Track: For those who haven’t visited Launceston R/C before, the track surface is smooth concrete, with timber ramps, artificial turf, carpet and other artificial obstacles. The track surface is low grip. There will be a fresh track layout for this event to limit the advantage of local drivers.

Site Layout: Inside the Uniquely Pavillion will be the same as normal with race control, the canteen and drivers stand in the normal locations.  Near the entrance will be a display by the Tassie RC Crift Group.  Outside the main entrance wil be Bracknell Primary’s hot food stall, as well as the Tas Radio Rock Crawlong Group display on Sunday.  The food and Rock Crawling will be where parking normally is on a race night.  This will be a Drop Off Only Zone for the cup, with parking to the west of thepavillion as per the map below.  There will be NO PARKING on the southern side of the pavillion.
