Rockingham Slot Car Club are pleased to invite entries for our 1st digital event of 2021 which will be run to DiSCA WEC GT Specification.

The event will be run using the usual hand out tyres, 2 sets of N18 and 1 set of F22 compound, these will be available for practice/qualifying on Sunday morning.
There will be no handout motors, we will however be keeping a eye on suspect cars and will be working on the trust of our fellow competitors!
Any suspect cars may be subjected to an RPM test.

Entry fee is £40 per team and entries will be confirmed on receipt of an initial deposit of £10 which can be made via paypal to [email protected]
*NOTE* In the event that Rockingham has to cancel the event due to any Government imposed restrictions all deposits WILL BE REFUNDED.
Deposits paid by any team that "No Shows" WILL NOT BE REFUNDED.
Entry fee remaining balance of £30 per team should be paid on the day.

A full timetable will be announced in due course.

We hope that you're all as keen to get racing as we are.

Cheers.
Nik.

Finally, a deadline, a chance to rise , race and get out of my house (and country)

Ok still have to find out if my team mates will get an Ausweiss for the UK, vaccinations etc etc...but consider Mission 8/ Low Lands racing to be your first (and international) entry.
Will be dammned if I do, and if I don't.

Paypal send, so do I get to pick first rostrum position for qualification?

Be great to see you in July all things being well.

If anybody has a preference regarding their team ID number please say so and we'll do our best to accommodate.

Everyone, the age old question of what is or isn't a WEC car has arisen.

To encourage some diversity, as we have done at other Rockingham DiSCA GT races, we are allowing any GT car whether it's a GTE/GTLM or a GT3 car but it MUST BE BUILT TO DiSCA WEC SPECS.

Entries so far...

1. Mission 8/Low Lands Racing...ID 14 and/or 15

2. Garage 27................................ID 17

3. Exiles

Cheers.

Considering it will be a six hours, to DiSCA WEC (GTLM) specs.. with full light sets (front and rear) mandatory....and it being dark as hell at the club when you turn the lights out, even in broad daylight...

will this edition of the RockBull 6hrs...finally have a "dark session"?

Looking forward to see you all again.

With kind regards

As all cars should have the required illumination systems and therefore be prepared for any ambient light conditions, I am keeping this information strictly on a need to know basis.

At this point no-one else needs to know

Tamar are you trying to get 2 teams sorted out, are Mission 8 and Low Lands 2 seperate teams hence the 2 ID numbers? It's not a problem I just need to know

Lots of positivity for this event so far thanks everyone, please keep the entries coming.

Cheers.

Hello friends, how very, very nice it is to see this announcement.

Sports Carazing request one car for now. Deposit has been payed. If we could have ID 9 or 7, that'd be lovely. Aspiring detectives may attempt to identify the car based on this request ;)

All the best, see you all soon :thumbsup:

Hello Nik
Well lots of things needed to be sorted in a short time. With the (inter) national Covid situation still very fluid it could become two teams, just one, or worst case scenario...none.
So with these ID reserved I'm covering all options.
And then there is also the choice of car.... after my initial reflex of "Oh finally a chance to finish and race the SV8 GTE"...reality check...its just 10 weeks, would need to laminate, paint and decal Bodie(s) finish Masters for vac formed Interiors etc etc.
And this being announced as a 1 day event...no time to test and finish the car the evening before the race
innocent.gif


So for now, scrap the "Mission8" part from the entry, Steven V and I will continue as just Low Land Racing and instead of the SV8 GTE we'll be running this AMR Vantage GT3/GTLM

So any one else that had plans to run this livery...please drop it

For now ID's # 14 -#15 are still good, might barter with Gary about ID #7

With kind regards
Tamar

Tamar, It's a 2 day event hence the dates of 17th and 18th of July, the probable plan will be free practice on the Saturday and then qualifying and race on the Sunday.

Room now for up to 6 more teams, anyone from Gas Monkeys, Worthing, Great Barr or QuornStars interested?

Ok Thx Nik for the update, good news. Will await more detailed Schedule for final details.
But even more important, will await changes in Dutch Gov travel advice for UK...which still is 'Negative"

With kind regards

The International travel situation is a bit of a minefield currently but I'm sure everyone here in the UK has their fingers crossed that you can make it
