Hi Steve,
Still waiting for you to confirm the model rules, I assume the same as next years W&W series? Are you going to use the 61 mm max width for the rear axle overall width?
Put me down for an entry, whatever rules you choose.
Regards Bill.

Hi Bill,

Thanks, Your added to the list. Regarding the rules and regs they will be the same as the Wales and West next year.

I will post them soon for drivers who won't be attending the Championship next year. As for the max width, I have spoke to Phil regarding this but I think the 61mm max width rule
sounds about right. I have just measured some of the cars and the Porsche is the widest by a few mill. So it makes sense to narrow the max width
of this car rather than widen the other cars this will stop axles being wider than the bodyshells.

Regards,

Steve.

Just to remind everyone its the WELSH GRAND PRIX this Sunday. Looks like its going to be a good
turnout. I think that Phil and the boys have extended the track for this event!!!! So should be interesting.

Hope to see you all there...............what else is there to do on a cold winters day on Sunday? Might as well play with toy cars.

Regards

Steve.

A big thanks to all who turned up to support the event. Judging by the comments everyone
Thoroughly enjoyed it. The cars looked and drove superbly. It was only of the best Welsh GP s to date I think.
These cars really are superb out of the box. The racing throughout the day was very close. I will post the results later on if possible.

Really looking forward to the Wales and West next year when we will get another chance to race this class!

Regards,
Steve.

Well done to Craig a well fought battle against Phil an early mistake in the a final by Craig saw Phil take the lead then halfway in
Phil came off and Craig regained the lead taking the championship win. The only driver in the history of the Welsh GP to win it twice.

Well done to the rest of the field who had great battles, Shaun Mitchell gradually made his way up the field with an under powered car which was gradually getting better and better
with each race.

Look forward to next year Welsh GP. In the meantime we wish everyone a very Merry Xmas and a prosperous New Year.

Don't forget to put FEBRUARY 19th 2012 in your diary's Round 1 of WALES AND WEST at NORTH STAFFS !!!

Best Regards,
Steve.
