  1. Hi All As you can see its on again after many trials and tribulations so lets make it a BIG one. Any questions etc please respond in this thread. Cheers FoxBox
  2. Hi All, Well with Covid running amok yet again I have the sad task of yet again announcing a cancelled/postponed race event. GEOGHEGAN TROPHY - EASTER BIG BASH EVENT POSTPONED Hip Hip Hooray - postponement over - lets go RACING This event will now be held at a future date with in October with the same format as explained above. Cheers FoxBox.
  3. Hi All A few things to help you along. Gearing is per current regs with the nominated pinion for the Slotworx Cup Car being 13T - here is a summary for you: - Points will be awarded as follows for each event your best 3 results will be summed to ascertain the Geoghegan Trophy winner for 2022. Summary table of the car regs for this event: - The full version of the regs for each class are posted via links above - be one of the few who reads such things and any questions please let me know in this thread. Any disparity between this summary table and the full version of the regs (other than the 'yellow highlights') indicates that I have made an error in constructing the table in which case the full version of the regs will prevail. Please note GT3 min weight for this event is 155 gms so throw some of the lead out! Cheers FoxBox
  4. Hi Bruce, You are correct; you get to choose your starting lane based on on your qualifying time - 1st Q gets first pick, 2nd Q gets second pick etc. So I guess it should be called "Lane Selection" and not "Lane Draw" but the process has been known since ever as "Lane Draw" whether it has been a random process or ascertained by qualifying position. Hope that this clarifies the process for you. Cheers
  5. Hi All Here are the updated rules for this class which incorporate the components now available from the release of the Gen II kits and upgrade kits. Other changes are that max rear tyre size has been increased to 28.5mm (ie as they come from the packet) and the motor rule has been modified to allow track owners and race convenors to choose any 13D long or short motor. I have also included some measurements to assist in setting up and scrutineering the wheelbase and polar length when using Gen II components. Please note that Garry Johnson; the owner of the Slotworx marque; has authorised me to post these regulations.
  6. Hi All Here is the Program which runs from Thursday 20th to Sunday 23rd October: - Cheers FoxBox

  9. Hi All, It is my pleasure to announce that finally over the coming Easter weekend period October: - Thurs 20 Fri 21 Sat 22 Sun 23 the Seagulls Slot Racing Club is hosting a sprint race series for the following classes Plafit Historic Slotworx Porsche Cup Lexan GT3 Retro CanAm The historic Geoghegan Trophy will also be up for grabs. This trophy has been won by the cream of Australian slot car racers (and also myself) since 1970. Here is a listing of previous winners so you can see the history of this piece: - The Seagulls slot shop has a HUGE range of stock and all in all the facility is by a long way the best set up for slot racing I have ever seen and with the restaurant and bar downstairs plus loads of parking available it is just sensational. The track itself is fast with a few tricks but overall very easy to learn. Also each lane on the track has its own power supply so no little surges when a car or two de-slot and the lap counters are set up with light beams so no dead spot which is sensational also. So watch this space for the program etc and start getting you equipment together. Cheers FoxBox
  10. Hi All, The racing at Seagulls over this weekend was fantastic with the combination of a great Race Centre provided by Kim Axton, superb facilities for eating and drinking provided by Seagulls Club and lots of race action and camaraderie provided by the racers. I am certain that I can say without a doubt that a good time was had by all and new friends made by all also - a great weekend all-round. Retro CanAm Twelve entries enabled 2 races of 6. B Main Great tussle between Alan and Kim in this race with Alan just prevailing. A Main This was a hard fought race indeed with only 7 laps between the top 6 finishers but it was the local gun Rusty who held off TQ man Jack and Cody. Wrap up Rusty more or less had the race under control at the start of the 6th bracket but was pushed hard all the way by Jack and Cody to finally earn an excellent win. Porsche Cup A full field of 7 entries here. GT3 Another full field. That sums up this event for this year. Cheers FoxBox
  11. Hi Guys It is actually quite difficult in practice to accurately measure the wheelbase and/or the polar length of an assembled Slotworx car - this was never a tech issue with Gen 1 - if the car was made to regulation the desired result was obtained automatically - however with Gen 2 being adjustable I have put together the following table to assist measuring these. Regards FoxBox
  12. Hi Guys, Here is the final program for this event. At this point it looks like the Retro will be 2 round-robin affairs of 8 racers with 4 min brackets. The team's races will be 30 min brackets with driver changes as described above - with absolutely no variations to the pattern. Any questions please post on this thread. Cheers FoxBox
  13. Hi Guys, The Retro event is a walk-up affair and as far as I can ascertain the current situation is: - So that's maybe 17 which would translate to 2 round-robin races. Cheers FoxBox
