Press Release: The 7th Annual Launceston Toyota R/C Cup

25, 26 and 27 August 2017

Following on from another successful event in 2016, Launceston R/C is proud to announce the 2017 Launceston Toyota R/C Cup in conjunction with Launceston Toyota, Metro Hobbies and Rebecca Green & Associates. 2017 once again continues to see interstate interest with entries from NSW, Victoria and all around Tasmania. We have already recorded 70 entries to date and with entries still coming in it is looking to be a competitive field once again in 2017.

Racing will take place across the entire weekend with practice starting on Friday at 2pm, 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.  Running on Empty will be on site with their food van to cater to those needing a food or a coffee hit. 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.  Access is via the road on the southern side of the Quercus Park site (Beyond the two access roads used for Agfest)

2017 has seen further improvements made to the track, racing surface and drivers stand to continue to attract and engage with competitors.   With more lighting, a challenging track layout and many drivers vying for first place the competition will be exciting!

We would also like to thank our Event Sponsors, Launceston Toyota, Metro Hobbies and Rebecca Green & Associates.  Without their help and support this event would be very difficult to continue to hold.
