Rockingham July 27-28: GT3 and WEC Digital Racing

For the 3rd time Rockingham (www.rockinghamslotcarclub.co.uk) will host a double header of DiSCA GT3 and WEC events on Rockbull Ring ninco track at the National Slot Car Centre on the weekend of 27th and 28th July 2019.



The club is located at:

Unit 1, Wansell Road, Corby NN17 5LX

https://www.bing.com/maps?q=rockingham+slot+car&src=IE-TopResult&FORM=IETR02&conversationid=



The event will feature a double feature with GT3 racing on the Saturday and the Rockbull Ring 6hrs WEC endurance on Sunday.

We welcome all comers to the event, whether you partake in either or both days. Rockingham can provide technical assistance and has several Slot.it controllers available, should new teams require them.

With free practice staring on Friday afternoon there will be plenty of time for teams to check out the track and set-up

Rockbull Ring 90 min GT3 Sprint Races, Saturday 27 July
As in 2018 the DiSCA GT3 cars with teams of either two or three drivers, will kick off the event on Saturday from 08:00 till 15:00hrs.

There will be one 60 min. Timed Practice session and two 90 min. races which include one mandatory pitstop of 1 minute duration.

Full Disca GT3 rules will apply for the Rockbull Ring GT3 race. No handout parts (although some will be available to purchase if required). You must ensure the 1.8mm motor ride height is achieved at tech inspection before both races.

Rockbull Ring 6hrs WEC, Sunday 28 July



With the Rockbull Ring 6rs run under the same DiSCA WEC Sports Cars rules as used for the Oxigen LM 24hrs, and with its long straights flowing techincal areas the track has significant similarities to the Henley track. As the track is only set-up for these events there is no real local track advantage making it a very open competition.

WEC 6hrs hand out materials
Teams will be hand out 1 motor at random (Flat-6 or MX-16) These motors have been tested, matched and run in by Slot.it. Should in the unlikely occasion a motor be defective, teams will receive a new one from the organisation.

Teams will be hand out 2 pairs of N18 and 1 pair of F22 at random. Both compounds must be used during the main race. Hand outs will be available on Saturday after registering at the race control.

During free practice teams are free to run their own motors and tyres (of the same type and or compound), we advise teams to mount their handouts before the end of free practice. This way you'll be able to hit the ground running on Sunday morning. If you use this option you will have to place the parts in the Parc Ferme overnight (along with the whole car, chassis, pod with motor rear axle and wheels)

Matt,
Please add team "TBA" in for both days.
Graham Eldridge and AlanWilkinson with a third driver yet to be confirmed.
The GT car will be a Bentley built by Graham
The WEC car will be an Oreca SVWorkz built by me
Liveries to be posted later.
Team name to be posted later.
Graham and I are splitting the entry fee and will pay you half each ASAP.
I seem to remember that being the first entry for an event in 2018 entitled us a discount or something for this event?
(Please confirm)

Alan W.

Hello Gents,

SV Workz or Racing for Belgium or LowLands Racing (depends on the nationality of our third driver),

are looking forward towards this excellent event once again.

Hopefully we will be coming with 2 options to enter in the WEC race.

Option 1:

Something new and different, hopefully a gamechanger if it all goes to plan.

But hey, when ever did anything go to plan in racing!?

This option involves a new model towards the SV Workz collection, being the Oreca07!!!

We will try to get it done in time, in the Signatech Alpine A470 colors.

Option 2:

Our allready wellknown and winning SV Workz Oreca03 in the Boutsen Ginion Racing Livery.

Statisitcs: 2 races - 2x 2nd places overall - 2x 1st places in class.

Hope to see you all there, and have a blast like the previous editions!!!

Kind Regards Tom

Tom

I have no doubt both will not only look good but perform far too quickly.

All

I have been contacted by John Ny from Denmark whom is very interested in partaking in the event and either willing to join another team, or band together with other interested individuals to put a team together. I have asked him to post his request on the thread, but I can also put interested parties in touch.

Matt
