Team Falken Tire's strong run at Road America came to a disappointing end this afternoon, resulting in the team's first DNF of the 2012 American Le Mans Series race season. Riding the momentum of two consecutive top-four finishes, the Falken Porsche looked to be fiercely competitive at the 14 turn, 4.08 mile road course.
Road to Victory - 2012 Falken Baltimore
With strong tire performance, pure driving flair, a flawless pit stop and experience culled from last year's victory, Team Falken enabled history to repeat itself by once again taking the American Le Mans Series GT class win on the streets of Baltimore.

Day two, 1st stint. Lots of wheel-to-wheel racing with Launcha Splatos, Dirty Rat Trap Racing, and Shitbox Racing.
11:55 first catch of Launcha Splatos (we race back and forth through the 1st 75 minutes of the stint, usually catching them exiting the carousel, and then getting passed on the back straight!)
31:00 first run-in with Dirty Rat Trap (spent the next eight laps trying to keep them behind me; fast car in a straight line, needed help in the braking zones/corners; someone eventually figured it out as their quickest lap killed SMR's)
43:10 into T1; contact with DRTR. Watch the carousel for the next 8-10 laps.....
53:40 first wheel-to-wheel with Shitbox Racing; DRTR still around!
57:55 finally pass DRTR for good
59:59 around Shitbox Racing (good/clean driving by the way!)
L17 1:02:16 SMR's quickest lap of the race
L22 T1: Launcha Splatos around us again, and then us around them again in the carousel!
L23 main straight, LS around us again and stay just ahead of us for the rest of the stint (I think we pitted within a lap of each other...)
L25: 1:27:25 what about the blend line coming out of the pits!!!
L27: running on fumes and taking it easy (last lap)

RC ADVENTURES - BLACK WiDOW - 1st Run of a Custom Vanquish / Axial Wraith 4x4 RC Truck
http://www.RCSparks.com - 1080p HD for TOP Quality Viewing! WOW It's Cold! Haha :~) Today we BRAVE the Cold winds of the North to take this Custom Wraith out and give it it's first run! We had a bit of problems from the extreme cold and the Hitec Waterproof Servo. Seemingly.. we snapped one of the gears. But.. in sub-zero temperatures, bashing RC's - it's only a matter of time before something tiny and plastic snaps! This wraith is CUSTOM BUiLT by the RCSparks Mechanics Team!
ALL INFORMATION ABOUT THIS TRUCK is HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkptymmPrDE
I was fortunate to have some Help from my friends at http://www.VanquishProducts.com to amp up this build.

The Vanquish Products on this build are truly a the work of fine craftsmanship. Vanquish has always had a reputation of putting out pure quality cast aluminum and machined part With the cast Aluminum Wraith Axles, Steering Assembly, & Rims, this truck was primed for a COMPLETE Custom Job by the "Dave's".. Wow! David Jr tackled this project like a BOSS! Keeping everything secret, but building a thread on RCSparks with small hints (here's a link - http://www.rcsparks.com/forum/studio-discussions/16078-rcsparks-vanquish-build-wraith-kit-thread.html) he gave little clues to what you are about to see in this video!

McLaren F1 GTR vs. CanAm rockets
Rennen "Trans-Atlantic Prototype Challenge" im Programm vom Spa Six Hours 2011. Ralf Kelleners im McLaren F1 GTR von 1997 steht zwar auf Pole Position muß sich aber zunächst den CanAm Raketen der frühen Siebziger Jahre wie dem McLaren M8F geschlagen geben. Es geht doch nichts über 8,8l Hubraum. Das Rennen gewann Kelleners nach 14Runden mit 16Sekunden Vorsprung vor dem McLaren M8F von Peter Hoffmann, dessen schnellste Rennrunde war nur 1,3Sekunden langsamer als die des F1GTR.
