With all the talent at Slotforum we have an opportunity here to create a standard set of club rules that we can all develope together which could form the basis for all competition world wide or at least in the UK.

Now they could even be used as a standard for local clubs with bylaws used as local amendments.

They would also be useful for anybody thinking of setting a club or a competiton up as a national standard would be understood by everbody and could be adopted by various slot car organisations.

So where do we begin?


Which club has the most complete set of rules that they are willing to publish here so that we can work our way through them and add to, alter or delete them as necessary?


Or do we start from scratch?


We produce a standard for all circuit types with and without magnets, and then have addendums for wood track surfaces and plexy track surfaces, and further addendums if you wish to permit tuning in various forms looking at each componenet of a slot car at a time.

Who is up to the challenge?

Who would like to join a "Slotforum International Slot Car Rule Commitee" to produce a standard?

Really they are not going to be formal rules but guidelines that could be adopted as rules or at least be used to offer guidence in the event of there being a dispute.

I am just sounding out interest at the moment.

However, Slotforum commitees on a whole range of subjects does seem like a good idea.

Draft guidelines could be promulgated on a range of subjects and offered to the Slotforum membership for consultation before they are finalised.

From an analytical viewpoint as far as rules go I could certainly draw up a set of headings around which further discussion could take place.

Any agreement promulgated could then be featured at Slotforum as a permanent record of its members which could assist in the arbitration of any dispute or offer clarification in the event of any uncertainty. And they could be used as guidelines by clubs who wish to modify rules or create new ones for new classes of event.

Just my further thoughts although the initial reaction appears negative for the time being.

I just thought that with such a large number of clubs represented here then I could act as a catalyst to get heads together but clearly slot car racing is rather more fragmented than I had first considered it to be.
