-What's New- Site news as of July 22, 2018-
Sorry for all of the text on this page, but I wanted to reach out to the website viewers by doing something interactive! I've added a simple poll below to get an idea of how many people are viewing this site actively, and if there is interest I would like to start doing something daily until the races! As I have access to the preliminary entry list for 2018, would the viewers be interested in me doing a "racer a day" page with a picture and short description of some of the racers that are going to be competing this year?? If there is interest I will surely do it!
Another update! I cleaned up most of the pages and filled them with new information over the past few days. I personally had an exclusive look at the entries for 2018 on July 14th, and they went live on reports.airrace.org just yesterday. Funny enough, the entries were taken off of the website until they are more or less "finalized" in mid-August or so. This is most likely because of the current 2018 Unlimited Class comprising of only 13 racers at the moment. There will almost guaranteed be more planes racing in September, and RARA does not want people to think that the 13 planes will be representing the whole field this year. So fingers crossed that there will be some more additions over the next few weeks, enough to get a bronze field like last year! Back onto site updates... The "'18 News" tab will be updated relatively often as I get more information, whether it be rumors or directly from RARA. The "2018 Unlimited Gold" tab has been updated to reflect who I think the competitors will be this year. It will be updated with more information in mid-August as well. The poll will most likely go live once it is updated. Most importantly, "Other Classes" has been fully updated with the highlights for each class this year. Having a good look at the entries, I was able to determine what each field will look like and who has a chance at competing for Gold in each class. It is pretty thorough and I would definitely check it out! More coming soon...
