COPPA D’ORO VI
Pre World War II Grand Prix (1900-1939)
PGP & PGP+
This Scratch32 favourite finally returns and promises to have the biggest field yet… Make sure to bring your eligible scratch built models from the Golden Era of motorsport! This grid is divided into two sub groups:
- PGP; and
To be eligible all models must meet the following scratch32 criteria:
PGP1. Eligible Models: Any model that competed in a state or club sanctioned road, rally or endurance race or Grand Prix anywhere in the world before 1939. Later models with low streamlined bodies will comprise the PGP+ sub-class with no minimum clearance;
PGP2. BWMS050 ‘low power’ motor in an inline configuration;
PGP3. Wheels – must not exceed 16.5mm in diameter x 5.5mm in width. Inserts or wheel detail must be period correct and resemble original car;
PGP4. Maximum Overall Tire Diameter – Front and rear tires must not exceed 23mm in diameter. Rear tires must be DArt club urethane tires;
PGP5. Minimum Clearance:
- PGP But for the guide/guide sleeve/tube, wheels/tires & crown gear no part of the chassis, chassis components or body may be less than 5mm above the surface of the track; or
- PGP+ There is no minimum clearance requirement but for G19 (see the Scratch32 rules & guidelines);
PGP6. Maximum Width/Track – The width of front and rear rolling assemblies may not exceed
- PGP 54mm; or
- PGP+ 50.8mm;
in width excluding fenders, inserts, nuts or knock offs which may extend beyond – within reason.
On presentation to the grid our ‘Lego’ height gauge will be used to measure minimum clearance (PGP) along with new width templates (PGP & PGP+)… models failing either test will be scored & classed separately – as either PGP* or PGP+* and no penalty will be applied.
Please make sure to register all of your eligible models within the event thread here and if your model is not yet in our database please submit the online model registration form.
