Default Brant's Hatch - 1:24 Club - Toronto

After a 30 year break operating a home club track, Brant Snow, Toronto Ontario Canada has started up again with a brand new 4 lane Olgilvie set-up in his basement. Several of us ran at his place as teenagers back in the day and it was a blast racing at his home again. Saturday saw Victor Czerwony sweep the night with victories in Nascar and Sportscar Hardbody classes. Jim Toye saw second place finishes in both classes. Porsche 962c's dominated the Sports class.

Next round : March 7th : Modified, followed by IMSA

Many thanks to Brant and his wife for welcoming us to their home !

Default Results : Mar 14th, IMSA / Modified

IMSA : 1st Serge Tourikian

Serge's Rolling Thunderz powered IMSA Mustang was no match for the competition as he easily ran circles around the rest of the field

Modified : 1st Victor Czerwony

Victor was "last man standing" in the crash filled modified event. The majority of entries were off to the body shop at the end of this "demolition derby"

Default rule update / classes

Hello, a couple of questions were brought up last night and here's the answers so there isn't any confusion.

1st question : could Modified class be updated to run newer style bodies ? currently only 1949 and older can be used.

answer : no, but, if you want to prepare modified cars such as Pinto's, Vega's, Mustang II's, Monza's etc. you can enter them in the " Short Track " class that is already in place.

2nd question : can pick-up trucks be entered in the " Street " class ?

answer : yes, you may use truck model kits, as long as they represent a street version of the vehicle

So, start building guys, the next race night is " Street " and " Short Track "

Default results : June 27th, Sports / Nascar

Sports : 1st Jim Toye 2nd Victor Czerwony 3rd Chuck Ingram

It was a Porsche 1-2-3 sweep with the Red Bull 962c taking the win ( finally !!! )

Nascar : 1st Victor Czerwony 2nd Jim Toye 3rd Chuck Ingram

Victor gets the win. Joe Salvaterra's mechanical trouble allows Jim and Chuck to make the podium.

Hey guys,
I had a blast last night. Thanks for including me. And thanks to Brant and Dianne for a great evening and some fantastic food.

Spent a lot of time facing backwards, upside down or sideways on the track, last night... I blame my controller... or my car... or my tires... or... well I'll think of something.

Looking forward to next time.
Bob

Default July 25th race at Ted's

I just want to notify everyone of some more details about the special race this month being put together by Ted's family. This event is only open to members of the former Sharon Miniature Auto Racing Track. Not only will it be a race, it will also give the club members a chance to purchase items from the huge collection of model kits and slotcars, display cases and accessories that Ted has put together since the 1950's.
All sales will be cash, please come prepared to help clear out stock, this is a rare opportunity being offered by Ted's family to his close friends.

Hope to see everyone in a few weeks, Jim
