Hearns Hobbies 2019 State Titles Update No.1

Welcome to the first update for the 2019 RCRA state titles.

In the first, and probably most obvious news, we are pleased to announce Hearns Hobbies have come on board as the Naming sponsors for this years event.  As a part of this they have donated a Team Associated B6.1 Carpet Edition kit for our raffle.  The raffle will be drawn at Midday on Sunday of the event with tickets $2 each, or 3 for $5.

In other major news we are also excited to welcome back Launceston Toyota as a major sponsor for 2019 after last sponsoring the event in 2017.  It’s great to see them back on board again.


The third major piece of news is that we have secured the services of the Little Red Coffee and Food van again this year, they will have hot drinks, their famous sweet treats as well as some hot food for lunch.


For more details on any of these items please visit the Event Page for 2019 and of course head over to the facebook pages, websites and stores of our sponsors and show them your appreciation for their support.

May Bash at St John Craft Beer

Launceston R/C was set up with a generic sounding name for a reason, so that if there was the interest we could branch out to Quad Racing, Aerobatics, rc construction equipment, crawlers or whatever.

May brings a different opportunity for everybody for a get together as Launceston R/C has been asked to participate in a Photography workshop run by Stallards Camera House.  Olympus is launching a new camera, and our RC cars are providing a fast target for the photography on the 23rd of May from 6pm until 8 pm.

Any electric vehicles are welcome, I will probably have my Rally Car on drift tyres as well as a racing buggy or two.  So bring our monster truck, bring your short course truck, but just make sure it is ELECTRIC, not nitro.  We will be running in St John Craft Beer’s carpark to the rear and we hope to have some ropes and jumps there to lay out a bit of a circuit.

This is a great chance for some fun and relaxed time behind the wheel, although it will be on bitumen so have appropriate tyres!  We will need to have the cars running for 3 sessions of 30 minutes, so between multiple batteries and staggered runs I am sure we can give the photographers some interesting photography subjects. It is also a great PR opportunity for the club to introduce new people to what we do, so your best behaviour is required!  We will also be given many of the images taken to use for club promotion, or your own personal memories.   If you are available we need to be set up before 6:30, so help setting up would be great.

Please comment here or on the facebook group if you are available.

Racing Friday

OK every body this is the last meeting for the next 2 months due to Agfest

With that being said after the racing Friday night with every bodies help we will pack up all the ropes and carpet. This makes the night a little longer but if every one helps it doesn’t take long. For those people who have tables,lights car stands etc. they will need to be collected Friday night, you will not have access to them for 2 months and there will be no responsibility for any damage to items with the move.

Then Saturday after noon 2pm I ask the help of people to transport every thing up to the container. So if you have a trailer or ute and can help this will also make for a shorter day.

Next question if any one has access to a car trailer this would help greatly as we do not have access to the trailer we have used in the past, hope some one can help this is mainly for the rolls of carpet

See you all Friday
