Default 2019 Hills Off Road Vintage Enduro 10/03/19

Hi Everyone!! The Hills Off road committee is proud to announce the Vintage Enduros for 2019 will be run on Sunday the 10th of March.



There haven’t been many changes to the main 5 hour race, we proposed a few changes to points particularly on the 4wd buggies which took into account the lower reliability and lower run times which everyone seemed happy with so you’ll see the 2019 buggy points list attached



With regards to the points values for particular buggies, the allocation takes into account the speed of the car, consideration is also given to rarity of the buggy, available gearing options, fragility and run time.



We’re going to try and get the Blitzer / Plastic race up this year, we’ve obviously struggled to get good numbers so we’ve opened it up to allow any plastic eligible buggy or hotshot / Thundershot buggy to run also and we’ve dropped it to 90 minutes. Teams can run any combination of 1 or 2 buggies/trucks from those groupings and can be in a team of 2-4 drivers. If you do it with 2 drivers, you still need to ensure you have a marshal out at all times, so I recommend having your batteries near the pit stop table, also the pit stop time is 90 seconds for the Blitzer/Plastic race so you should have time to swap over and not lose time. The rules for the race are attached to this post. We’ll run the short track for this race (same track as run for the plastic/hotshot classes at the festival) so this race will skip the triple jump and the step down



With regards to the points system, I know it can look a bit complex when you’re first looking at it, the simple aim is to even up the field by allowing a team with more once a year racers, to drive better cars overall compared to a team of pros. I’m happy to help guide you through it. How it works is the team captain will get in touch with me, let me know the drivers and potential car line up and I’ll confirm the amount of bonus points the team has and what cars fit in the line up





Once again this year both enduros will be run on the one day. The Blitzer/Plastic enduro will be a 90 minute event followed by the main enduro which will again run for 5 hours.

6th team confirmed!!

The SDB Dauntless boys are back for another year, they've added Andrew Curless to the line up and a name change will be coming soon. Great to see these guys back for another crack!

That makes 6 teams, we've got Pete close to finalising the Try-hards line-up, and hopefully we'll hear from the Codgers, Bugles and Highlanders soon so we'll get up to the magic 10 teams. Still hoping to pick up another Bathurst team also. Can we get 11-12 teams in the race? Lets hope so!!

TBA
Brendan George
Steve Thorncraft
Darryl Thorncraft
Andrew curless

For the Blitzer enduro we're starting to get teams in which is great and looks like we'll get the minimum 6 teams. Remember you can run a combination of cars from Plastics/Hotshots/thundershots and the blitzer/king cab family

Also Nick Aiken has a Blitzer and wants to form a team so if your main team isn't running a blitzer entry and you want a steer, get in touch and we can put you in contact

Blitzer Teams

Kamikazees - Blitzer
The Dukes - Blitzer
Bathurst Boys - Blitzer
Here's Johnny! - FX10
Nick Aiken - Blitzer
The Try-hards - Blitzer (TBC)

Cheers

Mikey

Mikey, I'll be another running a top cat re-re, not the pro-x this time around.
also, won't see a second Bathurst team as most of the good side of the mountain drivers are already on teams. 5 1/2 of the other drivers actually (1/2 as Brendan is ex-central west lol) so pretty good turnout for the bush

Looks like the Codgers are back! Just waiting on final line up of cars but likely that Ron, David, Brian and Rob are together again which puts us up to 7 teams and i've spoken to key members in the Highlanders and Try-hards and both teams are close to finalizing line-ups

Also put the Losi in for Andrew Curless and updated Brad Dennings ride. Seems like a lot of the rere topcats will be out there this year and why not, great value at 4 points

The Codgers (TBC)
Rob Smith - RC10 B2
Brain Goby - RC10 Worlds
Dave Martin - Cat XLS
Ron Curby - RC10T

TBA
Brendan George - RC10
Steve Thorncraft - (In Transit)
Darryl Thorncraft - Losi XXT
Andrew curless - Losi XX
