Yes I am biased as this event is not only hosted by my local club, but I am one of the event organisers, so on to the event details.

Launceston R/C is proud to present the Fourth annual Chilli FM Launceston R/C Cup. We are excited to have Chill FM on board as naming sponsor for teh 2014 edition of our annual event.

This two day race meeting will bring together the best drivers from around Tasmania and Interstate for two days of intense indoor, electric R/C car racing with a range of classes providing an option for just about every EP R/C Off Road racer.

We are still on the hunt for sponsors, so if you know of any businesses that may be interested please let Richard Green know at greeny@richardgreenphotography.com.au . Naming sponsorship rights are still available, as are minor sponsorships.

Track: For those who haven’t visited Launceston R/C before, the track surface has been evolving over the years to where the majority of the surface is carpet or artificial turf with man made jumps, humps and other artificial obstacles. There are small sections of concrete in places, however the majority of it is covered now, marking a big change in grip from when the track was mostly concrete. There will be a fresh track layout for this event to limit the advantage of local drivers.
