Hi all.

The second Wellington1/32 RTR Magnet meeting was held at the weekend - venue Papakowhai Primary School. The event being run on a 4 lane Ninco plastic track.

A small but keen group raced with entries from Porirua, The Hutt, Wellington Central, Nelson, Hawera and New Plymouth.

Classes run were:
  • Scalextric/Pioneer Muscle Car - tyres and braid only modification allowed.
  • Modified GT - Tyres, braids and up to 25000rpm motor allowed.
  • British Touring Cars (BTCC) - tyres and braid only modification allowed.
  • Open Le Mans - anything goes as long as it ran at Le Mans.
  • Rally - Ninco rally track with cars supplied.
Honours were reasonably well spread around with Scott Waite of Upper Hutt winning GT and Le Mans; Nigel Lucas of Wellington Central Muscle Car; Charles Le Breton of New Plymouth BTCC and Tony Cook of Nelson the rally class.

Overall honours went to Scott Waite with John Plowman of Wellington second (after several very good placings) and Charles Le Breton and Phil Mobberly from Taranaki 3rd and 4th.

A well run event. A big thanks to Mike Dixon, Rob Braddock and Nigel Lucas for once again organising this great event.

I will try to provide some photos.

Regards Charles Le Breton (charlesx)
