2016%20Tasman%20Entry%20List%20Dec%207.jpg

 

Post 1 has been updated but I'll post the list here also.

 

We are still waiting for four of 2015's entrants to confirm their 2016 participation( I have heard from Adrian Gray).

 

If they all participate again we will have 30 cars next year, which will be a fantastic response.

No. Can you suggest one?

 

Bib Stillwell usually raced with #6 but that is already taken. When I get back to Melbourne I'll get the list updated and then we can work out a number.

Alan, if it will help, I can let go of #6 since I hadn't really decided on the model I am going to enter and can take on #70 so that I can use the bodyshells of previous cars which I entered for the VRAA and Tasman.

I enjoy racing. Winning or losing is secondary.

Stubbo,

 

The only pics I can find of the Stilwell #6 are from 1960 @ Phillip Is. (Dark red with a yellow stripe). Is this ok for the Tasman Cup class on s Copper T53?

 

Pics on autopics.com.au

 

 

The inly other image I can find is the Brabham Climax at Warwick Farm in 1964, which looks a little similar, though may be a subtle green...

 

I can't tell it the 1960 car is a T51 or a T53...

 

 

Yes. That's really kind. Thank you.

Now just to find some numbers then...

Many years ago I spoke to Bib about his colours. He told me he mainly raced in "British Racing Green with a lemon yellow stripe".

 

I have seen the pics of the red #6.

 

The rules don't require a specific livery. The main thing is that the livery is of the style/s used in that period of time.

 

So I'll leave it to you. Either is fine.

Hi Terry,

 

Lim gave up #6 for diffinity to use so it's still taken.

 

 

Thanks Stubbo, no worries, I had to ask

Hi Alan,

as expected - you had no issue with filling the entrant's list for the 2016 series.

If you would be so kind, can you ditch my reserve entry from the list.

I will continue with the second build, and enter if if completed for the next series with a number change.

Failing this, Bill will make a return in #53.

 

Great field of promising builds - and quite a few debutantes.

 

Great thanks to all hosts. who have allowed the field size to be extended.

 

frats,

Rosco

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.

 

I'll also put the list in post 1.

Stubbo, I won't be able to finish my #9 Lotus 32B in time so I'll be sending my VRAA Lotus 21 #28 in its place. The number seems to be available so please make the change.

Bugger...

For some reason I though I was on the reserves list...

 

I'd better get my arse into gear...

Chassis is mostly built. Wheels / Inserts are sorted. Body is a pre-painted scaley one, so I get off light there.

Just need solder on body mounts, limit guide travel, fit suspension details, oh, and pick a new number...

 

PS. My car is a Cooper Climax T53, and I'm from ACT...

PPS. Is "00" a suitable number? If not, can I use 100?
