CLASSIC CAR SHOW
Thankyou to everyone who attended this race meeting. The spirit and good humour of all racers showed off our sport in a good light to all the people who came to watch. We had several people who were interested in taking up RC racing at clubs local to them, and a lot of the kids really enjoyed the show- especially those of you who crashed spectacularly.
In addition you all helped raise £341 for Bloodwise, a very worthwhile charity, and West Berks Classic Vehicle Club were happy with our contribution. Also thankyou for all being ready to race and marshal at the right time and for making the meeting a pleasure to run. Special mention too to all non-members and members who helped pack away.
What We Race
We race electric 1/10th or 1/12th scale RC cars indoors on carpet.
Classes are Touring Cars, GT12 and LMP12, all running 13.T motors and Blinky ESCs (see Rules)
Cost To Race
Adult members pay £8 for a race meeting. Non-members £9. Racers staying to help pack away get a £1 refund.
Juniors are £4 for members and £5 for non-members.
Touring cars must run on rubber slick tyres. Sorex 28JBs are the most popular.
1/12th scale cars run on foam tyres.
Tyre additive is permitted for all classes.
Power, Tables & Chairs
The club owns enough extension cables as well as tables and chairs for an ordinary club night.
Special events of 35 or more drivers may require some racers to use their own stuff.

- The tracks we use have been evolved over the years to give a flow and a challenge
