Re: Stay safe

Thanks Guys After being very busy with my new job and not having much time to race, I find myself with lots of time and nowhere to race. Painted bodies, glued and trued tyres and rebuilt motors. I must be the only one who likes to build motors. Looking forward to racing again when all this is over. ...

Re: Looks Like HSC is Almost Done

Very sad.
It’s been part of my life since I went to school just down the road from the centre.
I hope he last Australia Day Classic is a big one.

Re: HSC 2019 Retro Series Rnd 9 - STR 05/10/2019

Hi guys,
Thanks for your thoughts (and your report) Stoo
Just a combination of changes in job, a bit of illness and Marion's busy schedule has been responsible for my recent lack of attendance lately.
I should be back on track (literally) at Luddenham.

Re: 3rd Four Hour Enduro - 2019 @ HSC

Hi Fox, Thanks for the report. It is a shame that racing has been so poorly attended recently. I have been guilty of no shows myself and was very keen on getting some longer races. So ……..if some one wants to race with a cranky slow driver, I am up for a run at SSME. Don't break up FASTUFF ……… me an...

Vale Toby Lee

Hi everyone. I just had a call from Tracey lee, to tell me that unfortunately her father Toby Lee has past away last Friday after battling a brain tumour. In typical Toby fashion he was told more than 2 years ago that he had only 5 months to live. He was one of the toughest racers I ever competed ag...

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)
