This event was held in conjunction with Plafit Scale
GT cars as an introduction to Retro racing.
Report from John as seen on
Last night at MR's scale night we raced Aussie Retro
cars for the first time in Melbourne.
After a little bit of hassell over which motor we would run Peter VH
agreed that we could run the correct Chettah II motor and combine the
cars with the Int32 entrants.
Although there were only 3 cars to race the rest of the places were
taken with the Int 32's.
Peter Dimmers, Geoff Little and myself ran the Aussie retro cars.
Not having raced my car against another before I had nothing to compare
with - by the end of the first bracket I realised that I had some work
to do in the handling department, to keep up with the other two.
speed wasn't too bad but I was getting blitzed around the corners.
At the end of the race Dimmers was 1st, Geoff 2nd and I took up the
final podium position.
I was pleased to see the cars created quite a lot of interest within the
other blokes racing that night with a few comments about building cars
to race - GREAT STUFF - that is what the first display race was all
Peter VH took some photos and movie clips of the race, so hopefully he
will post them in this forum.
Hopefully next time there will be a few new Aussie Retro cars to fill
out the field some more.
