Hi All,

 

Well our slot racing schedule and life generally has been FUBAR for the past couple of years. However with vaccination rates on the up and various state governments now having tentative roadmaps to open up we can maybe dream of catching up and racing again.

 

With a little optimism I therefore announce that the previously scheduled  'Lexan Shootout @ Seagulls' will now be rebranded and scheduled for the weekend prior to Australia Day with the same format as initially announced.

 

2022 AUSTRALIA DAY CLASSIC @ SEAGULLS
 
What is Racing
individual Sprint
- Aussie Retro CanAm
Two Enduros of minimum 3.5 hours (or longer dependant on entry numbers)
- Slotworx Porsche Cup
- Lexan GT3 cars  – motor and gearing to be confirmed closer to the date.

Who is Racing
No limit on entries for Aussie Retro CanAm.
A maximum of 10 Teams of 3 drivers in each Enduro class.
Nominate your teams ASAP to avoid disappointment.

Schedule (to be finessed as necessary)

Friday 21st January

10:00 to 18:00 Track open for all day practice @ $20 per driver
18:00 to 19:30 Dinner break
19:30 to 22:00 Aussie Retro CanAm Sprint Race @ $10 per entry
Teched to NSW Aussie Retro Rules

This rule set will be updated to allow for the issues raised in the previous race announcement regarding ball races, body dimensions' use of lead and tape for tuning and lead-wire management: - 
 
The idea of this race is to introduce this class to those who may not have had the pleasure; racers that have excess cars available are encouraged to loan out a car or two if possible to increase participation.

Kim will in all likelihood have a limited supply of these cars built and prepared to RTR standards by Wayne Bramble for sale prior to the race or you could also build your own.

This race is all about fun and so tech will be 'relaxed' and it is BYO Cheetah IV motor.

Saturday 22nd January
Slotworx Porsche Cup Enduro – Max 10 teams - $150 per team.
Teched to prevailing national rule set (please note that any mix of Gen I and Gen II components will be allowed as will Plafit front axle bearing holders on Gen II Tee plate)
Handout SRP 25L geared 13/44

10:00 to 12:00 Track open for motor hand-out and practice.
12:00 to 12:30 Tech
12:30 to 12:40 Concours
12:40 to 13:00 Qualifying and Lane draw
13:00 to Finish of Racing (Finish time depends on Team numbers but by 19:00 at latest for dinner)

Sunday 23rd January
GT3 Enduro – Max 10 teams - $150 per team.
Teched to prevailing national rule set

10:00 to 12:00 Track open for motor hand-out and practice.
12:00 to 12:30 Tech

13:00 to Finish of Racing (Finish time depends on Team numbers but by 19:00 at latest for dinner combined with presentations)

OK that is the guts of it – slight changes may be made depending on interest etc but hopefully it will be all systems go for this.
 
Cheers
