Im all for new classes and all that, but a lot of people come to Caldicot for the kind of tracks that are built each week.

Just my 2p worth

For the people who think they couldnt handle a caldicot style track :

Thumbs up I'm In lets get it on!!!

Been reading up online about these for durability etc, there are quite a few tamiyas versions of these that would qualify as vintage aswell

My choice of car is a lancia delta integrale in martini colours Quick pete say yes or no about this series as i'm about to hit " buy it now" if we can race em

I saw that Integrale shell as well, very nice! Buy it Dave, buy it!!
If everyone that has voted yes on here turns up with a car then that's more than enough for a race

I like the idea of a heat of these on your astro track!

That was kinda the idea really ...

We have run the Mini's at WORM with a summer rally championship, and it's been ace ! Lots of fun, peeps laughing as they get elbowed off track .... full contact racing but no nasty stuff .... just close and personal

And hopefully 10th scale can be better, lots of cheap retro bodies on ebay and cheap TC ...

Almost like a British version of SC racing and thats gotta be a good thing !
