Default Melton Model Show - 25/26 September

Hi guys,

We have been invited back to race at the Melton Model Show again this year, which takes place on the weekend of 25/26 September. Last year this was a great event, featuring model aeroplanes, helicopters, slot car racing and of course ourselves racing model cars for 2 days.

It all takes place on the field adjacent to Tesco in Melton Mowbray, so lunch is easy to find! The racing will be free and informal for all classes of off-road RC cars, all scales and either electric or IC powered. Last year we had 1/10 electric buggies, 1/10 electric trucks, 1/8 IC trucks and even a couple of 1/5 petrol buggies.

We have some varied events in mind for this year, ranging from the usual 5-minute racing format to some other more creative ideas prompted by some informal discussions in the pub last Friday, based on the theme of an "RC Olympics":
  • RC high-jump
  • RC long-jump
  • RC triple-jump
  • RC hurdles
  • RC team relay
  • RC team pursuit
  • RC bungee-running (OK, it's not an Olympic sport but it should be fun)
  • RC egg & spoon race (again, not an Olympic sport, but it jolly well should be!)
  • We decided that the RC javelin was probably too dangerous for a public event.
So, if you're free then put the date in your diary for the weekend of 25/26 September.

Just change the weekend that you move then you plonker.

I have 'borrowed' some ramps that are even bigger than the mega ramp of death for this event. They are so big I have also had to borrow a mercedes long wheelbase hightop sprinter to fit them in, and I am not joking.

The idea of jumping out of the back of the big bomber has been suggested...

Don't go back to School mate you'll end up having to sell your car to fund nights out and new pants.

So, how are we getting all the kit there next weekend?

Lloyd, are you still bringing the mega-mega-ramps-of-death with you?

The outdoor track markings are in the container at the rugby club, so we'll need to load them up ideally on the Friday night before I guess, then collect the ramps from the shed at the school.

Are we still using Wes' van or not now he's gone & got married today?
