HO SLot Car Shows

Hi everyone,

No not the kind of show where you drive cross country to purchase that missing piece for your collection but the kind of show where you go to the collisium to see all the cool real 1:1 cars. But in this case they are HO Scale (No scale discussion at this time ) cars that you mail in to be judged.

A new HO Site has been created it is for holding Ho Slot Car Shows. A type of Virtual Car Show. The first show is Asylum Racings Local Short Track showcasing Vintage and Modern Local Short Track Cars. Show entrants must arrive at Glen Oswald's by Oct 15th to be photographed and placed in the show room.

There are photo Albums for the modeler to place any photos of their entrants as they are being built and to share any other Short Track car they have form the past.

This site will be available to anyone that wants to host a Car Show in the future. Contact me and we will set things up for you.

I will also be posting entrants photos here as Glenngets then ready,

Below is the updated Rules that Reflect the new site

Having fun as always

Asylum Racing / HO Slot Car Modeling

Concourse Contest

brought to you by HO Slot Car Shows
Oct 15, 2007
(All entries must be postmarked by this date)

Winners announced on Halloween Night

Rules and Classes:

All cars must represent a Local Short Track Race Car

All cars must be built out of either a modified hard plastic (JL, Aurora, Atlas, TOMY, Lifelike etc.) or a modified resin body any manufacturer or scratch build of sheet styrene or other similar plastic and Lexan (but keep in mind the cars will be judged on Detail, Originality, and Finish)

Cars maybe built on any HO scale chassis; each car must be able to run on a standard HO track.

If modeling an actual car please include a photograph so the car can be judged on how close you are able to replicate the car in scale. (Cars do not have to be replicas of real cars)

A written description of what modification was done and the materials used must be included with each car.

(May be a future competition)
