It is really tight in the competition that really matters - who is the top UK entrant. For a few glorious moments while reading the standings after Round 3 I was out on my own and then I scrolled down to the table including Round 4 and it turned into a three way tie on 44.

 

Is there a track out there that JAMC's car doesn't excel on....?

Chuckle Big C well i for a while was always the top UK runner mainly down to the skill of being the only UK runner, and the Aussies are good at this note top 5 are from down under, in the last year of the SCX WRP Snurfen ( wales ) and myself managed to win the top 2 spots but then they changed the series to Scaley cars ( shhhh don't let them here this ) but i suspect it was because they got beaten by a pair of poms :ph34r::o:D

You two are only above me because of a hiccup with my car in round 3, otherwise I'd be top brit!

Anyway when they get back to Europe, we'll take off the square wheels the antipodians have put on the UK cars and we'll soon see who's on top .

Quick stop talking about them before they wake up.

Onward and upward

To late , I'm an early riser here in OZ , so caught you out .

You guys can't be like that because if your government didn't let that Cook bloke go on a world cruise and decide to holiday here , then go back home and tell the rest of your mob , this place still would be back in the dark ages and slot cars would have only just been started , so this proxy truly would have been yours to conquer.

God Save The Queen because nothing will save the bloke who discovered us . That saying was made famous here in the 70's by a politician but I changed the last bit :P:D .

Oh and by the way , the cars are now off to that other holiday resort place , New Zealand , another that Cook bloke holidayed at after he found the natives restless here :lol: , Good Luck.........

Cheers Craig

P.s. The Kiwi's may eat you alive, figuratively speaking ;):rolleyes::D

Sir Albert Slothaven is memory serves me right was on the Cook tours of the world , ( his relative Thomas Cook ) now runs the business, and Sir Albert bought many wondrous things to the new colony amongst which was the first slot car , it was made of wood and beetle powered a ingenious device was installed at the front with a hook on it which contained a grub and this V60 ( 6 beetled ) machine was very fast they had to make a slot for it to run in as this V60 machine didn't handle that well as the beetles chased the grub round the track and having a slot and a guide on the car kept it straight.

All was fine until a local Aussie lad called Garrius decided to make 4 slots which was great until the leading car came up to lap the last place car and the beetles on overtaking it though hold on a minute cobbers there's a grub on the left hand side so that was the first slot car collision as they veered left to eat it , the moral off this story is, we come down south with brilliant ideas but you lot try to improve them , and beat us at our own game. :o

Hi Peter and all

 

Not sure what you are going on about as both Aussie and Kiwiland were discovered well before your Pommy Captain Cook came along. Ask any Maori. Even the Chinese and others plus Abel Tasman had made a call before him and the hundreds of whalers and explorers who came before your lot and decided to stay had some say in the matter.

 

Aussie was well populated with your cast offs. Currently reading the book 1788 about the Aussie First Fleet. What a hardy bunch those first Aussies must have been no matter what side of the fence they were on. The same goes for all the early families or made the trip to the promised land (even if it took them a while to knock it into the shape now called Godzone). Your ever so come lately Johnnies are apparently still trying to catch up. Could all be different when we get to Europe and the UK though. Who is to know what the new Kiwiland venture will bring.

 

Back to slot cars - the only reason there are Aussies at the top is because if Aquakiwi was there the Aussies would just claim he was one of their own.

 

As for the grand kids well youth does give them an advantage or is it just beginners luck. Perhaps you guys should try bowling under arm.

 

Enough for the frivolities. Best of luck to all for the rest of the proxy.

 

Regards Chas Le Breton (charlesx). Part Aussie cast off.

Hi Ontheflipside/Mel.

 

No doubt about the top car. Streets ahead. The top 4 in fact are well clear but there is a long way to go yet.

 

Good to see all Kiwi cars still in the top 10 but think Aquakiwi and Branco need shifting up a bit. Snurfen and BigC are also a little out of place.

 

Great to see all car models also feature in the top 10.

 

Regards Chas Le Breton

Hi Alexis, I think Leo has my round as round six. There was a bit of confusion on my part as to what my rounds number actually was.

 

The round five results in the chart above are from Mark Millings' round in Westport. I dont see the results from my round added in yet.

 

I guess my round was round six.

Hey Alexis.

Munters round is actually Round 6. Does that make sense?

 

Hey John,

I hope to add your data and points sheets tomorrow.
