What a freak of nature Jules is! He wouldn't have raced much in the last 12 months and pulls out a 1st at the nationals

Well done to the other winners too.

Congratulations to all the winners and finalists, this was a huge event and the first of such magnitude for the 1/5th off road boys in Australia.

I witnessed and was involved in some fantastic racing on a challenging track!
The track changed over the 4 days and presented more challenges as time went on.

Thank you to QORLS and your committee for hosting, I/we appreciate the amount of work put on the get it over the line.
A big thanks to all the members I met behind the scenes, your all more than welcome to come and race in Sydney anytime as we discussed.

A lot of people will have learnt a lot over the 4 days of competition including myself, I look forward to November 2013 when we can all meet again in Sydney for the next instalment.

Thank you to Brad Davis from AARCMCC for his role as race director, the event ran very smoothly and there was plenty of time scheduled between races for track watering etc.
The Slyfox program didn't miss a best and having Troy commentate the race when your driving is an experience in itself.

Cheers
Dean Roworth

I went along for a few hours on Saturday as a spectator & really enjoyed it. I've never been to a race meet before but it looked like a heap of fun.
Just wish I had a completed car to race.
Great job.

Well what a great 4 days of racing, a Huge Thank You to everyone, Sponsors, Hosts and Competitors, Marshals, Officials and Spectators.

It was good to see everyone out having fun and working together to make this the first in what will hopefully become an Ongoing event around the country for many years to come.

Once again I got to meet a lot more of the large scale community from around the country, putting names to faces and catching up with Interstate Friends, What a great bunch of people.

I had a great weekend. Many a laugh was had. Meet a lot of people and put a face to the user name. Thanks to QORLS for putting the event on. Brad for running the event very smoothly. Deano and Callan for all there hard work with the rule books and helping in this sport of ours. Callan from KING RC again for all his help by giving me pointers on how to set up the car and with parts like the powerhouse G4z engine. Brad for helping Callan rebuild my engine after I had a little dust problem. And the Rok from Rok Rc for suppying a couple of servos after I fried mine.

2012 Largescale Offroad Nationals was a great starting point for the future of this great sport.

all part of the G4Z after sales support mate :thumb:
you were not the only one to get caught with the dust

i think i rebuilt 4 engines over the weekend

but worth it to keep the G4z boys out on the track and having fun

you cant beat that for product support

Looking at the results DPS and Allanach racing have done very well. “Simple is best!”

I must say 4wd classes have come a long way, look at the closes racing and depth of quality drivers. The 4wd winners had to really fight for their spots.

I have to mention David was dead last at the start. The displayment of his driving to get to second was defiantly the high light of the Championships.I must say my Team Driver Tony had a tire change during the race and still came third.
In my opinion any of the top three drivers deserved to win.
Darren - with all the bad luck you have had you deserve to be Aussie Champion!

Julian - I think you shocked some of NSW team members. You have not raced for 13 months.
YOU CAME - YOU KICKED BUTT – AND NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN

Matt – steady wins the race -you won the winter series and now an Aussie Champion –well done!

Well done to all the Champions in all classes!

mate, the guys who got video footage of the event, weren't apart of out club before the Australian Championships. They came out as they were new to the filmiong industry and it would be there first big thing. They want to send an edited copy of the filming to Brisbane Digital Channel '31', and to make a 1hr long DVD to be sold to earn some extra cash, most likely to pay off the video filming equipment and the cost of the DVD's and cases. As if they are going to just give it away? Thats like you going to work and not getting payed for it? Have a think about it hey?
