Sounds great and I hope to get an entry for both classes (WRC & Classic).

Assignment of numbers and parc ferme a good idea, but I'm not sure I understand the marshalling rule though. I guess it will make sense on the day and after all, we are only playing with toy cars.

Thanks for writing out all that stuff Roly. Hope you're feeling better.
I may have to un-retire a Celica to keep the 307 company.
Look forward to seeing you there Scott.

Yup, it sounds like a fun event, and I've entered in the WRC class. I'll probably use a Xsara, I think. It seems there will be no practice, so you just line your car up and go for it...

See you there

Thanks for the map Scott. Now I won't have to scare the locals by oozing up beside them and winding down the window ...
Tested my Ninco 307 at Eastcote last night. An excellent car which is almost as fast around their track as a BMW M3. Motor glued in, original wheels and tyres straight out of the box, even with the added rolling resistance of the 4WD rubber band. Very impressive.
Roll on Sunday week!

Hi sunk...
Ninco track has quite an abrasive surface, more so than Scalextric classic track at least.
I hesitate to take issue with McLaren but I've generally found that Ninco tyres work best on their own track. One exception being very fast GT cars that benefit from Proslot or Slot.it P3 tyres, but that's a long way from rally cars.
Too much grip will tip a tall, narrow rallymobile over so a certain amount of experimentation may be in order. There will be a track at the meeting available for testing car set-ups, etc. but I understand that time on it will have a small charge attached.
For what it's worth my Ninco 307 handles really well on the stock grooved tyres it came with.
Regards,
Lowrider.
