Goodwood Cup.

Even tho we are all distracted with the Launceston Cup as it grows near, (2 days away!!)

I’d like to quickly take the time to inform you that our sister club in Hobart, the Goodwood Off-Road Model Car Club, have announced..

THE GOODWOOD CUP!!!

Previously known as the Goodwood Festival of Speed.  The Cup will be held on the 2nd and 3rd of November 2013.

Saturday morning will be timed practice from 9am to 1pm, with 3 qualifiers to start from 2pm.  Sunday will start at 10am with 1 qualifier followed by 3 finals, best two to count.

Club BBQ will be run from 11am-2pm both days, with sausages and burgers available.  Soft drinks and water will also be available.

With the Launceston Cup already having been run we anticipate a great turnout and some close racing on our purpose built 1/10th clay track.  The track will be prepped to ensure an awesome racing surface.
