1) car must be approximately 1/43rd
2) max. width 50.8mm
3) no fluid may leak out, no grease, oil or braid juice may pollute the track, no tire glue or similar
4) teams may ask for a special voltage where the car should be run.
the standard racing voltage depends on the motor. I will run all cars @ 12V, SCX and Carrera motors @15V, G9330 & Fyrebox@9V, Kyosho@16V, KyoshoX@13V.
5) car must have a body that looks like a car, race look prefered, but not necessary

9) cars must run 20 qualitfication laps on lane 1 prior to the race. Cars must get a fastest lap in this heat under 13 seconds to qualify for the race. Please don´t worry about this rules, stock SCX or Kyosho cars can do it easily. Only the fastest 20 cars from the qualifying will run the race. qualifying times will be posted with the race times.

concours de elegance: the best looking car will be voted by the host and get a special price.

wide open rules again, ladies and gentleman, so build your fastest, smoothest 1/43rd car for this race. just tune your stock SCX car a little and maybe blow the doors off all others, built something that was not seen before, it´s up to you.
Who will have the fastest car?

list of prizes by now:

....

have fun, Peter

The BARC entries are already there, but I may send a couple of more to swap out. The plan is to have Peter send all my entries to Lloyd for the Gaydon show.

Looking forward to this one as always.
Cheers

The BARC Team arrived some time ago already, the first on the track for the race!
Nice lineup, forward to see how they will run!

The PRT decided on the entries for this race, as it became clear that no new car will be ready for the race. The 962 is quite an old car, which already ran in some races. But it is still very, very fast. Will have to check gear clearance, it seems to have a little too much side-to-side-play in the rear axles.
The Mini JCW should have run last year, but wasn´t finished in time. So it will run this year. Looking forward to see the lights around the track.
And last but not least the remotored Exige which already ran in a ProNoMag. New tires and new motor, a mild one this time. Maybe will change to clear glass windows before the race if i can finish it.

So, whose car will be next on the track?

Looking forward to this race. This year I sent three different setups in an effort to solve the DESMO.

Now the fun of watching the other cars starting to arrive for this 1/43 premier event.

Thanks Peter

We will be happy with whatever anyone is kind enough to send us Peter. I like the truck idea, and maybe some of the Nastrucks to put with them would make a fine display!

Now I am working hard on my Pronomag cars.

Regards, Lloyd.
