      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;

      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

      It will be great to see the Auto Unions out on the track. B-)

      A few videos. The dual rear wheels may have been only on the hill climb versions of the car. Sound is amazing!! :whistle:

      Can’t wait to see your #5 Ken! Sadly #4 is still too far from ready to race tonight… so it is a scratch.

      Nearby allied bombing has meant that registrations from other automotive factories may have been scattered or lost – but time will reveal all. I presume several are under a self imposed cloak of darkness right now… :good:

      Luis was working on his Alfa and Auto Union.

      Luis just sent me an email with an update. His furnace broke down. He’s trying to get it fixed but likely won’t make it tonight.

      Repairs are being made to the Bugatti of Rene Dreyfus after his spectacular crash at the last Copa.

      With some effort from his mechanic Dreyfus will make an appearance in the #22.

      The Austrian Ski team will be making an appearance to cheer him on.

      The paint is drying. The decals are still drying. The glue is hardening/drying. Not even sure if it runs. PGP+ here we come. Elvis is in the building!

      Thank you for your kind words MIA. Technically a PGP+ car should have dominated. However, Both Art and you kept Wolfgang Weis on his toes with some very fast cars. Everyone feels bad for F1nuts because he had a loose nut behind the wheel. :whistle:

      Plus, Wolfgang got lucky. :wacko:
