I thoroughly enjoyed my first APC. Fantastic hosts, Mobile Raceways is a great venue and I loved the track. Congratulations and thanks to all involved.


And to my partners in merriment, now I know why you go on these things. From the road trip enriched by old mate Joe, to the beers, belches and snoring, what a blast. I think I even got myself a new nick name.


Thanks Poppy, I couldn't have done it without you.

I had a great time at my first APC aswell.


Thanks to all the guys that made the trip down from places above the border, all a great bunch of blokes that made the whole weekend fun and eventful.


Thanks to Simon for having me as a team mate in FLM and GroupC, two for two, it doesn't get any better than that!

Thanks to Paul, for the loan of that beautiful CroupC Nissan, and for all the knowledge and advice you gave me over the weekend, people like you make the hobby better for being part of it.


Thanks to Werner, for putting on such a great event, so good I'll be back next year. :)


And last but not least, Thanks to GregC, for all you've done getting the event down to Melbourne, and for all your work getting the Melbourne guys to be part of it.


Here's some results from Sunday for those interested.

What a great weekend, it was without a doubt the best slot car race I have been to. Fantastic venue and atmosphere. Racing was incredibly close and competitive due to the nature of what I think is the best scale track in Australia.


It was great to see so many new faces and enthusiasm for the best formula of slot car racing in Australia. Muscle cars were the highlite of the weekend for me looked awesome and the racing was incredibly close across the whole field. Loved watching the personal battles progress across the weekend amongst all levels of drivers. I enjoyed watching the races as much as I did racing.


Pagey the offer of showing you how to build fast cars is open as long as you show me how to paint bodies your cars were stand outs.


Massive thank you to Werner for putting on the best Model Car race each year, APC is head and shoulders the best slot car event on the Australian Calendar. Rules are fair and the plafit equipment is the best value product available.


All my cars on the weekend were standard out of the box with no additional parts upgrades or changed chassis plates, with exception of my GTJ which used 3deg independent front end and carbon fibre parts and was beaten by a standard 1900 chassis anyway.


Peter from Mobile Raceways ran a great meeting it was the best directed APC yet. Ran on time with no disputes and the quality of the race centre is second to none, please put on some more events so I can come and race there more.


Look forward to seeing all the guys from Sydney and Melbourne again at next APC and the Endurance Race in November, which will be the best Endurance Race on the Australian Calendar.

Absolutely awesome is how I will remember my first APC Event. So much fun and laughter on the road trip down and back with good mates that have become great mates Chris, Rod and Steve. Meeting up with JJ and Vito, we completed the Dapto Rat Pack.


To the local blokes on Thursday night, thanks for allowing us to share in the fun with mini z and FJ. It felt like Dapto home night.


To the competitors in the APC, it was great meeting and racing against you. It was great to meet some modest champs with poor dress sense and other first timers like myself. There was some great races in the B and C heats, especially for me against Tony. There was good etiquette and sportsmanship throughout the weekend in the races and in the pits. The banter and fun made it a weekend to remember. Hopefully I didn't upset anyone. If I did, give me a call and I will send down some of Steve's magic polish. It seems to remove anything and should remove a Pagey mark.


A couple of highlights for me were the historics race and the GTJ. It the historics, Paul with his only poor qualifying lap ended up in B grade with me. What a race, 3 blokes separated by 0.5 second? 2 blokes with plenty of trophies and 1 local first timer Chris who also came equal first in the concourse, what an awesome effort? Paul got the lollies in the end in B grade. Awesome race, with no losers.

In the GTG, Greg, local and crowd favourite drove well for his win. Greg's work Ives the weekend was appreciated.


Thanks to Peter and his staff. Fantastic facility and great tracks. Thanks Ladies for some good food!


The race program jam packed and very well run.


Thanks to Werner. I loved the experience and hope to be in Queensland next year with some more of the Dapto boys. I can't guarantee Hawaiian shirts, maybe some sleeveless flannies.


A massive thanks to Jimmy Patterson, our home town leader, master car builder, master painter and all round good bloke. Thanks for the advice and help for the event. We are all so much better when you are around. We are all hopeful that you'll be there next year to lead the Dapto Rat Pack!


Cheers Pagey

DITTO.You guys hit the nail on the head. It was a great weekend and reminded me of a carnival, having the fellas from interstate travel in mass was a great effort and very much appreciated. It was also great to put faces to the names on the forum. Thanks to Greg, Jason, Rocket Rod, Chris, Steve, Simon, Paul, JJ, Vitto for giving us the best racing weekend. 54 photos from Sunday racing, had to put them in an album.






ps:- sorry if I forgot someone.
