The track:

We will be racing on a 4 lanes Carrera track equipped with dead-strips.
Race-Coordinator will be our race management system.
The track will be laid on the parquet floor.
Ideally, some marshals (drivers not racing)
will rotate around the track after each heat
depending on number of attendants.

There will be plenty of chairs for marshals to sit on
and tables plus chairs for drivers to setup/fix cars.

The venue:
Audioactive is a Music venue, recording studios and more.
Ground floor: There is a cafe/bar selling snacks and drinks.
Toilets are also located on the ground floor.
Our track will be on the floor above the cafe
(stairs on the left as you enter).
One thing to consider:
The area we race has no access to wheelchairs (not yet anyway).

The parking:
Nearest parking will be Grafton multi storey car park.
(The AMF Bowling car park).

The rules:
-Please, be sure to check car's mechanical integrity prior to racing as:

Scrutiny and practice from 12 pm till 1 pm.
(Scrutiny will take place at the same time as practice)

The plan is to run up to 3 races (will depend on time left available).
Each heat is set to 3 minutes with a short interval between them.

There are other customers been served downstairs
and we want to be able to book it again.

-No form of abuse towards marshals and venue staff will be tolerated.
-If anything is wrong:
keep calm
talk to me.

Thank you!

I'm local to Worthing and interested in this, but don't do Facebook so can't see any details on the link you've provided because it's to a private group. Any chance of making it an open group and/or posting details of the event and track here? I know several other club racers who'd be interested too.

What track system do you use?
Hi David,
Sure, I will be posting the rules draft here too.
All the info will be in the draft.
