Please remember that this is not an Auslot Proxy and as such we do not have a say in how it is run. The forum is mearly a means of getting out the word.

 

It appears proxy racing is becoming too big in Australia for the track owners to host it effectively.

Wouldn't worry me if I had to run it over two days/nights - more the merrier.

 

What I did find time consuming on my track were the cars at the bottom end of the field slow and difficult to drive and after an hour or two wondered what I was doing when points meant nothing other than avoiding the wooden spoon. Not that I backed off as I probably tried harder to make them perform.

 

Could we have a larger number of cars but make a cut at the end of one of the earlier rounds. Or a qualifying round on one of the tracks that was deemed a average circuit.

 

Just food for though to give everyone a chance.

Which is a good problem to have, I think.

Hey guys I'm in with last years Pug but with a few mods . But have just seen the Ninco Citroen of Loebs ,hoping it will be here before the proxy starts as I may swap camps. At this stage my track is now under way with track figured out and 80% of routing done. As far as the field goes I cant see us getting a massive field ,last years amount was good . A few more wont hurt, but if your looking at cutting the field lets remember that there was an overseas runner last year and hope to get an overseas contingent (hope spellins rite) again . Lets get proper numbers and take it from there.I'm not worried how long it takes to figure the amount of cars to be run as it will give me more time to finish my track :rolleyes: .

Judging by the lack of entries and confusion to some people or eagerness to be involved...... I'm going to scrap the 30 car limit, if you want to enter, then enter.

 

BUT if we get closer to 40 than 30, then there will be some a couple of options investigated as to what to do as 40 cars is too many for most people who run rounds to be able to handle. (Myself included)

 

I'll keep those options close to the chest for now but if your in, then put your name down on this thread !

 

Gazza's post no 37 has the correct list. Thanks to Gazza and OTFS for your input, you rally nerds !

Gday BMR,

 

doesn't that sort of take the fun out of it? Just entering in last years car? Not having a go mind you, just asking a question!

Yes I know its a bit slack of me to run the same car again but unfortunately my time is delegated fairly thin and building slotcars has taken a back seat to other commitments in life , however there is plenty of time left before the start of the 2009 series so a new car from BMR could find its way into the feild still .

Saying that , the green machine came forth in the end last year and it did suffer a crown gear problem so with a better crown gear on it I hope it may do better or at least run the same as before and do ok in the 2009 finishing order.

We have 28 entries, anyone else interested, speak up !!!

 

I'll kick it off Hmscat in mid Nov so if your ready to go for late Nov that would be great.

 

Then off to Sydney, Tassie and back to the mainland.

Bring it on.

 

Picked up the material today, routing on Sat, to start a new rally track in SA "Limestone Pass", portable track, joint venture between Hoffy and myself . Will definitely be ready for SA rounds in Jan 09.

 

We ( Hoffy or myself ) will post progress pics of the construction in a separate topic.
