MHSC
,
in its wisdom has decided to hold a Rally! event in October or November, (not as part of 'slot rally' series}, all tracks will be built before the event they will be planned and checked and have individual electronic scoring and power supplies.
I hope there proves to be enough suport for this.
Rules will follow shortly, please use the forum to offer support for the event so we can judge the cost per class.
Regards
Zen

From what I can tell it looks like it's the same event that was mentioned a while ago that's in Watford.

Just checked the clubs section and MHSC is Middlesex and Herts

QUOTE (Julian_Boolean @ 16 Aug 2012, 07:40) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Why don't you just use Slot Rally GB rules?

The fact it isn't Slot rally rules has turned me from a possible yes to travelling down to this to a definite no


I can understand why any club would want to do its own thing but there are a lot of GB rally people, all with cars prepped a certain way who don't really want to mess with their cars for a different event

rules state motors as supplied by the manufactuter in the particular car. ie ninco nc5 must be used if car came with it. ie you cannot change it to a slolt it or scx or cartrix or nc12

motor changes are in modified category
