It is highly irregular to start a WHO event thread before the previous race has taken place.
The excuse is this is a bit of a momentous one. Okay, this is the first of some extra races at WHO (four a year - all in the school holidays) and marks an official team-up with Scalextric (the Micro Scalextric Championship UK). Both would be momentous in most people's books.
But the real momentousness of Wednesday 15 August is that this will be Gareth's long-awaited return to racing
As far as the Micro Scalextric racing goes, it's club cars and club controllers. More on the special Micro section of our website.
Should be fun. And with some January 2010 style publicity, we should be welcoming a few new faces to the Barn to try out HO slot car racing
