Hey Colin,

I'm already glueing Gladiator chariot style spikes onto my wheels

I'm waiting for delivery of the RC flame thrower and ground to ground missile system I have on backorder.

I know the rules state no ESC timing allowed but does it say anything about external booster rocket engines

Hi all,

I am absolutely thrilled about how the Clubman Class has turned out! The class was designed as a "nursery" class where new and improving drivers would work on their skills and there is no doubt that it is working.

Ivan, David, Lee and Kevin all put in good performances yesterday and the championship could not have been closer.

I'll have all the results up later tonight, but I can tell you that the Clubman championship was tied with the eventual winner (after applying the proceedure as outlined in the championship regulations) being Ivan Thomson with David Home in second. Ivan is being awarded the victory based on his two TQ's over the season to David's one TQ. They don't come closer than that!

We done to both competitors!

Hi Will,

I must admit I really enjoyed myself racing against such a great bunch of . . . . . . . lads

I know this next suggestion is a bit crazy but it's a crazy world

It seems an awful shame that the championship was decided by one FTQ, I know the rules were agreed & I know in life you have winners and people who don't win BUT is there any remote chance of having a joint winner?

I'm not trying to start a big discussion about this and I hope Ivan does not mind me even asking about this. I just think both Ivan & Dave are such fantastic competitors that it would be great if both of them could win.

It just seems a shame since it was SO close

Rule changes can be made during the year by the committee and ratified by the AGM. Nothing can be done about the championship which has just ended, but rule changes can be made for future ones.

I'll bring it up at the next committee meeting

Don't think I will be moving up just yet Derek, I've only been at this 8 months. Still learning all the time. Perhaps after the Summer, I will have a look at where I am. I feel I have progressed quite well so far. A long way still to go though. I don't want to be moving up just to make up the numbers, when I move up I want to be able to compete. I think that was partly my downfall with the TC's, tried to be too fast too soon.

I think that this needs to be looked at, as i said before the clubman class really took off this winter and produced some of the closest racing i have seen in Rc ( not at it that long though) but !!!! there is a big gap between the front and rear of the clubman class and likewise in the mod class.
I would say there is room to have a middle ground class so as new racers are not put off by the speed of the front runners week after week .Some type of progression ladder needs to be looked at and if numbers don`t allow a seperate race amalgamate them but show seperate championship positions.????
On a seperate note well done to all drivers last weekend for a good (cleanish) days racing. Hard luck David but our fortunes were mixed with me having a terrible start to the day and you doing it the other way round having a good start and not as good a finish.Overall it couldn`t have been any closer.
Looking at the origional regulations on the points allocation it says that an extra point is allocated to TQ on each round.This didn`t make a difference to the final result but as these points were not allocated it could have??
