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

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)

Thanks Matt, for mentioning my interest in joining a team (or two) for both GT3 and WEC on July 27-28.
Luckily, Im not as awailable as I has been. Gary has asked me to be a reserve on his GT3 team on saturday. Happy to be at service, Gary ..... and it might be the closest I ever get to a real DiSCA race ..... and it brings me to to the land of great pubs.
So, Ill be there for sure. But what do I do on Sunday? Well, you never know. Im pretty good at marshalling, no good at the electrics and allways winning (it sort of sticks to me ...... sorry, got carried away there). Contact me, JohnNy is the name, here, through Matt or through Gary or +45 51 24 90 60

Do we have a venue for the Saturday night curry ?
At the moment Alan, I am a lone voice for a curry with 5 others saying we should go to the local Weatherspoons which apparently is not only very reasonably priced but the food is good. Have to say I have never frequented such an establishment but happy to experience it and be persuaded it is a good choice.
Matt
Right, time to focus on this event now that our national GT3 round is completed.

I have had a three more enquiries about places which are still available.

Rockingham WEC entry secured.

Actions required:

1) Can teams whom have expressed an interest but not confirmed please confirm by payment and complete the online entry form.

2) please let me know how many would like to join in a meal out on the Saturday evening. There is a push to go to local cheap horse meat outlet Weatherspoons which will not require booking (never been before, but I am a snob), or if I need to book will do so in first week of July, so that is your deadline.
I am going to order the hand out parts this weekend so can those teams who have expressed an interest, or anyone else, either confirm their entry via completing the online entry form and pay, or withdraw.

Thanks
Matt
Matt,
We've landed on a livery for the Oreca.
The livery also gives us the team name. "The Gas Monkeys".

Saturday night meal. Curry. Who would like to join me?
why, are you falling apart? Am I allowed to bring the Mrs?
Matt, add myself and Ruth to the list for curry.
Hi Matt,

Could you add Christine and myself to the "curry list".

Regards,

John
Everyone is welcome, don't think we can class ourselves as an exclusive group. In fact it will give us more street cred to show at least some of us have the ability to pull and keep a woman.

I will post the entry list participants this week and also the firmware we will use which will basically be the latest available as that is what we used at Henley without issues.
