I can confirm that PADD will return, with the same four drivers very probably. Name to be decided, but it will not be PADD.

The 6hr has up until now not had to address the issue of being oversubscribed, but may do next year. My opinion is that the six captains from this year should have first refusal up until the middle of April, and have until that time to put in a serious commitment to enter a viable team. After the specified date, other potential captains can submit an entry. These won't automatically be accepted on a first come first serve basis, Andy would have the right to vet the entries.

What does everyone else think?

QUOTE (Big Al @ 22 Aug 2011, 16:23) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>are the bodylist allowed for this event commercial plastic bodies, or are resin\plastic built bodies legal? Is there a weight limit etc?

Hi Al

Love the stuff you do by the way, sure Andy will get back to you but yes the kind of bodies you make will be legal for the 6hr, in fact they are ideal.

There is a lower weight limit but I don't know what it is yet, being the first year with the long chassis, I will be racing Andyslots at club tommorrow night, i'll give him a nudge and get you an answer.

PS: add me to the list of your potential customers over here, I voted for the lola, bit surprised 'another grey audi' won but i'll still buy one if you make them

Cheers

Marc

To all,

Currently, the only legal cars are the ones on the list, although this may be subject to revisions.

The current thinking is that all bodies are not to weigh less that the current Peugeot body which is around 4.5 grammes, although i will confirm this weight.

Bodies must be manufactured by either the process ofcasting or injection moulding and must be made of only resin or plastic.

Julian, Who makes the Panoz body?

I've found a way to do this, will it be legal (so long as they weigh over the minimum weight), it opens up a lot more body options.

He doesn't have any listed now though

The Panoz body is designed to fit on the F1 Turbo chassis - I believe this has a 1.7" wheelbase and a quick bit of web research confirms this.
It raced at Le Mans at the same time as a lot of the other cars in the body list http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panoz_LMP-1_Roadster-S so why isn't it eligible?
Also if it's such a heavy body then there's no benefit to using it so why not allow it.
Barry has some in stock, white ones and red ones - I've already spoken to him.

I've got two of them now, and as Deane says they are built like brick out houses, no way would the wing come off, unfortunatley the wheelbase on the 1.7 MG is slightly longer than the one of the Panoz body.

Time methinks to see if the venue can be obtain again, certainly between now and Christmas.

I have decided that the PADD team will run as Race Control AFX next year, as one of the few teams (I suspect) to keep it's line-up the same as in 2011.
