What is Control Line (CL) Sportsman Goodyear Racing? This is a fair question, so let’s break it down. Although the concept of CL flying is generally already understood, CL
Racing may not be familiar to everyone. In CL Racing, two or three airplanes are flown
simultaneously in the same circle.
Everyone must complete a prescribed number of laps, and within that time, several
pit stops must be made. This means the engine stops, the airplane lands, the mechanic
refuels and restarts the model, and the airplane takes off again. The airplane that finishes
in the shortest amount of time is the winner.
Goodyear refers to a specific AMA competition event, the formal name of which is
Scale Racing. The models must be 1/8-scale profile renditions of actual racing airplanes
that compete or competed in the International Formula 1 air-racing class, hence the
name Scale Racing.
