We are anticipating being able to run at least four rounds of Round by Round qualifying, with best two rounds to count, in the event of a tie, best time will be used.
Finals will be held over two legs, with scores added together to give final position. In the event of a tie, best final time will be used.
We will have full power to every pit table space, no daisy chaining needed.
Tables and chairs are provided, please use a pit mat on the table to keep clean.
There will be hot and cold food available (costs TBD), but there are shops within a short drive away should you wish for anything else.
Timing screens will, hopefully, be setup before the event, so you can keep any eye on the current round and timing.
A big note, is that we use the IRACE timing system and NOT amb. We have a limited number of transponders we are able to lend out (<10 at the current time) but we are hoping to secure more for the event. If you wish to purchase one, they are very cheap and worth getting hold of from Kamtec Models. If you do require one, we will allocate on a first come, first served basis.
Lipos must be charged within a lipo sack and to a maximum voltage of 4.2v per cell. Random checks will be carried out before rounds.
Failure to marshal will result in your FTD being removed up to that point. We will use the ETS marshaling system,wherby you marshal the heat that is two after yours. (IE. Heat One marshals heat Three, Heat two = heat four, etc.)
Please feel free to spread the word out. We have a maximum of around 40 pit spaces available and it would be fantastic to fill the venue!
Normal club rules as found on our website will apply (language, alcohol, etc).
The FoDRCCC Committee is keen to hold an all day meeting in the near future.
We are currently looking at the options and looking for interest in classes and days to run on.
If you can spare a couple of minutes, please fill in the form below!

The committee is always listening I! We’ve updated the M-Chassis e, both Spec and Open.
Included now is the 3Racing Sakura MG Mini. This fwd rocket, is of similar pace to an M07 and, at only £65 plus postage, would be an attractived entry level RC for someone!
As with rrany rule changes we make, we always constantly review them to ensure fair play to all drivers.
With round 4 of the Summer Championship done and dusted, things are looking pretty sown up across some of the categories.
Open MChassis – James Bond has taken a commanding lead from Paul Marshall
Spec MChassis – Matthew Bennett has pushed himself even further from Nic Rizzardini
17.5t Touring – Mark Raddenbury has extended his lead but only by a slim margin to Mark Bruton-Young
Tuesday night saw the return of the Junior MChassis runners (who now have their own championship). Maisie, Nicholas and Tyler all running extremely well together and putting out PB after PB. Tyler heads the championship followed by Nicholas and Maisie.
Tuesday also saw a heat of GT12 cars for the first time in a while. All 3 runners putting in fantastic laptimes and close racing. Chris Hughes has taken the lead in the championship, followed by Mike Snelling and Martyn Waterhouse. Hopefully we’ll see some more GT12 drivers in the coming weeks!
A new track layout is in place for the next two months. Potentially a slower lap, but will we still see the occasional sub 8s from the quick boys?
