  1. I think that a World Series is not realistic in the foreseeable future, but a Single Venue which can access a few layouts could be appealing similar to the current Wales(UK) based event. Scotland is a bit difficult right now so not feasible. Leo
  2. Hello Alexis, Your proposal "Therefore my proposal stands as it is ,run as many rounds as possible localy in, lets say , a couple of months so that entrants can have an idea of where their cars stand and send the cars back. " seems like the most practical. BTW - If the parcel to Scotland was for me, I messaged you on SlotRacer to say that the chassis had arrived. Leo
  3. Hello Kevan, the full text would have been "I mean - " 4 races locally for the whole proxy to decide a proxy winner then send all the cars back to their owners" " My premise is that International shipping is still very slow so trying to get event continuity across borders will be difficult and the entrants will lose interest. Loss of continuity is frustrating for all entrants and the hosts who may have a narrow time-frame in which to run their round. WRP 2009 suffered from a long delay when the cars were shipped from Canada to Australia by boat - My revised suggestion - 4 races in Greece then transfer the cars to the IoM and for a few races and return the cars directly to owners from IoM (Alexis could include the individual boxes). Leo Linky:-
  4. Hello Kevan, I mean 4 races locally. Rather than simply return the cars without any running time. Leo
  5. If Alexis could arrange for 4 races in his local community that would be enough for me. Proxy events die if they are not run timeously. Leo
  6. Hello all, WRP and OZ Rally are separate events aren't they? I am mainly interested in WRP but might do Oz Rally Proxy if WRP is not running. Leo
  7. Hooray!! My Delta arrived back home just now. I don't know how Royal Mail work in the UK but I guess that mail coming to Scotland comes directly rather than via England. Perhaps this is in preparation for independence (LOL). Couldn't resist opening the box so it was on with the disposable gloves and cutting the box open. Pleasantly surprised to find my first ever slot-car trophy !! I don't mind repeating: huge thanks to Mel and the team for running the series and to all the hosts for giving up their time. #StaySafe Leo
  8. Cheers Mel, Nothing (at all) today but have not lost hope yet. Leo
  9. Well my tactic didn't work, Delta has not arrived today. Other Brit cars arrived two or three weeks ago so I'm starting to worry. All part of Proxy Racing though so not overly concerned if it never appears - although having now been run in, it would definitely win the next series (LOL!) Leo
  10. Hello all, My car has not arrived back home yet. I'm just posting this so that Murphy's Law kicks in and it arrives tomorrow :-) Leo
  11. Hello Mel and PhilK, Any feedback on the performance of the two Test Cars? Leo
  12. Congratulations to Keith, Mondeo and Gazza. The shortage of cars didn't really take anything away from the series. New-boy Bov/Tony gets a "well done" for salvaging the last round results data, as well as being fourth. Leo
  13. Hello Mel, I had a similar problem with a Dell XP desktop computer. I cannot recall the exact symptoms but it seemed like the motherboard was dead and that seemed unlikely. Eventually I replaced the coin battery for the real-time clock and settings and all was well again. That was about a year ago and it still works. . Leo
  14. Great to see you guys getting the wheels rolling again - a good sign that the situation down-under is improving. Hope you are able to enjoy the event. Leo
  15. Hello Mel, Acting as a carer for one's loved ones is a very exhausting experience, take care of yourself as well. I know its easy to say that, but its in your mum's best interests that you are available. Most people will willingly help where they can and just need to be asked. Leo
