Default 2014 Launceston Cup hosted by Launceston RC - 3-5 October 2014

Launceston R/C is proud to present the Fourth annual Chilli FM Launceston R/C Cup.

This two day race meeting will bring together the best drivers from around Tasmania and Interstate for two days of intense indoor, electric R/C car racing with a range of classes providing an option for just about every EP R/C Off Road racer.

We are still on the hunt for sponsors, so if you know of any businesses that may be interested please let Richard Green know at [email protected] . Naming sponsorship rights are still available, as are minor sponsorships.

When: Friday 3rd, Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th of October, 2014

Timetable:

Friday – 6:00pm to 9:00 pm, Practice Session

Saturday -7:30 am open, 8:00 controlled practice, 8.45 drivers briefing, 9.10am racing starts. 30 minute Lunch at Approx 1 pm. Finish approx 3:40pm with Trophies for class winners.

Sunday – 7:30 am open, 8:00 controlled practice, 8.45 driver’s briefing, 9.10am racing starts. 30 minute Lunch at Approx 1 pm. Finish approx 4:40 pm with Trophies for class winners.

Where: Uniquely Tasmanian Pavilion, Quercus Rural Youth Park, Carrick, Tasmania just 10 minutes outside Launceston.

Classes Saturday: Open/44 Short Course Truck, 2wd Buggy Stock, 2wd Buggy Modified, Stadium Truck Open, Novice. Full details including rules for each class below. Any class may be removed if numbers do not reach at least 4 vehicles.

Classes Sunday: 2wd Short Course Truck Stock, 4wd 10th Buggy Stock, 4wd 10th Buggy Modified, Junior. Full details including rules for each class below. Any class may be removed if numbers do not reach at least 4 vehicles.

Track: For those who haven’t visited Launceston R/C before, the track surface has been evolving over the years to where the majority of the surface is carpet or artificial turf with man made jumps, humps and other artificial obstacles. There are small sections of concrete in places, however the majority of it is covered now, marking a big change in grip from when the track was mostly concrete. There will be a fresh track layout for this event to limit the advantage of local drivers.



The 2013 Track and Layout


We hope to attract some mainland drivers down once again, and that is partially why we are organising details so far in advance of the event.

We have confirmation that local food icon Burger Junkie will be attending for lunchtime burgers, and Bump N Grind Coffee will also be on site for the two days.
