  • GT-SRC: Greater Toronto Slotcar Racing Club Porsche Race Series

    There is a new slot car racing club in the Toronto area: The Greater Toronto - Slot Racing Club. Our goal is to provide affordable, competitive, and fair racing in a club environment. We'll be running a weekly series at Raceworld with a draw prize every race night, and trophies and other prizes awarded at the end of each season. Charter GT-SRC members include Grant Richardson (Treasurer), Sean McQuade (Communications), Franco DeVuono, Rory Wood, and Serge Tourikian.

    There will be a club fee of $20 per series paid to GT-SRC Treasurer ( 8,10 or 12 races per series - still to be determined by racers' input). This fee will cover the Prizes / Trophies awarded at the end of each series. Each club member will receive a 'Dash Plaquet' for participating complete with our Club name - Series - Year etc. The first, second and third place will recieve trophies with Our Club name, Series, Year etc. Any monies left over could be put towards other prizes to be drawn at the end of the series.

    Race Fee - $10 per race. $5 dollars from each entrance fee will be paid out in 'Race Bucks'. We will have a random draw 'out of a hat' at the end of each race to determine the winners.

    Spec Car - The GTSRC has chosen 'Stock' 956 / 962 Porsche as the spec car for our first series (including the 956K high tail 'Jagermeister'). All tech will be done and enforced by GT-SRC. Cars that do not pass tech will be disqualified and receive no points for the series. The car's entrant will not be eligible to participate in the draw for 'Racebucks'.

        Amendment to the Rules

        (956C ‘High Tail’ are now allowed).

        There is a shortage of 956 / 962 Slot it Porsches within our local area, there fore we will allow the "Slot-it SICA09a High-tail Porsche 956C Jagermeister"

        (Pinion and Crown Gear Update)

        • Slot it 9 tooth bronze pinion - Slot it 28 tooth Yellow Crown gear – bronze only. teflon and aluminum not allowed. This rule has been implemented to reflect the 'Spec Car" rules.
        ( Tires)
        • 15x8 Slot it aluminum rear wheels (ortman tires).

          Why only Ortman tires?

            Hi Dan!
            Hope all is well at Ace Hobby in Niagara Falls NY!!
            Please tell Ron i said Hi!
            Back to your question:

            The majority of guys in our area already have Ortmans from various home and RaceWorld series. In addition there is a supply of local Ortman tires.

            This will allow any new racers to have the chance to have the same traction as our more seasoned racers and still follow our spec class.
