   I’m really  looking forward to racing in Qld again. I always have a great time with plenty of laughs. Normally a couple of hang overs . Along with racing the fastest blokes in the country on a great track, it's heaps of fun . I’m lucky enough to be teaming up with Ben for the first time. Time to get stuck into some car prep , especially the 1:32 stuff. New for us down here so plenty of testing to sort something out . Polish up your drinking boots . Pagey is coming to party . 👍🏻✈️🎉🎉🎉🍺🍺🍺🍺 🙈🤓

Hi  everyone.. had a few queries re Pro and Am classes so to clear it up - 

Yes, Pro's and Am's can enter both classes and race for separate trophies and prizes.

On the Sunday morning there is essentially 4 sprint events: 

First up will be the the SC8000 with Pro's and am's racing together.. this is for the old Scaleauto chassis running 12/44 to the format we have had for many years. In this class lexan windows and lightweight interior is allowed with a start clearance of 1.8mm for the chassis and 1.4mm for the body.  Trophies and prizes will be awarded for best placed Pro and Am's


Next up will be the SC8003 for both Pro and am's.. this is for the newer style Scaleauto chassis running open gearing, solid widows and factory interior ( the one with the plastic driver - NOT the vac form version) Cars must pass the 1mm clearance tool at start of race. Again trophies and prizes will be awarded for best placed Pro's and Am's so if you've got both types of cars you can enter both events. 


Sunday afternoon will be the 2 man teams race - you can form a team with any driver - am's can race with pro's as there is no driver rating for this event.


Dont forget our first test and tune is coming up on Sunday 8th of July at Red Racer from 10am to 12 noon.

The big Scaleauto race is nearly here... Over 30 trophy's up for grabs and Werner from Ace Hobbies tells me there are some great Scaleauto prizes also.. As previously stated there are trophy's and prizes for both Am and Pro's in the sprints for both classes of 1/24th Scaleauto's - the SC 8000 and SC 8003.  The 1/24th Enduro's there is no driver grading but there are trophy's for both classes of chassis.. All the 1/24th Scale races are on the Sunday and 1/32 "plastics" on the Saturday afternoon. 

Looking forward to seeing you Pagey.. Looks like we've got teams coming up from both the Southern states so should be a good weekend.

See attached sample trophy:

Awesome time in Queensland again. Not great personal results for myself but had a blast of a time . It’s always fantastic to hang out with like minded blokes who enjoy our hobby. Awesome racing over the classes as was expected and delivered. Queensland have a very high standard of drivers and on their own turf are very , very hard to match. Thanks to my team mate Ben . Had an awesome time mate . We got close with a couple of 4ths. I had a great time tuning cars and relearning the track again with you . Thanks very much to Werner, Ace hobbies along with Scaleauto for organising a great event along with fantastic prizes.  Also to Tony at Red  Racer for a top quality venue. To Kim and Simon for their efforts before and during the event . Huge thank you to Noel and Donna for opening up your farm retreat home to myself and family

and driving us around.

Here are some photos of the event . Cheers Pagey
