Scott’s Rods - QUEENSLAND RACEWAY - 2014 ROUND 3 TIME ATTACK SERIES

Thursday June 26

Hey Guys,

The Morning Session is now booked out with a waiting list. I need everyone to pay this week as I will release unsecured places to the waiting list on Monday. The PM session has plenty of room still. If you want to join us, please get booked in now !!

2014 JAPAN TRIP

The Japan trip is taking a lot longer to sort out than I originally thought, the devil is in the details as they say. Unfortunately the Fuji Drive experience has become impossible to arrange for this trip. We need at least 10 people to make the trip feasible. The cost is looking like $4500 plus insurance which I am still to sort out. If you are 100% coming on the trip if I can get the final details sorted please let me know by Friday, as I have to see if it is worth pushing on. The other option is to make the trip a 2015 plan and have the year to get all these details ironed out. Please let me know. Thanks.

AWD CONTROLLER PROJECT

The custom AWD Controller I built for Mark Berry’s 2012 Time Attack R34 GTR has now found a new home in the Croydon Racing Developments R34 GTR. They performed the install last week and had the first test day on Sunday. The driver said he has never had so much traction. The next step is to fine tune the controller for his car, as we are testing using Mark’s settings from WTAC. It’s good to have the controller back racing again. Croydon now have some future projects in the pipeline I will probably be helping with. I will keep you posted.

Here is a link to some in car footage.

TIME ATTACK end of Year Event

I’m thinking of running a Saturday Nov 8 full day event with trophies and prize money. Like a big version of the Jap Nats. Full day of circuit and the Shoot Out at the end. Let me know if you like the idea and if you have an idea for a name for the event. I was thinking “Time Attack Shoot Out”.

DRAFT ITINERARY

I have been working hard with my contact in Japan to come up with an itinerary that mixes Performance Cars, the Tokyo car scene, workshop tours and the feature Super GT race at Fuji International Speedway. Along with days to explore the vast culture available in Japan.

The final schedule is being put together this week along with prices and will be available soon. I wanted to get this email out so anyone considering the trip could see the dates and the great Itinerary planned and get their passports, days off and budgets in order. I am expecting this trip to be under $5K including flights, accommodation, private charter bus between venues and all entry fees. Once finalised I will need numbers locked in by the end of this month to secure bookings. If you have any friends you think may want to join us please pass on the details. There will be a capped number of final participants.

  • Thurs Aug 7: Tokyo Car Scene Day 1, Performance Workshops, Car Museums, Free time to explore Tokyo in the afternoon and into the night.
