    Bathurst in July. National Club Challenge

    Pagey, can you put outer towners in Porsche as Jack Ian 1 and 2 Paul Alvaro please.
  3. Please also take note of the Porsche race . It is a once through the lanes at 20 minutes per lane . So a 2 man team will obviously have a driver change at the 10 min mark under green . If you have nominated a 4 man team it will be a driver change under green every 5 minutes. Maybe you might change your nomination with that in mind ? Happy to go with either option has Brooksy has worked out the program to suit 16 teams if required. Please let us know if you do want the nomination changed as soon as possible. Cheers Pagey
  4. Please make sure you have a close look at start and finish times of schedule. Due to the amount of racing and track time that Jason has organised for us itโ€™s important to be on time and allow travel times to and from if you are traveling especially from interstate.We cannot hold up the event for late competitors. ShellHarbour Junction railway station is approximately 2hrs from Sydney airport. The train actually runs out of the domestic terminal. You have one change at Wolli Creek then straight through to Shellharbour Junction on the South Coast Line. We can pick you up from station only 2km from venue. 1.Go into Apps and download the Opal Travel App. 2. Go to trip planner. 3. In current location type Sydney Domestic Airport Station 4. In destination type Shellharbour Junction 5. Times will be shown - select Departing Now it select date and time. You can get a ticket at the station booth or use your credit card at the train station. 6. If using card, make sure you have tapped on and off at station entry and exits. Looking forward to catching up and racing again at the Bull Ring . Cheers Pagey
  5. Thanks Brooksy for stepping up as our race director again . Your professionalism is already evident with the program. Really appreciate your efforts. ๐Ÿง๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

    New Porsche Cup Wing Mounts

    New wing mounts for the Porsche Cup car are available, and will replace the old mount in new kits. The new mounts feature a hooked body mount for positive location and a larger glue area for the wing. They are also similar to the wing mounts on the 1 to 1 cars but a bit shorter to keep them the same height as the original mounts. Both the new and the original mounts will be legal for racing. Weight is 0.1 grams heavier than the old mount, per pair, but you won't need globs of glue to hold them to the wing, and they're almost impossible to pull out of the body. PM me for more information An early heavier prototype. Larger glue area for the wing

    River City 12 hour Enduro

    Track is not owned by RiverCity though, its owned by Werner, Simon & Andrew. Its not as simple as just painting some lines as the finish on the track isnt painted, its a textured vinyl wrap and as stated the track is multi layout capable. I think the only possible solution could be to pinstripe the lanes with vinyl, but would it adhere correctly to the existing stuff ?? I actually dont find the marking of lanes to really be an issue

    River City 12 hour Enduro

    I have not seen the track , I think why would you mark any track that has been CNC that would be great not, put lines on it like every other track if moved re do it no big deal as we all know tracks do not sell fast big ones. Mark you are spot on.

    River City 12 hour Enduro

    Make the dots bigger and more legible then - or redo the stripes when the track is moved - surely itโ€™s not that hard?

  20. 16 racers tonight . A few away with the holidays and Jim crook ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคฎ Get better soon Jimmy. We continued the 1/32 Aussie V8 class and MZ Plafit classes. First up was the Aussie race cars . Brooks was again a cut above but when the bonnet went up he had the wrong donk ๐Ÿง๐Ÿ˜ฌ I donโ€™t know if it was going to make a difference but it does have to be apples with apples . So this week again a disqualification. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ Pagey was next so 1st place . Benno in a Pagey loaner for 2nd and Chris for 3rd . A really nice drive by Serge also in the same car as Ben for a solid 4th place . ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Dunlop MZ was a great shoot out with Belly pushing Captain all the way to the end . Jules was fast and running strong along with Jamie sugar ant ๐Ÿœ. Geoff also keeping them honest. Results ended up with Captain ๐Ÿ‘จโ€โœˆ๏ธ 1st , Belly for 2nd just point 4 behind and Jules for 3rd . Super MZ was a nail bitter all the way. A four car shot out between Chris , Ben , Pagey and Brooksy going down to the wire. Bad luck hit Ben when he was out in front , dropping in back in the pack . Brooksy suffered a jump start losing a lap as a penalty also . Results ended up with Chris 1st , Benno for 2nd and Pagey for 3rd . The laps between the four cars was nothing. Great racing and very close . Just a reminder that next week is Friday night due to Anzac Day. Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Easter. Thanks for the support. See you next week. Cheers Pagey

