lrc logo working files LAUNNIE CUP

August (7th)-8th-9th 2015

This is the clubs big annual event, hosting racers from all over the state, and sometimes interstate drivers, in a great big tin shed, where we will do battle for bragging rights!!

It is also the first of three, of an inter-club points series, where  Launceston R/C, The North West Remote Control Car Club, and Goodwood Offroad Model Car Club do battle against one another for club supremacy, with each club holding an event where the clubs drivers individual points, add to their clubs over all points.

For a non club member, have no fear, as these events are open to all drivers!! We clubs just like to make a points series out of anything!!!! So if you are a racer from way back, just starting out, even a visiting racer, we’d be more than stoked to see you there!

We are also on the hunt for sponsors for classes as well as a title sponsor for the event, so any leads, information, will be appreciated.

Below is most of the basic information, as time goes by, we’ll be keeping everyone up to date with current information.  Online entry will be set up soon, the hunt for food and coffee vans is on, and any other information that pops up, we’ll be posting it up!

Late Friday afternoon(07/08/2015), the club will open the doors, set up the timing, and will have the track opened for uncontrolled practice, in order for those who have travelled(and locals), to get some time on the carpet.

Saturday and Sunday mornings, the track will also be open for practice for the classes that day, to do final adjustments before the commencement of racing. The track will be closed 45-30min before the start of racing for drivers brief, and any track maintenance that is required.

Any other clubs that wish to display, please get in contact with us, as we get many spectators, and we are in a paddock, so outside room isn’t an issue, but inside is pretty packed out already sorry
