    The 1/32nd Carrera Canadian Nationals

    Hi Guys,

    Here it is, the Annual Carrera Canadian National Races.

    The Rules

    Any 1/32nd Scale Carrera GT Car. Any of the cars from the DTM, FIA GT, or Group 5 are eligible. The basic idea is that it be a GT Car with doors, Big wheels, and a Big GT wing. If you are unsure of your cars eligibility please ask me.

    Chassis

    The Stock chassis unmodified in any way except to accommodate body float. If you are unsure of your "modification" please ask me first before making your chassis ineligible for the race.

    You can use ONLY the parts that came in the box. Slotting Plus Body Screws (SP159903) are Allowed. You can "shoulder" the stock body screws to accommodate for body float. A Drill and a Dremel with a cutoff wheel works well for this.

    Parts Wise, If it didn't come with your car, YOU CAN NOT USE IT. Period.

    Lead Weight is Allowed - All lead must be inside the car - i.e. not stuck to the bottom of the chassis

    Body

    The Stock body must be used. No modifications are allowed except to accommodate body float.

    Wheels/Tires

    The stock axle assembly must be used, for both front and rear axles. I will true the front tires on everyones cars on the PM tire truer.

    Rear tires will be Silicone Super Tires. This is the ONLY aftermarket part we will be allowing.

    Motor

    The Stock motor is the Only acceptable motor. You are allowed to remove the reversing chip and plug the guide directly into the motor. The connector must be used. You can also remove all the capacitors on the motor.....although it makes no performance difference.

    Race Date

    Sunday Feb 18, 2108 - Track opens at 11am. The Green Flag drops at 1pm.

    The Format

    We will be racing 6 minute heats running the South Loop.

    Race Fee

    FREE FREE FREE (Bring a few bucks so we can order pizza)


    That's it guys. Build em up. If you have any questions please ask here. If you need a car come see me or any of the fine Slot Car retailers in the GTA. Both Minigrid (Downsview) and Panther Hobbies have GREAT selections of cars.......as well as Race Haven of course.

    Hi Guys,

    As anticipated, this is the full result from last weekends The 3rd Annual Carrera Canadian Nationals Race. We had 9 racers out to run for the Win. With last years Champ out with the Flu we were destined to Crown a new Champ for this year. Here is how it all went down........

    3rd Annual Carrera Canadian Nationals

    Gabriel - 263 10' (Aston Martin GT3)
    Glen - 257 20' (Corvette C5R)
    JCB - 253 57' (BMW DTM)
    Dave - 249 43' (BMW DTM)
    Joe Guts - 246 50' (Audi A5 DTM)
    Marius - 242 5' (BMW DTM)
    Ravi - 234 24' (Mercedes DTM)
    John B - 233 60' (Audi R8 GT)
    Sal - 230 58' (Porsche 997 GT3)

    Fast Laps

    Gabriel - 6.466 (P)
    Glen - 6.693 (W)
    JCB - 6.735 (W)
    Dave - 6.941 (W)
    Joe - 6.977 (B)
    Marius - 6.919 (P)
    Ravi - 7.233 (R)
    John B - 7.201 (R)
    Sal - 7.247 (B)

    Well Done Gabriel! He put over 2 laps on last years total and smashed the lap time record!!! What a Drive!

    Glen blew the dust of his antique Corvette and ended up in second place!!! A amazing result given how little effort he put into it.

    John Basset rounded out the podium with a much better result than last year. Well done Johnny!

    Although turnout was down slightly from last year the racing was as fierce as ever. Thanks to everyone that came out.

    The Scalextric Canadian Nationals are about 3 weeks away. Sunday March 18, 2018. Mark the date, this is the biggest race we throw all year. Don't miss it!

    See you all next weekend for the 1/24th Scale Street Car Nats. The VW bus is ready to go!

    What can I say?.........my Audi RS5 was on fire. Well prepped and tested she was bound to be a winner.

    Gabriel did not at any point let up though. A couple too many crashes or else it would have been a lot closer. A fine drive Gabe.

    Dave rounding out the podium in a tremendous result considering he developed a new car. Both Gabe and I ran last years rig.......

    Top to bottom the grid was the most impressive one I have seen at our facility so far. I can say without a doubt that fun was had by all and I hope we see everyone back out when we run the Nationals again.

    Thanks to everyone that came out. I think I remembered everyones rides.....please chime in if I got it wrong.

    Hopefully I can get the Scaley Nats up after dinner........

    To heck with waiting until 2018. This should be a quarterly event. Let's have a summer solstice race!

    Lots of fun Ron, great day. With a little luck my Carrera's will be better than mid-pack next time.

    After testing all morning I got a 6.571 out of the RHH Audi RS5 on White! I really think the trick to this class is a FULLY broken in motor, and Fully broken in (flat face) tires.

    Raceday is one week away Gents. We will be testing Friday night and Saturday afternoon next weekend with track direction changes every hour or so.

    If you want to Win you're gonna have to test and tune Gents. I hope to see everyone out Friday night for some valuable track time before the big event.
