Happy Christmas to all - sorry to miss the last two meetings but was a bit worried about the weather (I even prepared some cars for last Thursday but, much as I like coming down, didn't want to run the risk of spending the night in Liphook). Also without the gas turbine it can be a bit nippy, and with it, well there's something of an oxygen shortage, so it's either death from hypothermia or hypoxia!
Bit confused as I remember being asked whether it was an open class - implied that it mattered! I hope you're not going to be bringing these new MSC jobbies or I'm going to be massacred (more than normal). Withdraw that - given that last night's last class was the 2nd lowest possible score for me, please bring MSCs and give me an excuse!
I was mistaken about the Cooper King Cobra being a development of the Bruce MacLaren Cooper Oldsmobile. The King Cobra was based on the Cooper Monaco sports car, but the Cooper Oldsmobile was a rebuilt Cooper T53 F1 car.
What that means is that the only cars eligible for the Revell TT class are as follows:
Shelby Daytona Cobra coupe
Ferrari 250 GTO LM.
I've been persuaded to open up the Fly Prototype class to include Hornby cars. I thought we had run the class before, but it turns out that may have been at Bolwextric, so there are people without cars.
So class 2 is now Fly & Hornby modern prototypes. Only standard cars, no GTs or funny tyres. Basically if I see a Hornby car winning, I'll be very suspicious and might have to get the scrutineer's hat out of the back of the cupboard
I've got a voting slip for you for the new system. Deadline for handing it in is not till 12th May, so plenty of time to consider your top ten classes - barring any you have already successfully picked this year.
