Beautiful part of the world you are from, I shall never forget the view of the city from Signal Hill after a bottle or two of local wine with a couple of fine ladies. Or the cablecar ride to the top of Table Mountain. The people, the food, the beaches.....
Hey guy's, thanks for the comments. Yip, Cape Town is a beautiful City, and I can relate to the views after some wine with the ladies...
The hobby, or sport here, is pretty ok really, but because of our Kak exchange rate, products are so damn expensive, so it's not really as strong as it could be. Member numbers in the two clubs here in Cape Town are pretty low, and could be higher, but, there's always the dedicated few who are always there to race and play.
The Website I run will give you a good idea of the Clubs under our "official" national Organization, with a few wooden tracks all over the Country.
Clubs also race different classes from each other, but when we all get together for a Nats event, we race using the standard rules as per the association.
At club level, we mostly race a stock 1/24 scale class, with either Nascar, or Sportscars, and some clubs run F1 bodies too. It's a low cost setup using stamped chassis, champion etc, and Parma 16 D or Super 16 D motors. (Nats require the label to still be intact on the motor. Plastic classes are Plastic Touring cars, and Sportscars.
Pretty much that covers the scene here. I update the slotcars.co.za website almost weekly qwith info or news, reports etc, so you'll be able to catch up there as well.
Now, let me try and find my way into the appropriate groups on this forum guy's.
