      Ringwood XXXIII
      Proxy @ The RING
      January 25 – 29, 2021

      To kick off the Scratch32 2021 winter calendar we revisit the last of the gentlemen grand prix pilots by proxy – featuring models from 1950 through 1980 in four separate scratch32 open wheel classes:

      • 1950’s Grand Prix (50GP);
      • 1.5L Grand Prix (15LGP);
      • 3.0L Grand Prix (3LGP); and
      • 1970’s Grand Prix (70GP).

      There will be four separate races – one for each class.

      Anyone can enter – please register as many models as you wish in any or all classes! There is no limit!!!

      Please register your eligible models within this proxy event thread by replying below. If you do not have a Scratch32 account please email me at art@darthobbies.com to set one up for you. If your proxy model is not yet in our database please submit the online model registration form. Consult with our current Scratch32 class rules (but see below) to ensure your proxy models are eligible.

      To be eligible all proxy models must at minimum have a hand built/painted body or a custom made chassis and DArt club tires. Painted white kits are not eligible. Please remember that the Vanski motor is no longer available and therefore no longer eligible in our 1.5L Grand Prix class (15LGP) either – only the BWMS050 (or BWA slim can motor) is eligible now… our rules have not yet been updated to reflect this change…

      But for reality there is no ownership of any livery therefore duplicate models are permitted.

      Entry fee is $5 per model. DEADLINE is 6pm Thursday January 21, 2021

      Deadline to register and to receive your eligible proxy models is 6pm Thursday, January 21, 2021. This is also the deadline to receive the entry fee for all of your models. Proxy models may be dropped off on the front porch or mailed to The RING. Entry fees may be paid by cash (included with your model(s)) or electronically by a mutually agreeable method (plus processing fee if any). Please email me at art@darthobbies.com with drop off details, necessary mailing address info and/or entry fee payment.

      Proxy models and house models will compete together on track but official results for both groups will remain separate. Should there be overwhelming proxy participation then house models will be withdrawn.

      For this event grid position in each class will be based on qualifying @ 10.5v on the centre lane. Every class will be raced separately by yours truly in three parts: Stage one will have all the entries on the inside lane at 10v. Stage two will have all the entries on the middle lane at 10.5v. The final stage will have all the entries on the outside lane at 11v. Any off will result in a track call. It sounds very simple but my objective will be to go as fast as possible without any offs thus favouring more predictable models over those that may be quicker yet less stable in the corners.

      Throughout the event every stage for each class will be captured in three ways: by timing and scoring results, photographs and video.

      Proxy models are eligible for prizes based on their finishing position relative to other proxy models. Prizes will be distributed as follows:

      Ringwood XXXIII Prize Format

      All new models (whether proxy or house) will be eligible for and entered into our Scratch32 database after the event is completed.

      When the event concludes each model will be repacked and made available for return to their builder on February 1, 2021. Please make arrangements with me at that time…

      Good Luck!!!

      Hey guys hope you are all doing well. Sorry I’ve been tied up in Reno land for the last little while and missed this event which is a great idea. Hopefully I’ll be able to enter the next one. Cheers!
