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 would have come along not too long after that.

The old Ninco Plastic track was brilliant and those Ninco Mosler Lead Sleds were damn fast.

We certainly destroyed a few A1 GP cars there lol.

I don’t have any results from last night, but I was pleased that the track and timing worked after a long hiatus.

Crocket hasn’t mislaid his driving skills, and his car building is as good as ever. It was great watching him and Pat, in his 3D printed car going head to head.

Thanks for the good turnout on the night before the Easter break.

Great to have you back in the groove  Crocket. Seeing the scratch built Holden and Ford duke it out door to door for so many laps was something else. 
Great to be back in Bahia Vista. Cheers Pedro.

I am thinking there are tricks to soldering in axle bushes. 
I got them in, and the axle rotates, but it was a battle.

All a learning experience.
