PostSubject: Hi Everyone   Mon Dec 27, 2010 12:48 pm

Hi my name is John and i am 32 years old and have a passion for most motorsports and really like my slotcar racing aswell. I have lived on Brisbanes northside all of my 32 years and have now built myself a 2 lane Routed PBPro 6 Car Scalextric Digital Track in Burpengary which would be close to 30m in lane length with the longest straight around 4.1 meters long it makes for some exciting racing, especially when 6 cars are racing around the track all at once we run mostly 1/32 scale cars, like the Scalextric V8 Supercars, Porsche 911 GT3, Nascars, Classics like Pioneer Mustangs, Chargers, Scalextric Mustangs, Camaros, Toranas, i am also looking at running other classes as the numbers progress like Slot Its, NSR's, Scratch Builts ect. In 2011 i am looking at putting out a calendar of dates where i would like to at least have a race meet once a month or if people request more i would run them more regular. Keep an eye on the forums as i will post a calendar of dates in the next coming weeks.

Cheers John

No worries Foggy, you dont need to have a car to race at mine i generally have spare v8`s and porsches for people to drive if they dont have their own. Its generally better that way anyway so people can have ago and see if they like it first and if they show more interest set up there own cars from there.

PostSubject: Hey there   Tue Oct 11, 2011 10:57 am

Hey everyone,

Stumbled upon this site a few days ago. I live down in Jimboomba. Currently in the process of building a 14m long SCX Digital setup. I work for company in Brisbane Flying / Maintaining UAV's (Unmanned Aircraft). I'm currently over in Afghanistan until December. Looking forward to getting home and finishing off the layout. I love F1 cars and after watching Bathurst (very slow night over here) I'm now going to get in V8 Supercars as well. I'll need to convert some to digital and also get some decal off Patto to do some up. Hopefully I might catch up with some of you when I get back.
