2018-Poster2

This two day race meeting will bring together the best drivers from around Tasmania and Australia for two days of intense indoor, electric R/C car racing with a range of classes providing an option for just about every EP R/C Off Road racer.

Our regular Launceston R/C Cup is normally open to members and non members alike, however as a sanctioned AARCMCC event we can only accept entries from people who are members of AARCMCC affiliated clubs. However Launceston R/C always welcomes new members, and most certainly welcomes spectators!

Sponsorships: We are on the hunt for sponsors, so if you know of any businesses that may be interested please let Richard Green know at greeny@richardgreenphotography.com.au.

Sponsorship’s are available at a price and level to suit any business, and prizes for the raffle will also be accepted as a sponsorship.
