Proxy Application Form- to be made available in June

Car Entry

Entrants are now able to enter 2 cars for separate events of the 3 for a limited period. This will be initially restricted to 20 entry places, and the remaining places will be allocated for single car entries. Should there be a shortfall in entrant numbers the possibility of increased number of two car entries could be extended.

However there is no Team award for two car entries in this Proxy
It is intended that we should have 10 entries for each of the 3 Events in the programme, or 30 cars overall.

Entry fee is £15 for one car and £20 for 2 car entries

What’s your definition of lightweight body?

#3

Are rigid fibreglass bodyshells still allowed as there's no mention of them in this version of the rules? 

And what's the difference between Class A car with B&W chassis and a Class C car with B&W chassis?

Life is like a box of Slot cars... Cool Drinkingcheers

Basically any NSR, Slot it, Thunderslot, Sideways or similar Procar body, and any 3d printed body. 
eg TA71 bodies are extremely light, the Porsche 904 Revell body is around 12gms and the same TA71 version is about 7gms.

I would suggest that without the added brass chassis location plates and the interior the weight of the TA body would be significantly less.

The body of the Revell body is 16.5gms with the standard interior.

Yes I have included the Fibreglass bodies, it was mention under bodies section but not carried over into the Class A definitions.
Class A allows Resin or Fibreglass bodies to be fitted with B&W or metal chassis because the Cast body weight is generally heavier than Mass produced bodies of Class A.
Class C Procars are by definition those with lighter mass produced bodies (usually around 5gms lighter) than their home based RTR body equivalents. And similarly 3d printed bodies by the nature of the process are lighter than their Cast body equivalents.

And 14 and change with a lightweight interior on a Revell 11.8 grams if you “lighten” the body.  I’ve done it.  You can’t race a car without the body mounted and if I didn’t post that picture on Facebook you wouldn’t have it. My sidewinder version finished 5th so I’m not crushing anyone. You made it clear you don’t want these cars in your proxy.  It’s your proxy.

I have absolutely nothing against TA71 bodies being used or the Porsche in particular, but they are made to be "lightweight"  intentionally to be more competitive than mass produced types, which if they are used with the associated 3d chassis is not particularly an issue for me as it is reasonable competitive combination.

What I find concerning is that if these lightweight bodies (including those of the NSR, Thunderslots etc) are run with B&W or metal chassis that is a significant bigger advantage over the same models without metal chassis.

Thanks for the clarification….of your thoughts. I assume the Porsche 904 Carrera or Revell bodied car on a brass chassis meets the criteria to run Event 1 as a Class car?
