The SlotRallyGB Championship has been confirmed for its third year, 2012.
We have some new sponsors, new events and some minor changes to the class names, but everything else remains similar to 2011.
We welcome Scalextric Hornby, Slot Racer Magazine and Avant Slot to our list of sponsors along with regular supporters, MSC, SCX and Teamslot. SCX will also be the official timing sponsor in 2012 and will supply stage timing equipment.
We also welcome two new venues to the Championship, AEC (UK distributors of SCX and Kyosho) and Pendle Slot Racing.
Both will hold new events expanding the options available to competitors and spreading the fun of slot rallying to a wider geographical area in the UK.
With 8 rounds now available, rules will be amended so that your best 5 scores will count to final championship positions.
There will be a new limited edition car available only to championship entrants.
We are, once again, grateful to Teamslot for allowing us to produce a short run of only 50 Teasmslot Lancia Delta Integrale.
They will be red/white and feature the championship logo and events all tampo printed. We aim to be able to sell these for £41 each.
Classes will, broadly speaking, remain as 2011, but we will be changing the names of two of the classes to better reflect cars available;
Classic Rally - (Sponsored by Teamslot)
80's Rally (Sponsored by SCX)
Modern 4x4 Rally (Sponsored by Scalextric)
Modern 2 WD (Sponsored by Avant Slot)
Pro Stock Rally (Sponsored by MSC)
Modified (Sponsored by Slot Racer Magazine)
NEW! Junior Championship (16 and under) - (Sponsored by Scalextric)
