Entries are invited for this meeting on our brand new 41M (it will be finished on time) track in luxurious surroundings; we now have indoor toilets and central heating, although I hope we will not need it this August!

Pit benches are now at sitting down height so no more standing around (purchase of suitably priced chairs by then permitting).

The local pub is even closer for those of you who like a swift half at lunch time.

Keep an eye our SF Club Page for photographs of the finished track


1. Formula 1 cars from 1961 to 1965 inclusive.
(CSCRA Grand Prix Class 4)

2. Sports & GT cars 1963-1967 inclusive.
(CSCRA Sports Cars Class 4)

3. Overall Concours

£5 per class, Concours free.

Cars to be built to the Classic Slot Car Racing Association standards for the relevant period (See

Doors open for practice at 8:00 a.m.

Racing to start at 10:00 p.m.

Racing to finish at approximately 5.00 p.m.

Each class will be run to the same format, one run on each lane, best three to count for ladder finals. The lengths of the heats and finals will depend on the size of the entry, but will be at least 3 minutes long.

RTR entries are welcomed and the fastest in each class at least will receive an award. If there are enough RTR entries they may have their own finals, although it will not be possible to enter both RTR and scratch-built classes.

Your intention to enter would be appreciated. Payment can be made on the day.

Because we now have free access to the premise it will be available for practice on Saturday afternoon, time to be confirmed and if enough stay over I can arrange an evening meal.

Sounds very luxurious! but sorry won't be able to make it this year as it is my Mum's 90th birthday party on that day! (I tried to get it the week before but some family members were on holiday
Good luck and I will be there next year.

As we have only a smallish entry this year, no doubt due to the late confirmation of the date, I have decided to offer another class to make the trip worthwhile and the day even more enjoyable for all those who have entered.

As Oaklands has had to cancel their American Trophy Race because they also lost their clubroom and because I think that most of the people entered have suitable cars already built, I have decided that the third class will be:

Trans Am and NASCAR 1963 to 1972
CSCRA Saloon and Touring Car Classes Trans-Am Class a&b and NASCAR Class

But in case anybody does not have or cannot beg, borrow or steal something suitable I will turn a blind eye to anything that also falls within CSCRA Saloon Classes 3a&3b.

The entry fee for this extra class will be the princely sum of £3.

I will leave the format for this extra class flexible to see how the day goes, but at the moment I feel that we should be able to use the same 4 heats and ladder finals format as the two other classes.

Late entries would be welcome and here two more photos of the finished track to tempt you.

Direction to the new venue:
The Reading Rooms
Old Netley
SO31 8EU

At M27 Junction 8, and leave the roundabout under the motorway, heading south up the hill on the dual carriageway, following the signs for Southampton and the A27.

At the large roundabout at the top of the hill, take the second exit into Hamble Lane, (A3025), somewhat perversely signposted Hamble B3397, passing Tesco on your left. You will cross 2 small roundabouts. The first is the Tesco entrance and the second is only about 100 metres after it.

Take the next right, Portsmouth Road, A3025 Old Netley and Woolston. The Reading Rooms is a single story building about 300 metres along on the left, painted magnolia with a blue door.

There is only limited parking on site, but the Old Manor House Pub bit further on the right is happy for us to park in their car park as long as we park in the corner behind the hedge and there is some on street parking on the left before you reach the Reading Rooms
