We mightn’t be racing in real life, but we are getting some virtual racing in on VRC Pro, the free to use Virtual RC simulator. You can of course purchase content as well, but club members have been holding Short Course Truck races on a number of tracks. The first 2 round, Covid 19 cup resulted in interstate entrant Jarrod Ment followed by Isaav Davis and Chris Cameilleri.
Event results can be found on VRC Pro here http://www.vrcworld.com/events/event.aspx?id=24130#detail
We encourage you to come and have ago, the events run over a number of days and are in essence time trials against the clock to see who can post the best time.
It is with a great sadness that the committee of Launceston R/C announce that not only is racing suspended for the next 6 months, but the cancellation of our State titles that were slated to take place in July.
In light of the announcement of limitation of places of assembly, such as indoor sporting clubs, we have no choice but to suspend racing until the situation changes.
Rest assured that as soon as we are able racing will recommence, and I am sure many members will be online in our facebook group discussing what they are up to at home in this time, sharing new builds, modifications or other RC shenanigans to hold out until the next race. Perhaps even head to another club for a race if they are still holding events at STMCC or NWRCCC.
Hello every body due to the On road State Titles in Hobart the this Friday Club meeting will be cancelled.
Sorry for any inconvenience the next race meeting will be on Friday 27th March
And if you are heading to Hobart best of luck
For those coming to help at the Motorama Display at Longford over the weekend, we will be at the site from 9am on Saturday and Sunday. Our location is inside the corner of Archer and Latour Street. Parking in the area will be busy so be patient, and it appears Archer Street between Latour and Wellington Street (Longford main road) will be closed during the day.
On Saturday the event runs from 9am to 6pm, on Sunday from 9am to 4pm. We don’t expect to be operating our display until 6pm on the Saturday, crowd interest pending.
If you want to go into the paid areas of the show, it is $10 for adults, kids under 16 free.
Major news hitting the press today is the exciting addition of not only a new Sponsor for the 2020 Championships, but a new Naming Rights Sponsor.
Launceston R/C is excited to announce that Paneltec is the naming rights sponsor for the 2020 Paneltec RCRA Tasmanian EP Off-Road Championship.
A huge thanks go to Clint Brown who secured the Paneltec sponsorship, which is a massive boost to the event’s funding.
