Superb Photos of FRC's IROC Classes ..!

Post by Luke »

I started this project a few weeks ago ... with these classes raced (over time) at FRC 8-)

FRC IROC Events (RR63 to RR233) was first kicked off - January 2011 to May 2017 ... Returned May 2022 RR297

A collection of photos (which were already posted individually) during that time frame by Gordon ... are now all in One Place ;)

Here are pics of the different classes (plus amount of events) in their respective order:

Image
Porsche Cup ... 19 Events and a link ... http://ggonsalves.com/frc/forum/viewtop ... p=309#p309 ... from 2010 history.

Image
Lambo Series ... 16 Events and the 6 models presented to the host of Digital Slot-car Racing as a 2011 Birthday Gift from all the racing guys 8-)

Image

Image
Ferrari Team Challenge ... 7 Events and same cars later on as Ferrari Challenge ... 4 Events ... plus 2 in 2022.

Image

Image
Mini Challenge ... 17 Events including a racing action incident - RD227 :D

Image

Image
Scalextric GT Challenge ... 6 Events & models viewed with right & left slants

Image
Nissan Super Series ... 7 Events plus an AWESOME paint job done in Yellow on the (originally Grey) No.4 Nissan GT-R car by Ramesh 8-)

Image
Nissan Super Series Starting Grid - RD219 8-)

Image
Mixed GT Challenge ... 11 Events & raced with a combination of (3 Sets x 6 FC, PC & LS) 18 cars :!:

Image
Vintage Sport ... 1 Special Event plus these 8 slot-cars (setup for racing) are the prized & personal collection of Gordon :)

Image
Had to included my personal 6-Car Analog IROC Class of (2 F430 Ferraris, 2 Porsche 997s & 2 Lamborghini Gallardos) model cars :D

On a closing note - all these slot-cars (again I mention) carried a great amount of racing competition & entertainment through the years :)

Glad you like Gordon and it's always a winning feeling when putting these sort of statistics together :)

As noteworthy as they may be ...

What's really amazing with - is the amount of proceedings (on your part) it took/take getting all these different race days done 8-)

Here's the link ... http://ggonsalves.com/frc/forum/viewtop ... f=7&t=1474 ... to ALL Racing Days & IROC Classes combined so far :D

The IROC Classes were so THRILLING to compete in - that it had (as much as) 6 equal driver's Tie results :!:

Checkout the (third post) listing above this one - with the racer's names ...

The Classes were 3 PC & 3 MC ... you will also notice more than 2 drivers (3 in a TIE) at times :D

Here's a GR8 pic representing one of the many exciting 17 Mini Challenge Events:

The carrying-out of FRC's 89 IROC events ...

Here are the 6 racers who WON (outright) more than 1 Event :)
  • Gordon - 23
  • Luke B - 17
  • Steve - 14
  • Ramesh - 8
  • Luke - 6
  • Alex - 3
Interestingly & strange enough - the same 6 racers TIE in 6 other events (all the same Nicholas E. just squeezed in the bunch ...) and here's how the names looked ...
  • Ramesh & Gordon
    Steve & Gordon
    Steve & Ramesh
    Luke B. & Luke
    Nicholas E. & Gordon
    Steve, Gordon & Alex
Here are the other 4 racing persons who WON (outright) individual victories ...
  • Nicholas E.
    Kyle
    Peter
    David (Boo)
:arrow: I didn't include the 1 Mixed-GT & 7 Ferrari Team Winners, however names can be viewed the 4th post up 8-)

Note: The 4 groupings above of figures (71, 6, 4 & 8) equals the 89 count ;)
