    Group 5 Proxy 2019 Edition - Registration

    On the eve of round 8 in the 2018 series it is time to open registration for the 2019 series. As before the event will be limited to 24 cars. Previous champions of this series, as well as the top 16 of the current year, will have a guaranteed entry. If more than 24 cars are entered and received, then there will be a pre-qualification event to decide which cars make it into the field proper. Cars that are declined a space in the series due to it being full, will get a full refund of their entry fee - less the cost of return shipping. [more details on this process closer to the time - if needed]

    The rules (attached below) will remain unchanged for the 2019 season. I have noticed that there might be some new Group 5 releases and those will be added to the eligible list of cars, if & when they become available.

    In broad strokes the rules will be divided into these buckets

    1) List of eligible cars
    a. (let me know if there are other cars that have been released and should be eligible.)
    2) Scale Compliance (body, wheels, driver figure etc.)
    3) Performance Category (motor, tyres, etc.)
    4) Racing / Host Category

    Entry fee will increase slightly to $26 USD – I will also provide an US address for entrants shipping from South of the border. There will be an additional $6 fee if you make use of this address, but at least it will reduce shipping cost to Canada and it will also reduce the mailing time. (the reason for the additional $6 charge is due to the fee I pay the shipping receiver for picking up the package)

    Racing will be 10 events with the best 9 to count.

    Payment deadline is July 27th and the entry fee is $26 USD. Car deadline for entries to be in Chilliwack BC (or at the US address) is October 31st, .

    CANADIAN ADDRESS: (PM me for USA address + $6)

    Please take moment to read the below.

    The specific rubber tyres makes have been removed, as it is impossible to tell what make of tyre is being used (unless it says on the sidewall e.g. NSR) all rubber tyres that are commercially available are allowed. since NSR has recently released some red/orange tyres I am adding - PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL TYRES MUST BE BLACK

    Rims need to look somewhat period correct, "deep dish" style wheels were "in" during this time, if you are unsure, paint the wheels and/or ask.

    I have tried to clarify the use of penalty points, and when repairs are allowed. I have also added that cars cannot be upgraded/changed (for improved performance) during the series.

    Please post your interest to enter this event below.

    Field is limited to 24 cars, top 16 and past series Champions are guaranteed a spot in the field, if there are more than 24 paid and received entries, then all those that were not in the top 16 from the previous series will take part in a pre-qualification event to determine the 24 cars that will race in the event.

    Looking forward to having you in the series!

            I will be back with the #53. This means it will have to race it's way into the field. Well maybe not. We only had 21 cars this year. Looks like a motor change coming when it gets back.

              I wouldn’t mind having another crack if you’ll have me. Will run a commercially available Plafit chassis 3300 this time, a really nice chassis that should be a good runner. Will hopefully have another local (and multiple oz champ) keen to enter as well.

              Now was my race number 5, 51 or 20

                        And I would like to throw my hat in the ring again as well please Chris. I have been thinking about doing something slightly different this time...

                          Fantastic to see the interest, thank you for the support.

                          Bring your best weapon, buy it, build it, steal it....but make sure it is fast, easy to drive, reliable and consistent.... easier said than done.

                          Returning drivers get first dibs at keeping their number, number 1 is reserved for the current champion.

                            I will try again, if I can figure what has gone wrong with this years car!

                            Now, if I can only find a Plafit 3300 chassis?

                              Bring the fastest car you can build or buy, and tune it to the best of your abilities, we love a challenge! I will not make the same mistake of adding the yellow "go-faster" stripe next time, you will be on your own....

                              I would suggest you use all 3 numbers....that means 15 penalty points....some of us might need the head-start

                              IF you win, number 1 is yours, if not, then returning drivers have first rights at using their current number, or any number that is not spoken for.
