So far there have been no meetings here at Gunnedah as the first one was canned due to lack of numbers and last weekends meeting was canned due to rain, the December meeting was supposed to have the NSW Sprintcars which are a mix of 360s and 410s.

I don't know of anyone in the SANSW running a 360.

And for those wondering about the Kings Royal Event...

Quote from Big Ryno

quote:
It gives me great pleasure to announce the “$10,000 to win” 2013 Modified Production Kings Royal, which will be the biggest and the richest Modified Production event to be ever held in Australia and its coming to Kingaroy Speedway in just over 12 months time, on 25th, 26th & 27th January, 2013.

This event will run a completely new, unique and never seen before format and racing will be held over 3 nights over the Australia Day Long weekend and in an attempt to ensure the event stay affordable for everyone to take part, there will be NO nomination fee and the club will have a special 3-day “heavily discounted” Super Pass that will save everyone a heap of coin.

The Kings Royal will incorporate time trials, multiple heat races and an all important 50 lap A Main and for those lucky 24 drivers that qualify will walk away from the weekend with at least $400. Not only will there be amazing trophies for the winners, but the trophy presentation will be fit for a king…

Let’s take a look at the format.

Night One – Friday 25th January, 2013.

Hotlaps
2 runs per car in groups of 5 cars
5 laps per group

Qualifying
2 runs per car in groups of 3 cars
3 laps per group
The Top 40 lap times from both qualifying sessions (overall merge) go straight through into Night Two
The rest of the field (so 41st fastest onwards), go into the Non-Qualifying heat races on Night One

Non-Qualifying Heats
Approx 10 cars per heat
1 round of heats
Starting positions based on qualifying times (overall merge)
Therefore 41st = pole in heat 1
42nd = pole in heat 2 etc

Qualifying Mini Features
Based on points from non qualifying round of heats and time trial lap times separating the tied point scorers
Mini Feature 1 - Qualifiers 1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19,21,23,25,27,29,31,33,35
Mini Feature 2 - Qualifiers 2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22,24,26,28,30,32,34,36

Top 10 finishes from each mini feature will transfer into the qualifying field for Night Two
For the remaining cars that don’t qualify for Night two, are finished until the last chance runs on Night Three

Night Two – Saturday 26th January, 2013.

Top 40 qualifiers (from time trials on Night One) + top 10 in each mini feature will make up the field for Night Two (So 60 cars only)

3 rounds of heats - normal draw
12 cars per heat - 12 laps per heat

Therefore 15 heat races on Night Two

Night Three – Sunday 27th January, 2013.

1 round of heats - normal draw (continued on from previous Night)
12 cars per heat -12 laps per heat
Therefore 5 heat races on Night Three

plus

Non-Qualifying Last Chance Heats - for the cars that didn't qualify for night two
Approx 10 cars per heat
1 round of heats
Starting positions based on qualifying times from Night One (overall merge)

A Main – 50 laps
Qualifiers 1 – 20 + “top 4 from B”

B Main - 20 laps
Qualifiers 21 - 40 + "top 4 from C" with top 4 finishes going into the A Main

C Main - 20 laps
Qualifiers 41 - 60 = "top 4 from Last Chance" with top 4 finishes going into the B Main

Last Chance Main - 20 laps
Top 24 from the Non-Qualifying Last Chance Heat Races qualify for this race, were the top 4 transfer into the C Main

Total Main Event Prize Money - $27500

Add to this the Night One & Two Minimum Qualifying and Non-Qualifying bonuses, and if close to 100 cars turn up for the event, the Kings Royal will pay over $35000.

With a whole host of sponsors lining up to get on board and a whole host of special activities planned for the entire weekend, this is going to be a sensational event and a “must see & must do” show for anyone that loves Modified Production racing.

So save the date, book your holidays and find some accommodation because the 2013 Modified Production Kings Royal will be sensational…

I'm a regular at Avalon, when the bloody weather allows a race meeting to start.

Also go to the Classic at Premier each year.

Have done the full speedweek WSS thing in the past but $$$ and the time involved gets in the way these days....

I wouldn’t say they were out of reach Ash. I purchased a Late Model 18 months ago from the States – turnkey with a fresh 362ci motor for $13,500. I really didn’t expect too much from the car, just a good learner car (especially having jumped out of a 430ci motor before it!) but the thing has turned out to be a rocket ship! Won a feature and currently leads the NSW Late Model Series at the half way mark. I'm a courier in inner Sydney and can easily afford to run the car.

I raced RSA Stockers in Sydney prior to that, similar to the ASCF (Victorian/SA cars) but they don’t run opposite, and they can run larger tyres should they wish. Great fun, and very cheap...although bang for your buck nothing can go past a Legend Car at the moment.

Well that explains your ability to drive sideways in a hurry then if Swift & Shift is anything to go by

With all the rain in Melbourne on Christmas day I arrived at Avalon expecting to see it very wet and was surprised to find it bone dry with not a drop of rain having fallen the day before.

Things get a bit hot during the B Main at Avalon Speedway last night.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEw3WxUd408&

Guess who's pit crew forgot to do up the fuel cap after an infield refuel when he progreseed from the C to the B Main.

Oh, as best I know he's fine.

EDIT: Added another angle.

At least they filled it up!
I know of a sprintcar driver who ran out of fuel mid way through a BIG race because the crew forgot to fill it up. He still has nightmares about it.

Sources on the infield tell me they remembered the fuel but had to borrow a funnel to pour it in with

Once again we've been shown the importance of fire resistant clothing in motorsport.
