To me seen as Sunday is the 1st to me I didn't take that as a full weekend, and I did see a calendar several months ago when I asked so I could change accommodation dates it was on the following. Anyway such is life looks like it will be in 2018 next time I hopefully can make it.

Know I have a real delamar wife has said as long as I find someone to go too Lionel Ritchie with her I can come down. Big question what is my life worth.

Good Morning,

A full set of rules will be available with a link via the entry form available by the end of the month ( I just tried to find them whilst at work and couldn't ) But will ensure they are available when I find them

As for Tyres in the past there hasn't been a limit on Tyres although I believe you will only need 1 or 2 sets Max' ?

Hope this helps somewhat ?

Cheers

Thanks that does help I will keep an eye out for the entry form cheers , one other quick question regarding the new proline VTA tyres , if they are available before the event will they be legal or does this create problems regarding the performance between the HPI tyres and the new PL tyres being the release date is so close to the event ,

I think you can pretty much guarantee that it will be HPI tyres only.You can't allow a new tyre to be used when not everyone will necessarily have access to it.

Tony biggest problem will be supply, I know Ren had all his stock by people in the US as they can't get them. So for class to run might have no choice but to run a mix. I will be in Newie tomorrow racing so will ask a guy who works at Frontline what he knows about the supply.

Hi All,

As there has been talk about the VTA HPI tyres and the Pro-line VTA tyres .

The only Tyre allowed at the Bendigo Classic is the HPI and this is because the new pro-line VTA Tyre has not been released yet and don't know when and the Hpi is still available and Renato at RAB has them in stock and I am sure that Hearns hobbies and if you ask around there is plenty .

Thank you Mr Gray for that and as tony has said it will be only HPI VTA Tyres and rims allowed just like at the AOC in Canberra.

If you have any problems do not hesitate to contact me.

Cheers

Default VTA Tires

Spoke to a guy who works at Frontline about the tires for VTA, he told me they have a good supply of rear tires and rims and are expecting front tires in at the end of this month.
