"Triple Crown" Slot Car Proxy Series 2022 10
Thread Subject Forum Name
"Triple Crown" Slot Car Proxy Series 2022 Proxy Racing
Post Message
Wavegreen Having very much enjoyed running the "Brighton to John O'Groats Roadrace", "Extreme Slotting" and currently "Lights on! Le Mans Cars" Proxy series during this year, I have been encouraged to repeat these again in 2022. Additionally I canvassed opinion about doing a single seater/open wheel (GP/F1/Indy) Proxy series along the same lines as the others with both classic and modern class format, and I am encouraged to think there is enough interest in this topic too. Perhaps this one giving most issues in regard to how these classes should be organised.

My main aim with these Proxy events has been to make them accessible to all slot car enthusiasts, not making them too specialized, but generating opportunities for enthusiasts having Standard RTR cars, or those who enjoy modifying slot cars, along with amateur scratch builders to feel involved in a relatively light hearted competition. 
Also initially I was given the motivation for organising these events from a few individuals with sizable home track set ups who was interested to see them used in a competitive competition which they could become involved in. More recently I have also become aware of clubs whose members also wanting to give up some of their time  in order to participate in this form of slot car competition (as with the current Lights on! Le mans Cars Proxy)

So my aim next year is to offer much the same kind of Proxy format, but hopefully still with Individuals and club hosting stages, as I think this gives a good mixture of different track types and challenges which add a high degree of unpredictability to the Proxy series.

Obviously circumstances have changed and generally speaking it seems that with work pressures and club commitments, it is not possible to run these series with the higher number of participants and number of cars to prepare as during the earlier part of this year. So next year I will restrict the number of cars per entry and the total number of cars per class for each Proxy event.

The term"Triple Crown" has been used in may Sports of course, and in Motorsport in various forms. In regard to F1 drivers it is regarded as an unofficial term to describe drivers who competed at Indianapolis 500, Monaco GP, and Le Mans. Only Graham Hill has the honour of winning all 3 events, although there are others (more recently Alfonso) who have entered them. However in our slot car version our 3 disciplines will be described as below.

The intention is to run 3 proxy series under the "Triple Crown" umbrella next year;
Spring - American Trophy-Road Race Championship
Summer- Single seater/open wheels Championship
Autumn - Le Mans Cars Championship

And I will be posting on this thread the format and rules for each Series as we progress. 
The "Extreme Slotting" Proxy will be run around mid year but will be kept separate from the "Triple Crown" concept due to its different format.
