  • 2021 Touring Car Proxy - open for entries.

    The 2021 Touring Car Proxy is open for entry. The only changes from last year are instead of 12 rounds there will be 10 and it’s limited to 21 entries.

    Entry fee will still be whatever the cost is to ship your car back + a couple of dollars.

    We'll start racing in August with all cars to be posted to me by Monday 19 July 2021.

    At the end of the proxy the top 5 cars will be taken apart to show their insides and pictures taken so everyone can see what makes them tick.

    Here are the rules (same as last year).

    Rule Number One:

    Any modification not specifically detailed below needs to be discussed. Bribes of cash, cake or chocolate are encouraged.

    1. Body

    1.1: Any Injection moulded or resin bodied car from the approved list that is marketed as a 1/32 scale Ready-to-Run (RTR) slot car. No vacuum formed or blow moulded bodies.
    Max width 63mm.

    Cars must be from 1990 or later, no cars from the 80's or earlier.

    Approved List, let me know if I've left a car out.

    Any BTCC car
    Any DTM car
    Alfa 156 GTA
    Alfa 155
    Audi A4 DTM
    Audi A5 DTM
    Audi TT DTM
    BMW 1, 3 or 4 Series
    Fiat Punto
    Ford Focus
    Ford Falcon
    Holden Commodore
    Honda Accord
    Honda Civic Type-R
    Hyundai Accent
    Mercedes C-class DTM
    Mercedes CLK DTM
    Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution
    Opel Astra
    Opel Vectra
    Opel V8 DTM Coupe
    Opel Calibra
    Peugeot 406 Coupe (not Silhouette)
    Renault Clio
    Renault Megane
    SEAT Leon
    Subaru Imprezza WRX
    Volvo S60R
    VW Passat

    1.2: Chassis - No restrictions.

    Body screws should be taped or covered in bluetak to prevent loss. External body parts - mirrors, wipers, wings - though desirable are not required.

    1.3: Guide may not project beyond the body as viewed from directly above. Tracks will all be routed wood with 8 mm deep slots.

    1.4: Cars must have sufficient ground clearance to permit free running without contacting the track. Cars which drag on the track may be excluded at the track owners’ discretion.

    1.5: Clear window material must be used where the real car has clear material.

    1.6: Racing numbers must be visible in three places on body. Racing numbers must match. Bodies may be painted in fantasy or realistic liveries. Non-decorated cars (for example plain white kits) are not allowed. Duplicate numbers are allowed but if everyone enters the red #7 Alfa 155 I’m going to be reaching for the spray can.

    1.7: Headlights and taillights are required but do not have to illuminate.

    1.8: Interior must include, at minimum, dashboard top, driver, steering wheel and shelf under the rear window. If vacuum formed, must be of reasonable detail and proportion. Champion style and paper drivers are not permitted.

    1.9: No weight limit.

    1.10: Bodies may be lightened provided there are no external changes and wheel arch openings remain standard.

    2. Wheels and Tires

    2.1: Tires may not project beyond the body when the car is at rest on a level track, as viewed from directly above.

    2.2: Reasonable scale appearing inserts are required in all wheels unless the wheels have scale appearance and detail. Blank disc wheels must be covered with inserts.

    2.3: Wheels must look like they were used on the 1:1 car. No F1 rims or 12 mm (dia) wheels unless the original car raced with small wheels.

    2.4: Front tire diameter must be within 2mm of rear tire diameter.

    2.5: Minimum front tire width is 8mm. Front tires may be profiled so that a narrower area contacts the track but must otherwise be full width.

    2.6: Tires must be urethane or rubber. Silicon and foam tires are forbidden. Tires must appear to be black. Clear finish may be applied to front tire tread area. No chemical treatment (such as oil soaking) is permitted.

    3. Motors

    3.1: Any commercially available sealed-can FC-130 slot car motor that produces less than 23.5K rpm at 12 Volts is allowed. FK-180 are allowed but limited to 21.5K rpm. No rewinds or "mod motors" allowed.

    3.2: Magnetic down force from motor may not exceed 30 grams as checked with a Magnet Marshal, exclusive of car weight.

    3.3: Motor can be glued/taped/screwed in place. Pods can be taped or glued to restrict movement.

    4. Modifications

    4.1: Any part of the car may be replaced by any manufacturer’s parts. All wheel drive may be used only if the actual car used it.

    4.2: Weight/ballast can be added but must be contained on the inside of the car.

    4.3: Spring and magnetic suspension packages are allowed.

    4.4: No traction magnets allowed.

    4.5: Bushings and motor can be glued into place.

    5. Vehicle Identification

    5.1: Entrant’s name and body screw adjustment information should be affixed to the underside of the chassis in a readable manner.

    6. Penalties

    6.1: non-compliant mechanical and car set up issues including wheels/tyres at scrutineering - 5 points

    6.2: repair of mechanical failure deemed not to be caused primarily by accident damage - 5 points. A grub screw coming loose is not a mechanical failure and won't be penalised.

    6.3: car not run due to hosts discretion because of clearance issues - no points will be awarded for that round. Car owner has the option to replace tyres or park the car.

    6.4: For all other non-specified events requiring vehicle work the penalty, if any, will be based on a principle of reasonable fairness to all entrants at sole discretion and decision of the organizers

    Cars to be posted to me in Australia by Monday 19 July 2021

    I think that covers everything. Let me know if I've missed anything.

    I’ll need my Clio back for a rebuild. More importantly how are you?

      I'm great. Doctors and physios keep telling me to take it easy. I really miss riding my bicycle though, got another month before I'm allowed to ride.

      They're scared I might fall off and undo the work they did sewing my chest together.

            If the Opel doesn't work out I bought 31 cars off one of the best (fastest) builders I know. One of these should be easy to convert to a Touring car body.
