    The draft rules on the splash page are just a placeholder. At least I hope so.

    Brian, I think the SRC rally cars would fill the Monte slot well. Win, win.

    From John B via the email list.

    First off, apologies for not putting this on the forum. Anyone who wants to post it are welcome to do so. This email is to lobby for the NSR Formula 22 cars for a 2024 series. I’ve been building an NSR AM F1 car. Haven’t tested it yet as I’m waiting for a white chassis. Tires are trued and did break in the motor and gears. Here are the pros and cons:

    Pros:
    10 variations in red, white, blue, yellow, a white kit, three Astons and two pre-order McLarens. Would expect more in ‘24.
    Atalaya is making decals for Alpine for the NSR. Most of the Atalaya decals for the Policar F1 car will work.
    Several chassis of varying rigidity are available from NSR
    There a variety of NSR Pinion and Crown gears. While the NSR pinions are unique and have to be used, I would allow Slot.it crowns as well, as was done with Formula 86/89.
    Two rear wheel widths and tires are available. Would allow both with a width template for inspection.
    Stock 21K long can motor would be mandatory.
    Axle stoppers allowed.
    12 volts unless testing dictates otherwise.

    Cons:
    Car has not be tested on track yet.
    Pinion gear “sleeve” requires that the NSR pinion for Formula 22 be used.

    Summary: Expect the Formula 22 line to be easy to build and very fast.
    Below are attached photos of the car. Notice the long shank pinions,
    Thanks,
    Lotus Jr.

    A long shot, I know, but thought I would throw out there,

    George Turner Edwardian racers series. They all run on the same chassis (included in the kit, nd there is an improved printed chassis as well.

    http://www.georgeturnermodels.com/shop/edwardian-racers/

    There are currently 21 kits available.

    Randy, Sounds complicated, logistically. But if you are willing to organize and run it.

    Cars need not be identical, but would be bound to a certain lane with drivers rotating through each lane/car in the usual round robin fashion. I have 2 Mercs, and 2 Skylines, would be nice to get an Alfa volunteered for the day, or an Opel.

    Run-What-Ya-Brung hillclimb. Anything that has not competed on the rally track before, the weirder the better. 30 laps on the Rally track, as it is a hillclimb.

    Mel, rules for running gear are very open, so go for it. Consider it a voyage of discovery 🙂

    Hi, guys! Homework time!

    I would like to include some car details in the Monte write-ups. In order to get the information gathered before race-day when we are all busy. I have included a template document to ease you on your way. Please post your car info here on the forum, thanks.
