Central Coast/hunter 1/32 Racing

Recommended Posts

Racing at Robs last night,our first meet for 2013.


Good turnout with a welcome return for Mitch and debut night for Scott,good to see you back again Mitch,you have been missed,hope you enjoyed your first nights racing with us Scott,that certainly appeared to be the case witnh good showings with your new Merc and encouraging runs from your F1 car and the MRRC Porsche.


Just a bit of house keeping to get through before I get to the race results.


We have introduced a new class for 2013, that being Classis pre 1970(incl) Sports,we introduced this updated class to allow us to use a more modern looking sports car and to give you more options when putting together the car for the years bracing,


We should have mentioned that SlotIt and NSR cars will not be permitted,it would be contrary to the spirit of the class, we didn't see much value in seeing a field full of SlotIt GT40's belting each other up,if you have any queeries regarding which car to use and need some clarification,talk to me or Steve.


Sports Sedans can now be run with anglewinder or sidewinder plus the inline set ups,still same $6 motor.


This should be interesting to see the time comparisms between the "old" and "new" setups.

Thanks to all the boys last night, it was great meeting all of you and with in no time I felt a part of the "boys club" As Terry says, good racing, good catchup, fantastic flow of BS and taking the P***. Especially taking the p*** out of Steve!... . For me it was an awesome introduction to the club, I thoroughly enjoyed every bit!


And... I WON, I've not won anything for years!.. I came first last!... WooHoo... what was the prize for that again?


Big thank you to Rob for hosting the night at his beautiful home (in the middle of nowhere!)...


Thanks Terry for the drive down and our in depth "meaning of life" conversations!.. Sorry I phased out on the trip home, a junior driver needs his beauty sleep ya know!.

I have some photos to post, I just need to go refresh my memory how to post photos to the forum again!... Facebook is so much easier...lol

If anyone can explain why I can't rotate the first image correctly. I use photo bucket. I had rotated the image on my PC prior to uploading to photo bucket. It displays correctly in my photo bucket library but here, it's on it's side... Hmmmm

G'day Zero, our meets are on a Saturday night and usually every three weeks. We race at three tracks which are all located on the Central Coast. Terry and myself car pool and the drive usually takes us a bit over an hour. We're both from the Port Stephens area. Where do you live Zero?...

I'm a bit new to the group myself and this Saturday is my second meeting. I'm catching up with Terry tomorrow so I'll pass on your message to him, unless of course he see's this first!..


Cheers mate,

Racing this Satuday early evening - I'll be making an appearance (shock horror) - I've been busy acquiring a few cars...... for the event.




Chuffed that the tyres turned up today so a bit of gluing and truing to occur in the next day or so.............. might need to fix the JGTC as the body was binding after my last poor driving effort at SWSG.

Hey Mark...can you bring along your tasman car?


I'll have 2 or 3 to bring and I'd like the opportunity to have a closer look at what you've done.

Its been a funny period for our little group,we've had people away for holidays,weddings,bunged up knees,family issues and sickness,and some rather violent weather,preventing some from venturing out into the great unknown,but last night hardy souls (well 4 of us) ventured down into the Jilliby hinterland (and hippy haven) for our regular slot fix,racing was at Robs,back onto the Classic Scaley track and its challenging layout.


Should be mentioned before I get into the results that Rob has the high distinction of having ,what must be,the only fully functional working version of Startline in captivity,certainly worth the trip to witness this rather rare and hard to find artifact.


So,onto the nights racing.


Welcome to Mark(miveson),hope you enjoyed the nights racing,I don't think it will be long before you will be banging doors with the rest of us Mark,if last night was any indication,good to have you along.
