    For the rules that state motor options (eg F1 and FLM), where do we find the actual list of what to use for this event?
  8. Last week
  9. Round two for the month of 1/32 V8 and Slotworx Porsche. We had 17 racers ready for the nights battles. First up the Aussie V8โ€™s were entertaining and the second week in everyone was more tuned up . Some very nice close heat battles with plenty of room for overtakes making it interesting. JJ was very quick and in a good battle with Ben, Pagey , Chris, Clinton and Rod . Ben was unlucky with a broken lead wire halting his run for the top step. JJ with a great drive secured first over Pagey for second. Rod with a solid third rounding off the podium. Clinton and Chris not far back . Our Dunlop series was next up . As always very enjoyable and entertaining racing . With Cam back from a few weeks away and a hungry pack ready to try and get to Super series. Cam was very fast and consistent as per normal. So the hungry pack weโ€™re fighting hard for the minors. Mick with some of his best driving won four heats in a row on his way to a top quality second . Third place to Troy with Serg very close behind . Super was fast and furious. No room for errors up here with any bad luck putting you well back in the pack . JJ with a great night continues with plenty of speed and good luck to take home the double win . Well done mate. Ben was next over the line for another podium and Pagey finishing off for third. The rest of the field very close with nothing really in it . Thanks to Ben again for race director roll again . Thanks to all for the track pack up again . Big thanks to Serg for set up and cleaning the track . Hope everyone enjoys Bathurst and the Red Bulls are on top. Cheers Pagey

    2020 lexan shootout

    I agree guys we need gt3 to be single drivers again that was a lot of fun and Iโ€™m sure others liked it that way too

    2020 lexan shootout

    Lol ... well this shows you are more attentive than i Kim !! I totally missed the lack of single driver race, which i agree with you ... it added that something extra to the weekend. Is it possible, given the success of this year, to run it verbatim for next year ?

    2020 lexan shootout

    Bugger! ... I really liked the GT3 single driver format for the GT3 class Fox... and I was really hoping to get that stupid "Lexan Crown" off Noel for next year. I really though the format you had worked out for this year was good.. and anyway.. don't you need the individual score to work out who gets the paper hat?
  15. Hi all, There has been a minor regulation adjustment withing the 1/24 Historic's class as Plafit stopped the production of their 7mm wide RTR Front Wheels. Effective immediately the new front rims will now only be 6mm wide which results in a 7mm wide tire width. Therefore the old minimum of 8mm wide fronts has been changed to 7mm within the regulations. Cheers Werner

  17. This is when you can appreciate how big my garage is ๐Ÿง๐Ÿ˜ณ. Thanks again for the help packing up track the other night . Happy ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿฅณ
  18. Change of month and also the classes at the BullRing. Being school holidays we had a few away . Family first is always the best option . 1/32 Aussie V8 was first up . We donโ€™t run any other 1/32 classes at the BullRing. The brain child of Andrew from our Qld Narangba friends . A National class using the plafit chassis with a SRP 20 motor . Quick enough to get your full attention and quite a driving challenge. Ben continues his relentless run of form leading the way with lap times near record pace . A good battle for the minor placings between JJ , Pagey and Chris . Finishing in that order with next to nothing in it . The Dunlop series of our Slotworx Porsche was next . Sorting out the classes with 7 runners in Super and 6 in Dunlop. Rod unfortunately with the numbers and break down got the unlucky dog going back to Dunlop after finishing second last the week before in super . So the racing was very close with four drivers tossing the lead around . Jamie , Jules , Rodney and Gregg with plenty of tough close racing through the heats . They finished in that order and basically all on the same lap with nothing in it . Awesome stuff and proves again that Dunlop is a tough group to breakout of and up to super class . Seven drivers on the grid ready for the green light in super tonight . One or two mistakes and you will be off the podium in this cut throat class . Very even racing with plenty of close battles. Pagey with accident damage in a early heat dropped 6 laps . Serg also had some car issues. It ended up being a shoot out at the rear of the field to not come last and drop back to Dunlop next week . Serg gave me plenty of racing pushing me hard to just get over him in the last heat . Bugger he has to drop down next week . Up front it was a great drive again by Ben . Getting a double win on the night . Well done mate and you are certainly on a roll the last few months. JJ with a great night also, with a second and another podium for the night . Clinton back in form with a very solid third. Chris again with a bit of bad luck for fourth. Thanks Ben for race director and computer work . Also to everyone for the track pack up . Appreciate the assistance in keeping up stairs management happy . Hopefully we get a full grid next week and look forward to week two of our new classes. Cheers Pagey
  19. Results from tonights racing , Week 1 October Plafit Aussie V8 1/32 Supercars & SlotWorx Porsche : T - Aussie V8 32s-2019-10-03T20.29.30.xlsx T - Slotworx Porsche-2019-10-03T21.14.56.xlsx ( DUNLOP ) T - Slotworx Porsche-2019-10-03T21.50.57.xlsx ( SUPER ) Some very close racing and exciting side by side action all night
  20. Thanks Ben for posting up the race report. We had a few away for one reason or another and still managed 16 drivers . It was our last night of the current classes. MZ plafit first up with Ben out front again and the fight continues between Pagey and Chris . Nothing all series between us and tonight was no different. Pagey just getting over Chris with Rod again for a strong 4th . Dunlop Can Am next up and always enjoyable watching the battles . Really great racing in a few heats from Serg , Jim and Gregg. Also plenty of entertainment from Vito . The long tail Porsche is very quick and once Vito got his rhythm he also had some great battles . Not always ending quite right at times but great viewing. Jim taking a good win with a fast finishing Serge for second and Gregg with a quality third . Also a very good drive by Clinton S down from Sydney for his third visit . Well done mate . ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Super Can Am was very quick . There is know place to rest in this class on track with this field of drivers . With no room for de slots or you will find yourself falling back through the field very fast . Ben giving us all a chance for a change with motor power issues. Pagey having a clean run to get the top step for the first time for quite a while. Chris was very fast and the difference was a couple of offs in the end getting him second. JJ was extremely fast and set fastest times on a few lanes for the night . It was his Offโ€™s also that made the difference. Ronโ€™s promotion up from Dunlop last week giving him a taste of the super pace . He did well with a good drive for fourth place . Next week will see the return of 1/32 plafit V8 and Slotworx Porsche.Thanks Ben for running the night as race director. Looking forward to catching up with everyone again next week. One of the best parts of our nights is hanging with good mates. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Cheers Pagey
