IMPORTANT TYRE UPDATE!!!

Our tyres for the titles have arrived in AUSTRALIA!!!! But the bad news is that the 2WD Front wedges that where on order have NOT arrived due to apparently being DISCONTINUED by Proline.

Wide Wedges have added to our order buy the supplier with a limited number, with the per-orders getting filled first.

The draw back to this is that the wide wedges require a full front wheel to suit.

If anyone has issues finding rims to suit, please reach out to the club asap.

2018 State Title Update 4 – 2 weeks to go!

Believe it or not we are just two weeks out from our first ever Tasmanian State Titles sponsored this year by the generous support from our naming sponsor Fergies Betta.

Entries continue to roll in, but if you plan on racing we need your entry form in no later than 1 week from today, so get your forms in to is via the online form at https://www.emailmeform.com/builder/form/2h5j4KLEdDlbz7SWifaJP  .  Not sure if we have your entry, then check the bottom of the event page .

For those of you new to major race meets, we have a great article written by Scott Guyatt some years ago entitled Preparing for a Major Meeting and while it relates to an On Road race, many of the principals are the same preparing for an off road meet.

Whilst your behaviour is always expected to be of the highest standard, we do have a code of ethics that we expect people to abide by, more details can be found on the Code of Ethics page.

Marshalling is always a part of race meets, and it is all the more important at a state title.  We even have an article about Marshalling that you can read over here to refresh your memory.  Remember you MUST marshal the race after your own, and being a state title penalties will be applied to people who do not marshal, or find a suitable replacement marshal.

Being a state title many rules are more strictly adhered to such as placing your cars on the scruitineering table after your race, not taking them back to the pits, as well as things like charging in suitable fireproof containers for lipo battery charging.  If you are unsure about any of the rules or regulations, please seek out a committee member either tonight, at the titles meet, or via the facebook page or group.

However overall, we expect you to have fun racing in our chosen sports state championship !
