The cold weather is upon us, and that means one thing: the winter racing season is here. This Thursday, June 9th is the first of a six-race winter series, with each driver’s best five results to count. Points are accrued by club members, but non-members are (as always), very welcome to join us.
Race classes this week will be the usual mix of Short Course Trucks, Tenth Buggy, Tourers, 8th Big Bangers and Novice.
Some extra news for this week:
We’ll be doing a second order of Transponders to arrive before the Launceston Cup. If you missed out on the first order, or want to grab an additional unit, please see Greenie or Scott. Ideally we’ll need money from you as well. We’ll be placing this order within the next week to ensure that the transponders arrive in time for the Launnie Cup. Again we expect cost to be about $100.
New Season….New Track Layout?
That’s the rumour….changes to the track layout for the new race season. We’ll find out for sure when we throw the doors open at 6pm on Thursday night.
Tiger Models Launceston Cup
The Tiger Models Launceston Cup is now just three weeks away. Don’t forget to hit the event details page and find your way to the online entry form and pre-enter for the event. Check too that your car meets the rules for the event (there are motor restrictions for 2wd Stock and Tourers, plus the usual chassis/motor/tyre rules for the Short Course Truck class). We’re looking forward to this being a good event, and even if you’re totally new to the sport, this will be a fun day out.
Will be there with the brand new Xray T3R tourer new motor as well unfortunately still have the old body on it….can only afford so much..lol
Will be there with the blitz and the tourer see everyone there
Im there in the Slash, might be racing in tourers class too plus got the night off from work!
that would be good james another tourer
new layout great cant wait
will bring the sweeper
No need to bring sweeper Ian. We have bought a 240v vac/blower. Your sweeper is good and all, but seems to make a fine dust everywhere, and that makes it slippery.
Its Peter’s old Hyper 10 tourer but we need to get it going first! L8r
Also i need to hire a timing transponder if there is any avaliable? Thanks JA
It’s no longer a rumor! Brand new layout down. Looking forward to the new season.
Any new jumps paddy? 🙂
………… not yet………
There are in fact 4 different jump sections as opposed to 3 in the last layout… 😀
But stay tuned, a complete offroad section rebuild is in the pipeline for later this year…
It’s school holidays, so I’ll be bringing the junior guyatts out for their occasional race. that’s two for Novice, and a chance for both to practice for the Junior class at the Launceston Cup. Trucks are ready, batteries charged, kids excited.
Nice work mate! Just bring a heap of clothes! Going to be chilly!
Looking forward to another fun night of racing in short course and tenth buggy and have got the extra jumper ready to go 🙂

The track will be closed until 6pm for finishing touches on the new layout.
