Well, it's got 4 lanes, it's quite slippery, it's flat and all on the same table as it were - there's no gaps in the infield for cars to drop through. Getting used to it all being on one level took some doing as compared to Pendle's excellent track known to most people on here. That goes uphill and down dale!!

Sean, here is your opportunity to put the slot world to rights mate. Simply remove all magnets before you post out the orders mate and that`ll sort `em

Looking forward to hopefully seeing this new circuit. Is promising to be good. And could help promote racing to the collectors who visit the unit! I like the look of the classes of cars we're racing. Hot hatchbacks should be good. Never had a reason to buy a Citren Saxo before! Think I'll have a go.
I'm personally against magnets, but they can help beginners get to grips with racing. But that's one of the only positive sides to the argument in my view. Always to good to have an extra option available though.
From what I've heard and by talking to Nick, it promises to be very good.

The tin-top class has been divided into 2 groups, group A with salloon cars such as Proslot Alfas, Ninco DTMs etc and group B such as Ninco & SCX hot hatches and BMW mini's. Most of our club racers already have a DTM car but may decide to choose a group B car and avoid some of the Big guns. Should proove to be an interesting class.

Does Group A tin tops include US NASCARS (old & new?) and Trans Am racers - not necessarily the Firebird Trans Am by Pontiac?

(sorry if u already emailed me these lists, but i can't remember seeing them in the attachments)

looking forward so this
, hopefully I'll make it on tuesday. But my dad is driving the truck at his works so I need to find a lift!

The first round of the Tin Tops will be on March 30th, we will have a quick discusion to finalise the rules at the club class meeting on the 16th. This will be your last opportunity to amend the rules and nominate the cars for group A & B. If you can't make it to the meeting please email me your thoughts so that we can raise the suggestions on your behalf.

A successful night for Pendle's Super GT first round, with a good number of drivers turning up. Racing was tight and this is only some of which i have heard. I unluckily culdn't make the meeting, but next week, we've got the first round of the tin-tops at the Colne venue.

The Group B 'Hot Hatch' Allowed cars are as followed:

Afla Romeo 147
BMW Mini
VW Golf
Citroen Saxo
Renault Clio
Fiat Punto
Peugeot 306
Peugeot 206
Toyota Corolla

of course the list may still be subject to change at this early point of the season. Many drivers are finding these cars a great chance to try making their hatches into 'Max Power' machines! Paint, alloys, body kits and all!

Congratulations Sean and Nick

Just like to add my comments after attending my second 'hot hatch' meeting at Pendle Slot Racing's new track. Some entertaining racing from both the club cars and the hatch backs. Although some of which didn't make it to the end… ok mainly mine, guess I was asking for it with those McDonalds straw exhausts!
Nick's well-presented green pug 306 took the honours. Even difflock made an appearance and bought a Ninco Clio (I managed to get 1 too). Look forward to racing there again.

So Well done Nick and Sean for a enjoyable evening.


The club's Indy Car Championship also kicks off soon.

James
