I'm very keen for some practice at Snives on Saturday before the club series on Sunday. I need to get some prac on their track with the B4 prior, last time I raced there my car was all over the shop and I need to at least give it my best shot for Ryde. Anyone keen for some prac on Saturday? Cheers Chris

Just wanted to remind everybody that this Sunday is the Interclub Shield where 12 of our members are going to battle it out with four other teams for the title of best RC club. So if you want to come along and watch and cheer for our team, they would appreciate the support. I have included details of the event below so you know what it is all about. The event will take place at the St. Ives RC car track, a photo of this recently resurfaced and excellent looking track is included below.

The NSW Interclub Shield - July 25th 2010

The 2010 Interclub Shield is a team competition for 1/10th Electric Offroad Buggys and Trucks.
2 Drivers from each class will be selected by each Club to compete in a one-off, 6 race competition.
Points will be accumulated in each race, and the Club with the most points at the end of the day will take home the Title and Trophy.
There will be 4 NSW Clubs + a Barbarians (compilation) team, with a team captain for each team. Each team is to consist of 12 nominated drivers + 2 reserves. The reserves role will be assisting with marshalling, mechanical, and reserve driver should it be needed.
Castle Hill
Maitland
Ryde
St. Ives
Barbarians
(combination of smaller clubs, interstate, and best of the rest)
Entry will be $120 per team ($10 per driver)
(funds will go toward ‘The Shield’ and the host club).
There will be 6 Classes,
2WD – Stock & Mod
Truck – Stock & Mod
4WD – Stock & Mod
It will be a one day event on a Sunday starting at around 10am.
AARCMCC rules will apply.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
FORMAT - There will be 6 x 6 minute races in a round on a rotating grid. ie. Team 1 front row, team 2 second row, team 3 third row etc. for the first race. For Race 2, team 1 will go to the back, and everyone else will move forward. Rotates over the 5 races so everyone has a start from all rows. The start order will be drawn from a hat on the day. Points will be allocated for 1st through 8th. 10 points for 1st, 8 for second, 6 for third, then 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.
TIME - There will be 6 x 6 minute races a in round with 5 minutes between races (total 1hr). 5 rounds equals around 5 hours. 10am start should finish around 3pm with presentation after that. All races will be Grid Starts.
