I am looking to get a used 10x2 but im a little scared of running it. Ill be bringing my 17T HPI Challenge motor and 19T komodos as well.

I guess it will depend on how big the track layout is, otherwise i might go the 19T as well.

Just a reminder that Gates Open at 6:30am on Sunday at Oran Park.

Entry is from Cobbity Road, and entrants will need to drop off their equipment and then park in the designated area.

The plan is to start Open Practice at about 7:00am, but this is dependant upon track setup being completed on Saturday. If anyone is available to help with track setup on the Saturday it would be greatly appreciated. You can call Kevin on 0414 275 867 for times and details.

The race program is planned as follows:

7:00 to 9:00am - Open Practice

9:00 to 12:00 - 2 Rounds of Qualifying & Kids Free Test Drive sessions

12:00 to 1:40pm - B Finals & A Final EP (Leg 1)

1:40 to 2:20 - Lunch Break (Rc vs 1:1 Drag on Main Straight)

2:20 to 5:00 - A FInals & Dunny Demolition Derby!

Entrant numbers are excellent (approx: 73) and PDNR thank everyone for their support.


Hope to see you there!

The final entrant listing has been updated on the PDNR webiste - www.pdnracing.org.au

This year will be the best attendance ever, and it is good to see some new faces amongst the crowd!

Catch you at the track!

At this stage everything is going ahead as planned.

If the event has to be cancelled, we will try and post it here ASAP or you can call the PDNR HOTLINE on 0433 410 028.

As far as re-scheduling the event in the case of rain etc., it would be up to the Kids Race Day (Rotary Club of St George Central)

Thanks to all who attended yesterdays race meet. Well done to everyone for putting in the effort. I trust everyone had a good time & a warm fuzzy feeling for helping to raise $3877.00 for the kids. Special thanks to the drivers that brought cars out for the test drive sessions, the feedback from the kids was great & the smiles were everywhere. I am sure Roo will post the results soon, but until then consider yourself all winners.

Yep thanks to PDNR and everyone who made the meet happen. It was a fun event to run (also having those garages to pit in was fabulous).

Congratulations also on the funds raised, that is a huge amount!!!!

See you all same time next year (is it 3rd Sunday of December or something?) and hopefully with more electric spots :P
