Hi all,

Anyone wishing represent the club and attend who does not have suitable car/contoller, please reply either below or PM and we'll see what we can do!
Area 6 Challenge

This series of races in aimed at getting a larger number of existing slot racers through club
doors on a normal club night without introducing additional races into the schedule and
making it as accessible as possible to encourage as many racers out of their clubrooms.
Although this is an Area 6 Challenge, racers from any area are welcome.

Championship Rounds
Each round will be held on a normal club night (NLSME on Thursday, LSCC on Monday,
Wellingborough on Tuesday).
Each participating club will host 2 rounds in the championship.
If the visiting clubs wish to hold their normal club night for that week, that is their decision.
An entry fee of £5 will be charged per entrant per round - 50% going to the prize fund and
50% to the hosting club.

Race Format

Qualifying order will be based on the championship overall positions. The first round
qualification order will be based on National driver seedings. After the first round, a new
driver to join the series will go into the bottom final regardless of his National seeding (as
Falcon Pro)
The races will be a series of segmented move-up finals using half the lanes on a track. Each
race will result in the first 3 moving up into the next. In the case of a 6-lane track
(Wellingborough), the first 4 will move up.
Lane selection will be pre-determined.
E.g. a race for a 4 lane track, a driver will get two segments - one on an inner lane and one
on an outer lane. For a 6 lane track, a driver will get three segments - one on an inner lane,
one on a middle lane and one on an outer lane.

The total distance on all lanes will count.

Other Rules and Regs

1 Each driver must nominate his choice of Overall or Sub class before the round starts.
2 1 minute is permitted for mid race lane changes
3 No tool assisted work on cars permitted between lane changes
4 No tyre changes between the start and end of a segmented race.
5 Round Timetable
a. Club Open by 2000 latest
b. Practice until 2100
c. Races until they finish (should be by 2300)
6 Judges for best presented will be decided at the round.
7 The hosting club will be expected to organise and run the evenings round.
8 Each club will nominate one of its members as a Steward for each round.
9 The Stewards decisions will be final.
