2017 Launceston R/C Cup – Update No.5

The days of the Launceston Cup are fast approaching so now is the time to start making preparations.  No.1 Get your entries in NOW!  Classes are filling and in some instances we have stopped taking entries, or have limited spaces remaining.  Check your classes entered here, and you can find the link on how to enter on the same page  Please also make your payments if you have not done so already, again there are instructions on the Cup page.

High Voltage Lipo Batteries

The committee has been asked for clarification if the new 7.6V HV (High Voltage) batteries are allowed.  As per the AARCMCC regulations for Electric Off Rad, section 12, these batteries are allowed, HOWEVER they are only to be charged to 4.2 volts per cell, or a total of 8.4 volts maximum for the battery pack.  This is the same as the ROAR regulations, and spot inspections will be undertaken at the cup to ensure compliance.

What should I do to prepare?

For many drivers this is their first major meet, and if you have any questions most racers are only to willing to help out.  However this excellent article written by past member Scott Guyatt is an excellent document to read, or re familiarise yourself with School of R/C: Preparing for a Major Meeting

Behaviour at the Cup

We expect everybody to behave in a professional manner, and within the rules, be it spectating, marshalling or racing.  If you are unsure of anything, another old article entitled School of R/C: The Ethics of R/C is worth a read.

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.


For further information about the event visit our website at and for updates see our Facebook page at

If you would like to discuss this more details of the event, you can contact me by email or by phone on 0419 872 883.
