Media Release – The 6th Annual Launceston Toyota R/C Cup

Following on from a huge 2015 event, Launceston R/C is proud to announce the 2016 Launceston Toyota R/C Cup in conjunction with Launceston Toyota. 2016 once again continues to see interstate interest with entries from as far afield as Queensland and Victoria flying in to compete at this year’s event. With 81 entries to date and climbing it is looking to be a competitive field once again in 2016.

Racing will take place across the entire weekend with practice starting on Friday at 12:00 noon, and racing starting at 9:00am on Saturday and Sunday with doors opening at 7:30am. Different classes will be racing each day with qualifying occurring in the morning, and finals in the afternoon.  Coffee Buzz will be site to cater to those needing a caffeine hit, and racing will go on regardless of the weather because of our indoor track.

Entry for spectators during the event is free, and we invite everybody to come out and have a look at the event at the Uniquely Tasmanian Pavilion at Quercus Park, Carrick.  Take in the atmosphere and enjoy the smallest and most affordable form of motorsport in the country.

2016 has seen a new layout installed which sees high speed sections join tight technical parts of the track to create an environment that is unforgiving to drivers who make mistakes.   We continue to make improvements with more track lighting installed, and new jump frames installed in the lead p to this event.

We would also like to thank our Event Sponsors, Launceston Toyota, Hearns Hobbies, Trophy Traders and Hot Toddys Heater Installs and Rebecca Green & Associates.  Without their help and support this event would be very difficult to continue to hold.
