21.5T class splits!!
Due to the speed of the current 21.5T motors being so impressive and the class being the entry level point for new racers we have decided to split the class.
21.5T will now include the following Sub-classes:
R1 ISTC 21.5T
R1 21.5T Sportsman
21.5T Open will permit the use of ANY ROAR/BRCA approved 21.5T motor as well as any brand of rubber tyre.
R1 ISTC 21.5T will only use the R1 V16 21.5 RCRA Control motor sealed as per RCRA specs. It will also use Volante V6T 36R as a control tyre.
R1 21.5T Sportsman will be run as per R1 ISTC 21.5T but will be restricted to new racers and existing racers who have been graded into this class.
21.5T Sportsman will be run as per 21.5T Open but will be restricted to new racers and existing racers who have been graded into this class.
At most racedays the 21.5T Open and R1 ISTC 21.5T classes will be run together and the R1 21.5T Sportsman and 21.5T Sportsman will be run together.

STMCC Cup race report
The 2015 STMCC Cup has been run and won, with all competitors agreeing it was a great event and a fantastic way to end the year.
Lee Harvey was at his usual dominant best, TQ'ing in TC-1, TC-2 and Formula One as well as taking all four heat wins in those classs.
TC-1 consisted of a small field of 3 cars. Kye Gelston put up a challenge to Lee Harvey in the early laps, but just couldn't live with the speed and consistency of Harvey. Leo Lorenzen had a day of difficulties with his electrics, sitting out the first two heats while trying to trace an issue, eventually changing motor and ESC to complete the day.
TC-2 had a very competitive field of 9 cars, although none could get close to Lee Harvey. David Rush had a consistent run to second place for the day, but threw away a sure win in the third final after inheriting the lead when Harvey got tangled up in lapped traffic. Third went to Matthew Wollington who enjoyed a close fought battle with Adrian Gray in the third final until losing the battery from his car.
TC-3 continued the recent battles between Xray drivers John Batich and Kye Gelston. Batich took TQ honours and continuing on to take three wins from four finals to take victory from Gelston. Kim Dare had a solid run to third.
Formula One was fought out between Lee Harvey and David Rush, with Harveys pace just proving to be too strong. Late entrant Kim Dare managed to take a suprise third place for teh day with a very solid run. Adrian Gray and John Batich had a difficult day, Gray wiithdrawing his car with major handling issues and Batich breaking numerous parts on the debut run of his new Street Jam.
Mini was dominated by Matthew Wollington (also TQ), only being headed briefly by Kye Gelston in the early running. Ian Scott was a suprise second place finisher while Gelston had transponder issues early but was finally beaten by stripped gears in his gearbox.
This brings 2015 to a close, looking forward to agreat 2016 starting on Sunday January 17th.
