Racing continues to build in intensity and enjoyment at Launceston R/C’s Rutherglen Raceway this Thursday night 13th May.
There’s plenty of interest as usual in our ever improving field of Short Course trucks, with at least one new face this week as Matt Hodgetts makes the move into SC behind the wheel of a Team Associated SC10, while front-runner Rocket updates his Traxxas Slash to a HPI Blitz in search of even more speed. We hear there are another one or two SC pilots in the wings and look forward to this class continuing to grow.
Sam Wells is spearheading growing interest in the Touring Car class, with the flat-track guys gradually getting to grips with the setup and driving style needed to make these super-fast cars work.
The “Buggy” battle between Rocket’s Lazer and el-Presidente Paddy Hume’s AE B44 should be something to see too. Paddy will be determined to turn the tables on Rocket who was very fast last time out.
Our Novice class continues to grow in popularity, and I’m sure that we’re going to see new faces this week, and also a new vehicle for Faye Hodgetts. Faye’s micro sized RC18t might be retired in favour of something, shall we say, a lot bigger!
All in all, we’re looking forward to a super race meeting. Doors will open this week at 5pm, but with the first our spent re-setting the track layout, expect to be able to get on-track for practice from the usual time of 6pm, with racing starting from 7.
If you’re intending to be there, but know you’ll be arriving after 7, drop me an e-mail, leave a comment here or sms 0407783243 with your class and frequency details.
