Autumn Endurance - InterSeries Proxy
#1

Wavegreen Just in case your worrying about what to do after building your Summer Grand Prix Proxy cars, I have the third in the Triple Crown Series of Proxy's to announce.

I am anticipating that with the support of our band of loyal hosts we will be able to put on another show starting in October of 10 stages to run to the end of November.

After last years "Lights On" Le mans I wanted to broaden the scope a little more this year, so I have included Daytona and Interseries GT cars into the Classes.
I am hoping that some of the hosts will offer to run a "subdued lighting " stage and as such I have encouraged the fitting of lights by awarding 10 bonus points at the end of the series to any car which is fitted with them. 

Class A Theme - Modern 24Hrs Endurance cars (1990 -to date)
I wanted here to make this a standard RTR and modified class, so all the brands are from the home racing world. But as with the Road Race I have permitted the entrants to use restricted upgrade parts as before, but additionally I recognise that many of the models are significantly improved with the addition of 3d printed Chassis which are now easily available in the UK from Amato Slot car Design, JS Chassis Design, WSR etc. Also allowed is lightweight lexan replacement interiors in order to allow the incorporation of the 3d chassis and motor fitting without butchering the original moulded piece. But there is a minimum weight of body/interior and a overall car weight restriction, which along with using basic standard motors, should allow for another very closely run class as we have enjoyed to date.

So attached is the Introductory and Class A rules

[attachment=23070]

As this is a modern class there will be no car list as such, but if in doubt please contact me to confirm if the car you are wanting to enter qualifies in this class or not.
But basically it can be any car which has taken part in a 24 hour Endurance race since 1990.

I will add the Class B Rules tomorrow

Wavegreen Good afternoon,


Class B is now called "Classic Le Mans (1950-1964)"
I have also included the 50's cars as well as the early 60's in order to widen the scope of this class.

 Basically this is an Open class for RTR, modified or scratchbuild cars. As the resin body build cars tend to struggle to compete with the lighter body cars, so  I am trying a concession this time for these cars to run slightly higher RPM motors to encourage them to be more competitive. It may or may not be sufficient, but we do like to see them entered in the proxy which I like to think is as much about diversity as it is about race wins.

So here are the Class B Rules

[attachment=23132]


And also attached here is a list of Eligible cars which is listed as having entered Le Mans.
There are probably some which I may have not have included in error, so if you have a model in mind which is not on the list I am quite happy to check the records etc.

There will few cars which competed both in the Le Mans during this period and in the Class D Interseries class (eg. Ford GT40 & Ferrari 330P etc). In this case I will decide which is the most appropriate class for the entrants car to be placed in ( NSR or Slot it Ford GT40's or Policar Ferrari 330P's will be placed in Class D ).

Class C cars Rules will be posted over the weekend.

Can I lobby for 1.5mm ground clearance for Class B and a Gentlemen’s agreement not to run the GT40 considering how wide it is compared to the other cars.

By way of an explanation, generally I get my guidance from the "Classic Slot Car Racing Association Rules, which specifies cars 1949-1962 as 2mm track clearance & 1963-1967 as 1.5mm track clearance.  But I have checked last years Le Mans event, and the similar classic class was given as 1.5mm clearance, so for consistency I have amended the rules above  Sun  


No need for a Gentlemen's agreement on the GT40's, that aspect has already been explained above, they will be included in the Interseries class D

Thank you…..and glad the GT40 will be in a different class as the remaining cars are fairly narrow.

Wavegreen Good afternoon

We have Daytona (1975-1980) Class C  Rules

This class is for Sports, Sports Coupes, Group 5 Cars (excluding prototype cars).
It is a fairly narrow era of cars but quite a diverse range of car types.

[attachment=23136]

And the car list of eligible cars
[attachment=23138]


Should have the final Class D Rules posted tomorrow.

I have added a few more cars to the Daytona (1975-1980) Class C - list of Eligible cars, a few which although did not (according to the records) enter Daytona but did run at Le Mans during those years, and fit the car type category.

Wavegreen Good Morning

Finally we have our InterSeries Class D Rules.
Having tested a couple of "Thunderslot Lola"  low clearance cars out on my Carrera track I have been able to run them at 1.0mm minimum clearance without problems, less than that and the cars are very likely to get beached on the track rises. So I have reduced the Absolute minimum Clearance for this Class D from 1.3mm to 1.0mm. However at 1.0mm minimum clearance I cannot be sure that some of the other Plastic track circuits might run into problems, so although I will accept cars at this low clearance level I will not guarantee they will run trouble free in the series on other host tracks.

So here is the amended rules for InterSeries Class D
[attachment=23140]

And the list of eligible cars is attached below
again I am open to allowing cars other than those listed should anyone think that a model not listed is appropriate for this class.

We now have 8 Rounds for this Proxy, so I have reduced the bonus points for fitting lights from 10 to 8 (one point per round for each car with lights)
Class B1) Fitting of lights is not mandatory but cars fitted with them working will be awarded 8 bonus points to the Teams joint score at the end of the series

Class A- Motors
All eligible cars must use a commercially available Mabuchi ‘S’ can (FC130) motor
with a manufacturers rating not exceeding 20K rpm at 12 volts. Motors may be mounted either in line or sidewinder configuration.

Class B- Motors
Motor with a manufacturer’s rating not exceeding 20.5K rpm at 12 volts.



I have also updated the Eligible car lists for Classes B,C & D. 
Class A  (Modified RTR Class). Any Endurance GT type car (GT1, GT2, GT3 etc), Prototype, or Group C car which has taken part in a 24 hours race. This class has to based on models available from Scalextric/SCX/Ninco/Carrera or Fly.
