2016 Launceston Toyota R/C Cup Update – Final

I promise, this is the last one!!!!

So we have in excess of 80 entries and the weekend is looking like being a great one! Check the main page for who else is entered in your class.

A last minute addition to proceedings will be a 2nd hand sale table just near race control. This will be for race relevant equipment, cars, batteries, radios etc.  Launceston R/C will not be taking responsibility for these items, so leave them there at your own risk, or leave photos and details for people to contact you.

We have had confirmation that Coffee Buzz will be at the cup and is raring to get you your caffeine fix.  However apart from the canteen there will be no food available.

The novice class on Saturday is looking a little light on at this stage, so along side the novice class we will be running a demonstration class of rear motor mount trucks with a maximum of 13.5 turn motors and rtr tyres such as sc10 and blitz trepedors..  There will be no trophies as it is a demonstration class, so drag out your old Blitz, SC10 or T4 and get some extra laps in. Entry will be $10 and to enter either comment on here, facebook or do an entry form with your entry in the notes section.

Any questions, let us know, otherwise see you at practice on Friday night!

Media Release – The 6th Annual Launceston Toyota R/C Cup

Following on from a huge 2015 event, Launceston R/C is proud to announce the 2016 Launceston Toyota R/C Cup in conjunction with Launceston Toyota. 2016 once again continues to see interstate interest with entries from as far afield as Queensland and Victoria flying in to compete at this year’s event. With 81 entries to date and climbing it is looking to be a competitive field once again in 2016.

Racing will take place across the entire weekend with practice starting on Friday at 12:00 noon, and racing starting at 9:00am on Saturday and Sunday with doors opening at 7:30am. Different classes will be racing each day with qualifying occurring in the morning, and finals in the afternoon.  Coffee Buzz will be site to cater to those needing a caffeine hit, and racing will go on regardless of the weather because of our indoor track.

Entry for spectators during the event is free, and we invite everybody to come out and have a look at the event at the Uniquely Tasmanian Pavilion at Quercus Park, Carrick.  Take in the atmosphere and enjoy the smallest and most affordable form of motorsport in the country.

2016 has seen a new layout installed which sees high speed sections join tight technical parts of the track to create an environment that is unforgiving to drivers who make mistakes.   We continue to make improvements with more track lighting installed, and new jump frames installed in the lead p to this event.

We would also like to thank our Event Sponsors, Launceston Toyota, Hearns Hobbies, Trophy Traders and Hot Toddys Heater Installs and Rebecca Green & Associates.  Without their help and support this event would be very difficult to continue to hold.

For further information about the event visit our website at  https://launcestonrc.com/2016-launceston-rc-cup/ and for updates see our facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/launcestonrc

If you would like to discuss this more details of the event, you can contact me by email at greeny@richardgreenphotography.com.au or by phone on 0419 872 883.  Attached is a copy of the event poster. Some file images from previous events will be available if needed from Richard Green Photography.

2016 Launceston Toyota R/C Cup – Update 5

Welcome one and all to another news update from the organisers that bring you the Launceston Toyota R/C Cup.

Firstly, I am going to put the updated cup poster here sowing all of our sponsers, where possible please support them.

launceston cup 2016 poster3

Next some furhter housekeeping.  A reminder to all local drivers, you will need to provide your own pit table for the event.  If you have our own at the track, that is fine.  However the limited extra tables that we have will be allocated to the interstate drivers flying in for the event.

In other news, there will be some Hearn’s Hobbies products available at the track this year, if you are interested in purchasing anything please see Brady Anthes at the Rangatue table.

Entries are currently hovering just over 50, but I know a lot of people who have not entered yet, Classes will start closing for new entries in the coming days, so you need to get them in ASAP!  For those that don;t know the link, here it is once again http://www.emailmeform.com/builder/form/P5s5FEbOYH9k9bc3R74B5.

If you are unsure if I have processed your entry, check the bottom of the event page at 2016 Launceston Toyota R/C Cup

In terms of food, the canteen will be running, and Coffee Buzz will be there for hot drinks, but at this stage there is no food vendors, so make sure yu have something with you.  We will take a short break for lunch during the day.
