The 2011 Australian Scalextric Grand Prix is on again over the weekend of July 15, 16, and 17th with Sunday being the Grand Prix for both Junior and Open.
Apologies for the delays announcing dates but we have been awaiting confirmation of television coverage leading up to the event with major Australian television broadcaster Channel 10 News.
We plan to run an auction, barbeque and practice night on Friday 15th July.
On Saturday 16th July we will hold a 3 Hour Team Endurance Race which includes 3 drivers in 6 teams. This event is limited to 18 drivers.
Sunday 17th July is the Grand Prix. The Junior Grand Prix starting just after 10.00 am with the winner getting a free entry into the Open Grand Prix. We expect this to commence about midday. There are 24 Junior places available and 33 Open places.
A free sausage sizzle will run most of Sunday, and there will be radio control demonstrations and free drives from Traxxas and Team Losi with a couple of RC brands yet to confirm their attendance. All shop items will be on sale so bring your credit cards.
Clontarf is a beachside suburb 30 minutes north of the Brisbane CBD. There is cheap accomodation and plenty of restaurants to visit, so we hope we can attract more distant racers. Any assistance or information you require can be supplied by request.
The Alain Prost Williams 1993 Formula 1 car (C3094) is the GP car to be raced this year. All cars will be pre-tested and we have back up cars if cars fail prior to running of the event. Early entry is required as we will be supplying the car and a Toolkit to all early entrants.
Trophies and Scalextric Slot Car Sets will be awarded to winners and trophies and Scalextric cars for minor places.
Great racing awaits all the competitors who will be joining us on the day.
