Thumbs up BajaFest 2009 "The Birth of 1/5 scale HPI Oval Racing"

This is a a short bit Retro, but I wanted to add this anyway. 2009 was my first trip to Bajafest & I had purposely built my car for the EDM oval racing. In getting there, I was amazed at the facility, & couldn't wait to get racing. No doubt that the oval EDM class dominated the attention of everyone there. The entire event was great, but the speeds & cool bodies in this specific class made for one Awesome show.

I've done quite a bit of racing in different forms, but this was the absolute most fun I've had on a race track. Doing well help that a bit too, but regardless this is big fun, with just a big of speeds. Most of the drivers were very good as well, but by finals time, you had better have your car ready & your driving shoes on.

My personal best record for an event. 1st heat finished 2nd - 2nd heat finished 1st - A-Main finished a close second to Mr. Hostile Rob himself. It was an event & set of races I'll never forget. My freebie GO Pro camera ( Thanks to Hostile Hobby / Baja Modifiers ) even come in handy. With different angles on video, I had to do some editing & create one killer race video. Look for more new ideas & camera angles for this coming season ...

Very nice post. I missed the first year there but was able to attend the next two and will be there this year. The oval is awsome. We had such a great time racing the past two years. Here is a pic of this years car all painted looking pretty.
