RevoSlot Porsche 993 GT2

In 1996 if you wanted to go endurance racing in the GT2 class you had two options – race a Porsche 911 GT2 or lose. The Porsches were that dominate in the mid-90’s that they won just about every GT2 race and every GT2 series. They were the perfect mix of power, handing and more importantly – durability. The club is looking for the same level of durability in our RevoSlot Porsche 911 GT2 series. The rules are the most simple ever used, aiming to focus more on drivers skill than choice of car or set up.

Thunder Slot Lola T70 MKIII

The Lola T70 race car, designed by Eric Broadley, was a hit right out of the box, winning the inaugural Can-Am Challenge in 1966. Developed as both a spyder, as well as a coupe, it proved quite versatile, with a large variety of engines. ThunderSlot cars, founded by Giovanni Montiglio, have proven to be very quick right out of the box. For this one-marque series, cars will run mostly stock with only a few optional parts, this should create a level playing field and fierce competition.

NSR Rally: Renault Clio R3 vs Abarth S2000

The Fiat Punto S2000 by Abarth and the Renault Clio by Renault Sport were built to win rally championships. Both cars were evenly matched and spectacular to watch; they not only excited the crowds with their drifting around turns they also sounded fantastic as drivers pushed the cars to the absolute limits. Recreating some of this excitement is the goal of this series. Expect to see some of the same drifting and smell some of the tires burning as they race around the clubs new rally track.

Ary threw everyone a curve with Round 5 of the El Piloto Series, held last Thursday, May 19; he decided that we should race in the opposite direction!!  However, difficulties in the setup precluded the race being run in such an unconventional manner.  We resorted to the more familiar, if prosaic, race format. Nonetheless competition…
