QUOTE (LMP04 @ 13 Oct 2004, 15:35)Basically, you build a car, and send it all over the country (or world!) for someone to race for you on your behalf.

I'm sure you'll get more detailed responses, but in a nutshell, its build-a-car-and-send-it.

Hope that helps

Thanks! That's what I thought, but wanted to be sure.

QUOTE (McLaren @ 13 Oct 2004, 18:48)To take the proxy that I am organizing (for Small cars) as an example...

You see the rules on the net. You can see how others are doing and what tecniques they are employing to complete their car(s). You get to build something which will race in anger (combining kit bashing with racing). You get all the help you need in completing your car and make some new friends in the mean time.

When it's finished, send it off to the organizer or the first track owner and they'll organize some kind of event which will test all of the cars equally and eventually a final order will arrive. Sometimes points are added to the best looking cars in a concours event. Not in the case of my event


Next they will either be sent back to you or sent on to the next track where the whole process is repeated.

At the end of they day you will end up with more experience and possibly even a prize...

I suggest having a look at the Small Car Proxy thread as this is an excellent place to start...

So, the car that is sent off is also tinkered with by those racing it in proxy, with the hopeful result of a better and faster car. Sounds like there wouldn't be much sense in proxy racing a car right out of the box. Seems more suited to built cars or stock machines that have been modified in some way.

I assume, too, that on occasion a car wrecks and may be irredeemably damaged. Part of the risk of racing.

Thanks much McLaren. I don't have a car to proxy race yet, but I'll check out your race.

Your articles on car building are terrific.
And the popsicle racer is just ingenious. They look great... and so simple. That I may have to try.
