  1. Hi Alexis, Thanks for the update, and appreciate the remarks about the bushfires - something we're also very familiar with down here.... So, as I said back on July 9 - welcome to the GPR, Greek Proxy Race ! Sounds good to me ! Opa !! Cheers, Tony ( and his Greek wife... )
  2. So, unless I have this very much incorrect - Greece can run 4 - 5 rounds; I.O.M. can run 1 - 2 rounds; Australia ( me ) can run a round today if needs be ( we're that ready to go... , sadly I'm unaware of any other potential Aust. hosts at this time ); I'll go out on a limb here and suggest my mate Dale in Hawaii could run a round... So that looks like 8 or 9 rounds to start with, and if other hosts can be sorted, so much the better... Maybe I'm just keen to get things going.... Cheers, Tony.
  3. Not as bad as feared.... Posted a Proxy Car to the States on 01.07.20, delivered on 15.07.20...Standard AUD $21- postage with Tracking.... Was told to allow 3-4weeks, got there in 2.... Happy Days ! Cheers, Tony.

    Peter Brock Trophy

    I was pitting for Toby ( RIP.. ) when he won the Brock @ Thomastown in Vic in '81... He was meticulous - he used two Parma Turbo controllers, and had me polishing the resistor of the 'other controller' during each bracket. We also installed new braids and re-lubed every lane change, while he glued his lane.. An awesome builder, and a fairly unassuming kind of guy to boot..... Good memories - blimey 39 years ago.....
  5. Welcome to the GPS - the Greek Proxy Series... Alexis, you have the cars - you have some tracks - you may as well run them..... I'm sure a lot of people would like to see something ( anything ) for the time and expense invested in preparing and sending entries, rather than having them sit around for a period of time with nothing to show for it, and then be sent back unfulfilled....... And this from someone who's not expecting any great results.... Cheers, Tony.
  6. Hi All, The #17 Peugeot went in the mail to Braidwood yesterday - hope it's not too embarrassing...... Cheers, Tony.
  7. Hi Paul, Entry fee for #17 Peugeot PayPal'd to you today - car should be in the mail to you next week or so.... Cheers, Tony.

    Yeah - the World Championship Proxy ( which I'm tentatively in... ) is certainly 'put on your big boys pants time...' Still pondering which way to go on that one... I think what PG is proposing is a version of SCI's slot.it Shootout. If it's suggested to do something similar, but within the ANZAC alliance, then I'd certainly support that - and host a round... I've hosted an Oz round of the Shootout for many ( over 10 ? ) years... Sounds pretty good to me ! Going back over old records, there was a 'downunder' slot.it Grp C proxy back in 2011. These were the entrants: Bov / Sauber C9 / #6 Bastumannen / Porsche 956C / #7 Obsidith / Porsche 956KH / #? Espsix / Porsche 956C / #14 Tazracer / Porsche 956C / #54 Ged / Jaguar XJR9 / #2 Slittlehales / Mazda 787B / #55 Miveson / Mazda 787B / #6 Manimmal / Porsche 962KH / #17 Jack B / Porsche 956KH / #19 Chris P / Sauber C9 / #60 Shodan / Sauber C9 / #47 There were some pretty good cars amongst that field, as I recall....

    Brock - Johnson Sierras

    Weren't they Rovers or Escort XR3s or something like that originally?

    Brock - Johnson Sierras

    Be prepared for a surprise at what Scalextric considered a Sierra, back in the day.......
  11. Nice - I'm still pondering which way to go for a chassis for that proxy, too...... There's a lot of options to consider... Either way, I'm sure it'll get hosed....... Chris, I have marveled at your soldering skills for a while now - I believe you're using a torch rather than an iron? How do you get the joints so neat? Your presentations are exemplary..
  12. My #17 Peugeot Coupe (non silhouette ) is ready to go....
  13. Hi Alexis, Thanks for the update - you're quite busy at the moment....
  14. From Joey Logano... " Nuthin' to it, but to do it..." I think it's a variation on the Nike slogan " Just do it..." To which I counter with " I think I procrastinate - but I better just wait and see..."
  15. Hi Alexis - can you please advise us on how arrivals have gone - is the whole field assembled?
