THe track looks awesome guys. Has it been built above the old track? It looks like it is on the old car park area

The German Club .... horrible memories of Cheeseman drinking from the spirit dispensers

yup, while I could sit here and ramble on for a bit...

http://www.cormcc.org/cormccsite/ind...=79&Itemid=100

18 x Buggy in the point score
19 x MT in point score
6 x Trugg's

We usually had more people out there, not everyone is in the pointscore

I would expect that we will have a full field of Trugg's this year out there most weekends... A few Hellfires, a Mugen or two, a Losi or two... Should be good.

sad to say, nope, a few guys have them, no one races them, jason will prolly kill me, but there is no reason that as soon as we get the numbers we will run the class, with the titles coming to a place call canberra soon... I really hope its a class that will take off

as I got asked on another forum, and I will never be able to find it again.. here are some average directions on how to get to our track for the people who dont know.

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...13347&t=h&om=1
it is inside the velodrome complex you can see in the above url. kyeema st is more of a carpark than a street but you go via it...


as for how to get there.... the venue is in narrabundah... so

from sydney, down the federal, and just keep going straight, eventually you will be in the cbd of canberra. (Northbourne Ave)
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...9,0.106773&t=h

you will go around a big kinda round about thing, but just keep following it and you will be driving down Commonwealth ave.
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...3,0.106773&t=h
as you get close to parliment house, you will go via a set of lights just out the front, there will be an offramp on the left, take it, it will drop you onto State Circle.

Once on here, 2nd left onto Brisbane Ave. Follow it all the way to the end, and turn right onto Wentworth Ave.
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...3,0.053387&t=h

One you get to the roundabout, I personally think its straight ahead, but when you are at the round about, you will realise its actually not straight ahead, its accross the other side of the round about... onto Sturt Ave
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...t=h&iwloc=addr

Once on Sturt ave, its basically straight, the road will turn into Jerrabomberra Ave and then goyder will be on the left at a round about...

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...1,0.026693&t=h

Once you are on there, its the first right, thru the dirt carpark, along next to a oval, then into the velodrome, once inside the gate hang a hard left.
