I reckon it's a really good thing that you guys, the event organizers/associated committee, have come online to help the racers with their questions about the event. A very good idea and I can't wait to come up and be part of the event, it will be great!

Is there going to be controlled practice, the drivers stand seems a bit small, which I feel will create an all in brawl for track time.
And although the Track might be open till late, I still think controlled practice would be wise.

Default Friday's practise

Hi Guys just wanted to know if practise on Friday will be open or controlled practise?

Sorry guys don't you hate that when some one writes it up first but I would have to agree controlled practise would be better don't want my 1/2th scales destroyed by a nitro would not set a good vibe for the rest of the meeting.

Default Contolled practice

Last years event had 30 minutes Nitro practice and then 30 minutes Electric practice which seemed to work farly well. Though you will need a commitee member there to organise it etc.

On the previous (now hijacked) winter champs thread the Tamworth guys stated that practice would be controlled by alternating electric/nitro time blocks (I think they mentioned 20 or 30 minutes) with a comprehensive frequency board, and max of 12 (I think they said) cars on track.

This is also exactly how they managed practice for the recent Tamworth Cup and it worked well.

I'm sure based on the performance of the club at the Cup meet last month they'll be well organised and have plenty of personnel there on the Friday to manage the practice process.

Then wouldn't be better to have it broken up in 1/2th scale Stock and modifed and nitro 30minutes each bloke. This is all hear say because none of the officals from Tamworth have said yes or not to our question. yes it will have to have a offical supervising it but they are organising this event.
