What is the race order for the classes tomorrow?

oh and I have an orion marathon 1600mah in the new car

That must have been a major stack!!!

How was the track? Going by Den's video of today's racing, it looks like a pretty good track.

I assume it was pretty hot and no air conditioned comfort.

The normal race format, however Nitro will be first this weekend for the Greg Still Cup.

It may change on the day to assist marshalling and depends on numbers as well.

Nitro, 540, mini, 1/12, stock and super stock.

1/12 will be good with the debut of Ray's S120

Yeah hot and dusty from the wind, but it's a great track - almost like a cross between Tempe and Moorebank

It wasnt a stack, my car just glitched and went head on into a gutter, but I'm now not sure what was to blame since I pulled the engine out and the carby is stuffed! It doesnt slide smoothly and gets stuck at full throttle. It could have happened in crash or it could have caused it, either way I'm hoping for rain tomorrow, but the RRR is ready to go and loaded with the new OS Speed "CRF spec" engine

edit: best thing about the new SORMCC track is the grip! the newly laid hotmix is awesome, heaps of grip and not much tyre wear. Who do we need to bribe on the council to get the same service?? We may have missed the boat with the elections on today, I hope anyone from marrickville voted for a pro-RC candidate

Racing has been called off once again due to the rain.

Look at the BOM website and there is rain coming all across Sydney. Can't beleive it and yesterdays weather was so good

McPhee, you got your wish!!!!!

Don't forget that there is racing on this Tuesday night. Might see if i can get a day pass.
