On Tuesday I was testing cars for this weekends Flandres meeting. I ran a variety of cars on both tracks using my Truspeed controller with no problems at all. I haven't done anything to the controller. It'll be interesting to see how I get on with it next time I can make it to a club night when there are more people using the track.

Cheers

Hi John,

I know there were issues with the power at Presto Park this past weekend (I think that the power tap cables are only 5-amp wire and need to be upgraded), but did you try your Truspeed controller and did it work?

With kind regards,

Russell

Hi Russell,

I did use it and apart from power surges when other cars lifted off I didn't have any problems at Presto. I did notice in at least one heat, someone else was using a Truspeed controller too.

Because of work and other stuff i haven't managed to get to rockingham for some time.

cheers

John

Thanks to all who supported the event and congratulations to David Farrow on a supremely successful day.

Next years event will take place on Sunday 1st September.
It will probably be for the same classes but we may have a change as we have run these classes for several years now.
Do not post entries for next year on this thread. I will start a new one in the New Year.

Cheers.
Mick.

PS. We have decided that the new track surface is just too rough and plan to smooth it down before next year.
I will also be making a small change to the track wiring which may solve the problems with some Truespeed controllers. I have been in contact with Steve Hills but he can see nothing wrong with the existing track wiring. We have had no similar problems with any other electronic controllers and Matt and John Underwood continue to use their Truespeeds without any issues.

Hi Mick.
Thanks for posting the full results, much appreciated.
I know can be a bit of a bore to get it all typed out, but it does finish the thread off nicely.
Quite pleased with 4th O/A, but just beaten by Mick L for top visitor...must try harder next year with a new saloon to get a better concours vote.
Regards and thanks,
Bill.

Hi All,
As Ian Howard has decided to hold a round of the 'Heart of England Grand Prix' series on the 1st Sept 2013 I will, this time only, move the Rockingham Classic meeting back a week to Sunday 8th September in order to avoid reduced attendance at either or both meetings.
There are no other meetings that I know of on that date and Goodwood have confirmed that the Revival Meeting, which I know may of you try to attend, will be on the 13/14/15 September 2013. I hope this change is acceptable to all our regular entrants.
In future years the Rockingham Classic meeting will go ahead on it's usual date of the first weekend in September unless it clashes with the Goodwood Revival.
I will start a new thread for next years event in the new year.
Cheers.
Mick.
