I'm looking forward to next month's Nascar race - it'll be my first championship round after missing out in February.

There have been a couple of questions about what people can run, so this is the graphic I did before last time:



So it's only the Tomy Racing Turbo with the grey bar magnet, not the SRT.

For the Tomy Super-G+ the old grey magnets count as stock magnets as they have appeared on the chassis. In F1 it's just the nearer black magnets - just to confuse things


As for the track, I understand that the banked curved will make an appearance next month.

Boo to racing when I can't come. You should all be ashamed!


The SG+ is very much the car to have on the Nascar circuit although I know one or two people were doing impressive things with the Lifelike T. Will be interesting to see if anyone will try a curveball and use a Tyco, LLM or Turbo. The Mega G would be a great choice. I want one!

Oh yeah and I have become a Twit so I can read what is happening during the evening!

Not long to go now. Sorted all the twetting problems out so that should all be running fine on the night for anyone following on Twitter. Project Gareth also looks to be working for tweets, photos and the scoreboard so I think a low key trial is in order on Wednesday.

Now to get some cars ready

No, its definately Project Gareth....

I'm really pleased how its all managing to fall together so far, especially since its all spiralling out from an Excel spreadsheet. Lots more ideas for the future too. I hope that RC can allow a similar sort of expansion.

I will leave you to talk Dave from RC into working with you on that.

I guess I missed out a comma in my last post, as in:

Good to see you are pushing on with the Project, Andrew.

Why is it, just out of interest, called Project Gareth?

Any idea what the track will look like (apart from black and oval shaped!!!) or is a "stocktake" needed before letting everyone have a sneeky peek????? If needed on the night my track is always avliable to replace any missing bits.

I can't believe you even needed to ask!

I'm looking forward to using the results of Project Gareth next week.

Remote slot racing is surely soon to follow in the June round which is going to be fantastic!

Latest news from Dave:

The oval will be a rounded rectangle with five straight sections in between two banked corners at one end and a duplicate at the other but completly banked in the straight section. Does that make sense? I have built a new straight banked section and if its successful I will make another section to make a uniformed layout for the next Nascar.
Looking forward to it

Good luck to everybody racing tonight.

If you can't be there tonight then feel free to check out the online beta Project Gareth scoreboard . Any and all feedback welcome, as I'll be too busy racing to check its working ok.

If you're at the race, you can keep track of the race results as they happen on your smart phone here. You can also upload photos directly to the scoreboard page. PM me for details or ask me tonight.

As diesel said, we're giving Project Gareth a trial run tonight


It's an amazing project and diesel has put huge amounts of work into it


Those coming to the race, please bring your smartphones and I'll give you an email address you can use to upload your pics of the evening to the Project Gareth page


I hope diesel has had time for some car prep too - he was pretty fast at the last Nascar race...
