Recently, reports of the formation of endohedral cluster compounds He@Cn+ and Ne@Cn - 4/+ (n even and ≤ 60) have been published for high energy collisions between C60+ and rare gases [1-4]. Here we present the collision energy dependence for the formation of He@C60+ and Ne@C60+ in the region of the energetic threshold for the capture process. The threshold for He capture lies at 6±2 eV in the centre of mass reference frame whereas that for Ne lies somewhat higher at 9±1 eV.
