I just figured out. Our club built the first (Ninco) club track over summer in 2006/07, and held our first race in Feb 2007.

We have now been slamming doors and spinning rubber for 15 years. That’s a pretty good achievement.

Several of us are founding members. At the start. - Mac, Myself, Graeme (EME), Ross .. any others I missed?
If we could woo Wongy and Munter back to track, I know that is two more. As was Bryan F. who has been back a couple of times recently for a looksie. Glen Chan and his son at Cool Toys were two more.

If Graeme’s son Aaron and cousin Jason do come for a look, that would be two more of the “originals”

I am back early but won’t make racing. I had to hurriedly change my flights to get away from what turned out to be a covid hotspot. People were dropping all around me with positive test results. I felt like I was in Mariopol dodging bullets.

BIG NEWS: Metrorama is back!

Five years ago we raced some old Scaley Metros - possibly the worst car that Scalextric ever produced - in a series on our local tracks. Detailed HERE Metrorama was the most fun I have ever had on AUSLOT and the racing itself was a boat load of fun too.

The whole idea behind this series is to encourage everyone in our racing group to think outside the square and have a go at polishing a MetroTurd until it runs as 'Swiss watch' as possible. I have accumulated enough cars for everyone in the club to have a crack at working up their own Metro. If anyone can't be bothered (or feel a build is beyond their skill set), I have some loaners from the last series that you can run - but I hope that most will enjoy the challenge of fiddling with their own Turd.

Thanks to Pat, we will be racing for the Turd Polisher Cup.

Rules are the same as last time. Hopefully, I'll be able to convince Munter to vac-form windows and interiors again, but from there it's pretty open as long as you use the stock chassis (it can be modified) and the outside of the car looks stock. Painting your MetroTurd is highly encouraged. Again, this whole gig is about getting more skills in our group and encouraging those who don't normally try and build cars to get their hands dirty.

The transformation from stock to modified is night and day

The car on the left is stock (believe it or not it has its guide in the slot) The car on the right has been lowered and set up to race. From memory, some of these Turds were lapping my track in the very low 7s bracket, so they can really haul the mail if you get them right.

There are some build ideas in the Metrorama thread HERE and some shots of the competing Turds HERE

If there is enough interest, I suggest that we run them on each track once or maybe twice, in the same way that we ran the FLY Classic series a couple of years back. Start time could be in a couple of months. No rush, and I am happy to help anyone who wants a hand getting their Turd into shape. 

Who's in?
