  • This Just In - RARA Drops Jet Racing For 2006 - Unconfirmed!!

    We are getting unconfirmed reports from reliable sources that RARA has decided to kill Jet Racing for the 2006 season...

    Adding to this unconfirmed report with "EDITORIAL SPECULATION" since we also today received a flurry of press releases from the Rocket Racing League, we'll pose the speculative question, could a replacement of Jets with Rockets be in the offing?

    Please, accept the above with the added qualifiers.. "Unconfirmed" and "Speculative"...

    Feel free to hash it about.. if we're spot on.. remember where you heard it first.. if we're wrong..

    Err...



    We will attempt to contact RARA for clarification and or confirmation as soon as possible.

    well, it would be an odd change and a bit of a scary one. but it would be very interesting to see.

    but i still think they should bring back t-28 racing

    an unlimited lite class would be awesome too
    heh heh alriiiight

          No such info on RARA site at this time. There is an announcement that says Rockets in 2007. Did hear that there is a search for a new assistant to M. Houghten. Ellen Ward is retiring as of 17 March.

                    No big loss. Maybe they can schedule the F1 guys an hour later so they can get a little more crowd exposure.

                      Although I personally think rocket EZ racing is completely retarded, the exposure it would bring to Reno (even if a total flash in the pan) might just be worth it.

                      I thought the jets were dumb, anyway. Booooooooring. Unless, of course, there are any L-39 owners that want to let me race one. In that case, I'm in!

                          AG planes would be great, but they probably would have to change the rules as many of them would fly too low!
