Racing next Thursday April 22nd

We’re racing again next Thursday, April 22nd.

With news of a couple of new Short Course truck drivers nearly ready to join the action, we could be looking down the barrel of splitting to two heats of SC. If we do, we’ll run the heats separately, with the fastest going into the A final, next group into the B final.  SC racing is definitely spectacular and we’re loving it at Launceston R/C.

Other classes this week?  I reckon we’ll see a field of tourers and minis, a group of 8th scale big bangers, and our usual 10th offroad class.

Next week we’re hoping to announce details of a club general meeting. It’s time for us to start getting the club organised, planning for track improvements, thinking more about promotion and so on.  Details soon.

Hope to see you at Rutherglen next Thursday night.

    Dividing the short course trucks would be a good idea Scott.Good to see more trucks being bought.

    The 1/8 nitro revo has been converted to electric will be there thursday night for a test run.Looking forward for more mayhem and carnage

  10. Mayhem and carnage are things I usually try and avoid on the racetrack!!

    Looks like I’m out tonight, I’ve been crook, so I won’t be back till the next meet 😦

    Sorry to hear that Richard, get well soon and we’ll see you next time.

    Just a few hours to go folks, and I’m excited. Faster steering servo installed in the BLitz for this week….look out rocket I’m gunning for two in a row!

    We could top 10 SC trucks this week – if my maths is right, there are now 15 or 16 SC racers out there, just depends on how many might show up tonight!

    • acko82 says:
