Classic Racing! The Golden Years

We did something like this at Flite Fest 2016. I flew a Folkerts SK4 that was decked out in glass and resin. Flew nicely, as did many of the other entries. @wilmracer is still flying his Caudron. I tried flying the Folkerts with him this spring and ran into lots of problems. I need to get it back in the air now that I've got most of the problems figured out.

Yup! Caudron needs another round of patches as it is not the easiest to self-launch, but she could be ready to go in another hour or two :)

Those races were a great time!

Why not do something on the "Golden Age of Air Racing"
Are you talking like pylon racing or like the old timey cross-country stuff? I was hoping to get them interested in the latter, kinda like the movie Planes and taking place at Edgewater. With a whole golf course they could easily have several locations to take-off and land.

If you mean something else, please elaborate a little. I really like the idea of race styles other than the standard Red Bull air races (I like those too, but they've been done).
