  1. Hi All, Last night Slot Shop welcomed us all to what was Round 2 of the Sydney Interclub Challenge. Eddie and his fantastic team of staff and helpers have been working hard over the last month moving into their new premises, and it was an absolute privilege to host the first race in the new shop. The place looks fantastic, and we congratulate them on their big move. Onto the race and we had eleven teams of 2 drivers, across 4 clubs battle it out again over 1.2 hours in what turned out to be another epic race. As always there were plenty of competitors that arrived early to take advantage of practice and any last minute mechanical changes required for the race. Some teams opted to race the same car as Round 1, while others took advantage, and changed cars more suited to the Slot Shop Track. As per last round, All teams passed scrutineering without any problems. Next on the program was Qualifying. Once again teams had one minute to set their fastest time on a nominated lane. There were plenty of nerves as some felt the pressure of everyone watching you set your fastest possible time and trying to snatch pole. The Slot Shop guys were fast as expected with Slot Shop 3 (Graeme & Mario) taking out the pole with a 4.462 second lap driving the #85 Nissan R89C. Second went to Slot Shop 2 (Sean & Adam) only just behind with a 4.507 second lap. The Lancia LC2/85 performing strong to bag a strong lap time. Third Place went to Armchair 2 (Jason and Ian) posting a time of 4.580 seconds with their #25 Nissan R89C. Qualifying ultimately set the starting grid for the race, with many of the fastest teams once again opting to start on a bye and come on at a later stage. The race was split into 2 stages. This enabled each driver to race on each lane once throughout the night, 4 lanes in leg one and the other 4 lanes in leg two. At the end of leg one, It was Slot Shop holding out the top 2 positions, Sean and Adam leading with 494 laps, Graeme and Mario 2 laps behind with 492 laps and Jason and Ian from Amrchair 2 holding onto third with 478 laps. There was a great battle forming in leg two, as the Slot Shop teams battled it out for braging rights. Graeme and Mario triumphed to take out the second part with 507 laps, Adam and Sean second with 502 laps and Jason and Ian third with 484 laps. Overall after adding up both parts it was a win for Slot Shop, Mario and Graeme driving a commanding race with a well setup car, winning with a total of 999 laps one short of the ton. Second also went to Slot Shop, Adam and Sean finishing up 3 laps behind with 996 laps. Ian and Jason held on to take out 3rd place, completing with a total of 962 laps. After 2 Rounds, The team champions went to Slot Shop 3, Graeme and Mario putting in two fanstaic results to take victory with 41 points. Second overall went to One:32nd World 1, Joe and Youngy finishing up with a total of 33 points. a top effort espicially after racing at Slot Shop for the first time last night. Third place went to Armchair 2, Jason and Ian completing the series with 27 points. The Interclub Champions for 2016 went to Slot Shop with a total of 75 points. Great racing by all Slot Shop teams, proving that they are Sydney's premier racing group.

  6. Hi All, Last night One:32nd World played host to Round 1 of the Sydney Interclub Challenge 2016. Ten teams of 2 drivers, across 4 clubs battled it out over 1.2 hours in what turned out to be an epic race. There were plenty of competitors that arrived early to take advantage of practice and any last minute mechanical changes required for the race. The St Andrews teams only seeing the track for the first time yesterday were making the most of the time available. It was great to see plenty of spectators that turned up too to check out the action. This included Clubs from Xtreme Trax Dapto and Scalextric Club Australia. We hope they can join us next time with a team or two. All teams passed scrutineering without any problems. In the motor department, there was little variation between the teams, all revving out within 2 kph of each other on the speed checker. Next on the program was Qualifying. This was a new experience for quite a few drivers, as each team had one minute to set their fastest time on a nominated lane. There were a lot of nerves as some felt the pressure of everyone watching you set your fastest possible time and trying to snatch pole. Mick Young (Youngy) gave it his all for One:32nd World, posting a blistering 7.038 second lap with his Toyota to claim Pole Position. A great job considering this was his first qualifying experience. Jason (Brooksy) managed to squeeze into 2nd position for Armchair, 7.212 seconds was his fastest with the Nissan. Mario took out 3rd place for Slot Shop, the Nissan managing a fastest lap of 7.218 seconds. Qualifying ultimately set the starting grid for the race, with many of the fastest teams opting to start on a bye and come on at a later stage. The race was split into 2 stages. This enabled each driver to race on each lane once throughout the night, 3 lanes in leg one and the other 3 lanes in leg two. At the end of leg one, It was One:32nd World that were holding out the top 3 positions. John and Anthony (Caddo) stormed to the front, the Lancia holding a 3 lap lead over the filed with a total of 340.8 laps. Joe and Youngy were in second with their Toyota completing 337.5 laps. Third were George and Dave with 331.5 laps also with a Toyota, enjoying their first ever competition race event. Part two of the race saw a few teams come undone, Slot Shop 2 comprising of Sean and Adam having a few rear wing problems and lead wire issues throughout the race. Armchair 2 (Ian and Brooksy) also had to reattach their wing with race tape as it came off in one of the warm up laps before the heat start. However it was John and Caddo that bagged the double finishing with 349.6 laps. Joe and Youngy second with 340.0 laps, and Slot Shop 3 comprising of Mario and Graeme taking out 3rd place with 328.9 laps. Overall after adding up both parts it was a win for One:32nd World, John and Caddo driving a commanding race with a well setup car, winning with a total of 690.5 laps. Second also went to One:32nd World, Joe and Youngy finishing up 13 laps behind with 677.5 laps. Mario and Graeme jumped up the order to take out 3rd place, completing with a total of 655.5 laps. In the Interclub Challenge, One:32nd world leads with 46 points, Slot Shop second with 27 points, Armchair third with 19 points and St Andrews forth with 16 points. We must thank again Graham and Simmy from One:32World for hosting us last night within their wonderful premises. For full race results and photos, please check out the posts below for more info. We hope to see you in 2 weeks’ time at Slot Shop for round 2 of the Sydney Interclub Challenge. Regards, Sydney Interclub Challenge
  7. Today's the day! Round 1 of the Sydneuy Interclub Challenge at One:32nd World. Official Practice is scheduled from 5pm, with Scrutineering from 6pm to 6:30pm. Looking foward to seeing you all then!
  8. Here are some photos of the Speed Checker and Power Supply we will be testing cars on tomorrow night. At 12 volts, All three Armchair Cars rev out between 25kph and 26kph. Interesting to note that the Nissan has the new 23,000 MX16 motor in it, however it's slower that the Orange can motors by 1 kph. As like tony stated above, so long as they are within 1-2 kph on the same voltage speed as the track power, in this case 12 volts there should be no problems.
  9. It could depend on the Power Supply too Phil. So long has you haven't accidentally put in a 29,000 RPM motor or tampered with the motor any way, you'll pass with flying colours. I'll have my equipment set up before practice so you can check an make sure it's under.
  10. Hi All, I just want to clear up a few queries from some of you in regards to the rear rims and tyres, more specifically the tyre diameter size. With the Original Group C Rear Rim (SIPA43AL) and Sideways 19x10 High Grip Tyres Un-trued (SWHG1S), the maximum starting diameter is 20.3mm. To ensure no one is running the wrong rim and gaining an unfair advantage, especially with the long straights at 1:32nd World, We will be checking tyre diameter sizes. Any one found to be over 20.3mm will fail scrutineering. No excuses for being over the limit will be tolerated. Please ensure that you are running with the "Original Slot It Group C" rims that came with that car. You won't have a problem passing then. Regards, Sydney Interclub Challenge Committee
