Re: How to Resurrect Aussie Retro at HSC?

Hi Daryl, Thanks for your thoughts. Not sure about handicaps and I think that I could be going as fast as I can and still not breakout! Overall, I will go along with majority, as I would rather race than not. I am probably more interested in knowing why people have stopped coming to racing, as we co...

Hi gang We all have commitments ……… Grandkids, (my issue on the long weekend) ageing parents, kids, wives and holidays We all have lives outside of slot cars and a hobby is low on the priority list no matter what the hobby is. Not just the Geoghegan and last weekend, attendances have been very poor ...

Re: HSC 2019 Retro Series Rnd 5 - STR 08/06/2019

Very sad Daryl and Stoo. Personally with moving house and family commitments out of the way, I should be a starter next time. The attendances have been poor for the YTD - whats the answer? Not rule changes, simple, strong and fast for the last 10 years. There must be heaps of cars in the bottom of p...

Re: Race Report - SRC 2019 Round 2 - HSC

Hi Guys,
Can somebody send me a reminder next time. I forgot all about the race !!
Then I moved house on the Geoghegan and now I have a family commitment this weekend. I will have withdrawals soon.
Sounds like it was a cracker race meeting.
Thanks for putting up the report Mark.

Re: Driver Rankings

Yes thanks to Cooper and Allan, both did a great job. You are correct Fox no seeding needed with only 5. 2 and 3 would have been horrible. A plus is getting home early to watch Peaky Blinders on Netflix with Marion. ( and a couple of nice glasses of wine)

Re: Driver Rankings

Hi Wayne If you are referring to what heat you race in and first lane choice? It goes on the position you are holding in the club championship if you win the first race of the year, you are in the ‘A’ race, with first choice of lane in the next race.if you continue to accrue enough points to stay in...

Re: Approved Bodies List for 2019

Don't ban TI's - I just finished painting 3 of them!! Yes, the Hsc bodies list could do with an update. But the point is that most of the bodies showing are not available. Thats why a lot of racers are running bodies not actually on the list. In a perfect world the list would be up to date ………. Buy ...
