New Classes decided for 2019

 

The AGM and final race of the year was held again and boy does that seem like it came around a lot faster this year. Unexpectedly, we had a bit to discuss regarding classes we might like to shelve for the 2019 racing season and those new classes that we would like for next year. It was a tuff decision as the current 2018 line-up had something for everyone.

Although there were a lot of discussion in the end we stuck with 3 groups of 6 classes and shelved only 3 of the classes in total.

Listed below are the changes to classes for 2019.

Classes dropped from the 2018 line-up

  1. Modern Rally, it was decided that we have run modern rally for quite a few years now and the decision to shelve the class for 2019 was made;
  2. Modern NASCARS, similarly Modern NASCAR has been given a break as it has run non-stop for several years now too; and
  3. SCX/Carrera DTM, although a popular class it was decided to give this class a break for the 1019 season.

New classes for 2019

  1. FJ's;
  2. Group A Super Tourers; and
  3. Home Built.

Both the FJs and Home Built classes will be scratch built lexan bodies on either a scratch built chassis (no metal chassis), plastic adjustable chassis or kit bashed (as it were) from another model. Basically Scalextric running gear, 18k motor in line, 27/9 gear ratio and open guide blade.

While the Group A Super Tourers are open to any Group A Super Touring car, from 1982 - 2000 era.

So the line-up for 2019 is as follows:

Group A
Classic F1, Classic Le Mans, Modern Le Mans, Classic Sports, Scalex Super Tourers and Group A Super Tourers

Group B
G.P. Hero's, Slot.it Group C, Classic Rally, Classic Touring Cars, Scalextric BTCC and FJs

Group C
Classic NASCAR, V8/Utes, Group 5 Thunder Cars, Ninco Classic Tourers, N.Y. Modifieds and Home Built

Well that wraps up the AGM for another year! See you in the New Year.

New Web Hosting Service for 2015

 

After quite a few years, our current arrangement for web hosting has come to an end. Subsequently, the group has agreed to pay for a web hosting service to continue the website at the last Scalextric ACT race meeting on 19 June 2015.

I can now report that both the CSC and Scalectric ACT websites are now on the new host server.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Richard (owner of Dualstream) for his support over the years.

Regards Rick.

The AGM was held at the last meeting of the year and was hosted by Rick this year. Again, the AGM was short and sweet and we all agreed on the following changes to the line up for 2015.

In bringing some new classes in we had to forgo a few favorites such as trucks but we had made a decision to give them a rest for the year with the view to bring them back in 2016, these are the new classes for 2015.

  • Carrera G.T. / DTM
  • G.P. Hero's (Front engine F1 / Indy cars, re-motored with NC-1 type of motor)

  • N.Y. modifieds: for the ovals.

We also decided to increase the classes in all groups from 5 to 6 classes, so the new line up for 2015 looks like this:

Group A
Classic F1, Classic Sports, Classic Le Mans, Modern Le Mans, Super Tourers and super 7.

Group B
