    Great line up of cars and drivers in GT3. Noel top qualified with a Plafit SLP2 with no ( yes, NO) motorbox. Melbourne racer Mark Pollard won the event with a SLP2/SW built by Werner. The big surprise was how well the big Viper body worked... 2nd was Jason Brooks with a Johnson chassis and a Honda Accura.. 3rd Mark fox with a De Watcher and an Audi body. PIcs are the winning cars

    On the case Victory - will let you know if he is available. Just got a call and he can't make as he has tickets for the Jets game. Anybody else out there looking for a drive please put you hand up.

    Hi FoxBox - that would be great if you could help us out with a possible replacement for Pierre at such short notice. Please let me know how you get on.

    Team Nissan please let me know if you want a replacement for Pierre as I may have a good one for you - I will chase him up if you want - seriously you won't be disappointed as he has won a lot on this track and has raced these cars as well last year.

    Just got off the phone to Pierre .... Unfortunately he wont make it this weekend, a business trip to India last week has seen him hospitalised this week. His pleas of an early release have fallen on deaf ears and the doctors will not release him until they are comfortable he is well enough to do so.

    Hi Mark Nick Girdlestone & I spoke a few months ago & decided to team up in FLM but forgot to tell anyone. So can you put us down as Kembla Grange Old Boys,refering to our days when we raced Speedway together on the South coast. Nick is also responsible for getting me back into Slot cars in the '90's when we worked in the Steelworks & he only lived a few streets away & lent me a Parma flexi chassis to use as a guide to help me build my first slot track. Bring on the weekend Cheers Jimmy๐Ÿ™‚

    2019 HSC Endurance Championships

    Hi All The finalised entries have been updated in my original post and also remember that there are links there to the rule set we are using for this race weekend. Here is the outline of the complete program for the Lexan Shootout (aka HSC Enduro weekend). There may be a little tweaking here and there but essentially this will be it with adjustments if scrutineering and track-calls (and other variable portions of the program) take more or less time. It is a lot of racing and a lot of fun to be packed into the 3 days and in particular Saturday will be busy. Accordingly it will be imperative that all racers cooperate in being on time and ready for their events, available for marshalling when required and otherwise being aware and responsive to any other directives such as organising for photo ops and judging Concours etc. Note in particular the motor hand-out schedule and the controls relating to same. Motor Handouts and General Firstly a reminder that Werner of ACE hobbies has kindly supplied ALL the motors for this weekendโ€™s racing - a big thank you Werner. I have run all the motors for an hour at low voltage but as you know these motors take a while to run in. I have run Cheetah 4โ€™s through 4 Hour Retro Enduros and they still have two tracks on the comm. I suspect the SRP25L is the same but as you canโ€™t see the comm this is conjecture. The schedule allows for a test period after the allocation and fitting of FLM and Porsche Cup motors. Once received motors may be run on a power source if desired but please no other intervention. For the motor handout each race class will have the appropriate number of motors to be allocated on display. The motor selection will be by James picking out a marked ice cream stick from a bag which will then correspond the ID mark on your motor. There will be a very limited number of replacement motors that will be available in exchange for your original motor and $20 payable James (if you are unhappy with your original draw). These motors will also be marked and any replacements recorded as per above. Hopefully this wonโ€™t be necessary as these motors are very even in my experience. GT3 Handouts These motors will be available from 3:00 on Friday by draw as follows: - You pay James the entry fee for the race ($20). James will then blind select a marker for you. All motors will be marked and numbered: - 1 to final number of entrants (29). The number of your motor will be recorded on a spreadsheet for tech, you sign for receipt of that motor. FLM Handouts These motors will be available by draw during the GT3 races you are NOT participating in or marshalling for as follows: - You pay James the entry fee for the race ($40). James will then blind select a marker for that team. All motors will be marked and numbered: - 1 to final number of entrants (14). The number of your motor will be recorded on a spreadsheet for tech, you sign for receipt of that motor. Porsche Cup Handouts These motors will be available by draw during FLM race you are NOT participating in or marshalling for as follows: - You pay James the entry fee for the race ($50 per team member). James will then blind select a marker for that team. All motors will be marked and numbered: - 1 to 9 for the 9 teams entered. The number of your motor will be recorded on a spreadsheet for tech, you sign for receipt of that motor. Race Scheduling and Marshalling GT3 There will be 4 races comprising 8 brackets of 4 minutes composed (with entry numbers of 29) as follows: - A Main Qualifiers 1 to 8 B Main Qualifiers 9 to 15 C Main Qualifiers 16 to 22 D Main Qualifiers 23 to 29 Racing will start with the D Main . The following Table sets out who is racing and who is marshalling during any particular main. Notice that all participants are scheduled to marshal once and have two consecutive โ€˜inactiveโ€™ mains where they will not be racing or marshalling. I have rejigged my original table for this process to enable each team to have two consecutive 'inactive' GT3 Mains. Teams are able to pay FLM entry fees and get their FLM motors and fit them (and run them on a power source if desired) during their inactive periods. FLM There will be 2 races comprising 8 brackets of 10 minutes composed (with entry numbers of 14) as follows: - A Main Qualifiers 1 to 7 B Main Qualifiers 8 to 14 As there are two drivers per Team one will be driving and one will be marshalling. At the 5 minute mark there will be a track-call and drivers swapped. Both team members drive for 5 minutes each on all lanes โ€“ no cherry picking drivers for lanes. Racing will start with the B Main. Teams are able to pay Porsche Cup entry fees and get their motors and fit them (and run them on a power source if desired) during the Main they are not participating in. Parc Ferme If is not clear from the above schedule this is what happens. When your car is submitted to Tech Scrutiny it will then MUST be in Parc Ferme at ALL times unless you are qualifying, racing or working on it under Green Flag. This will be the case until all races of a particular class have been run and results finalised - no exceptions. Penalty for transgressions of this condition - 10 Laps Deduction. Tech Scrutiny All cars will be issued with a 'Tech Sheet' identity form which needs to submitted with the car for tech and remain with the car whilst in Parc Ferme. Please ensure your car is legal prior to Tech to ensure a smooth and quick process. Porsche Cup cars will be teched after the race to ensure the car is compliant wrt it being complete and at correct weight (160 grams) with min (0.5mm) clearance as per Porsche Cup Rules. Please ensure that your car is legal at the end of the race to avoid risk of disqualification. There will be no post-race tech inspection for GT3 or FLM although any car that is riding too low at any point will need to be removed and rectified under Green. Working on Cars Once a car has been submitted to Tech NO work may be done on it EXCEPTING: - (1) Qualifying Cars are available from Parc Ferme two qualifiers from when you are due. First up will have their car for 3 minutes and second up gets theirs 1.5 minutes before the first qualifier is up. You may give the car a once-over by checking the body is properly fitted, oil it, adjust braids and juice them and clean the tyres. (2) Lane Change You may clean the tyres (tape only) and adjust (not replace) the braids. (3) Under Green Flag You may do anything under Green Flag. If working under Green and a lane change occurs you must not continue working on it until Green continues. Penalty for transgressions of these conditions - 10 Laps Deduction. Point Score Points will be allocated to all races as follows: - For the title 'Lexan King' for 2019 it will be an addition of all points scored as a team member or individually. In the event of a tied score this coveted title will be awarded to whoever finished higher in the GT3 race. Trophies Trophies are being supplied by James Colfax of HSC Raceway as follows. Well I think that covers it please yell out if you think I have missed or misinterpreted anything.
