Le Mans Classic is the weekend of the 7th/8th so no clash there
I came accross these in the workshop while I was looking for something else, had them for a few years (I didn't build them) but there has never been an event that they would be suitable for, I know they are pre 1950 but is there any chance that they might be ok for this event
Especially as I have now got some suitable Ortmann tyres for the Gilmore special!
I found this line in the rules which seem to predict that something like this might crop up for this class, "If, however, 1/24th scale racing proves popular then the standards can be expanded to cater for other periods"
I've checked out the cars and the geen #4 car is a Monroe, driven by Gaston Chevrolet to first place in 1920, I'll motorize this car but I think it will be too high and narrow to run at all well.
The #5 car is a Gilmore Speedway Special (Wetteroth chassis) driven to first place by Kelly Petillo in 1935 the first ever win for the four cyl. Offy engine.
This should convert quite well I think
I can't get on the CSCRA website so perhaps you may know, are angle winders ok in the Grand Sports class?
I have a Ted Martin built Lola T70 that uses one of those modern German Meccano type chassis and was hoping it may be ok to use.
Thanks Mick, so the anglewinder is ok but now reading the rules I see there is a 3mm min ground clearance rule!
No way will it be legal then, 3mm seems a bit much of you are using modern components such as the Meccano type chassis this car has, almost impossible to achieve without putting oversized wheels and tyres on I would think.
Oh well back to the drawing board
