After months of preparation and eager anticipation, the TSCC 2012 Flat Cap Trophy for Classic Saloon Cars finally gets underway with Round 1 on May 23rd. The championship entry list includes junior and senior members from the club, plus three proxy entries from Slotforum regulars; Pete Shepherd ('Scudbong’); 'pace1970uk' and Alexis Gaitanis from Greece. Junior TSCC members have also benefited from a generous donation of PCS chassis kits from Sean Fothersgill at Pendleslot, which in turn, has helped positively encourage interest in kit/scratchbuilding and kept costs to a minimum.

The following pictures are a few examples of cars built to compete for the trophy, most of which are TSCC members first ever attempts at self builds.


Mal's Datsun Bluebird (club member)


Graham's Imp (club member)


Mal's Ford Zodiac (club member)


Marc's Alan Mann Lotus Cortina (club member)


pace1970uk Datsun Skyline (proxy entry)


Pete Shepherd's Escort Twin Cam (proxy entry)


Alexis Gaitanis Fiat Abarth 500 (proxy entry)


Martyn's Lotus Cortina (club member)


Lee's Datsun Skyline (club member)


Paul's MK10 Jag (club member)


Tom's (Iron Man) Imp (club member)

A superb line up of cars for your new class and good to see such a variety of cars. Well done for spreading the scratchbuilding word and encouraging your club members to have a go, they have responded with some great work.

I'm not going to hi-jack Dave's topic, I'm sure the first race is next week, ill be running the race so I had better find out


My Jag fits just fits the PCS chassis, all of the cars must be on a PCS chassis. I am looking to buy something a bit smaller at the weekend.

I notice that Dave has not put any pictures up of his cars, it must be that our cars put his to shame


Cheers
Paul.

That's a nice looking line up Dave, thanks for posting the pictures, I really like the Bluebird, Martyn's Cortina and Tom's Imp. Good luck with the series, hopefully my Escort will continue it's good form it had in the warm up races


Thanks,

Pete

Thanks Paul.
I'll be rooting for Tom's Fraser Imp, closely followed by Graham's :- )
Being Scottish I have to support the Saltire, but... Graham's car looks like it has a transverse exhaust :- ) where Tom's dosen't :- (

Nice group of cars, lads. Well done. Personally, I love the Bluebird having grown up with one approximately that colour rusting away in the backyard.

Hope it's a successful race series.

A few images from Wednesdays round one meeting of the Flat Cap. A report of the event will follow soon on the Clubs thread.











The look of everyone's cars certainly captured the spirit of the series and a number of heats re-enacted some classic Coventry/Dagenham, Jag/Ford battles on the track.

Just finished the Ford Falcon I got at Gaydon, this is going to replace my Mk10 Jag.

Its a George Turner kit & its my first kit from him, very easy to prep & the quality is spot on.




The Jag ran well last week, but I don't think I can get much more out of it. So its time to see what the Falcon can do.

Cheers
Paul.
