2010 summer tri surface challange?

Postby daffy » Thu Jul 30, 2009 9:53 pm

After last meetings washout after heat 1, ive been thinking about a possible solution.
Whilst i understand the clubs decision to race outside if at all possible our climate rarely cooperates.as much as i like racing outside i personaly would prefer to get a full meetings racing indoors than half a meeting outside.With regard to this i sugest the following:

A Tri Surface Challange to consist of at least 2 Rounds on Carpet, 2 rounds on Slippery Floor and 2 rounds on Tarmac .(Rounds can be increased depending on weather conditions.) Giving 3 mini Championships and 1 overall chamionship.

so if the weathers dry we race outside on tarmac, if its wet or rain threatens we race indoors on carpet or slippery floor, this would also hopefully encourage more drivers to turn up as its something different.I dont know if im on the right track with this anyone else any other idea's

Cheers Colin

Hi Colin,
That sounds like a good idea to me, providing us with a bit of variety. Gets my vote!

Sounds interesting, my only comment would be do we know how well the Tamiya Mini's drive on polished wood without mini-pins?

Regards,

Dan

the other week at Sevenoaks I was doing the same number of laps with the Mini on M-grip tyres & I did with the TC on minipins, although the short wheelbase was a lot better than the medium or long.
