Hi Aquakiwi.

 

Sorry to hear that. Enjoy our Kiwi banter. Hope all is OK with you otherwise. Starting to look like I may be the only Kiwi although I am still hoping Branco will make it

Thanks for that Aquakiwi. Pity as based on the past performance of your car you may have been a major contender for Top Dog.

 

Looking like it may be the last year for Scaly Group B's but it will be interesting to see how the test cars go.

May be a smaller field but looking forward to seeing some action on the rally circuits , rally seems to be in the doldrums in slot cars now with hardly anything new for sometime.

With no round/s in NZ this series, if Aquakiwi and Branco could get their cars here by the last week in May, they would catch the second round and possibly the first.

We are still waiting on 2 - 3 cars in transit which are taking longer than usual. Mail seems to have been very slow from over seas this year :angry:

With the first two rounds in Sydney we may need to massage the start dates a little without affecting the overall schedule.

 

We do not normally do this before the event but due to the delays I will run a "reccy" round on my track with the cars we have later this week. The rally section of my track set up hasn't seen a car for 6 months or so. So the braid needs a bit of a polish

I agree Keith,

Next year if the WRP goes ahead, the series will need a complete makeover.

That in mind "Ember" commented early in the SCX series, that the success of the entries and available tracks was greatly due to affordable car prices and very little work needed on tuning a car.

Car and postage prices have increased since those days. And sadly many of the available tracks have fallen by the way side since the early days.

Have a few ideas Mel based around the now defunct OZ rally series , guessing quite a few people have cars in their boxes from that era , and still possible to buy the same cars under the Scaleauto banner, and there are still cars available under the MSC heading as well as Scalextric and Avant noticed Pendall's still have stock of all of them, and we can still run the old SCX cars in it at the same time.

Also liked the cars being inline and the 2 classes in the OZ the classic class and the more modern class, but that's for a chat i expect at the end of the current series. :)

Keith The Oz Rally is not defunct,just in extended recess!

We=have lost most of the host tracks that were involved.

It is really only us and Sydney now still involved in Proxy Rally Racing.

With smaller fields and less tracks maybe a combined series of some sort.

Update after Post office visit yesterday

 

Had my fingers crossed - but No cars arrived yesterday

The scheduled 1st round will commence this month, with or without missing entries

We now have 4 tracks in Sydney so there will be very little delay between the 1st 3 (or 4) rounds.

With no round in NZ this series :wacko: , cars will then head of to Hobart before jetting off to Scotland.

Hope it didn't get Brex'd at the border.

Mail from the UK is usually about 7 working days so should be here this week along with 4 others ;)

Splitrim's Lancia turned up yesterday.

Snurfens RS200 arrived today wrapped in a Kylie Minogue pink bubble wrap. The barcode on the box wouldn't scan. The guy serving me said it is probably not passing the Breathalyzer test. I said" your probably spot on" :P;):lol: :lol:

Assuming you mean "UK entries"...

I asked to be identified as UK/GB but it has not been corrected yet.

Edit - just noticed that the UK/GB flag/jack above is wrong, its missing the Northern Ireland bit - treason !!

Absolutely not!

If you're using, the Saltire and Snurfs using the Dragon, maybe we should be using the cross of St George. ........

Hi Ontheflipside. Do we have a date for first round yet please. Thought it was supposed to be by end of May. It is fine to wait for latecomers but we need to be fair to those that met deadline.

 

Looking forward to racing, photos and commentary.
