  1. The Gary Johnson designed 6 lane is the premium 1/24 scale track at Thunderbird raceway. With flowing curves and good visibility the track is deceptively easy. However the back part of the track is difficult to read and the changing camber across the bridge is challenging to get right. Built in 2014, it's first National event was the "South Australian Scaleauto 1/24 Scale Endurance Championships", 1/12/2014. Not without it's own controversy, the track surface was not targeted for foam tyre racing, and even though it responded to race goo, it was very difficult to clean. It also destroyed tyres. Following the 2017 APC on Webber, Thunderbird raceway agreed to re-coat the track to be more suited to goo. We now rotate between the two tracks, keeping things interesting, and allowing us to make use of this great track.

  3. Those of us racing in SA would have been to sad to hear of Mick Spys passing away on Sunday. Mick cut an imposing figure at the raceway and wasn't shy of telling "how it is". However, I thought of him as a gentle giant who's bark was worse than his bite. He was also a fierce competitor and a trouble to beat on any day. He was known to race with one of the other SA clubs even though we had expected to see him race more with us. I was looking forward to meeting with Mick soon as we rally enthusiasts for next years events. Sadly that opportunity and Mick is now gone, but not forgotten. He will be missed. RIP "Big" Mick Spy.

  8. The Webber track is the older of the 2 six lane tracks with a somewhat checkered history! Built in circa 2012 it was the headline track for the 2012 Scale Model Nationals. In original format the driver position was at one end which seems uncommon for most large tracks. The size shape and driving position were dictated by the space available, with Thunderbird Raceway already having a number of large tracks including a Blue King. Since then it has been lengthened, the driving position moved to the side and dual (alternative) lap counter dead strips, not to mention some routing issues improved. The latter being added in part due to the 2017 APC, as reverse direction was required for that event. While the Brabham track is newer, complex and yet more "open", the Webber in some ways is more challenging to succeed on. Crashes will punish the driver with marshals struggling to reach your car under three bridged sections. High speeds leading into a multi-apex esses/"chicane" can and do end in disaster when racing is hot! The Webber is our "Nรผrburgring". ๐Ÿ™‚ In 2012, courtesy of ABC Adelaide The 2012 Nationals How well did I do in 2012? What do you think? ๐Ÿ™„
  9. Our club is a 1/24 "true scale" focused club formed circa 2014 with origins in 1/32 scale racing at Thunderbird Raceway. Thunderbird raceway is a commercial slotcar venue and our "home" track, racing on the 2 six lane tracks "Webber" and "Brabham". Club Racing includes most, if not all, nationally contested model classes in both short "sprint" racing brackets and team endurance racing. Racing is open to all comers and we welcome new members.

    And before you know it, its over! Thanks to Brooksy for keeping the event running like a well oiled machine. Thanks to Bill J for helping run the FLM event. A few picks. Hopefully Booksy will load a few I don't have, like the FLM results. Thanks to our Sponsors: Thunderbird Raceway, Slotworx, Ace Hobbies. All our sponsors gave generously to make a great event!

    Some Team ratbag pics! Andrew has built some new cars with a "little" help from Benno... We'll pick the best of what cars we have after final practice.

    Minor correction on the schedule as posted. The Raceway is not expected to be open before 1PM on Friday. So if your in town early Friday, don't head to the raceway before 1PM unless you want to lurk in the parking lot. ๐Ÿคญ

    Wow, matching cars! Maximum effort! What a great job. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ This is the sort of enthusiasm that makes slotcar events become "an event". We could do with more of this! ๐Ÿ˜‰
