Hi Chris,

No, crowns and spurs can be lower; as long as they don't represent a physical threat to any of the tracks that we run on. The 1.2mm is the minimum clearance on the underside of the chassis or on any weight that is attached to the bottom of the chassis.

I should add that we would prefer all weight to be above the bottom of the chassis (inside the car), since external weight, in some cases, tends to come off during a long proxy series and can cause damage to both the host tracks and the other cars.

Those of you who still need to choose your numbers, or designate your car(s)/number(s), this might be a good time to do that. Registration fees will be due in August and that will be coming up sooner than you think............ :lol:

Aloha - Ford TBD / #4 - Porsche TBD / #5
BrumosRSR - Porsche TBD / #33 - Porsche TBD / #111
Redlynr - Ford TBD / #12 - Porsche TBD / #16

BrumosRSR - Porsche 917/ #33 - Porsche 907 or 910 / #111

Leaning towards the 907......sure hope Redlynr is wrong in his testing.

Allan,

I'm afraid I will need to withdraw my entries from this year's series. My work travel schedule and the demands of the rest of my life will not give me time to build cars for this year.

My track is still available for running a round though.

I'm not too happy to have to do this, but things are only going to get worse as far as work goes closer to the entry deadline.

Good luck to all entrants, this will be a great sires if the last one is anything to go by.

Got it, Dale, thanks!

Austin, that's about right for testing time; 2 1/2 months from now you'll probably be on the pole!

Registration received from Monte - thanks!
