Funky Ford Cortina,

If you click on 'Wellingborough Scalextric Club' on the 'forums' page it will take you to our index page which has details on how to find us as well as links to a map.
There are also some photos of the track, but don't let them scare you off!

Race night is Thursday and I usually get there at about 7.30.

You will be most welcome to come along, bring some cars and have a go. We have club controllers you can use and also some club cars if you prefer not to risk your own.

Look forward to meeting you.

Regards . Mick.

NASCAR series has had to be postponed until after Christmas due to the later than expected release of the latest Scalex NASCARS.

We have decided to bring forward the next mini series for Front Engine Cars.
Series starts Thursday 17th November and ends Thursday 15th December.
Open to any RTR front engine car with a prop shaft drive to the rear wheels, cars may be fitted with Slot-It wheels, gears and bearings if desired.
They make for an interesting challenge.

We also have a couple of TSRF evenings in this period.
Tuesday 22nd November Falcon powered 1/32 F1 cars.
Tuesday 13th December 1/32 TSRF Hardbody cars.

If anyone wants to come along you will be made most welcome.

Regards. Mick.
