Hi All

Last year's classes, scheduling, regulations and format is maintained.

Sunday

In essence the 2020 regulations as posted on ACE Hobbies Web Site for these cars will be in force: -

BUT PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING FOR THIS EVENT


GT3

1) May use a 12T or 13T pinion at your discretion.

2) Cars must have a min of 0.5mm clearance at all times (other than at Tech where it is 1.0mm as per regs).

(NOTE that any car deemed to be damaging the track must be removed whatever).

FLM
1) Lights are not required for FLM as there is no night racing at this event - this means also that the light buckets do not require installation and the light lens may be painted in any fashion (including the body colour).

2) Cars must have a min of 0.5mm clearance at all times( other than at Tech where it is 1.0mm as per regs).

(NOTE that any car deemed to be damaging the track must be removed whatever).

Entry Fees (same as last year) are as follows: -  


Saturday’s Races are $20 per driver for each race. Monies to be paid at counter when nominating your entry (GT3)/team (FLM).
Sunday’s race (the BIG one) is $50 per driver. Monies to be paid to James when nominating your team.
Friday open practice will be $10 per driver all day.

 
A finalised timetable of events will be available in due course (as numbers firm up) but please note the following: -


-  scrutineering and Qualifying for the GT3 Sprint will be held on Friday and cars impounded overnight for an early start Saturday.


-  a 6 hour Enduro for the Porsche Cup cars means that Sunday will potentially be a late finish, in order that the finish is TOO late there is a limit of 10 Teams for this event (there were 9 last year).

 

- previous entries will have priority BUT this expires after December 30, 2019 after which date it will be first in best dressed.


With a limit of 10 Teams I calculate that the day will be done and dusted (including presentations) at approx. 6:00. This is an estimate based on 10 Teams – last year’s actual racing with 9 teams finished at 4:34 followed by presentations.


Remember to book for a later flight out of Sydney or leave Monday.


So get building gents and don't forget to nominate your team/s (including the the Team Members) and event/s.


Looking forward to racing and debriefing at the Blue Gum with you all once again.

 

Cheers.

OK Gents   Racers came from the four corners of the globe to contest what will in all likelihood be the final Lexan Shootout at this fabulous track and venue.   GT3  

Breaking News   Werner of ACE Hobbies has contacted me and offered to provide motors for the Plafit FLM Team Race for this event which I think is great.   So a big Thank-you is due

A few more pics of the presentations etc. Thanks to Stephen Clarke (SlotStream) for these.
