As you are aware a vote was taken over the last couple of race meets, to decide if we would continue to run tourers at Rutherglen in 2013 or run more off road classes. The result of the vote was a close margin, but in the end the vote went the way of no longer running touring cars after 2012. It will be sad to no longer see the flat track speedsters at Rutherglen, but it allows us to run Short Course C, and/or split 10th scale buggies when we need to. With the growing numbers in both these classes, as seen in the last couple of meets, the time restraints for the meets means either limiting entries, or shortening race times. Now with an open spot, this will elevate some of this issue, but by no means all of it, as numbers are still growing, we’ll have to adapt as we go to fit everyone into their preferred classes.
Practice at Launceston R/C
We are in the process of negotiations with Rutherglen, to have the track opened up for practice during the Bistros opening hours, which will hopefully relieve a bit of the want for track time during meets. But please note, the TRACK IS CLOSED apart from designated race meets until further notice.Practice will be a sign in event with payment to Rutherglen BEFORE entry to the track. Full information, rules and regulations on this will be released as soon as talks with Rutherglen are concluded.
