Hi, The Tasman Cup 2018 cars should arrive FPR early this week for round 6.
Lenny is effecting some repairs to some cars so they should be almost ready to run when they arrive, .
I will give them a test run soon after they arrive. Not sure when qualifying will occur yet but should be about Wednesday 13th of June . Round 6 should occur on Saturday afternoon on the 16th.
The judging of the Constructors award will be performed as well.
I will post the circuit details soon but nothing much has changed from 2017.
Looking forward to a good day of racing next Saturday and good luck to the competitors .
Cheers, John

Thanks for the update John.
What's the track length and surface finish? Another nice looking track BTW
I looked in the Home tracks threads and other threads but could not find any information on Fulham
cheers

Hi. Lenny dropped the cars off this afternoon. He had rectified the cars with problems. They all went to their ownstandard in testing . Below are the reports on the testing.
There was variation in the amount of tyre grip on the cars . Some tyres had feathering on the surface. The grip may improve with use on some with the smooth FPR surface and lower speeds on the smaller FPR track
Certainly a higher standard for most cars than last year but some have lost a bit . The detail on many of the cars is really good this year.
So the constructors judging will be interesting . I should be able to do the qualifying tomorrow so stay tuned.
I added some columns to the Test drive table as a way to compare cars
Until tomorrow cheers

Thanks for the good start John. Hope your health is being kind. See I am about mid-field so here is hoping car can carry this through to qualifying and race.

About time I spent some more time on my Tasman cars though as all have fallen well behind.

Happy memories of my time in Adelaide a couple of years ago. One of these days I will finish those other cars.

Regards from NZ Charles Le Breton (charlesx)

Good we met in Adelaide Charles and thanks again for the work you did re the formulation of our Formula 1 championships.We have the championship running this Friday . That will tune in the drivers for the Round 6 the next day. Hope you are in good health. I am up for another op in July so 8 weeks recovery after that but feel good otherwise.
Your car does show promise on FPR so hopefully it will hold the position in qualifying. Will be good to see some of your updated cars when you get the chance to complete them.
Cheers Charles

So Qualifying done. Stu's car certainly is a step above the rest of the field on FPR . It is very quick but may catch a few drivers out entering the corners too fast. When the flag drops all will be revealed.
So the cars have to wait now until Saturday afternoon. Cheers, John

The performance of my car is becoming embarrassing and it seems to be largely down to the tyres. I did include a spare set of wheels and tyres when I gave the car to Alan. Would it be possible to try them on the Ferrari please? I'm not bothered about taking a penalty, its not as though its going to make a difference to my overall position in the championship!

Best Regards

David

All done - the Round 6 of the Tasman Cup Proxy Race 2018 at Fulham Park Raceway. Congratulations to sdeamon for a fine win and taking out round 5 as well. Very close behind was Slo1quick in 2nd followed very closely
by John Batich. Terry followed in fourth . The final placings again came down to a few de-slots making the difference. Judging by the drivers comments the top 3 cars were very stable and easier to drive.
This I think is probably the most important feature for the car to have - maybe more than just being able to pull a very quick lap .

A very big thanks to the drivers , marshalls & the good ladies who provided lunch & afternoon tea - thanks Marilyn and Sue.
Thanks to the Tasmanians for sending over some cool weather - 6.9 degrees as we finished the day.
Thanks to Stubbo for organising the Proxy and allocating FPR this round.
I will prepare the results of the motor test cars tomorrow

I think Lenny was surprised - He has been awarded the FPR Constructors trophy for 2018
Nice , neat & well designed chassis and suspension detail - and a very nice detail on the body of car.

Now the motor test car results
Car #26 - Lotus 24 . FPR 7 - 2015 in the Tasman Cup - fitted with a SRP 18k ff motor - total laps 108.098 fastest lap 6.226
Car #16 - Elfin Mono FPR 7 - 2017 in the Tasman Cup - fitted with a SRP 18k ff motor - total laps 107.001 fastest lap 6.462
Car # 4 - Cooper T62 Lenny Broke - 2017 in the Tasman Cup - fitted with a Chinese ?k ff motor - total laps 106.769 fastest lap 6.256 - Phil Kalbfell supplied the motor
Car #26 - Lotus 24 BRM Max Newcombe - 2017 in the Tasman Cup - fitted with a SRP 16k ff motor - total laps 104.140 fastest lap 6.226

The drivers report very little difference between all 4 cars as far as speed goes . would be happy to see any of the 3 motors in the 2019 Tasman Cup
It seems none were as quick as the top cars this year - maybe the chassis & handling is better on this years cars
The would fit in to between 5 th and 13th place in this years round 6 results.

Congrats sdeamon on your win, a very good car on the faster and slower tracks. It certainly has some go, the Mjk's working well too, an interesting choice. Well done!
Pretty chuffed with 2nd. Congrats to John B too and Terry not too far away.

Thanks John on a very well run round, no messing around, lots of good feedback and thoughts and all done and dusted very quickly. And thanks to the Drivers and Marshals and Ladies too, top Job!

What gearing did the the 18k spec motors run John?
