    Date: February 24, 2018

    number of cars per entrant: max. 3
    The track: app. 78ft. 3 lane wood track, latex paint, copper tape for the rails - magnets have no effect
    the race: race will be run in lane 1 and 3, 25 laps practice, 25 laps race, the slowest 5 times will be deleted
    the power supply: each lane has a seperate adjustable powersupply, 1.25 to 19V @ 3 Amp available
    the timing: IR light bridge and laptimer 2000
    the controllers: available controllers: 90/75/60 ohm parma eco, 45/35/25 Parma eco, 25/18/13 parma eco, 15/11/8 parma eco, i will choose the controller where the car is driveable as its best during the practice laps.
    entry fee: 15 Euro (is used for return shipping of car)

    1) car must be approximately 1/43rd
    2) max. width 50.8mm
    3) no fluid may leak out, no grease, oil or braid juice may pollute the track, no tire glue or similar
    4) teams may ask for a special voltage where the car should be run.
    the standard racing voltage depends on the motor. I will run all cars @ 12V, SCX and Carrera motors @15V, G9330 & [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]
    5) car must have a body that looks like a car, race look prefered, but not necessary

    9) cars must run 20 qualitfication laps on lane 1 prior to the race. Cars must get a fastest lap in this heat under 13 seconds to qualify for the race. Please don´t worry about this rules, stock SCX or Kyosho cars can do it easily. Only the fastest 20 cars from the qualifying will run the race. qualifying times will be posted with the race times.

    concours de elegance: the best looking car will be voted by the host and get a special price.

    wide open rules again, ladies and gentleman, so build your fastest, smoothest 1/43rd car for this race. just tune your stock SCX car a little and maybe blow the doors off all others, built something that was not seen before, it´s up to you.
    Who will have the fastest car?

    list of prizes by now:

    have fun, Peter

      The BARC Team arrived some time ago already, the first on the track for the race!
      Nice lineup, forward to see how they will run!

      The PRT decided on the entries for this race, as it became clear that no new car will be ready for the race. The 962 is quite an old car, which already ran in some races. But it is still very, very fast. Will have to check gear clearance, it seems to have a little too much side-to-side-play in the rear axles.
      The Mini JCW should have run last year, but wasnt finished in time. So it will run this year. Looking forward to see the lights around the track.
      And last but not least the remotored Exige which already ran in a ProNoMag. New tires and new motor, a mild one this time. Maybe will change to clear glass windows before the race if i can finish it.

      So, whose car will be next on the track?

              Is there a website where you post updates, track info, and such? I am new to 1/43 and slot cars modding in general. Don't think I can have a car ready for this race, but will definitely be ready for the next one!

              Also, are open wheel cars (f1) allowed? Presume so as the rules don't indicate tires need to be covered.
