      COPPA D’ORO VII
      Pre World War II Grand Prix (1900-1939)
      PGP & PGP+

      This Scratch32 favourite 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
      • PGP+.

      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.

      Actual or period fantasy liveries are permitted with appropriate racing numbers. Period fantasy liveries must use liveries/colours/fonts used in that era (ie. an Auto Union with a french blue livery entered by a french pilot is period correct while the same car painted in a candy apple red for an Italian pilot would not be…).

      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 this thread and if your model is not yet in our database please submit the online model registration form.

      Details, links and photographs are strongly encouraged!

      Deadline to register your entries is midnight Sunday December 12, 2021.

      We will forego any food but bottled water and pop will be supplied.

      Only fully vaccinated participants please. Please bring your mask.

      Good Luck & Get Building!!!

      #4 – 1936 Auto Union Type C piloted by Bernd Rosemeyer in the 1936 German Grand Prix [NEW]. Rosemeyer would go on the win the race finishing just over 8 seconds ahead of team mate Hans Stuck and also set the fastest race lap. Auto Unions would finish 1st, 2nd, 4th and 6th.

      After appearing to accept it, the web site seems to have blown away my initial submission for the race: So,

      1. Auto Union Type C

      2. Bugatti type 59

      3. Alfa Romeo 1750 Grand Sport

      4. Blower Bentley.

      I’ll try again later and hopefully this one goes through as a place holder.

      Garage Lyons will also enter 1930 Bentley Blower 4.5 L, purchased a few years back from the works team; been under repairs after being shunted in the most ungentlemanly fashion at it’s privateer premier.

      So third time lucky?? For Coppa Doro VI:

      1. Auto Union Type C

      2. Bugatti type 59.

      3. Depending on time, if only to run a few laps with Art’s lovely Alfa, an Alfa Romeo 1750 Grand Sport driven by Tazio Nuvalari.

      4. If only to grace the pits, 1935 Blower Bentley driven by Sir Timothy Birken.

      Couldn’t seem to sign up in the event announcement so:

      1. My Type C Auto Union, which seems to have disappeared from the data base, will be there.

      2. 34PW004-MA 1934 Bugatti T59 driven by Rene Dreyfus will race.

      3. Time permitting, and if only to make a few laps with Art’s lovely Alfa, 31PW084-1MA  a 1931 Alfa Romeo 6c 1750 GT Driven by Tazio Nuvalari will arrive. They will look spectacular together.

      4. And perhaps just to grace the pits, 30PW008-1MA, a 1930 4.5L Blower Bentley driven by Sir Timothy Birken will fill the transporter.

      That’s some time lag??!! Sorry to hear about the site issues, but… that was a great field last night. Thanks for hosting Art.

      Pits were overflowing with wonderful cars. Great to see a lovely and fast Aston Martin Ulster and an incredibly detailed Auto Union Type C!! Great racing too!! Who’d have thought those old girls and boys would be so much fun!! Sorry the two Alfas didn’t get a chance to run together, perhaps next time.

      Merry Christmas everyone in case we don’t manage to get together again before the 25th.
