There is also a Tamiya shop and history display area in the stadium, and a display of muscle cars all owned by Tamiya Switzerland employees! Goes to show how deep the passion runs and possibly how good working in Switzerland is. How about a job, Andy?







The Viper is very special - and one of the last 50 made...

There's Almost live timing!! Good that I was only told about this now....

but seeing as I am such a crap reporter I'll just give you the link instead of retyping them all

http://www.myrcm.ch/main?dId[E]=6774

It seems to be running 3 races slow. It now says we are on race 3 but Quali 5 is the latest on there.

ENJOY!

I know, thats why I posted up on the previous page photos of the printed Q6. You will notice one was missing (GT iirc?). There was a problem with the primary timing system last night during Q6.

I will find out whats happening to it now. If it's not going to be fixed I'll continue to photo the printed results, or type up the top 3 placers for each race.

But I know some of you are interested in friends results so photoing the whole printed sheets is better in that case.

Well that posting up that link was not too useful -

There is a fault with timing since the last qual last night and the live timing has now been turned off as they dont understand the problem and don't want to risk affecting the primary and back up system today.

So I will post up the results.

Now about these bad boys



These are the batteries TT Stock, F.Buggy, M-chassis and Gentlemen have to use, and had to buy here.

There has been alot of general unhappiness about these cells (hey, I guess there had to be something ppl would not like!). Why?
- because everyone has lipos
- ppl would prefer to spend their money on lipo cells if they HAVE to spend their money on new batteries
- the cells seem old to many and some gave such low voltage racers complained/tried to swap

Since voltage testing is common in many races it's interesting that this was not done instead here and lipos for all.

The organisers said the cells just needed to be cycled.
And the cells are cheaper than lipos (F1 and GT class) hence fits the lower cost image of the TT, mini, buggy, GM.

Results of second Mains.

There was a problem with the mini A timing, so they have to repeat that race. Relief for the drivers 5 and below, agony for those above. There's a bit of door banging going on in Mini A anyway, so hope this gives another chance to those whom deserve it.

As a result the meet should end with a mini race
Coolest class last imo!

Here are the missing time sheets.

Mini reads 3, but race 2 results were lost. So there will be a fourth mini race.
