Club Racing & Working Bee THIS WEEK!!

Yes, charge your batteries, put on some fresh tyres and lets race. Yes, I know in my last post I put details of this weeks racing, but it doesn’t hurt to remind you all.

So, doors open at 6, racing starts at 7. Bring a car, bring 2, bring a mate to drive a 3rd car, but what matters is that you get to the track and RACE!!!!

After racing finishes for the evening there will be some packing up of the track and surrounding equipment, however the main packing up will be on Saturday from 10am. The more hands we have on deck, the faster we will get it done. There is far less work to do this year to pack up because our storage container is now located beside the shed. We are still waiting to hear where we have to put our drivers stand however. So it may only take us a couple of hours to pack if we have enough people to help out.

Club Racing 31 March 2023

Yes it’s racing, but not this week. We have had a slight change of racing date for a couple of reasons.

  1. If we had raced this Friday the 24th, it would have clashed with the Electric On Road State Titles being held in Hobart by the Southern Tasmania Model Car Club (STMCC) which a number of members are attending. If anybody wanbts to go along and race, or have a look, details are here
  2. We have to be out for Agfest in April, so this makes it 1 less week that we have off from racing because of Agfest.

So as I said, racing starts at 7pm on Friday the 31st of March (NEXT FRIDAY, not this Friday). Doors open at 6 with all of the usual classes happening.

There will be a working bee for packing down the track, but if you have time to spare after racing to help start things packing up, that help would be appreciated.

So be ready to race, but not quite yet 😉

Racing Results: 10/03/2023

Yes racing was back last Friday, but i’ve only just had a chance to post results as I was away for the long weekend. So let’s fire up these results, remember that despite the strange things the sheets on race night print, of the 3 finals, we add up the results of the 3 races, and drop your WORST result, currently the printouts are dropping the BEST result, which is ….. strange….

Congratulations to all drivers, there was some stupendous racing right through the grid all night, and some very close results despite lower numbers for the night overall.

Club Racing 10 March 2023

You’ve been waiting for it, asking for it, and now we are ready to give it to you!! That’s right, racing resumes this Friday now that Party in the Paddock has finally moved out of the shed. Yes, you heard that right, this Friday the 10th of March doors open at 6pm, and racing starting at 7pm after a driver briefing.

Firstly there will be some housekeeping before racing can start, there is a bit of mess, dirt and dust, so if you get to the track early, and have a shop vac and an extension cord, the first round will be the group vacuum up junk from the track before the more speedy vehicles can hit the track. So bring a vac, bring your extension cord and help tidy things up before we get the night started in earnest.

All of our usual classes will be on offer including 2wd Buggy Stock, 4wd Buggy Stock, Outlaw and Novice. The weather is cooler so i’d suggest a jacket, not shorts, as well as your cars, transponders and fully charged batteries.

So lets hit the track and GET RACING!

Track Working Bee – 4 March 2023

After a somewhat prolonged moving out time frame for Party in the Paddock, we can finally get back in to racing, however first we need to reinstate the parts of the track that were packed up for PITP.

So tomorrow there will be a working bee from 3pm tomorrow afternoon (Saturday the 4th of March) to put things back the way we need in order to start racing ASAP. So all hands on deck and it won’t take very long at all, no more than a couple of hours at absolute most. So pitch in, help out and we will see you tomorrow afternoon.

Club Racing – Friday 27th Jan 2023

Yes it’s time to hit the track once again, and once again Richard is messing around with different ways to enter for racing. This time I am trying out RC Race Pal that STMCC have been using. It has some integrations with liverc, so if you can enter with this to see how it goes i’d appreciate it. Unfortunately there is no Outlaw or Novice classes in there yet, so please enter into 1:10 stadium truck if you fall into one of those classes for now. To check it out visit×436893474670247940

As usual, doors open at 6 with acing to beginning at 7pm. Race fees will be $20 per non member, and $15 for club members. Additional classes are $5 as usual.

We do need to do some packing for Party in the Padock at the end of the race meet, so please hang around afterwards to help 1/2 pack down the shed.

2023 Club Memberships – Due Now!

Yes our membership fees for 2023 are now due. Membership fees are $50 per person, and $80 for a family. This goes towards paying our insurance, affiliation and more. The other benefit is of course your race night fees.

The first class for a member racing is of course $15, non club member fees of $20 have always been in place, but we have been a little slack in applying them the last few years. However that with recommence this year, even if it is an existing member who has yet to pay their membership. Of course a 2nd class for the evening is $5 and Transponder hire is still $5.

As some of you know, the Party in the Paddock is at Quercus Park at the end of January, as we will have to partially pack down the track for the organisers to use for this event, so if you have time to stay back and help move loose items into the container after racing tonight (the container is now beside the shed) that will be a big help, and an even bigger help will be to help 1/2 pack the shed after the next race meet on the 27th.

See you at racing tonight!

Reunion Race Meet Sunday 18th December 2022

Yes that’s right, it’s our reunion Race meet doubling up as our End of Year / Christmas function to close out 2022 Doors will open at 10 am with Racing to begin at 11am.

Food wise Ian will have some saveloys on as well as the usual canteen, however the BBQ will also be there if you want to bring some of your own sausages, hamburgers etc to cook up. We are trying to get as many past, present, and maybe even future, racers to attend, so make sure you share this far and wide, and tag people who should get off their buts and come along!! If you are coming, let us know in the event on Facebook here

Our usual classes will be racing, we will also allow a session over lunchtime for any visitors or novices to have some track time for a bit of fun, or a first time crack at the track to see if they like it. If anybody has a spare or loaner car to bring for people to try out, even better. We will also be running a Vintage Class as well as a “Everything Else” class, so why not bring a few more cars (or drivers) than usual.

So come along, let’s round out the year with a rousing success of an event, and I will see you there.

PS, images are from our 2013 end of year meet, can you see some familiar faces in there??
