Lee Martin leaves Tamiya

Lee martin announced this morning on his facebook page that he would be parting ways with Tamiya TRF as they are reducing their off road operations.  We wait with interest to see where Lee lands!

So the end has come. Tamiya TRF have chosen to reduce operations in the off road market for the foreseeable future, therefore they are not continuing my contract. I would like to thank TRF for their support over a successful past 4 years, bringing such results as:
2nd in the Worlds Championship
4 x European champion
4 x National champion
4 x IFMAR world finals
19 individual national wins
EOS round winner
And many more!

With this decision, the future now lies somewhere new in 1/10th off road! A challenge I am looking forward to taking, but nothing is yet decided.
For sure it’s going to feel strange for a little while.

Thanks for your support.

Lee

Melbourne Off Road Radio Car Club Working Bee

On Saturday the 14th of December the club will be opening for a Working Bee. It would be largely appreciated if the club members and non members could attend and help with the cleaning up of the track and surroundings.

Jobs to be completed are

  • Slashing of weeds growing on track infield. (If anyone that owns a slasher could please bring it along. the club doesn’t own one)
  • Removal of rocks from racing surface
  • Removal of rubbish left after race meets
  • Repair of racing surface
  • Re-pegging of pipes that have come loose

When the works are complete the track will open for practice for all those that helped with the working bee.

Gates will open at 9am

Racing Event Calendar

It is always difficult to publicise major events to attract drivers to Attend, so we thought we would help by putting up a calendar of major racing events on our very own Racing Calendar.

AARCMCC provide no such calendar across all sections, and not all clubs are AARCMCC affiliated.  So if you have a major event, send us the details via the Contact Us page and we will put the details up for all to see!
