Hello all,
Am looking forward to running the event - 8/9th June. We will be running the cars on two tracks:
Track 1 is Ninco, Track 2 is Carrera. The control tyres worked very well on both.
Will post up some track pictures once I have done a bit of tidying...
My brother Adrian and friend Crawford will be the drivers, myself and my nephew Christopher will be marshalling, timing, photographing etcetera.

Kind regards, Leo

Have been advised that the cars have been posted from Canada, and should be in Leo's hot little hands in about a week or so.

Got a surprise this morning - the cars have arrived !!

The delivery arrived yesterday when no-one was home so I went to collect it this morning. No mention of need for any payment :- )
Not unpacked the cars yet, box is in good shape so no concerns.
I scheduled the troops for 8/9th June but will ask them to gather sooner.
I was expecting a parcel from Germany and assumed this was it, although it was a lot larger than I expected. It was only when I put it in my car that I realised it was from Canada.
Will unpack the cars later today and aim to do a shakedown run tomorrow (Sunday 11th May).

That's good news, even better to be ahead of schedule as it provides even more flexibility.

Enjoy running them all

Great news, that they have arrived, even better news that your round will be run earlier.

Less pressure and you and your helpers can enjoy the round.

Don't forget, plenty of photo's

OK, 51 cars in the box. Not run any yet, but did check for drive train rotation and general condition.
6 in the service park. Not opened up any except for #21
21 - Guide mount tube detached from base - hope to fix this
81 - Rattle inside
58 - Body rocks so much that the tyres touch the arches - no marks on the tyres so must run OK ??
38 - Rear spolier detached
46 - Rear spolier detached
1 - Rear spolier detached

Car #21 is fixed :- ) Self-centering spring pin had detached
Car #81 - Its the navigator rattling about in the cabin - bit weird as the windscreen wipers are on the inside... No running rpoblems though
For the cars that have rear spoilers detached, owners please let me know if you want them glued back on. If not I'll leave them loose with the car number identified.

Shakedown tommorrow night.
Stage 1 on Saturday coming 18th - outside if weather dry, inside if not. Despite both being boring peeps, both drivers are going away on holiday during May so 2nd Stage likely to be the following weekend.
Hopefully run a third stage by reversing the direction - round the track that is.

Leo

The stage outside:-

The Stage inside - small room so hope you can get an idea of the layout. Clutter of 16 years...
This is on two levels.

Ah yes the old windscreen wipers inside! Only realised after I'd glued it all together after the respray! It's not helped the aerodynamics any!
The loose navigator may help the handling much like a side car passenger. The only way is up for my car since finishing dead last on stage 2 in Canada.

Thanks Leo , if the wing comes off easy enough on the 46 car ,just pull it off and leave it in the box. Weird that 3 cars had wing problems . Looks like those Canadian custom blokes took a liking to our cars. Failing that they didnt appreciate my email enquiring why we were hit with the penalty. Anyway have fun . Hey Knealer ,glad you havent had some navvies like Gazza,s . Ducks , dogs , you name it he's had it .
