Venue notes

  • Tables and Chairs are provided by the club; with a maximum of 40 spaces available. Please be considerate with your pitting space and don’t spread out. It will be tight, but manageable.
  • Pit tables must be covered at all times – we suggest a pit towel or similar.
  • Mains power is available at every pit table, no need to daisy chain. The exception to this is the tables by the club office, these will be powered, but with extension cables.
  • Entry to the rostrums is via the back pit area, not across the track itself.
  • Pull off area will be agreed on the day (most likely pit lane).
  • Charging rates will be 10a Max.
  • Lipos MUST be charged in a sack – No exceptions
  • Additive MUST be wiped off before your car goes on track.
  • Marshalling will be as standard, after your heat; If you can’t marshall, you must find a replacement and inform Race Control, or risk losing your FTD to that point.
  • No smoking in the venue, this may be done outside the main doors downstairs (bucket provided for butts).
  • Toilets are located downstairs. Please leave them as you have found them.

Entry Details

As per the last event, your first class is £10, and any additional classes this time are £5. Transponder hire will be included in your race entry fee, these MUST be returned at the end of the event. Having your own transponder will make life easier on the day, as we only have a limited amount. They are available from Kamtec at a reasonable £12.00 (search for IRace transponders).

BRCA Memberships must be shown at Race Control on the day. NO BRCA, NO RACE.

A one week priority booking period will be going ahead for drivers who raced our previous One Day Championship and existing FoDRCCC Club members. After this, it will be on a first come, first served basis. We are hoping to integrate a Paypal option when booking in to avoid the carnage of everyone needing change.

Keep your eyes peeled for entries going live in the coming few weeks!

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.

Venue Notes

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.

Specific Rules

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.)

Notes

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).
