Nice work Marc

Both GT's look very well prepared. Nice and clean install, looking forward to see these two cars make their debut on the DiSCA races.
Just on tip. I would reroute the wires for the Hall sensor.
Now they cross under the motor wires which can cause interference on the hall sensor signal.
Better route them so they cross over the chip in front of the motor wires.




With kind regards
Tamar

Also worth ensuring you have 1.8mm motor clearance with the standard scaleauto foam tyres which are 20.5mm in diameter new. With 1mm offset motor pods getting that clearance is not straightforward

Greetings all! I've touched down in Holland and have spent they day with Tamar preparing for the weekend ahead.
 
Attention:
Today's preparations included a call with Slot.it where we've been issued a hand controller and in-car firmware update ahead of the weekend. The purpose of the update is to try and make the radio communication even better than the current latest release. As this firmware has only been issued to us and not uploaded to the Slot.it website, we require that everyone update their cars and hand controllers on arrival, or during the allotted time for updates in the schedule. Please be proactive in coming to race control for updates, rather than assuming you have the latest firmware already and you'll be ok!
 
Catering information: On both Saturday and Sunday morning SRC Eindhoven are offering a continental breakfast for €5.00. For those attending Saturday evening's meal, please ensure you have €25.00 cash ready on entry as you will be asked by the restaurant to pay in advance.
 
Media information: I'm hoping to bring reasonably frequent coverage of the GT3 event and the WEC 6 hours using facebook, twitter and instagram so if you'd like to follow what's going on then I recommend you follow officialdisca on those channels.
 
Safe journey to all travelling to Best and I very much look forward to meeting with everyone at the club :cheers:




Gary

Slept, kippers and feeling awake now.



A great weekend of socialising, racing and making new friends.

Huge thanks to SRC Eindhoven and in particular Steffan, Tamar and Paul for hosting us, organising, keeping calm when things did not quite go to plan, and running an excellent and packed race programme.

A good UK contingent from Rockingham (John, Adam, myself, along with Keith 'the finger' Fishenden and Jon 'spend 3 months on a car, race once and put it on a shelf' White), Quorn and N Staffs. That meant 5 uk entires in Saturday's GT3 races and 4 in the WEC endurance on Sunday.

Adam and I managed a 2nd and 3rd in the two GT3 races, with the second race being very close with 2nd (Fish & Haddock), 3rd (us) and 4th (Thorpe and Wade) less than 1/2lap between us. Great racing. We ran a Sideways Lambo that proved extremely capable.

The meal on Saturday evening was excellent, a definite place to return to.

Sunday's 6 HR endurance was interesting. The top 3 from Rockingham's round of WEC battled it out for top spot. Racing for Belgium Slot it Lola lmp1, SRC Eindhoven and scaleauto Porsche GT and Rockingham (Keith, Adam and I) with our trusty Toyota lmp1. It was nip and tuck all the way with never more than 5 laps between us. We broke a lead wire that cost us 7 laps, and the Porsche in the hands of Steffan, Leonard and Paul proved a tad consistently quick. Racing for Belgium in the last 3 mins had 2nd place by 4 laps from us, but unfortunately broke a guide post. So a Porsche gt (sidewinder mabuchi) took the win by 13 laps from us and racing for Belgium 26 laps further back.

A great race. John Underwood, Jon White and Gary Skipp were 4th another 40 laps behind the Belgium team, but they took the p2 win.

Really enjoyable weekend, great company and racing held in the fun but competitive spirit it should be (most of the time!!).

We will be back and encourage other to sample the delights of Eindhoven and the hospitality of SRC Eindhoven.

Matt

Slept, toast and still feeling like a derailed train wreck ;)



 
But most happy to read here and on social media that we've managed to entertain our slot racing friends and host an good race at the same time.
It takes an enormous amount of energy to organise such events and I would like to thank every body that has attended, participated and had given a helping hand in this weekends
Suzuka Double Digital.
In the coming week/days we'll be posting more data, result, images and possibly videos. In these times everybody with an smartphone is an amateur photographer, blogger etc etc.
But it takes time to get them all (including mine) on the same platform.




With kind regards
Tamar

Thanks to everyone that made the trip to Best for this weekend's event, whether you travelled from near or far! It's a testament to the quality of the facility and the friendly hosts to attract such healthy grids for both events. Extended thanks to Tamar, Paul, Stefan and everyone who helped behind the bar over the three days.
 
The GT3 grid looked amazing and provided two excellent races. The WEC field was very high quality with new racers from Charleroi and the Danish Le Mans team entering cars. I'm extremely pleased the appeal of DiSCA racing continues to reach clubs all over the continent and draw them to events like this. It only enhances the quality of the event and the special feeling of taking part in the company of other esteemed slot racing clubs and racers. Great stuff!
