Bayside Race Results from today have been uploaded. Check the “Race Results” page on the menu above.
Another day of perfect weather greeted the 40 drivers who turned out for the regular club meet at Bayside today.
The usual classes were run 540, Stock, Mod, Gas Tourer and Pro Tourer with Stock being the biggest class.
The racing was good in every class, and although the track was “slow” early on times came down progressively during the day – I thought there was a good feel to the racing today with enjoyment being high on the agenda.
Here’s the latest list – updated 16.5.06
In addition to the list below we also so have lots of other juicy bits as well. Also just restocked our $5 – $10 – and $15 boxes with good close out stuff – come and have a look at Bayside on Sunday.

Big Mac had the idea of bringing one of Offroad’s ideas over to onroad. Take a bunch of top racers and put them in a rounds race situation and then run a normal race meet in conjunction. The theory is that with all the top mod drivers out of the way it will open up the mod class racing to some who normally don’t get on the podium or who normally don’t race mod at all. With the help of Leo from Hobby Station, Big Mac set out to make his dream a reality.
Here’s a few snapshots from the HS Invititational/Brisbane Cup last weekend.
Here is the setup we finished the weekend with at the Hobbystation Invitational. This setup is for a tight indoor bitumen track with quite good grip.
The car was really excellent to drive – very safe and sure footed, plenty of steering. It was ballistic off the line and out of slow corners.
Well it’s done and dusted. An excellent weekend’s racing for the first annual Hobbystation Invitational/Brisbane Cup. Anthony Atack (Invitational), Brett Ryan (Open Modified) and Damian Barnier (Stock) where the winners after 2 hard-fought days of racing.
The Hobbystation track has been prepared, repainted, track markings replaced, relaid and re-fastened. The surface is clean, the track is closed to drift cars and offroad trucks so will stay clean. In three days time the Brisbane Cup & Hobbystation Invitational will roar into life…..

There are a few guys going around who would have reasonable claim to be considered Australia’s best R/C driver. Simon Camilleri, Simon Nicholson, Ari Bakla and Matt Griffin are probably the standout contenders. I think over the weekend (at the Aus EP Offroad Nats) we’ve seen an effort that possibly defines the best “allround” electric R/C racer in the country……. Continue reading Australia’s Best Driver….
