A couple of bits of news this week for Launceston R/C regulars…
Championship Season – don’t forget its Tasmanian Championship time for both 8th Offroa and 10th onroad over the next month. See the post below for more information and links. You’ll need to pre-enter both these events so get cracking. Don’t forget that as both are championship events, they’ll be a little tighter on rules than we are at our regular club events – so check that your car and gear (motor, esc, battery, body etc) all fit within the rules for the class you’re planning on racing).
New Tracks for Hobart: Both the EP On-Road and EP Off-Road clubs in Hobart have put down ripper new track layouts over the past couple of weeks in preparation for the new season. The Off-road guys start their new season next Sunday (22nd Jan) and the on-road guys the week after (29th). They’ll then alternate week-about. Both tracks are in the model park at Goodwood – just down the hill from the horse racing track towards the Goodwood bridge. Definitely worth a trip.
Big Weekend for Launnie boys heading to Melbourne: Next weekend (28/29 Jan( Paddy Hume, Sam Wells and Alex John (I think that’s all?) continue their mainland race assault at the annual Keillor Stock Shootout – with classes for 2wd, 4wd, Stadium Trucks and Short Course Trucks at the Keilor club’s brand new circuit. Good luck guys!
LRC Committee meeting: It’s short notice but we’re needing to have a committee meeting to get plans for 2012 underway. Meeting for committee members is next Tuesday 24th Jan, 7pm at 10 Cameron St – the offices of Ritchie & Parker, Alfred Green & Co. Committee members please make it if you can.
