The new Phoenix Slot Racing Website is up and running, (just about) if anyone is interested.

We're hoping to make it reasonably interactive offering results from club nights along with information from the club based solely on the club side.

If you are a club member and want more info, then please let me know.

More information is being added to the site on an almost daily basis!

Good to see that the Phoenix club is still running strong - had not seen anything about the club for years. If John is still running the club give him my best regards as his involverment in "short Circuits" and running a big open meeting with swap meet were great ground breakers at that time

Hi Wibbly
Great to see that you are back racing at Phoenix and that Thursday nights have been ressurrected as a result.
The new website looks great and will be a super addition to the club - your old forum was always very popular.
I think you need to make some amendments to the home page mate as far as it relates to Monday nights. It is not just magnet only, it is a mix of both - 3 mag and 2 non mag classes which gives highly competitive racing in a friendly environment. It gives a blend of both so that newcomers can race box standard cars with magnets and progress towards non mag racing if they want to. After all our Dads and Lads night is where a lot of racers started including yourself !
It is a fantastic start to racing and also provides those that race the ability to progress without the additional expense that racing all non mag classes brings particularly if you are racing with your son/daughter as I have for the last 7 years.
I think you need to make some amendments along the lines of the above so that it is right from day one as after all this is what the world will see.
Why does the description for Thursday racing night start with the word meanwhile? Don't think that gives the right impression, it reads a bit dismissive of the Monday night section.

Matt
Jon is still running the club and will pass on your regards when I see him on Monday.

Regards

Andrew

I have a few questions, if I may.

The open times on the 'club info' page are:
Monday 6 pm til 8.30 pm - Junior Championship
Tuesday 6pm til 9 pm - Family Night
Thursday 6pm til 11.30pm - Senior Championship Night
Saturday 10 am til 1.30 pm - Open race session

But the new website says 7-9pm Mondays, and 7:30-10pm Thursdays.

I presume the new website is the correct information, but are those times permanent? If my family's interest continues I'd like to come across and check out your club/circuit, but you are 40 minutes away and I don't want to keep an 11 year old up too late.


What are the current membership and racing costs? I can't see these listed on the new website.

Would cars be provided, at least short term, or would we need to bring our own?

Also the 'Dads and Lads' night gives the impression that Ladies are unwelcome, is this the case? The 3 of us enjoy racing, and would likely all want to join in.


Thanks,
Alex

Hi Alex.

Jon who runs the club is away at present so will not pick up your post for a few days.
I can confirm that the new website contains the correct times.
You would be more than welcome to come across, Mondays would be the best night to start with and we do try to finish up as close to nine as possible so that the youngsters can get away at a reasonable time.
I will get Jon to confirm the exact costs for membership and racing.
Cars and controllers are provided.
Ladies are more than welcome to race. Dads and Lads is the name that was historically given for the nights racing but it was changed to family night some time ago - the new website will need to changed in respect of this ( it was changed on the older website ).
Cheers
Andrew

I have been meaning to check this club out myself, so give me a shout if you are planning on visiting. In the meantime the three of you are welcome to have a go on the Slot ROC circuit.
