OK, there has been much talk of said event being held next year and subsequent years after the overwhelming success of the last one, so I think it is appropriate that a few details be provided and that a thread be devoted to it. Basically, the race was open to any pullback action Kombis this year, the majority being the "Kinsmart" brand ones available on ebay and in many gift stores. There werent too many rules in this years event at Canberra, as it was mostly in the name of fun... only real rule being no foul-play... which was, at least for the best part, adhered too! It was basically a few runs just for the fun of it, then successive elimination rounds to determ9ine a winner. Next years event will be in a similar format, however this year, Judy (Byronbug), has kindly offered to supply a prize for the winner, in order to make the event slightly more competitive. This means that there are competitors who are milling away at their kitchen tables modifying toy Kombis within an inch of their lives to extract the best possible performance from them... and the rules allow (and encourage) this... what will not be allowed, however, is Kombis with skyrockets attached to them! There will be fun races too for those who want to take it easy. I am also tossing up whether or not we should have a Beetle category also just to make things even more interesting... if it goes ahead, I will supply a prize for this category. ENtrants will have their cars numbered with little sticker type things on the night to aid judging winners. ANy suggestions to improve the races are welcome! Cheers!
