Race Format

All three classes will be run to segmented, 4x3 format with qualification into four man finals. Qualification will be run to full distance driven in one minute, free choice of lane. Win from any final. The race computer allows for one minute between segments, drivers to simply change positions, marshals to move cars and "sticker up". That minute will not be paused except at race controller's discretion.

Competitors may not replace a broken car during their 4x3 race. At race controllers discretion a car that breaks during qualification may be replaced for the race.

Victor Ludorum

VL will be scored based upon a competitors results in all three classes. Finishing positions will be added together, lowest scores wins such that 3 will be the best score possible. Competitors must compete in all three classes to be eligible for VL placings.


There will be a trophy for best car in each class. Each competitor will vote for his or her favourite other car in each class, highest number of votes wins. In the case of a draw, the highest place car in the race will be regarded as the tie-breaker. Concours results do not affect race results. Cars entered for concours must be used for racing.


We will be open on Saturday 28th for practice, from 11am until 6pm. We are unable to provide any food other than tea/coffee/biscuits but there is a 24 hour Tesco, petrol station, fried chicken takeaway, noodle takeaway, and fish-and-chip shop all within 5 minutes walk of the clubroom, we also have a Microwave on the premises.
