The aims of the club are to promote slot car racing as an enjoyable hobby in which everyone can compete on an equal basis and to achieve close racing in a fun atmosphere.
2. GENERAL SPECIFICATION:
All cars, in all classes must conform to the letter and the spirit of the specifications set out below, and may be subjected to pre or post race scrutineering.
- Each driver races four heats, using all four lanes. Heat participants randomly selected at the beginning of the night.
- Duration of heats will vary according to class, as will the manner of scoring. Practice prior to racing is confined to cars for that night’s classes to give all drivers a chance to get on track.
- Any testing of other cars to be left until the night’s racing has ceased. Practice to begin as soon as the track is open and will finish at approx 8.15pm.
- Racing to begin as soon as possible after that time.
- Racers are not obliged to use lane colour indication stickers, but it may aid marshals to identify cars if they de-slot.
- No substitution of cars is allowed once a heat has started, unless (especially during races that count cumulatively) there is a terminal mechanical failure.
- Drivers may use different cars (for the relevant class) per heat should they wish.
4. GENERAL RULES:
