Next R32 Race Night @ The Ring – November 1, 2017 @ 7pm

R32 classes scheduled will be NASCAR (NC), Modern F1 (F1S), Group 5 (G5) and 3.0L LeMans (3LM).

For the benefit of others you may choose to indicate if you plan to attend the next R32 event by signing in at R32 III – November 1, 2017 (although there is no requirement that you do so since the R32 race evening format is ad hoc anyway…) [Scratch32 events do however require registration.]

If you don’t have a copy of the R32 Rules & Guidelines you can download your copy from the DArthobbies ‘Events’ page or click here. Classes for races at The Ring will always be posted on the DArthobbies ‘Events’ page. The rules are the same as before with no restrictions on tire diameter for many classes, so dust of your cars…

Scratch32 Model Car Database

Some of you may have noticed that our Model Database has taken on a new look and is more complete (now with 82 entries). Entries are listed by race number but users can choose to re-order by any field, such as year, class, etc. Fields are also searchable. The MIN is listed for each entry and should be used to reference your listed models whenever registering for an upcoming event. The backend of this database is now streamlined so the online form will populate the database albeit after the data is reviewed.

Please check for your models and if any are missing (but did participate in a prior event) please fill in the online Model Entry Form. Please also ensure that the information pertaining to each of your models is as complete and accurate as possible. Some models are missing information.

Scratch32 Model Entry Form Updated

I’ve updated the online Scratch32 Model Entry Form to reflect the fields now found in our model database.

New ‘Drivers of the Past’ Sub-Forum Added

This new sub-forum provides links and articles (plus other resources) about some of the greatest (and not so great) pilots in sportscar and grand prix history. Harry Schell and Alfonso Portago are the first entries.

R32 Race Night @ The Ring

Due to demand – and on a trial basis – this fall The Ring will bring back R32 and begin hosting an R32 race night on the first Wednesday of every month starting THIS WEDNESDAY. Remember that this is a separate series from Scratch32 although the formats may have overlap.

This Wednesday, September 6 The Ring will host the following R32 classes: NC, TA, G5 & LMP/GT (plus an IROC Group C – time permitting). Doors open at 6pm. The focus of these Wednesdays will be on the primarily plastic based RTR classes not raced by the Scratch32 group…no need to register your cars as for Scratch32 events…

If you don’t have a copy of the R32 Rules & Guidelines you can download your copy from the DArthobbies ‘Events’ page or click here. Classes for races at The Ring will always be posted on the DArthobbies ‘Events’ page. The rules are the same as before with no restrictions on tire diameter for many classes, so dust of your cars…



There are still a few Porsche 550 RS Coupe body kits available for those that may wish to model one.
