Thanks, so with an hour to go, it looks like the only entrant from last year that is unaccounted for is Sacesta.

It is still possible that Sacesta might make the deadline, but unlikely. If he does then it will change the below, but if not then here is what we have:

17 cars from last year has paid prior to the deadline and they are therefore in the series. That leaves us with 7 spots to fill the 24 car field

We have the following ten cars with Sacesta being one, on the waiting list:


1) 34ever1
2) Noisymuse
3) MRollingthunder
4) SlotracingHawaii #51 paid
5) Camber paid
6) JSCOT111
7) low tech
8) Sports Racer
9) Lancelotalove paid
10) Sacesta

I now ask that those from the above list please show their intention to send a car by making the entry fee payment of $25 USD or if using my Sumas WA address $30 USD.

I will set the deadline for payment for these entries at July 15th. If more than 7 cars from the above group make this payment deadline, then all these cars will go through the pre-qualify process to find the 7 that will race. If 7 or less make the payment deadline, then there will be no need for a pre-qualifying race.

Summary - I am asking that those from the above group that are still interested in joining the series, please make payment prior to midnight (PDT) July 15, 2017.

See post #1 for details

Thanks

Chris

Post #1 updated with payment received and car number.

We are now at 21 paid up entries with a bit more than a week to go for the 2nd deadline of July 15th.

Still no need for a pre-qualifying round, will see what it looks like closer to the deadline.

Now all I have to do is build the car.

Thank you, post #1 updated. We are a week away from the 15th deadline with 22 paid up entrants.

Still no need for a pre-qualifying event

Just remember you are not able to be crowned the Champion of the "fastest proxy in world" unless you enter!

Payment received from jscott111 - we are at 24 cars all paid!

That means unless we have another paid-up entry by midnight tomorrow (PDT) there will be no shoot-out and all these entries will be in the series.

I trust I have been clear on the deadlines and requirements and there will be no surprises once the axe (yes that is the way we spell ax in the Queens English) falls tomorrow.

Your support is sincerely appreciated. I trust you are enjoying your summer (winter for our mates down-under) and that you are working on the fastest proxy car you have EVER built...because unless you bring your A game, you will struggle in the World's Fastest Proxy!!

I grew up spelling it this way as well (axe).

That's not an axed car.

This is an axed car:



Well, ok, technically it's picked but at least the tyres aren't slashed.

Default Eleventh Hour!

Actually 10hr and 40mins but unless something changes within the next 80mins the field is set for the 2018 edition of the Group 5 Proxy Series.

We have 24 entries and a full field for this year's event. Unless one of the below guys make a payment within the next hour and 15mins our field is set and there will be no pre-qualifying race needed.

Thanks again for your support, we look forward to having you in the race.

Post #1 now updated with the paid entries. I will leave the others on the waiting list, if anyone pulls their entry, but if not, then there will be no room for additional cars.

Next year the top 16 will go through with an automatic entry, the rest will have to qualify.....if we get interests from more than 24 builders.

Cheers

Chris

All yours.

Post #1 updated with 2018 rules. No changes, just some fine tuning and clarifications.

Please REVIEW AND READ - ask if you have ANY questions

Just another quick reminder that this proxy series has now reached it's limit of 24 cars, I will keep the others on a waiting list, in the unlikely event that someone withdraws.

Due to us only getting 24 cars paid up by the July 15 deadline, there will be no "shoot-out" or pre-qualifying. If a car withdraws, then I will look at the wait list to see if there is any interest in filling the spot left vacant.

Please take a look at post #1 for version 4 - current rules. There are no changes, just some fine tuning, please review to ensure compliance and no surprises.

Chris
