Phase 5 of the new build is now complete and the track has been tested along with the computer system. Although the track 'surround' needs some work completing to make it look cosmetically better, the track is now available to those who wish to use it. One aim of this project is to offer affordable facilities to likeminded people even if they wish to set up their own club with their own rules and policies. You don't have to be an East Durham Slot Car Member to use the facility.

As a club we have been established for some years now and believe in promoting the hobby of slot car racing. Our new track in 4 lanes and 'each lane' has a length of over 218 feet (GREEN 218 feet, YELLOW 220 feet, BLUE 222 feet and Orange 224 feet) giving at total race length of track for each driver in any race '884 feet' as a race consists of 4 segments i.e. a segment in each lane.
The track is made up of 594 track pieces of NINCO track, powered by over ¼ mile of wiring. 500 plus square feet of wood have been used in conjunction with over 1,100 plus screws. In some areas the track is brightened up by 6,000 plus LED's. This has been put together with a lot of love and passion for the hobby.
Incorporated within the next phases, is the construction of a fully fitted pitting area/workshop for the drivers (20 to 30 driver capacity) and a cafe area.
For more information PM us on here or phone 07749379889/01429839453.

Will post some more pictures and vids later. If you are on Facebook, catch up with us searching East Durham Slot Cars.
