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!

Transponders: This race meeting will be scored using personal transponders. It is your responsibility to supply your own personal transponder (AMB personal transponder and  MyLaps RC4 are suitable). We have a very limited number of transponders available for rent on a first-come, first-served basis at $10 for the day (conditions apply). Launceston RC does have a limited number of new transponders for sale at $100.

Rules: Rules for each class are outlined below. Race format and general event guidelines are as per Launceston R/C race rules. We anticipate this is a weekend that will be heavy on fun, and light on scrutineering and heavy-handed rule enforcement. Your cooperation will help make sure this is the case.

Track: For those who haven’t visited Launceston R/C before, the track surface has been evolving over the years to where the majority of the surface is carpet or artificial turf with man made jumps, humps and other artificial obstacles.

*** Time permitting, 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.  It is anticipated that we will have a number of other groups and clubs displaying on the Sunday. This will be a Drop Off Only Zone for both days of the cup, with parking to the west of the pavillion as per the map below.  There will be NO PARKING on the southern side of the pavillion.
