Hi Ray,

the rules (funny quick translation by me) said:
3 class: Mini Can-Am, Sport, GT

Mini Can-Am: (just the Mini Dream Can-Am)

GT: Cucaracha all version, La Bostella, other Mini Dream cars (Mini A, Mini B, Mini C), Unicar "Barchetta"

Sport: all other thingies slot car
you can see the upper complete list (don't think it need to be translate)

The tecnical rule said:Original chassis, body also repro (very good the ones by Raynoda
), original can motor, no cobalt magnet, no shunted brushes, 80 mm max width, just sponge tires.

Mine cucs had a standard chassis and a super-Cuc chassis (the one in the movie).

You can see below the pictures showing the cars I brought there.

Simply rules, big friendship, a lot of smiles and dreaming eyes, a go back in the memory for everybody, for sure a very nice week end!

Ops (sorry: never posted a picture here, I need a little help for that; need i upload the images in a website before?)

Just a final note:

I never had a Mini Can Am and a friend, Stefano, gave one chassis to me as gift; during the race Stefano had problem with it's slot.

I gave him the La bostella spider to race and later the final i asked me to have it for himself: he had it as gift from me.

That is to expalin the "air" we breathed there

That beautiful Red Bostella was my Car in the Race, thanks to Angelo's kindness.

My Cucaracha got nearly destroyed after a brutal flight out of the track.

Very impressive that Red Mini Can Am: a perfect set-up allowed it to run very fast in this difficult track, despite a very standard Mabuchi 26D.

Nice cars boys ! Ray , I also love the Mini Can Am chassis --- very colourful , and a version of the Iso-fulcrum cuc chassis ! I won't say copy , as it has its own merrit , and differences ! But it is a very good performering chassis , and well designed ! Zig

Thanks Z !!! They really are a great car , low on the track ! My car has the original rims front and back , tyres have been changed ! The 26D motor installed , I rewound , and it is lethal ! Only worry with it , the body is showing signs of fatigue - it appears that when the original bodies were moulded , many different ingredients ( a few different polymers) , went into the mix ! To me , it appears to be polycarbonate , and the aging is very similar to it - it has that brittle look ! I was informed it isn't , so I will just reserve my judgement on that ! Zig
