I have found some softish rubber tyres in a bits box, I'm certain they're Scaley however there's no writing on them at all, so I'm not sure what they came off

They seem to work almost as good as the Ortmann

Unfortunately due to ongoing toilet renovations works at the Collingwood Centre, Great Barr Rounds 7&8 will be postponed until Sunday 30th September 2012.

A new official entries thread will be published at the beginning of September 2012.

My apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause.

Ian Howard (Championship Organiser).
