I am happy to run a round if you want
Munter said we could either swap his round to my track or still run it on his or even have 2 rounds here in Napier NZ while the cars are here
that would make 3 rounds in NZ
we can run them very close to each other if need be

Hi Alexis, Good to see you here on HRW! I'll put you down for 2 entries.

Unfortunately, the #33 is already taken. To see the numbers that are already taken, go to the first post on this thread, scroll down about 2/3rds of the way and you'll find the topic "pre-registration". All of the builders, cars and numbers taken are listed there. Choose two numbers that are not already taken and you'll be all set.

We may be full up on tracks right now: let me get back to you in about a week on that topic. Thanks a lot for the offer.

Welcome aboard!

Hi Allan
Seems like I missed the rush.
If room - put me down for a P68 #133 and a Porsche 917 TBD.
Thanks

Ron, good to have you entered in this series. #13 is always available...........for some reason............!

I actually ran a #13 in the last CanAm series and it did pretty well; so perhaps the old nemesis #13 doesn't apply to 1/32 scale slot car racing:

Mike (orakei racer), good to have you back in the field. If I recall correctly, there is a black P68 sitting on your bench somewhere that was a good racer in the Ford-Ferrari Wars proxy, so we'll be looking for good things again from the #133! :handgestures-thumbup:

Hi All,

I'm going to close the pre-registration on Saturday, March 25th.

It will have been open for a week at that time and I think that's enough time for everyone to see the proxy notice and to sign-up if they're interested. So, if you are interested, be sure and sign-up today or tomorrow. Interest has been high and we currently have over 50 cars registered.

If you are interested and you decide to sign-up after Saturday, then you'll be put on a reserve list and if any of the pre-registered cars drop out, then you'll be moved from the reserve list to the pre-registered list. I will keep all lists updated so that you know where you are, in terms of registration.

I'm sorry for having to use a pre-registration cut-off date, but 50 plus cars will be a lot to handle at each of the hosting tracks and that is the reason that we need a cut-off for this series.

I'm starting to think that just maybe, Porsche will edge Ford on this series.......................... ;)

Allan, that's great news, I'm looking forward to this one...

Funny thing about that #13, but I've always had decent results with it...

And sweet looking Porsche you have there...

I'll be entering a Ford P68...

All the best...

Thought I'd give you all a tally on the cars that are both pre-registered and designated. Here they are:

Fords

GT-40 - 10
Mirage - 1
P68 - 2
Cobra - 1
J-car - 1

Porsches

917 - 10
908 - 4
907 - 1
906 - 3
904 - 1
718 - 0

So, as expected, it looks like the big show is going to be between the GT-40's and the 917's.

Still 17 cars in the TBD stage, so the numbers could change some as they designate their cars.

While I'm happy for the uniqueness of cars, yes the 917 v GT 40 will be great.

I wonder if the Ford Mk4 can truly be called a "GT40"? It was based on a completely new chassis design and carried a different serial numbering.

Not a big deal, but it would be nice to see that broken out, like it would be to see the different 917 variants individually identified too.

Or is this just my late-night OCD kicking in? :D

(Actually, I have CDO - it is like OCD, except the letters are in the right order......)

I'll go now...
