      There are a number of people in the Sydney area working on getting a major Mini-Z race day happening.

      It looks like the venue will be up in Lithgow area and there will be something like at least 10 runners there!

      Steve from Trading Direct (swinternet@hotmail.com) is in direct contact with the club that runs the track and he and Derek (derek@ausmicro.com) are the best people to register your interest with.

      It will be a big day and hopefully with good attendance will become a regular event.

      So please register your interest NOW.

      i think lithgow is too far for most of us, especially myself and GT-ahh as we will have to have a long bus ride followed by about 4 hours by train which is just ludacris for some R/c racing.
      somewhere locally in Sydneys centre or the equvalent is the best place IMO

      Im with Shypo, somewhere this side of the Blue Mountains!! Though i’d only have a short bus ride, then four hours by train… still not good. 8 hours travel for 4 hours racing??
      Gotta come up with something… thinking…

      Sorry fella’s but I ain’t gonna drive all the way from Canberra to race in a car park or school lot.

      I think the reason Lithgow was chosen as it’s a ‘proper’ track????

      Is that right????

      Anyone?????

      Guys keep in mind that there is a running track in Lithgow. I know it’s in the boonies and we all understand the hassles getting out there but it’s a track that is up and running!

      Are the track at St Ives any good for Mini-Z?

      i havent seen the track in st ives but i would honestly rather race in a parking lot than travel to lithgow, man that is a trek and a half.

      TO ALL SYDNEY RACERS, RACE THIS SUNDAY THE 23RD OF FEBRUARY, THE PLACE WILL BE DECIDED VERY SHORTLY BUT THIS IS THE DATE FOR OUR FIRST RACE

      GT-ahh ~ I aint your honey honey!

      Lithgow……..
      Like Aaron says it’s out there and there’s no demand on anyone having to stress themselves to get there but at the same time we have to start somewhere.
      It’s a chance for organised racing and from what Aaron says, the club that’s looking at hosting it has a good base of new people with Mini Z’s and it’s a great opportunity for Ausmicro.com and TradingDirect to be out there and be seen.

      So I guess it comes down to this……
      We have been invited by this club, Ausmicro has enough of a reputation to have deserved this!
      Get off yer butts and support the forum that supports your hobby!!!

      As we saw in the merchandising posts, Aaron has chipped in 2K from his pocket, well now its your opportunity to show the world, or in this case Lithgow, that people like Aaron keep this sort of thing alive and well for a damned good reason.

      Show your support!
      Show em we know how to race!
      Make em eat our dust!
      Next time, we can call the shots a bit better and have the race on our turf and invite the Lithgow racers to come along.

      For you guys that are not able to get out there, how about ringing up your local hobby shop or r/c club and seeing if there’s any other clubs in Sydney or indeed anywhere in Australia that can run Mini Z’s on their tracks.

      So……..
      those of you that want a race closer to your home, do something about it!!!! Don’t always wait for someone else to do it, or indeed leave it to A&D to do all the hard yards. They obviously do plenty as it is!!!!!!

      *takes a bow and gets down off soapbox*

      Kitty: i would love to go and race at lithgow, i mean hell its a track:D
      its just such a long way for alot of us, its on average 4.5hrs to 5hrs of travel time, by the time we get there we would hav to leave again which is not cool.
      i want to go but its just a long long way. its good publicity yes but if we get at leats 10 guys in Sydney and we find a half decent track then thats the place to go, i wouldnt mind challenging the lithgow fellas tho

      I bet you aren’t travelling from Canberra to Sydney like I would be!!!!!

      So, sorry Shypo, but your excuse don’t cut it!!!

      I can understand people that won’t travel from say 100k’s away, but hell matey, I am travelling about 300k’s.

      So, next excuse??????

      Besides, surely amongst the lot of you, you can meet up and car pool??????

      Anyone out there help these poor fella’s out? After all, am waiting to see them put their money where their mouth is…..
      *heeheehee*

      Bring it on!

      kittykat, i thought by organising a sydney race meet with the peeps who cant and wont travel to lithgow, clearly shows that we r “getting off our a@se’s and doing something about it??? im with u shypo, id love to challenge the boys from the bush @lithgow every now and again but regularly race in the inner city of sydney city racers vs the country boys!! competition is healthy, ya? im sure i read or saw somewhere that lithgow is only run on a basketball court anyway? is this right lithgow?

      So you guys done anything yet?
      I understand not wanting to come to the boonies, for some racin with tha good ol boys 🙁
      So steve is settin it up a bit closer.
      We don’t care where we race as long as we race.
      A full weekend of racin in ACT sounds good to me.
      If ya can’t travel to far set sumpin up in your area we will travel.We also race all other scales of R/C so need a bit of notice to fit it in.
      get a square of carpet a box of chalk & a cardboard box to cut ripple strips out of. Walla a track. It aint hard to do.

      you talking indoor or outdoor Shypo?? Outdoor is dictated by weather, but Meadowbank park has a MASSIVE netball court, rubberised surface, about 100 square metres. A haven for Tamiya most weekends… Just a option. No cost except travel.

      The netball courts are at the end of Adelaide Street, off Victoria Rd. From the city, the second left after the Macca’s in West Ryde. At the VERY end of Adelaide St( down the hill past the roundabout!!!) there is a carpark, next to that, r.c. heaven!!:smiley2:
