Hi Guys,

 

Finally back home in Sydney and already missing the sunshine weather. Stepping off the plane was a huge shock. 12 Degrees!

 

Anyway, What a fantastic weekend of racing that was. probably the best experience thus far. What a great turn out from both QLD, VIC and NSW. i believe 24 drivers in total? the atmosphere was exceptional. Really great racing with some exciting close battles.

 

Congrats to all the race winners, Paul, Jason, Simon and Andrew. Very deserving winners for each class. Also congrats to the other podium placers, Cam, Jim, Chris and others (if i have forgotten anyone) with their supreme driving and building skills.

 

For me, I had a great weekend, a couple of 2nd's and 3rd's was great, but to make the top split in every race was a highlight for sure. Made a few mistakes in a couple of races which you always learn from for next time. Always very passionate to do my very best.

 

Thanks to everyone that made the event possible. Werner and Akira for organizing the event and quite possibility the best track i have driven on yet. Andrew and Torque Ford for hosting the event. the best place to host a slot car race. I hope we go back soon even if Andrew has lost his job! :lol: .All the Queensland drivers for coming out to drive. it was great meeting you all again or for the first time. Also to Greg from Victoria for making the long trip up. Werner's wife (sorry forgot the name) for looking after us in the best possible way. Red Racer (again forgot the name) for looking after us for spare last minute parts. Also to Gary Johnson for working his magic with the timing and lap scoring a always

 

Also a huge thanks to all the Dapto guys! Jim, Cam, Chris, Rod, Greg, Michael, Vito and JJ. Had a cracker with all of you, laughing all the way! memories to keep and talk about for future years. Again thanks to Jim, Cam and Chris for building and lending out cars to race with. possibly the best pit crew ever. Also to Rod for managing and organizing me with the cars.

 

it was quite possibly the APC to date! Looking forward to the next one already somewhere in Australia. So long as it's warm!

 

Brooksy!

Ding ... In your last photo the 'ending-backslash' is the wrong slash. You need the one that leans to the right, not the left

Just a Quick word to ditto what Jason has already said. A fantastic weekend and many thanks to those who organised , came , saw and conquered.

Werner, Akira, Andrew and Torque Ford, Garry and all else should be very proud of hosting a fantastic event and one I can't wait to attend again.

A big thanks to all the Dapto guys who helped me over the weekend and have inspired me to get better and faster. It was great weekend.

Hello again

 

Same as above , Extremely huge weekend of slotcar racing that will last in the memory for ages. Saturday was unparalleled with 30 odd drivers competing across the classes with many visitors and spectators showing up. There was plenty going on to keep the buzz happening. I particularly enjoyed seeing quite a few new faces or entries this year along with the many folks I have come to know.

 

Sunday on the other hand had an after party feel about it with everyone starting off the day in a very friendly relaxed atmosphere that carried on throughout the day which gave plenty of opportunity to socialize and relax.

 

A big congratulations to Werner , Andrew and the team for continuing the fine tradition of APC at Torque Ford. It really is a special weekend that is a celebration of Model Car Racing in Australia.

 

I would also like to offer my sincere appreciation for the guys that travel across the country to attend this event because it's the people that make the event in the end. I look forward to catching up next year to do it all again in another corner of our slotcar kingdom.

 

Still recovering

Paul

Great weekend.

 

Congratulations to all the winners Paul, Jason, Simon and Andrew.

Thanks again to Werner for organising, Garry for the race directing and Akira for the track.

The new guys from Dapto had a ball and would have learn't heaps, they will be back bigger and better next year.

Well done to the Dapto guys on the podium, great effort given the talent of drivers.

Great company and atmosphere, looking forward to next year.

 

Cheers,

 

- Cam

Hi Grant

 

Yes it went well , qualified 2nd and finished 2nd. At the end of the meeting I presented it to Akira Bano as a gift to remember his trip to Australia. I'll start building another one next week.

Great to see the race results, how close the racing was, and the number of entries. I counted 130 entries in the sprints and 27 Teams in the two teams events so obviously a very successful meet.

Anyone that won their heat or managed to get on the podium would have to be very happy with their result. Really good to see Jason Brooks now competitive in the "bigger class" and it gives me hope when I see "old buggers" like Jimmy still able to get onto the podium. Congratulations guys.

Would'nt mind knowing what the bodies were that got to the podium in Mini Z and 1/32.. any spec sheets out there?
