Newsflash SLC Racing and Silver Arrows join forces

Post by TargaSL » Wed 01 Sep, 2010 10:25 am

As you guys know i am setting up a professional relationship with the silver arrows guys

I am looking at going to Europe to do a mud and slush bash maybe next year

they don't have any track cars so the Nurburgring will need another approach, probably hire a local and a chase car

the silver arrows guys joined with SLC racing after they binned their car last race

i will find out the $ to hire a FIA compliant car for a Europe rally, anyone else want to save up and join Daniel and I to do the Merc thing of a life time? might even get to meet Bjorn Wladergarde or Walter Rohl

as well as this i think all the club racers should meet up at Bathurst next year

I'm very envious. I'd love to be able to experience enjoying motorsport in a well prepared car such as one of those rally SLCs however my budget doesn't extend that far. I am happy to just be able to enjoy my stock 500SLC in classic and historic rallies here.

It would be nice for all the motorsport enthusiast MB owners to get together at something like the Bathurst Easter meeting, even if not all were there to actually compete. We should see what interest there is and get something organised.

Octagon (targa orgainsers ) have become rather a pain so we are not intending on running Tassy next year.
as you can hear we are looking at going to Europe either car hire or ship ours instead

This leaves our April free for the Bathurst thing

I woudl say that
Fotographa
500SLCinOZ
Sel450
and us shoudl be starters as it would be logistically and financially OK for all of us

It woudl be great for Giles to come but the WA trip is an epic (as it is most of the way to south Africa)
anyone else be a starter or just wnat to join in as pit crew or something?


who knows

how to enter
conditions
costs
CAMS license requirements
format

I saw SEL450 was up there this year (with some good pics too)
was anyone else?

Thanks for the invite Paul, but a East African Rally may be closer.

Bathurst would be great, but I have one more eastern state trip coming in January, a family wedding. I've done three east coast trips already in the last twelve months and with two teenagers in high school it's probably not going to happen. Nothing like spending 30K a year on your kids education, but they're benefiting from it.

But if my fortunes change I'd be there in a flash.

Regards,

Funny you should mention that the Silver Arrows guys are getting 2 cars ready for the East Africa Safari
given that Giles could probably commute and already has a dirt setup that would easy for you, and only a paltry $25 k entry fees (not to mention the 2 truck/1 helicopter support team)

have any of you guys seen

Since there is no shortage of f*kwits in this world - these a$$holes are trying to shut down the April FoSC Bathurst event. Based on it's losing them revenue.
April FoSC event is only $600 or so entry fee... these ba$tards charge $3500! Easter time they get 800 or so competitors and it's fun... these chumps are probably just rich farkrs with too much cash. No consideration for the people building club level sprint cars on a low budget.

A$$holes: http://www.trackcorp.com.au/

Good People!: http://www.fosc.com.au/Pages/Bathurst/FoSC@Bathurst.htm


I think the april event should still go ahead, cause if it get's cancelled there will be about 850 drivers searching for the Trackcrop wanker.

I'll be there next year........hopefully.

trying to make out your post

is there some drama in who runs the event next year with the cost differences?

so i guess you need a CAMS L2S license
what race format did you run?

pics came out quite good
did you get any video to make a TubeFace thing?

No.. there's 2 different events. 1 later this year and 1 in April next year. Though the event later this year run by Track-corp is trying to get the April event (which is the club level event that's cheaper and you need a Level 2S for) cancelled.. cause it's cheaper than the track crap one.

If they get the April event (run by FoSC) cancelled.. Bathurst looks to lose a truckload of revenue and there's a lot of people that will be gearboxing the driveway of the head of Track crap.

Got vids, I think you're a subscriber to my channel of tubeface awesomeness. Scope it out.. OR you can go to youtube and search for "better than billerwell" and it'll come up. :smile:

Guys, quick question, it's hard to tell from the FoSC website, for the April event, what are the requirements, car and driver wise?

Is it no roll-cage? CAMS licence required? I'm certainlt dead keen to get there with the 026, just need to start planning now if there is anything I need to get in place. If roll-cage IS required then I'm probably a no-go for participating, but will come and watch.

Standard CAMS Level 2S requirements.. no roll cage required. Street registered cars will get less scrutiny. If not road registered they grill it more.

It's like any other supersprint event really.. CAMS L2S, Approved Helmet.. FIA approved Fire proof race suit, gloves etc.. and Fire extinguisher.. the supp regs and all that come out closer to the date - but yeah.. just like any other.

Cost last year was $600 odd per entry (with 6 man team). And pit hire garage was.. .can't remember will have to look up.. think it was about 500 or so for 1 garage which is basically 100 per person. And you can fit at least 4 cars at a time in there. Or 10 trabi's. :laughing6:

It's technically about time consistensy being a regularity relay.. but once you get on the mountain you just wanna put in the best time you can.

Think this will make for a new thread.. I'll start a new one to get interest moving for April.

A CAMS Level 2S (S being for speed) licence requires nothing more than being a member of any CAMS affiliated club and filling out the form and paying your money. I get my L2S through Thornleigh Car Club simply because I've been a member there for over 30 years. I could get it just as easily through the Classic Rally Club of which I am also a member.

On the subject of CAMS licences, there is also a cheaper version, a L2NS (for no speed). That one will allow club motorsport that excludes speed events (supersprints, lap dashes, hill climbs, etc). For the under 18s (juniors), CAMS also have cheaper licenses, a L2NSJ (which they can get at age 12) and a L2SJ (which they can get at 14).
