    With the level of interest and the overall success of this new series we return to The Ring for a second chance for those who were unable to complete their pre-war models in time.

    So, another reminder for the class rules:

    PGP & PGP+ – Pre World War II Grand Prix (1900-1939)

    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.

    Please make sure to register all of your eligible entries within this thread and if your model is not yet in our database please submit an online model registration form. Details, links and photographs are strongly encouraged. :good:

    Great poster!! :yahoo:

    For Coppa D’oro II

    PGP #8 – 4.5L Bentley Blower (Sir Timothy Birken)

    PGP #84 – Alfa Romeo 6c 1750 (Tazio Nuvolari)

    PGP #4 – Bugatti T59 (Rene Dreyfus)

    will return. The Alfa and Bentley garages have been hard at work in preparation for an upgrade to larger motors. Clearance issues will probably not have been dealt with?? :wacko:

    Thanks for hosting the event.  Lots of fun and a wonderful selection of model cars from that era were represented.   Great enthusiasm by all who participated.  This class is turning out to be a club favourite.

    Cheers!
