It's a shame you are limited to such old Tamiya chassis because even though I have a couple of Tamiya cars, they are too recent to be eligible, and I don't fancy trawling eBay for an old chassis and NOS parts to get an eligible car up and running.

I can't see that an M-05, TT-02 or TRF418 would be an unfair advantage in their respective classes.

Will likely have to give this a miss, even though Cotswold is my "local" track.

If I may offer an answer, while I tend to agree that building a vintage car can be tricky the iconic cup is based on the Tamiya euro cup which ended in 2004. So to pay homage to it and to make it more authentic it is open to cars which would have been raced in it. Hence it being restricted to cars produced pre 2004. I'm happy to be corrected if this info isn't accurate.

If the Cup does continue I personally think it would be worth at least considering rolling the cut-off dates forward to allow newer cars in (obviously still Tamiya only). A big motivation for that might be the dwindling numbers of affordable "service" parts for some cars (try to find a stock TA04 diff pulley at all, much less one costing less than eleventy billion pounds) as well as the cars themselves. Of course Tamiya might suddenly start re-releasing on-road cars rather than just buggies but I'm not holding my breath there. The other thing is that chassis like the TA05 (in all its myriad variations), TB03 and FF03 are all somewhat orphaned at the moment as they don't fit in the vintage regs but they're now largely outclassed at club level too so they're not getting out so much. And spares support is still plentiful for them. Moving the clock forward a bit more and the same will apply to the TB04, TA06/7 (and even the M07 Concept). One of the things that got me back into on road racing was spectating at a Super Production Cup meeting and being amazed close (and how fast) the racing was among the 17.5 brushless FF03 cars. And I'm betting they didn't worry about age-brittle ABS plastic shock towers cracking at all (says the man suspiciously eyeing up his FF01). Just my two penneth, please feel free to disregard.

The Idea behind the series is to race cars that were raced in the official Tamiya Euro Cup.

Regarding a couple of posts above. The Iconic Cup is a vintage event for older chassis and that won't change any time soon.

Saturday Practice and Camping is now available at Round 2 of the Iconic Cup.

Practice is £10 for non-Cotswold members and Camping is £5 (£10 for Caravans). Pay on the day.
