Full results from last Friday’s meet can be found here.
This post is notice that Launceston R/C Inc will hold their Annual General Meeting on Friday the 13th of September at 7PM Sharp. The meeting will be held at the Uniquely Tasmanian Pavillion at Quercus Park, Carrick before racing that evening.
Please help by being ready right at 7pm so we can get the meeting done, and on with the more important business of racing.
If you would like to be a member of the committee please remember that you need to be a financial member, and be nominated and seconded by other financial members. See you then.
Launceston R/C would like to thank everybody who competed in the 2019 Tasmanian State Titles, and congratulate the winners of the various classes.
For Full results follow the links below to Live RC.
We also offer our most sincere thanks to our sponsors, Hearns Hobbes and Launceston Toyota, without whom the event would have been impossible to run.
For those that want to see some “In Car” footage from the weekend look no further than some of the footage shot in conjunction with Southern Cross news who came along for a look at Friday practice.
We were also fortunate to have the examiner visit as well
We also need to thank David Olding from Grid Graphics for the event bumper stickers that he printed up for the event. Each entrant should have one so if you missed out see a committee member, otherwise extras are available for purchase.
OK we are back into the club racing once again after what would seem a successful State Title, well done to all involved.
As normal gates open 5pm racing starts 7pm the BBQ will be ago and tea and coffee will be available.
And just a reminder if you are in need of new tiers the club will have them available to purchase. So if you want to stay at the pointy end of the field get your new rubber
Hope to see you all there for some good fun and shoulder to shoulder racing
We have a bit of a Good news / Bad news update this afternoon.

The Good news is that the Rear Tyres still to come will arrive in time for those that have placed orders. We also have stock of the following tyres. If you need any catch up with Brady Anthes and he can sort you out:
In other news, the Yokomo kit for the raffle from Sponsor Hearns Hobbies has arrived, Alex Cort has the raffle tickets and you can purchase them now, with tickets $2 each, or 3 for $5

RACING SUNDAY 4TH
Sorry for short notice but Friday 2nd has been changed to Sunday 4th
WHY PEOPLE ASK
This was decided so as to give people an opportunity for more track time in the lead up to the State Titles. The format will be different to other Sundays gates open 9am racing start 10.30am,
Once racing has finished the track will under go transformation for the State Titles so any one who would like to have input and to help with this process are more than welcome. Depending on track being completed will determine weather or not there will be a small practice session on new lay out to make sure track flows
So if you haven’t already get those entries in order your tires and come have some fun
