2015 Nzsca 12 Hour Group C Enduro

SlotsNZ's Photo SlotsNZ 03 Jun 2015

It's time to start getting ready.
The National Group C 12 Hour teams Enduro Saturday 1st August 2015

Posted Image
This event has been run every year since 2008 and is a really, really good weekend. For teams of 4 to 6 drivers, each with a Slot.it Group C car in close to stock build specification. Driver and lane changes at 30 minute intervals.
The event this year will be the weekend of 31st July to 2nd August, and it will be hosted as per recent years at the huge Wellington Slot club facility, the steel chassis hosts clean the track of glue used in their racing just for the weekend, and always enter a team themselves.
If you are interested in being part of a team, but do not a bunch of local club mates to enter a team with, you can contact Chris Wong of Hawkes Bay club, or myself to register your interest, as there are always people in a similar position, wanting to become part of a team.
Chris' email kennedyrd-home@xtra.co.nz or myself.
Rules Set here - pretty straight forward, and well sorted through as to what can and can't be done to cars, from several years of scrutineering. [Only I stuffed up last year and needed good graces from Chris and other teams LOL ]

Including a Le Mans style night session under car lights, it is just a really enjoyable day of racing, and I cannot recommend it too strongly.

Is this official
If so that is a shame
But if there is not enough commitment by now there properly won't be
Best it is announced now before people fork out money on motels etc

Was talking to Jeremy in Auckland last night, apparently he and Mike were having trouble getting enough guys together for a team from there, so that was one down.

I guess a lot going on and cost maybe a factor. This is a major race and an awesome weekend. So what about the World record attempt? Just one car? or 4 lanes full. Would be keen to be part of a team
