Event information
After one season of successful 1:32 digital racing for DHORC, further investment has been made giving the club the capability to host Oxigen racing. Whereas the previous DiSCA-partnered event used Ninco track, the 2023 event will take place on a two lane Carrera-Oxigen layout.

There will be a morning practice session, two qualifying races, and the main three hour race in the afternoon. Teams may be made of two or three drivers.

Qualifying Races will be composed of a 5 minute qualifying session to determine the grid, and then a 20 minute sprint race. The aggregate lap score from both 20 minutes races will determine the grid and rostrum priority for the main 3 hour race. No one driver may take part in both qualifying races - it's one race for each driver. For three man teams one person will have to sit out and hone their marshalling skills.. or tea making 馃槆

GT4 Cars
Any GT car by Scalextric or Carrera, built to GT4 Pro regulations and with the exception of the Ford GT, will be allowed to race. As previously we will also allow Touring Cars in this race, but there will be no formal category for them.

Since the last event, the GT4 Pro regulations have changed. Where previously 3D printed chassis were allowed with the intention of converting sidewinder models to inline, this is no longer permitted. All chassis must be original equipment with upgraded axels, gears and wheels permitted. Full regs are attached and can also be found on officialdisca.com

Teams must supply their own motor; PSR-AC6 20k double shaft. Motor modifications are strictly illegal. The manufacturing code must be clearly visible on the can.

Rear tyres will be hand-out Slotit 1028 P6, teams will be provided one set for the event. Tyre wear on the Carrera surface is expected to be negligible. You will need to have compatible wheels fitted to your car.

The Oxigen wireless digital system will require teams to fit a Type C or B2 oxigen in car chip to their cars, and use a Slotit SCP1/2/3 hand controller.

Traction magnets are not allowed!

09:00 Doors open / Free Practice.
10:20 Handout parts are issued
10:30 Qualifying Race 1: 5m + 20 m
11:00 Qualifying Race 2: 5m + 20m

Well done DHORC! Been wondering how difficult it could possibly be to install Oxigen into a Carrera track system. Never raced on it before, looking forward to this one.

Hi everyone

Seeing as the general oxigen community is approaching the roll out of 4.0 with the trial taking place two weeks ahead of Sebring in Best, I wish to clarify we will not be using 4.0 for this event. Therefore if anyone signed up for this event is also racing in Best, please remember to revert any equipment you wish to use for Sebring back to 3.0.

We will most likely be using 3.10 firmware on Chrono 1.0.7.
