Thanks to everyone who turned up for practise today.
And thanks to all in the club who have helped with track work and timing for practise etc.
Special big thanks to James who has put it hours making the jumps, prepping the surface by hand and applying the molasses.
Ok business of tomorrow.
We have decided to go for a couple of heats of 2wd stock with 11 in a heat keeping us at 13 races in a round rather than pushing out to 14 races in a round.
Maybe there will be some no shows which will help.
Both mod 2wd & mod 4wd has gone to 3 heats but should initially only have 7-8 people in each qualifier heat. These guys need more space so good if a little less of them in each qualifier race.
Please refer to the RC Tech thread re NSW club Series 2018 for event guidelines esp. the need for AARCMCC control motors in 2wd stock & 4wd stock.
Junior stock is 17.5 but does not have to be an AARCMCC motor (can be if you have one).
Food. We have catered for about 50 breakfast rolls.
And have 50 snags and 20 pies for lunch. When I ordered these a week or so ago entries were much lower.
We will do what we can re getting more on the day if it looks like some of you might go hungry.
We will have some tea and coffee. But not sure you will need it as the day will be warm. Bring a cup if you are a real fan of the hot drinks.
We have some foam cups if others want.
Will have cans of cold drink ($2) and bottles of water ($1)
There is a Colour Fest event on the main arena tomorrow. It should not affect us as it starts at 11am but there will be a fair few people around and music playing.
We will do our best to try to keep everyone informed via the PA system, but we may have competition.
Please try to keep aware of what races are on and when you might be up next. We have a lot to get through.
Please park on the asphalt and pit on the gravel on the drivers stand side of the track.
We would like to have some space for people to enter the gates to the track and to the BBQ area which will be near the shed.
You can park and pit on the grass at the ends and far side of the track.
Track will not be open for practise Sunday am.
We plan to start racing at 7.30am.
I will try to review the heats and group some faster guys together, but I will be honest up front.
I don’t know everybody and can’t seem to find the 2017 CS Drivers Results.
Plus, there have been some who have moved up to mod (or down to stock) and quite a few new names which I am unsure of where to place.
Finally try to have fun. We are adults racing model cars. Only the Junior stocks get a medallion tomorrow.
The rest in bragging rights so let’s have a good day of competition in the right spirit.
