Hi guys,
Next Setup will be held on Monday June 4th from 7:00pm in the Budawang building. If you turn up you get $5 off racing.
The next round for the Touring Classes is on June 19th in the Mallee Building. This will be round 1 of the winter series
The next round for the Clubman Classes is on July 10th in the Mallee Building.
June 5th will be a fun night in the Budawang Building, for details read below.
For a break down on Touring and Clubman classes visit: http://www.actmcrc.org.au/calendar.htm

Track Setup – Next Occurring Monday 4 June
One of the most important things the club does outside of racing is run Track Setup's. Normally held on a Sunday Afternoon or a Monday Evening before a race meeting. Track setup nights came about as a more convenient way to put together the clubs track to allow more racing and practice at actual meetings.
We don't need to run a setup for every race meeting, over the years the ACTMCRC has been racing at EPIC we have been permitted to leave our track setup most of the time, unfortunately we are still required to dismantle the track from time to time.
It's important that we don't grow complaisant and adopt the attitude that 'some one else will do it'. If you can make it out to a setup (or help when we have to pack the track up) this is a massive help to the regular attendees to these events.
To encourage attendance to the setup nights (and to help packup) the club is now offering $5 off your race fees if you help out at either two of these events. If you help out at both you get $5 off the next two times you race.
What is really helpful at about going to the setup nights is that once the track is setup you can practice. The track is pretty much available until the committee member who holds the keys wants to leave.
I know not everyone can make it to setup or help pack up after racing, but if you are available one in awhile to help out then the whole club will benefit.
Racing on the 5th of June

With the cancellation of the Enduro the ACTMCRC finds it’s self with a vacancy for the 5th of June. Not wishing to throw our members plans for the drivers championship into disarray with a significantly different track, Building B has a tarmac floor, were planning a fun night.

Were planning to run all classes dispersed between 4 classes on the night.
Novice and Mini’s will run together. F1, Le Mans, 540 Intermediate, 540 Touring and 540 Pro will all race together and Stock, SuperStock, 19T and Modified will run together. Depending on Numbers Off Road will also be run.

So far it sounds like the usual deal, well, this is where it gets interesting. Qualifying will be by your best single lap, and then we’ll divide the qualifying order into groups of 8 and run between 2 and 3 finals for each class. The finals will be over a fixed distance of 30 Laps.

There will be no trophies and this does not count towards the driver’s championships, it’s all about racing and having FUN!!

New Look Clubman Nights

Off Road
Buggies are still racing. A small but determined group pilot their 2WD and 4WD RC cars around the ACTMCRC Indoor Track with Jumps!

Le Mans
Tamiya F103 serves are the prototype for this call; virtually a 2WD Touring Car Class open to all 190mm 2WD On Road RC Cars

F1
Now a budget class restricted to Rubber tyres and Chrome 540 Motors should see this class on the rise again.

Mini
Like F1 Mini has been reviewed and the rules tightened up. Limited modifications will bring the focus back on driving skill.

540 Pro
Tamiya’s Sports Tuned Motors installed in Touring Cars equipped with Rubber Tyres for a different driving experience, we also allow 540 Touring Cars to run in this class.

Super Stock.
A new home for Brushless 13.5 (Stock equivalent) motors, as well as JRM 23t motors and Tamiya Sports Tuned motors. Foam tyres are permitted.


Interclub Round 3
With round 2 of the interclub challenge still fresh in everyone’s memory preparation starts for round 3 at Fairy Meadow in Illawarra. Currently the ACTMCRC sits in 6th place in the club points score, with around 5 drivers attending the first and second rounds this is an excellent effort. To help us in our effort in getting into 5th place I would like to encourage anyone from the club who has the time to make the trip to Illarrawa.

There are 5 classes in the Interclub challenge, Mini, 540, Stock, 19t and Modified. The rules are AARCMCC, which are very similar to ours with the Body Shell requirements being 4 door sedans. If you would like to go but don’t have a legal shell please let Mark know as the committee has been stockpiling 2nd hand body shells for club members who need a shell to run in the AARCMCC events that the club competes in.

The fairy meadow track is constructed on a converted tennis court with temporary barriers. Foam tyres will work and should be competitive in 540. Both Matt and Mill were racing on Foam tyres and they finished in the B finals.

If you would like to attend the 3rd round of the challenge cup then please visit the ACTMCRC’s website where you will find links to the online entry system for the event.
