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
- 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;
- Modern NASCARS, similarly Modern NASCAR has been given a break as it has run non-stop for several years now too; and
- SCX/Carrera DTM, although a popular class it was decided to give this class a break for the 2019 season.
New classes for 2019
- Group A Super Tourers; and
- Home Built.
Both the FJs and Home Built classes will be 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.
We have jugled the classes around a little as a couple of the classes are similar and clashed with each other. So the line-up for 2019 is as follows:
Classic F1, Classic Le Mans, Classic Touring Cars, Classic Sports, Classic Rally, and Group A Super Tourers
G.P. Hero's, Slot.it Group C, Scalex Super Tourers Modern Le Mans, Scalextric BTCC and FJs
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.
