The competition wrapped up Thursday with the running of Clown Race and Sport Goodyear.

Clown Race rules specify a standard design, the PDQ Clown, a 50-plus-year-old design currently kitted by Brodak Manufacturing and PDK. Any engine can be used, up to a .19 displacement. Engine preference has become RC car conversions and FAI combat motors. Unlike other racing events, the winner is determined by who has flown the most number of laps in a specified time period.

Welcome to the 2019 CL Racing Nationals! I’m happy to be back to do the reporting after a few years off. Thanks to Melvin Schuette for his Nats reporting, as well as Brenda Schuette and their business, MBS Model Supply, that continues to be an invaluable source for specialty CL supplies.

This year’s racing schedule follows that of the last few Nationals. It’s reduced in time and has consolidated events to reflect the declining interest in CL Racing.
