Exclamation RC Formula1 Vic Cup Series - All EP Classes - 9 Rounds - Feb-Nov 2014



2014 will be the 3rd year of this Series.

Feedback from drivers rated the 2013 Vic Cup Series as a great success! So we've expanded the 2014 series:

1. Metro Hobbies have come on board as the major sponsor. Please support them. Check out the Metro Hobbies online store.

2. The Series has grown from 5 tracks to 9 tracks.

3. The Series now includes Touring Cars and Mini in addition to F1.

4. With so many races the year has been split into two "Seasons". Drivers accumulate points at each Round. There will be a podium for each class for each Season as well as an overall podium per class for the year.

5. Club points has been introduced to determine a winning club for 2014.

No pre-payment. Pay on the day. Couldn't be simpler!!

Hi guys. Things have been flat out at work so I haven't had time to keep the entry list up to date unfortunately. So this is a quick post to let everyone know that entries have come in thick and fast and Round 1 in 3 weeks time is shaping up to be a great start to the series. Rest assured that all the preparations have been taken care of and all the medals for Round 1 have arrived. See you all then!

IS $25 per round the correct entry fee? That is $225 for nine rounds.

That's correct. Most of the entry fees go to the host track. Remember that each Round is a stand alone event with medals/trophies for the podium of every class. Most events have an entry fee which is similar or higher.

There are also season trophies and trophies for the year, concourse, team, etc - see the website for a list.

Of course most people won't attend every round and you only need to attend 3 rounds per season and 5 rounds for the year. Of course if you attend every round that would be great and allows you to drop your worst results. Some will only attend one or two rounds over the year.

We're now up to about 40 entries overall plus people that have indicated they'll come to specific rounds.

NSW are having a similar series this year but they have chosen to run their rounds at 9 large events throughout the year, so their entry fee is bigger again and varies by round. We're watching their results closely and they're looking at us, to see which option racers prefer so we can use the most popular one in 2015.

From various news sites today:

Alpine gets serious

Alpine Automotive has just announced that it will be fielding 2 vehicles in the 2014 RCFormula1 Vic Cup Series. This confirms part of the rumours that several new teams have submitted applications to partake in the 2014 series. Following from the 2013 Le Mans Entry, Renault will be in partniship for the new venture which also carries over all existing sponsors from its Le Mans entry. The official team name is "Alpine Formula Renault"

Drivers were also announced for the series. Last year's BMW Castrol #1 & 2 as well as dual championship winning pairing of David Stevens & John Papagrigoriou have signed on for a 1 year contract with the team.

David Stevens will be continuing with the much successful F104 V2 chassis while in an effort to nab his ever elusive 1st title, John Papagrigoriou has elected to use Exotek's F1R2 chassis.

The team was able to confirm that an official car launch will be at the 1st round of the cup series.

The excitement is building. Round 1 is this Sunday 23 Feb at TFTR.

Make sure you have your best body on as concourse will be judged at Round 1 for the entire Season.

For F1 teams the best livery will be chosen, and medals awarded to both drivers in the winning team, for the entire year.

See you this Sunday!!

So there is no choice of " opting out " of the series for this weekend? As this is on the calendar as the first race of the club series it seems a little harsh to saddle the club members who only want to run as part of the club series with extra entry fees or casual racers who only want to race a normal club day and have no intention of attending another round of the series.

Nobody said that Max. If you don't wish to enter the cup series that's no problem. Just tell Bill in race control when you enter and you'll just pay for the club day

This was in response to a question asked about the price of $25 per round.

Sorry, but that reads to me that the entry fee is that at the rounds of the series.

My understanding is that while each round is an event at that track, unless the round is run outside of a club day (which a few are) then the event just operates in conjunction to the regular club day. If you participate as part of a round of the series you pay $25. If you are not participating and just doing a club day then you pay whatever the club race fee normally is for each respective club.
