Race Format

All classes are to be run on distance over 2min 30sec with laps and footages counting, to your total distance over 6 races. Total distance determines the winner. In the event of a tie, the furthest distance in any of the 6 races will determine the winner.

NSSRC General Rules 2012

Must be 1/32 scale
Must have matching body and chassis
Must have interior including driver
Must run front tyres
Weight may be added to the inside of the car and must be secure
Screws maybe loose and maybe covered with tape or blu tac to prevent loss, if you do continue to lose a screw/screws from the same car in multiple races tape/blu tac will be compulsory for the rest of that evening.
If a wheel or Body is lost during a race it must be replaced within one lap, if you choose to continue for another lap you will lose the points for that race.
If you borrow a car, 1st you must make it clear to scrutineering, 2nd you will be able to run but you will receive no points for that race.
Tyres must be rubber on all cars raced, no ortmans, urethane, silicone or sponge.
Body Rock: This can be achieved by the heating of the shell so it can be expanded to fit a tight chassis, or light shaving or filing of the chassis (not shell). The modification must not be as extreme that a full 1 or 2mm gap is around the edge of the chassis. Body rock is what the rule is for not lightening of the car.

Race Rules
Drivers must not leave the podium until the last car has crossed the finish line.
After 3 minutes of the previous race ending the next race will start.
After racing you must marshal the colour coordinated point, if you are unable to marshal you must arrange for someone else to marshal your spot.
Cars must be put back on track were they came off.
No deliberate crashing.
If you do not start the race you will receive no distance for that race.
Should a car breakdown during a race it cannot be replaced
Should a track fault be called, the race is to be finished and the fault to be confirmed before a restart.
If 4 cars are off on the first bend a restart will be called
If a car deslots on the strait 1st the driver must make the other racers and race control aware they are off, the power will be cut and the car will be put back on by a marshal. If there is a crash as a result of a deslot on the straight, the marshals are to quickly assess the cars, if they are damaged the car can be handed to the driver, when the race is restarted for repair.
If you are repeatedly desloting in straight lines you will be asked to remove your car until the problem is resolved. This decision is to be made by scrutineering.
The use of tape, oil 3in1 type and zippo on the tyres is accepted at the track, the use of any other liquid is band, and this includes wintergreen, Mb slot treatment basically anything that smells must not be added to your tyres on the night. If in doubt ask.

This will take place at the start of the night when paying, your car must not race until it has been scrutinised.
A basic width check of the rear and front axles inc tyres, and the car will be looked over to check it conforms to the rules.
If you fail to pass (i.e. no wing, incorrect width etc) you can run the car but you will be penalised points (10 points) or distance (10 laps) off your final total (unless you are borrowing a car then the borrowed car rule applies (no points)
If you change your car it must be presented for re-scrutineering.
Random scrutineering will take place throughout the night.
Scrutineer's decision is final.

If in doubt please ask

Hi Shaun


You have stated that the max wheel diameter is 15mm for slot-it and NSR.

This forces people to change the wheels on a purchased model FRONT AND BACK as they have to be a matched.

Example Slot-it Alfa has back wheels of 16mm -.1mm. (not including tyre)

Hi Steve
The your right mate after measuring the (15x8 Lightweight Alloy Wheels - Small Saloon Size- Stated by wheel they are actually 15.8 ish. Now as im not going to be measuring everyone's wheels as i will be able to tell if they are not the 15x8 or small saloon wheels. The ones provided with the Alfa, Ferrari and GT40 will be fine as long as someone doesn't put a set of 17mm rims on and says that what it came with cos that will be illegal.

The out of the box, Classic cars front wheels are 14mm so there is no problem, they are within the maximum diameter.
The wheel inserts must match front and rear not the wheel size so 14mm front and 15mm+1 rear is fine.

The NSR cars will have to change there rear wheels as they come with air hubs as standard, the front wheels are fine.
