I wanted to get the Dave West car build masterclass off the ground earlier, but we are booked every weekend until August 13/14. 
Does this date suit? Was thinking a 'run what you brung' get together on Friday night, masterclass Saturday and a 2 hour race of some sort Saturday night. It's all tentative until I check that date out with Dave and the Wellington boys. Let me know, boys.

I'm a definite maybe ..... probably won't be sure until that week, or may be there for part of it.

Haha. Good vid Mark, and congrats on the Muscle car win; you had that Camaro flying.  Thanks for hosting Pat. Always a good vibe in the PatCave.

Your place sounds good on August 1, Pedro.  Cheers!

For those that haven't read this before, there's a lot to learn HERE   - and it's a taste of what will come when Dave West comes through on August 13/14. It looks likely we will have some guys from Wellington and Taranaki joining us for the masterclass weekend as well.

Thanks for last night Pat! Always good fun.

Mac I’ll be a definite at the masterclass. Will check with the handler and see what he thinks. 
 

Pedro, I’ll have to wait and see, but I’m keen!

Richard was saying that there was some discussion about my track blackwidow raceway at Pat's last night

Here is a pic of it for those who haven't  seen it

https://imgur.com/a/NPGLYV3

I will measure it on Saturday  and post here

If anyone is keen on it I am willing to let it go reasonably cheap if it keeps it in the club

But I can't  hold onto it for to long as I need the space in the shed

Okay, time to head to Oakland. Peter is about to cross the moat from the mainland, and expecting to be on deck this week. 

Classes below - Have dropped out GT1 to give the Pioneer Classics a run
This may be the only chance some guys get to test and shakedown theirs before we get into a round the tracks series with these.

Week 2

1 Pre 65 Classics

2 Slot It Group C

3 GT1   Pioneer Classics

I will be available from 5pm if anyone wants to rock up early and needs some help getting theirs tuned - maybe a spin on the tyre lathe etc.

Don’t you hate it when you turn up and no one else is there. It seems I was in Picton and the ferry I was booked on was due to leave Wellington. 
 

Currently in Wellington and nervous. I will decide on Thursday if I will attend Oakland.

Thanks for doing the lines for me as I did the same yesterday. Also had a dodgy brand new old stock Testors paint can which spat out bits. Have spent today and last night sanding as I don’t want to strip the paint. Also very slow to dry. Annoying as it is a relatively easy Pioneer Mustang build to Pete Geoghegan build.

I have 7 Pioneer white kits to livery up. Not the best of starts. Man there are some lovely units when you look around all the countries these are being raced.
Just enjoying being a nutty hobbyist....

Just a note to say that the Dave West masterclass is confirmed for 13/14 August.
We've had a bit of interest from some of the Wellington and Taranaki guys. Should be a good day in the shed. 
Run what you brung Friday Night . 
Masterclass from 9am Saturday, followed by a teams race of some sort - hopefully 2+ hours depending on time. Details to be advised on race format, but happy to take any suggestions.
