As promised to Ecurie Martini (and also awhile ago here when I posted dragster pics I think), here are some pictures of the track owned by SBS Club in Dottikon.
joergs and I were invited to a 'young timer' race there a few weeks ago and it was one of the best evenings racing I have had in a long time.
They use one format a week and each format is spread over a year. This particular evening was 'young timer'. Basically all bodies from the 'Youngtimer' series by German Company 'Whitepoint' and sitting on standard Plafit Small chassis.
An Example of an Alfa Romeo....
Whitepoint produce 1/24 scale lexan bodies to high quality and with little of the blobby image Lexan portrays. They also produce interiors, wheel inserts, decal sets and even their own chassis to name a few things. You can find them at Whitepoint.
The Club also supply their own aluminium wheels and have hard front and soft rear tyres custom made just for the Club by Ortmann. A new set or rear tyres is supplied to each driver at the beginning of each evenings racing.
This shows maybe the only weakness in the track I can find - it eats tyres - maybe because of the performance involved in the cars and the fact that the track is made from Formica so grip is high and the tyres scrub with heat.
Anyway, this aside, this is what awaits the racer at S.B.S Club....
And lastly a couple of other cars in close up, their respective old style Plafit chassis and a last treat just to show it isn't ALL serious...
