In association with Rockingham Slot Car Club I am pleased to announce the UK's first 6 hour event for DiSCA W.E.C. specification slot cars.

Cloud Sky World Mode of transport Font

Teams of 3 or more drivers are invited to register.

The race will take place Sunday 12th November 2017.

The weekend is a double-header format with the DiSCA GT3 Euroseries event taking place on Saturday 11th November.

On Friday 10th November the club will open for visiting teams to set-up, submit cars for technical inspection, get firmware updates and partake in free practice using W.E.C. cars. The opportunity to participate in Rockingham Slot Car Club's regular Friday club night will also be given.

A full schedule for the weekend is given in the sporting regulations.




Drinks and snacks are available from the club kitchen. There are several take-away food outlets, eateries and supermarkets in the nearby area.

The club has recently been extended to host the BSCRA Nationals circuit, on top of which the 6h circuit will be built.


The circuit will be thematically representative of the Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium. Corner construction and decoration will be based on the Spa circuit wherever possible, although necessary compromises will be made in order that the circuit is accommodated within the layout of the figure-8 BRSCA track.

Hi Marcel

The track will sit on top of the BSCRA track so it will follow the profile of that circuit. It was actually a big challenge to fit any sort of layout on this circuit because of the lack of 'real straights' and the shallow angle of the only good one! The idea for Spa only really came about because the kink that forms Eau Rouge was 100% necessary to create a track of any sort. Once I did I began to see a few other similarities with the Spa circuit and proposed the theme to the Rockingham Club. It was enthusiastically received and I am told there is already a small team working on pine trees and decoration :)

If anyone is familar with the DAVIC circuit at SRC Le Mans they will know it is nothing like Le Mans, but at the same time, it is. While I would personally prefer to race on accurate circuits for DiSCA events I believe it is sensible to make some compromises so that we can support the clubs that in turn support our ambition.

Thanks to all for an enthusiastic response. More than half of the grid slots being filled within 24 hours of the announcement. From the cars entered so far, it looks like several of the regular W.E.C. teams will be looking to get some early testing in for the 2018 season!

The key ingredient is in place - Spa themed tyre barriers, what more do you need! Well we need trees, I have delegated that out to a number of team members, not seen any results yet other than one 6ft Christmas tree.

We have completed the space, there will be lots of room. The drivers rostrum will happily give 12 spaces all with clear views of the track, and plenty of pit space and room to mingle.

In terms of entries we will have 3 in the Saturday GT3 event and two in the Sunday 6hr WEC event. For Sunday one team will be running a P1 LMP Toyota TS030 and the other a P2 Acura.

I know the Hopeful Six have at least 1 entry, and are planning on running a 2016 or 2017 LMP P2, 3D printed body and chassis - a work in progress.

Got a question,

I've seen in the final instructions, that the track is closed on friday at 19.00
And from that point on it's a normal clubrace evening (woorden 4 lane).

If possible, can we join in on this race aswell? Just for fun.
If my other travel compagnions don't mind, and if no other plans have been made.

If this is all possible, what class will be raced?

Kind Regards Tom
