     What you can expect from the Snowbirds
We have a brand new racing surface each year with brand new carpet.  There are no local track champions because the Snowbirds come just once a year.  Everyone is faced with the same racing  variables.  This makes for a great competitive race.  We have a challenging course for on-road racers and a fast oval track.  We have a professional and courteous Snowbird staff that will make sure your weekend of racing is everything you expect and deserve.  We also have fair and honest tech and will check motors and equipment throughout the week to make sure you are racing against fair competitors.   Drivers from around the world come to the Snowbird Nationals and you get to see them race.  We have several co-sponsors that attend the Snowbird  Nationals that are here for you.  Ask them your race questions and ask the 'pros' about their racecars.  This race is for everyone.  Come to Orlando in February and have a great week with us.

     2002 Winners Inducted into Race Rock
The winning bodies of the A-mains were put on display at the World  famous and popular
 restaurant in Orlando, Florida.  Millions of people will see the nice Snowbird display there with a beautiful glass case highlighting our race again for 2002.  These bodies will remain there for a year and will be exchanged with 2003's winners.

  RCCA Article on the 2002 'Birds
Another great article was in the R/C magazine this year on the Snowbirds thanks to Peter Vierra and Car Action.  You can see the article here.  Make sure to get your own copy.  See other cool stuff found in RCCA from the Snowbird Nationals below:

  Thanks To All the Co-Sponsors
Thanks to all our sponsors as they contribute greatly in the race's success.  Without the variety of support received we would not have the great race that we have.  You will be greeted on Manufacture's row by a large variety of companies with the world's best R/C drivers here so you can meet them, ask race questions, and see new and exciting race products.  The best oval and on-road racers come together for one fantastic race weekend.  One of the great features of the 'Birds the past few years is the amount of new racers that come and experience the race.  This race is for everyone - new racers especially.  We hope to see you here for this once-a-year grand event.
