A Massive Weekend in Australian Racing This Weekend

If you haven’t already checked  it out, make sure you head over to see the Crowd Sourced 2014 Events Calender over at RC Tech http://www.rctech.net/forum/australian-events/777342-crowd-sourced-2014-major-events-calendar.html

One of the best parts of this page is you can also see results from past events and photos and reports where available.

However the focus of this post is this weekend, when there are no less than five major Australian events happening, and one international event in Thailand.

Starting on the northernmost event, there is the TITC Event being held at Huge RC Circuit (it is a real place, and very impressive, check it out https://www.facebook.com/pages/Huge-RC-Project/345117058918017 ) for 1:10 EP Touring Cars,  FWD, F1 etc.  A major international meet for the region attracting some big name drivers, and I believe some Australians.

Next there is round two of the SEQ 12th Tour being held at Logan on the 22nd of Feb.

In 8th Scale off Road, the GP and EP vehicles are hitting the track to see who can claim the King of the Vally title being held at MORCC in NSW.

A little further south, and somewhat to the west, the 8th scale off buggies are hitting the track in Port Lincoln for the Neo+ SA Challenge for Round 1.

In Victoria the Victorian Cup Series for F1 cars kicks off with round 1 being held at Templestowe.

And most southerly, but not least, the AARCMCC Tasmanian EP Off Road state titles are being held at the Goodwood Club just outside Hobart.

So if you can’t find a place to race or spectate at an RC event this weekend, you probably need to try a little harder!

Goodwood Off-Road Model Car Club Inc. is proud to announce the second running of the AARCMCC sanctioned state titles for 10th EP off road in Tasmania. This event will score points towards the IFMAR qualifying for 2WD and 4WD mod. Dates at this stage are TBC, we are awaiting confirmation from AARCMCC.

If you haven’t seen Tasmania before, it would be a great time to bring the family over and have a look around after the event. If you bring your car on the boat it is a 3 hour drive south to Hobart. You can also fly direct to Hobart for as little as $170 return from Melbourne, with a 20-25 minute drive from the airport to the track. You can find more details on the entry form and we’ll provide more info as it comes to hand.

Crowd Sourced 2014 Major RC Race Calendar

As my regular viewers would know, we maintained a Calendar of Major Race Events around Australia.

However it turns out that my efforts were duplicating some fantastic work being done on RC Tech by forum user Scott G.  So rather than take away from the good work being done there, I will be forwarding everybody to that page to see what is happening in the way of Major Events in Australia.  So head over to the RC Tech thread and marvel at just how many major events are on the calendar.
