to run in their respective classes.

Please help with your message boards, clubs, and mailing lists to help spread the word!

All the best,

Tim Kelly

Here's a quick note about the Shootout:  In a day or two I'll set up a "child board" for the Shootout so it'll be easy to find and chat about that particular event without getting mixed up with the LTA event for July.  Stay tuned -- be safe, have fun, go fast.

last year sept 16-18th Limestone  had a high of 67, a low of 38F, no precip.

I'd be up for it, but doing WOS on the same weekend.

Honestly, it is a bit late in the year for Maine, but certainly doable.

I had planned for WOS as well, pending confirmation there is room for my car in Bill R's  Hauler.
