2008 Daytona Classic National

The 2008 Daytona Classic National is now history. 

The Big Formula cars play nicer with their smaller cousins than the Spec
Wrecker Fords. The only metal to metal of the weekend was and Atlantic and a
FE got together in the kink in the infield during the first qualifying
session, which caused a 10 minute Black Flag All. Both cars were repaired
and were able to race on Sunday. 

The were eight F500's registered, however Jeff Moench wasn't able to get his
car ready with the crush of paying business and family commitments. 

The F500 Pole was secured by Bob Berman with a lap of 2:09.167 over Jim
Elder with a 2:09.363. The rest of the F500 qualified in the Teens and
beyond. 

The race was won by Bob Berman, with Jim Elder 2nd, Chris Hite 3rd, Chuck
McAbee 4th, Tommy Manalio 5h, Derek Lieb 6th, and Wayde Alfarone a DNF.
Wayde had been experiencing exhaust manifold issues all weekend. 

The Weather Steward cooperated with clear days with temperatures in the low
to mid 80's. Additionally thanks to the events scheduling all the National
events were concluded prior to lunch leaving the after lunch time to the
Enduro crowd. It was not having to wait around this year for the Enduros to
be given preference over the National competitors in track time. It was also
great not to be hassled by Daytona Security to get loaded up an leave the
track after being the last race of the event.

Tom Nehl National XXX

The 30th Tom Nehl National was held at Roebling Road Raceway outside
Savannah, GA on the March 1-2 Weekend. 

Entry from all classes was down with only 137 registered. On top of the thin
registration, there were additional no shows. The Registered 14 car grouping
of F500-FF-FV was reduced to 11 when Clint McMahan and two of the 3 Fords
were not able to attend. After the first practice session on Saturday
morning the field was shrunk to 10 as Tom Manalio had engine problems that
could not be fixed at the track. 

The Weather Steward performed his duties flawlessly! While the morning were
cool, in the 40's, once the Sun arrived the temps improved to the upper 60's
to low 70's. Very comfortable racing. 

The race was flagged off at approximately 10 AM with the lone Ford checking
out. Wayde Alfarone and I were the lone F500's with me qualified on the
pole. At the drop of the flag we both checked out from the FV field and for
19 laps Wayde filled my mirrors at nearly every turn until I had a heim
joint break in the front suspension causing me to have a snap spin on the
short chute between turns 4 & 5. That was the race as Wayde Alfarone won his
initial National Race. 

Congratulations Wayde.

End of an era

Posted: Sun Feb 17, 2008 10:48 pm    Post subject:    

 
Sheez, I saw this coming but it's still hard to
believe. Eric, your work has helped so many of us hash
out things over the years. Honestly, I think f500.org
solidified our community. Yet, gave us the the
opportunity to be devisive. 

Pretty cool. 

Thanks and see you again,

RE: F500 Digest, Vol 58, Issue 4

Eric -

Even though I have been away from the F500 scene for a few years, I still kept
subscribing to the site as I had met many fine people through your efforts.
It is true that time does march on and this is a sad event. Wish you all of
the best and thank you!

End of an era - F500 mailing list

Now that the F500 community has pretty much comfortably settled in it's new
home - the eformulacarnews.com forums, the old f500.org mailing list is
nearly silent. Last moth 98% of the posts were just spam (which of course
got filtered fro the list - I was the only one who had to wade though them
all). 

Also, as most of you know the f500.org site has been badly broken for some
time now. It was attacked by hackers a few months ago and I've never really
had the time to fix everything. On top of it all, the server that hosts
f500.org is getting pretty old and really needs to be retired or replaced. 

So, with a bit of sadness I need to announce the end of the F500 mailing
list. The list will go silent sometime in the next couple weeks. The website
will be rehosted on a shared server, but in a considerably trimmed down
form. Since there has been very, very little contributed content over the
years, and I no longer have the time to author content myself, it makes
little sense to keep maintaining news, product reviews, etc. Classifieds are
handled by the forums now, so they will be gone as well. I will get the
photo gallery back online on the new server. The server transition will take
few weeks.

I will retain the F500.org Mailing List Archives (and actually fix them so
they are searchable again) on the new site.

I do want to thank all the people who have made the f500 mailing list a fun
place to hang out. I've enjoyed hosting it and do feel a bit sad to pull the
plug. But the end of and era also signals the beginning of a new era, and I
know that Rob Howden and his team at eformulacarnews.com will do a great job
continuing to support the F500 community.