    2019 Qld GT championships

    Round 2 Queensland GT Championships This is scheduled for Sunday the 28th of April..( the weekend after Easter.) Shop opens 8am, Scrutineering 8.45, so racing can get underway by 9am. This race series has been very well received, the following committee has now been formed to ensure rules are enforced and for the smooth running of the event. Race Day committee: Noel Batson, Gary Johnson, Bruce Ambler Scrutineering: Werner Wittsack with assistance Race control: Phil Morrow, Simon Wakelin with assistance from committee members. Publicity and pointscore: Kim Axton. RACE FORMAT: All heats are 8 minutes, drivers race 4 heats each, no driver changes during a bracket. All classes will be run to Round Robyn format. When on a Bye cars must be returned to Parc Ferme. No working on cars in Parc Ferme or during lane changes. Classes are listed below. 1/24th Scaleauto GT Scaleauto - Ams have the choice of either SC-8000 or SC-8003 chassis, but Pro's can only race the new SC-8003. Rules for the SC-8000 are unchanged so you still have to run the Enduro motor. The new SC-0029 Sprinter Junior motor is only eligible for the SC-8003. Body weights and interior's have changed for SC-8003 so check rules: www.acehobbies.com.au/galleries/category/16-2018regulations-124scaleautogt And yes, I have been asked this a few times, Am's can run the new SA-8003 to 2019 specs. 1/24th Slotworx Porsche Cup Cars Slotworx Porsche Cup cars. replace's the V8 class we ran last year. Body and chassis upgrade kits are available from you local track, Ace hobbies or direct from Slotworx. Note, These cars run the SRP long-can motor and a T plate specific to this class. Check rules here: www.acehobbies.com.au/galleries/category/13-2018regulations-124slotworxporschecup 1/24th Lexan GT3 and GT3a GT3 class is for those that nominate to be in the pro class and GT3a is for Am's. To encourage new racers and make an easier price point GT3a cars cannot run a suspension motor box. Don't worry if you have an existing chassis with a motor box, simply remove the springs and bolt the box solid to the chassis plate. Lap times at Red Racer with suspension and non suspension are very similar. Check rules here: www.acehobbies.com.au/galleries/category/14-2018regulations-124lexangt3 Note: Am's.. A reminder you must remove springs and lock down the back end of of your chassis to compete in AM. if you have a hybrid SLP2 /Slotworx Pod conversion the rear of the chassis must be locked down with the Plafit aluminium side plate's or similar.. NOT the flexi ones. Racing fee's this year have been reduced to $10 per class, thanks to trophy sponsorship. You may chose to run one or all the classes on the day, and even mix drivers between classes, it's up to you. Team names are important, Stick to your team name for the series.. as per last year you may have a relief drivers step in for you or your team mate if you are down a driver due to other commitments so keep the team alive by not changing names. Drivers ratings. As per last year am drivers may choose to run in a pro class but Pro drivers cannot race for points in Am. The Venue for all events will be at River City Raceway at 300 Oxley Avenue Margate. Shop opens 8.00 am, Scrutineering 8.45am (or before if you're ready) so racing can start 9am. The order of racing will be Scaleauto, Slotworx and then GT3. All heats are 8 minutes with drivers sharing the driving, 4 heats each with no driver changes during a bracket. See you trackside, Kim

    Track line marker

    Pagey, you don't know what you're missing. With a decent line marker you just walk around each lane, once. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
