    Player’s 200

    September 23, 2019 – The Ring

    NOTE: The date and start time are different from the poster – NEW: September 23, 2019 @ 7pm…

    This will be our inaugural Scratch32 Player’s 200 – a new spin off series from CANAM Thunder which will incorporate SCCA/USRRC models that raced between 1960 through to and including 1965. Models that raced in the subsequent CANAM series in 1967 (and/or thereafter – noticed that we skipped 1966) are excluded. As long as the model competed in any sanctioned SCCA/USRRC event between 1960 through 1965 (subject to the exception above) are eligible – and period fantasy liveries are permitted as well. Since it doesn’t matter what class a model actually raced in this is a very wide net. Models must be ‘scratch built’ meaning that either the body or the chassis (or both) must be original creations.

    As in CANAM Thunder we’ll divide these models into two sub-classes:

    • (PC) – the usual ‘low power’ motor (see our list of low power motors in the Scratch32 Rules);
    • (PC+) – unlimited motor (if it doesn’t qualify for PC then it falls into PC+ and this can range from any vintage motor to anything custom made, sealed or not sealed.

    Regardless of group or class every model that takes to the track MUST have DArt club urethane tires. Hard bodies are also a requirement. That is it. If in doubt ask. Any tire that adversely affects the performance of other participants will be checked and/or result in exclusion.

    No ‘master list’ of eligible models or entries will be provided since it is easy enough to find much of this information freely on the internet. Do some research first and then ask if you have questions. It is expected that you share with the group some of the history of the models. Register your eligible models within this thread.

    While not an endurance event each model will race for a cumulative amount of approximately 24 minutes in multiple heats. Models will also be penalizing for every second off per heat with the loss of a lap – so make sure both you and your models are solid runners for this one!

    To register your models for this event just reply within this thread and make sure to specify whether your model is a PC or PC+ class entry. The number of entries allowed per builder/class will depend on how many models are registered.

    If you don’t have a scratch eligible model and still wish to participate you are welcome to register a RTR model with slow motor PC (or not PC+) as a placeholder.

    Good Luck!

    The Hot Rod Garage has prepared the following entries:

    Lotus 30 #4 – Greenlea Snodgrass – 64SP004-1KM (SP)

    Lotus 30 #6 – Jerry Crawford – 64SP006-1KM (SP+)

    Gents,

    Please disregard the stipulation that in order to be eligible models must not have raced in the CANAM series in 1967 – this may inadvertently capture some earlier USRRC/SCCA models. The purpose of the exclusion was to bar some models that were more identifiable with the CANAM series, such as the Lola T70. We’ll need to fine tune this over time but for now kindly resist any temptation to register models such as the Lola T70, Ford GT or the equivalent. I know there is some grey area here but bear with us for now till we sort out the series further. Those of you who already have 1, 2 or 3 eligible models perfect for the series should not need to entertain other models in this grey area. If you do not have an eligible model (a likely very rare exception) and only have one in this grey area please contact me directly to discuss your predicament. As always – more flexibility will be afforded to newbies… :wacko:

    A place-holder is on loan from the Hot Rod Garage to a driver by the name of Luis Norris. Distant cousin to Chuck maybe?

    1961 Austin Healey 3000 #35 (SP)

    Best of luck Mr. Norris.

    Luis is now the new owner of the Austin Healey. It no longer resides at the Hot Rod Garage. Congrats Luis!

    May the force of Chuck Norris be with you!
