Here's a photo of the Hopetoun track.

Timing is by Garry J.

Hopetoun is in the Southern Mallee, about 400km North West of Melbourne along the Calder and then Sunraysia Highway. It's only a small town, population around 600, so I'm not sure what the accommodation is like. Might do best travelling the 100km south to Horsham.

Thanks Ember, I never have luck posting pictures on Auslot . I had tried to post the poster for the event . I tried ending the URL in IMG and a few other things but it just comes up as broken. Could be that I am using a MAC and OSX but I have tried over the years & it won't upload from from Photobucket. Never mind I don't have much to post anyway.
Also I wonder if you could email me re the Tasman Cup. Looks like we have the same car - Lotus 24.
I would like mine to be different re livery - Probably Jack's car but # 26 - think that was at Spa and in the Lotus Green
as far as I can work out.

As well I will try to post the rules for the Hopetoun event here . - Do you have a 1/24 Group C BRM I have 4 teams ( of 2) so far.
so have room for another 4.
Cheers, john

  • The front & rear tyres are to be the same size as supplied as original equipment by BRM Italy .
  • Wheels and Tyres must not be visible outside the body when viewed from above.
  • Rear tyres are to be MJK Engineering, Ortman or other approved Urethane or BRM Italy E22.
  • No chemicals to be used on tyres for treatment.
  • The chassis can be Inline or Angle winder. Gear ratios are optional.
  • Magnets can be installed as the Hopetoun Model Raceway does not have magnetic braid.
  • It is advised to cover screws with tape to prevent loss during the race.
  • Trimming of the front edge of the Chassis to allow braid clearance is allowed.
  • The standard BRM motor cannot be modified in any way.

  • Up to 20 grams of weight can be added to the car. The ballast weight must be secured inside the chassis. The chassis must clear the flat track surface by 2mm.

TECHNICAL TIPS - IN LINE GEARS
It is best to set these cars up with zero lash at the tightest spot on the crown gear, and no side float in the rear axle.
Any side float will allow the mesh to change as the car switches from left to right in the turns changing mesh or lash and quickly destroying gears. The fitting of the BRM crown wheel spacer kit is recommended
4:1 or 4.2:1 are the commonly used ratios. 9 tooth pinions produce the better mesh.

Hi From John, Paul from Hopetoun has built the Hopetoun Model Car Raceway . It is a very well built professional track. Being eight lane with some very fast flowing corners but also some sections requiring driving skill. The timing is by Johnson and has a display screen in front of the drivers.
controllers plug in with the usual "240 Volt " sockets wired to the Australian standard.

1/32 & 1/24 Cars are at home on the track .
Although Paul does run some "glue for the commercial operation, He as I do prefers running Rubber or Urethane tires . So we have agreed to run this event on urethane or rubber with no sponge or goo or glue allowed.

There is a great Carrera Digital track if you have any Carerra bring them for a bit more fun.

Classes on the main race day are :
The Ninco Mclaren Track Cars. So this race will be good for learning the circuit and also sharpening the driving skills.
Then the 1/32 Open Gt Class. Just about every slot car enthusiast has a car for this class.

Next is the BRM Italia 1/24 Group C Cars. This is a an "out of the box" class but does allow the
motor to change from the standard red motor in early in lines to the "Pink" motor in the latest angle winder series. The motor is to be standard & not tampered with

There are kits available to convert inline to angle winder with motor included for around
$ 50 AUD. However with careful attention to the gears we at FPR have found the Inline can be a match with the angle winders. Cars that are BRM group C are : the Porsche 962, Toyota 88C and the
Mercedes Sauber. The guide & braid can be changed as well as the tyres to BRM Italia ( E 22 recommended) or any urethane tyre that the brand can be identified.
Prize for this event is a special edition 1/24 BRM Mercedes Sauber Group C

There will be 3 scrutineers for the event , David & Max with myself in as an 3rd scrutineer.

1/24 Open GT. This The final Individual event will be 1/24 Open GT . This is open to any commercially produced Car or chassis with a Resin body. No home built chassis.
the motor has to be specified by the manufacturer to a maximum RPM of 25000.
But also allowed are the Plafit Fox or Cheetah motors as they are low torque.
All motors are to be standard, unopened & not tampered with.
The prize for first place in this race is a very nice Scale Auto Dodge Viper

The BRM Group C Enduro The final event at the Hopetoun GT Challenge for 2015.
The cars are to be "OTB" as the above explanation for the BRM Group C class.
Lights are to be fitted front & rear and be working at the start of the race.
The race is for 2 or more drivers per team . It will run for one hour in the light then one hour in
night conditions.
No award has been offered as yet for this event.

Friday night prior to the event will be some fun racing & practice . No scrutineering just fun for
V8 super cars - Scaly standard motor and Slot.it Group C.

Hopetoun has cafe's, pubs & supermarkets open for meals.
Refeshments are available at the Raceway.

Hope to see you there - Paul & John

Hopetoun event entries - WHERE ARE THE MIGHTY V's ???

As of today the 1st of February we have from South Australia :
David , Graham, Max , Bear, Peter, Andy & Julie, Chad ( and Friend possibly) & Myself

From VIctoria
Paul !!!! only??

Paul & I organized this event as an opportunity People from Vic & SA to meet in the middle
- 5 hours from Adelaide & 4 hours from Victoria and have some great fun & racing.
Also for those in country Victoria to support this event.

So far it looks like the SA slotters have well supported the event with about 8 or 9 from SA attending .
We are wondering where the Victorians are ? any suggestions ???? Where is the VIctorian support for this country Victorian Heartland event ??
As far as I have seen a lot of Victorians have the classes of cars in the event.

Are you Vics going to allow South Aussies take home the spoils from this great Victorian Raceway?

Slotters from other states are more than welcome to compete !!

I'm going to try to get there. It'll be great to be able to meet some more folk. But I have no urge to compete.

It would be nice to see some of the Ballarat and Melbourne crews come along. Peter's place is perfectly located for an interstate showdown.

And there are a lot of other things to see and do in the region.
