Hi All

EMCC (Eastern Model Car Club) is going to have our first unofficial race day on the 23rd February 2014, be there 9am for a 10:00 o’clock start. This will be at the clubs new home Eastgate Court Wantirna Sth (Melway 64 B11) and this is our home as it is all sign sealed and delivered. All 1/8 nitro & electric vehicles welcome.
As we don’t have the fence or track built yet this will be an unofficial race day/get together and a start to get to know people day. This will be run on the grass (cut as short as we can get it) with a jump or two and witches hats as the track, also we will have the timing system set up and running.
We will be asking for a gold coin donation to go towards the running of the generator, timing gear and to help the club get under way. We won’t have any food or drink there so this one will be BYO everything.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the EMCC keep an eye out as more information will follow soon.

Now that MORRCC is on twice a month, will be difficult not to clash :(

We picked the 23rd so we don't clash, we want to work in with there dates so peole have as much opertunaty to drive thier cars.
Even if anyone didn't have a car up and running it would be great to see you there to meet and start to get to know people.

Well that's good to know.
More track time is always better.

Interested to see the track lay out

Are there any images available? I'm curious on the lay out to being a novice racer

The track design is basic enough that the novice driver will be able to get around it.

And then we have plans for in the future to do changes that can be done to updated and change the layout and level of obstacles with out to much work.
I will see if I can get a lay out posted.

Not sure on what height at this stage. We will be starting with a dirt mound so it will depend on the amont of dirt available.

Was great to meet people today and have a bit of a drive.

Hopefully next time we get together it will be to start to build the track and fence. Marking out of the track and fence will be done this week and the clay should also start to be delivered this week. Just working with the council on some extra info they required on the fence and track construction, so hopefully not to long before we get the OK to start building. :)

Good to see everything coming together nicely with this track! Shame I only caught the tail end as everyone was leaving and packing up.
Will try and get my act together next time and have a car ready!

That hybrid car was an absolute freak! Couldn't get past 50 - 75% throttle from what I heard....I'd love to see that on dirt!

Going to be awesome when it starts getting built!

Have the council provided stipulations on when people can actually use the track when it's completed? I understand Sunday race meets, but what about practice since the track is open to the public?

Basically all that has been discussed is that joe public will use the track whenever and that is out of our control. If the club wants to run anything official other than on Sundays we need council approval.
