2016 Tasman Cup Entry Nominations

Recommended Posts

Happy new year Tasmanites.

 

Here is the latest entry list with all the updates. I got several messages over the last few weeks so I hope everything is correct.

 

We have 23 of 24 of last years entrants returning with only one to confirm. I will hold that spot for them until the last minute.

 

This is a fantastic response and thanks to everyone concerned.

OK, Alan, I'll be back with #6 although not sure on what car yet.

I enjoy racing. Winning or losing is secondary.

Yes please. Hopefully BT/3, but if not the Lotus will make a return.


Computers. They'll never catch on.

I'll be back, but Peter (RIR) and I are swapping race numbers. So #9 for me. Planning to build one of Phil's Lotus 32B shells with Jimmy in the cockpit.

Hi Alan,

I'm in with #4 again please, probably with the Cooper T62 but may get a round to a new car. Keep Mrs Broke as a reserve again in case a new entrant needs a spot on the grid.

HI Alan,

yes - I'm certainly back in for 2016... will run a T-53 Cooper again.

Revision 1 is on the building board, just a few small modifications from Bill's car - if it's competitive, it will enter with different number.

 

With the 2015 series culminating as such a wonderful success, I expect rules for the 24 field limit may be empowered early.

 

I am very confident that with apparent growing international interest, the field may fill before the end of this month.

 

For now I will limit my entry to a single car but would guarantee a third party proxy entrant for my second car if a grid position needs filling towards the closing date - but with "reserves" already in the waiting paddock after only two days' notice of next year's series, I fully expect my second car will not be required.

 

frats,

Rosco

I've been thinking about entering this...

 

How close to legal is the Scaley Cooper Climax T53?

Also, as number 2 may already be taken, can we just put any number on to an existing livery?

 

Edit:

Appears that the axles will be very difficult to get narrow enough...

Currently ~51mm from outer tyre to outer tyre on the rear axle.

I can easily narrow that to ~47mm, but getting down to the required ~44mm will will be quite difficult.

Wheelbase is ~70mm, and getting it to the required ~72.5mm should be doable...

 

Also, this livery was also run as #1, #10 and #53.

Hi Shadow,

 

RTR cars are not eligible. Looking back at the rules it is probably not stated as clearly as it should have been so I will amend that.

 

Chassis should be scratch built or fabricated in some way like a Penelope Pitlane chassis.

 

The T53 body is fine.

 

The maximum width allowed is 50.8mm (2") from sidewall to sidewall.

No worries Stubbo, I may have a go at making a chassis for it yet.

Thanks Embs.

Not sure if I'm going to build a brass-piano wire chassis, or a plastic one.

There have been three or four new releases of slightly different styles of the PP F1/GP chassis.

 

Read the Pendle site carefully to get an idea of the differences.

Slotcars are my preferred reality
