Default 2019 MINI NATS (AND TRUCKS!) @ TFTR AUG 25TH

We thought Mini Nats might have a rest this year, but NO! It's been re-invented, re-jigged, and re-invigorated for a Brand New Year!
Welcome to the all new Mini Nats, still supported and sanctioned by us at rc-mini, but this time around its being done by the very capable guys at TFTR.
With Jason and Tim behind it you can expect the same level of professionalism (and fun) but this time all in a one day format and at a suburban Melbourne track with TFTR's awesome facilities.

Plus...in the spirit of all things Mini, this time they're adding Race Trucks as well! Either Tamiya Trucks or 21.5 TC based Trucks, whatever floats your boat, Thats gotta be fun.
We'll all still be there of course but we're handing the reins over to the TFTR boys to run it. It's gonna be HUGE! (even though it's mini)

Entries aren't out yet (we'll let you know when) but there's info available HERE.

It's pretty much just 13.5 stock 12th scale pan car (as per RCRA rules) but with a GT style body instead of the normal pan car bodies. We'll have a more formal class description write-up soon.
