Hey Guys!

I was just messaging Simon at Hot_Car_Track in Australia, and he is putting on a year-long event called Lord of the Wasteland on his new track!

I've offered to try to organize things over here...so we can just send one package of cars over to race. I took a screen grab of the rules that I'll post here...pretty straight forward stuff.

I figure, if we can get a bunch of cars ready by the 1st of March, we can Sen a box over and he will have plenty of time to race them.

This would be a great way to help him get his channel going and, heck it would be cool to be racing cars in Qz :)

I asked, and the cars don't have to be 'Mad Max' style cars...Lord of the Wasteland is just the title of his year long race series

Thanks Guys!

Let's build some cool cars and send them over!

  • Man I dig your diorama and good luck in the Wastelands — HotCarTrack
  • It was built by Dave Akers and thank you — NDeavers80

Is it too late to get a car in for this series for the shipping from the US? Love the track man!

  • No just get some stuff ready...don't think anyone has shipped yet — LeagueofSpeed
  • Ok cool I'll get something together. — RustBeltRacing


Be great to see you all down under for this, the street rods, or the mod rods.

With the production HCT is putting on, worth the effort. If there is anything that I can assist you with down under, just holler! HCT aint that far from me (well maybe Australian miles are longer!) and happy to assist.
