Balu and Blackpainter have the idea to organize a Scalextric Digital event.
We would like to confirm how much interest there is to attend an event of this nature.
Our idea is to get together with interested SSD drivers and racers. Following are our thoughts on how this event would be structured. Number one priority is to have fun. The plan would be to begin the event in the afternoon and continue until every one is ready to stop for the day. Due to the time some will need to drive we will provide recommendations for over night accommodations. Camping is available for those who wish. We are a group of SSD racers. We drive the cars without magnets. For the event we will have races and time for open driving. The Raceway Eukradohr has a length of 60 meters, approximately 200 feet.
See our website
We use PB Pro SH for the track and SSDC software. There will be space provided for preparing your car and there will be PB to check the car and attach the ID's.
Perhaps we will build a smaller track for test driving. Location will be in Germany Postcode(41849) Wassenberg near the frontier
of the Netherlands. Next larger train station is in Duesseldorf. Closet airport is in Duesseldorf or Maastricht/Aachen (NL/D).
What will be better 2012 or after the olympic year?

So to check if there is enough interests for an SSD Event the questions:
SSD Event Europe in Germany

3.2) or Autumn

5.) Or without magnets
6.) Will you race at the Raceway Eukradohr
7.) Do you wish a Formula 1 race
8.) Would you drive to the event? We need to prepare for parking.

Hi Guys

some words for planning our event.
The location is at a Motorcycle Workshop. The room where the Slotcartrack stay is closed by. If you will come with a motorcycle you have Balu as Motocycle Specialist for small talk too. Also closed by is the pub of Balu`s wife. A really nice Pub. So alltogether is a perfect location for a SSD Event.

It exists a lot of event`s for Carrera slotcardriver but for SSD it is rare. So we have the idea to come together for race and multiple conversations around our hobby and perhaps more ... .

About us: We enjoin driving and racing without magnets. Our cars are made by NSR, Slotit, Ninco and Scalectric.
But Magnet Racer also welcome.

best regards
Reiner

Hallo Zen,
There are analog events with us some. In addition comes in Germany most with Carrera Digital. We would simply like to know sometimes who has interest in an event SSD on our Track. Every Friday we go with from two to eight people.
Besides, the idea of the survey has originated un would like to give simply other the opportunity sometimes with us to drive.
The whole one has no commercial reason. It is only about the fun and the sociability

Hi

there exist enouigh Analog Events. The Track is a two lane track. Two cars on it it is boring.
With 6 cars on the TRack that`s a lot of for race. It was an idea to bring Scalectric users and racers together.
We prefer SSD.

regards Reiner

I am interested. I have a 19 m. SSD track and race very other week with a group of 4-6 drivers. This is fun, but I would love to join some event, but over here (th eMetherlands) they are all analog. I am thinking of organising something small scale in the Netherlands for digital in the future, but since you are just across the border, I think It would be fun to come over with a car full off enthusiastic SSD drivers and have a good time. We mainly race with magnets, but trying magless once in a while. I do like F1 and think F1 cars should be driven with magnets in. On the other hand, It's your event, just taking part is already fun enough, no matter what type of car. Are you thinking about team races, or individual ? Longer endurances, or shorter GP's ? Keep us posted.

Hi Balu,

After seeing your track I would love to race on it unfortunately the distance to get there will be a problem, good luck.

It's times like this I wish my great, great, great, great, great grandfather didn't steal that loaf of bread all those years ago.

Hi there Balu,

How about sunday the 9th of december ? I am able to visit teh Raceway that, and I found someone to join me. You have my e-mail, so maybe better to discuss details by mail. If we leave not too late in the morning, we can have a afternoon of digital slotracing fun !

Very good Balu, the more the better, but If we are only with 3, we still can have a good time. And maybe I can find some more people too.
The timing is of course your call, but realisticly I would say somewhere between 12.00 and 18.00 ?
Look forward to your PM, than we can discuss race formats!

Hi thoefnagel,
we welcome anyone who wants to ride with us. I have some friends who go to ijsselmeer surfing(A slottrack you can build almost anywhere, but to surfing you just need the water, and the sea it is for us almost far away. ). They drive about 2.5 hours. When I type in the navigation Urk, he calculated 235km approx. We are about 15 km from Roermond.

we verwelkomen iedereen die wil met ons rijden.
