  3. Hi All Some GREAT news. This post made by James on HSC Facebook page: Hornsby Slot Car's will be reopen as from Wednesday the 1st July under Covid 19 regulations, club racing as per the calendar with changes to be advised to catch up with missed rounds of the SRC, and to split some other classes to reduce the amount of people in the store at one time. More info on this to come in the next week or so, Wednesday night trucks will go ahead as planned for the 1st. If you are not well, do the right thing and stay away for the safety of all. Let's have some fun. Cheers

  7. Great to be back last night . Really awesome to catch up with great mates and enjoy racing plus plenty of laughs throughout the night . Gregg was on fire with plenty of funny stuff coming from him . We managed 13 runners so not a bad number for the restart . Our thoughts also go out to Rodney recovering from a new ball joint in his hip . Also very sad news that Jules lost his Dad unexpectedly last night . Condolences mate to you and family . Ben had a senior moment locking his keys in house so missed out on the return to racing . Rest assured he is coming back as all his RC paint jobs as not turned him to the dark side as plenty were worried about. Looking forward to next week and hopefully seeing a few more faces . Cheers Pagey

    Hey I'm looking for a couple of plafit 1300 chasis If anyone has some that they are willing to part with
  10. So after the shut down and virus restrictions Iโ€™m looking at starting racing again on the 18th June . Hopefully everyone has stayed safe and healthy throughout this time . I know itโ€™s been very tough for a few in our group so it will be great to get back , catch up, plus racing again . The classes will remain the same as planed for June being Scaleauto and Slotworx V8 . Looking forward to seeing everyone. Please donโ€™t come if youโ€™re sick or been around others that are sick just to be cautious. I also have new neighbours so think about considerate parking please. Cheers Pagey

  25. Glen - this is the correct decision for you and Jo to make to protect Matt's health. As a member of the "Bull Ring" racing group I fully support you and your family in this approach and racing should only resume when we are past the worst of the pandemic.
  26. I'm not sure where this fits but they are all Slotworx Cars, with various bodies. Bob is from Port Macquarie and has about 20 V8s and over 50 in total.
  27. its hard to fathom really but we cant dodge the facts, look out for each other , make sensible decisions. i am hopeful of a reasonably quick recovery for us all. race ya later (as arkin would say). All the best deb and pete.
