Tyre maximum/minimum width and minimum diameter
Maximum width
Motor orientation

We will be reasonably tolerant about scale wheelbase measurements for RTR cars.

Event Format

Concours d’elegance

There will be a Concours competition for each of the three Events with an award for the winner of each. There will be no separate awards for each class within each event.

The decision as to which class within each Event you wish to enter must be made before the Concours competition begins. You can enter one car only into the Concours competition for each Event and you must race your Concours entry.

At the conclusion of the Concours competition all cars will go into parc ferme and may only be removed when required for racing.

All races will run to a Segmented Format.
3minutes on each lane – total distance covered in the 12 minutes to decide the winner.
Win from any heat.
Drivers may only race 1 car in each Event.
Should any driver suffer a total car failure Race Control shall have the discretion to allow a replacement car to be used. This is discretionary and the replacement car must be of the same class and must not be used by any other competitor.

Within each Event we will group cars from the same class together as best we can to make up the heats. Ie: Brooklands cars race with Brooklands cars, Pre war GP cars race with pre war GP cars etc.

Please indicate on this thread if you wish to have an entry.
The decision on which classes you wish to enter within each event need not be made until signing on and technical inspection on race morning.

Entry fee £5 per Event.
Payment on the day.

Details of the club location and how to find us can be found on the
Rockingham Slot Car Club website.
Details of the Classic Slot Car Racing Association Car Standards can be found on the CSCRA website.

Important addition to the above post!

We have decided to invite proxy entries to the 2022 Event.

As we always run the ‘Winter Classic’ to a segmented format we can run any the proxy entries before the day of the event and the scores can be included on the day of the race.

All proxy entries will be entered into the Concours competition on race day.

If you would like a proxy entry please send a PM to

on SlotForum

loudbloke is David Farrow and he will be organising the proxy entries and will explain how to get the cars to us and answer any questions you may have.
