Default 2017 XRS Round 4 Whalan Reserve 7-8th October




Round 4 of the XRAY Race Series will now be held at Whalan, Located in Whalan Reserve off Debrincat Avenue.

The format will be Saturday being a practice day and Sunday all Qualifying and mains will be run:
Saturday Gates open at 9 to start OPEN Practice at 10:00AM, seeing how the day progresses and the speed differences at this track Controlled practice in groups will most likely be put into place when it gets too busy or at 12:30PM, whichever comes first. Practice will be open until 5PM and the Track will be CLOSED.

Sunday Gates will open at 6:30 and Racing will begin at no later than 8AM sharp, if time is available we will try to open the track for 20-30 mins for open practice. 3 qualifiers will be completed to be followed by Triple A-mains and double lower mains, if time is restricted lower mains will be reduced to 1 Final. Due to running 3 demo classes as high interest has been indicated these classes will be reduced to 2 main finals if time does not allow us to run 3 for all the fixed classes.

Yes we will be using the full track layout as this is best, other ideas have either broken cars or we lose the technical parts of the track

In F1 I would recommend Shimizu Medium Front and Ride R1/XR rears as a safe option, maybe shimizu soft or medium rears if its cooler weather

Yes juniors are also to use the control motor

Hope this helps cheers

Default Entry Form

Hi Guys,

As Jeff has stated already the 3 demo classes will be having 2 finals only if we get all 3 classes running, but if 2 out of the 3 demo classes get numbers then the 2 demo classes will get there 3 finals. We are going to be running very tight on time as we want to be finished by 5pm so we can get all get home at a decent hour on a Sunday afternoon, so this will require a lot of help from you the racer to be ready to go when your heat is up.

As for the numbers of drivers we have cut it off to a maximum of 10 drivers and a minimum of 8, So if your thinking of racing please get your entries in along with payment to confirm your spot, once we have hit the maximum of 10 drivers for the class will we start taking entries as reserves, so if someone pulls out the next in line will get that spot.

On the Friday afternoon before racing ill be going down to prep and spray the track so there will be plenty of grip for what will be an epic weekend of racing.

Ari will be down there with his coffee cart to provide everyone with food and drinks for the weekend so please support him. Once again we appreciate all the support we are getting and looking forward to the weekend of racing.

Any questions you have please don't hesitate to ask one of us, more than happy to help.

Thanks to everyone who came last Sunday. Was a great day out testing and warming up for the xrs series round 4!

21.5 saw a tight race that was dominated by Chris Milton with pressure early on from Graham Alt. The battle however was between Ray Zarb and the Junior Gun Brandon Alt. Nothing but a hair split these 2 all day, Brandon showing skills to say, next year I'm coming for all you guys!

13.5 was great to have a range of cars from awesomatix, Xray and yokomo. With Damien Zarb too consistent, David Tjhen finished the day off with consistency that Dan Garcia himself couldn't match.

No need to go through modified. With Jeff Mackie on track, not many can beat him at whalan....is this enough of a challenge for next warm up meet to the other mod drivers to come along. You are going to need the practice, as the King of whalan patiently awaits your challenge! 😂🙈🤣

This Sunday we will do it again, Jeff and I will be at the QLD state titles but hope you all get some fun racing in while we are gone!

Default Calling for late entries!

Hi all,

Please get your last minute entries in for XRS Round 4 at WMCC.

We have another warm up meet this Sunday!

In case some of you may not know, Whalan is one of the largest tracks in Sydney and possibly Australia. Get your practice in to find that crucial gearing ratio and setup.

I will be happy to help advise my knowledge of our home track for those that come.

We will also be testing a sugar coat this week. If it is better, we will continue to lay it down for xrs! Thanks to Sugar Daddy

Kind Regards,
John Puse
