Way2Fast Bathurst 100Km

Recommended Posts

On the back of the successful SlotWorx enduro, this is a quick place holder post for our next big event...

Rules have yet to be finalised, but it will most likely be 1/32 Classic Bathurst 1000 cars...

 

The 100km (3680 Laps / 460 per lane) should be reached well under 8 hours.

The SlotWorx 4hour Enduro reached ~70km.

 

The event will be run 2 weeks before Bathurst, on September the 16th.

 

 

 

More details and rules to follow soon...

And a short video of the race.

 

 

We had a good race with the XC. The first 8 heats we were off the pace, losing 45 laps on 1st place but we finally got some grip and only lost 11 laps over the last 8 heats for 2nd place.

 

Roll on next year!
