This time of year is perfect in Tasmania for outdoor racing…and it’s Championship time.
Over the next two months, the Tasmanian Championships for 8th Off-road and 10th EP On-Road will take place.
8th Nitro buggy, Nitro truggy and EP Buggy classes will race at the 2012 Tasmanian 8th Offroad Championships at Latrobe on Feb 10-12. It’s a brilliant race track and should be an excellent race meeting. If you have a suitable car get there for an enjoyable Championship weekend…at a time when the race track is at its best. More info at the NWRCCC site here, and to enter online go here.
And four weeks later, 10-12 March, the EP Touring and Mini guys will go at it for the 2012 Tasmanian Championship at STMCC’s Goodwood (Hobart) track. The team from STMCC are hard at work putting down a brand new track layout that looks fantastic. Again, if you have a mini or a touring car, get there for this one. The Friday is optional open practice – so you don’t necessarily have to be there that day. Go here for more info and entry forms.
Big races like State Championships are not just for the elite. They’re races for everybody, celebrations of the sport, and a chance to race on tracks that are usually at their very best. That’s definitely the case for these two events.
Let us encourage you to give it a shot, and know that at both events there will be plenty of Launnie R/C guys there – so you’ll be among familiar faces.
