Week 6

It’s the Christmas meeting next week so it’s time to get festive and let your hair down for the evening. Don’t forget it’s free entry this year and all we’re asking in return is that you and/or your car are showing a little festive spirit! If you would like to donate a little something to the raffle, that would be super awesome too 🙂

The plan is to mix everything up like last year so randomised heats with different abilities running different classes all in together. You can run what you like (2wd, 4wd, SCT, ST or something else. For one night only, it really doesn’t matter as long as we all have a little fun in the process 🙂  Now here’s a little something to get you in the festive spirit for next week…

Ho, Ho, Ho!

Christmas is coming which means the legendary FORCC Christmas meeting is just around the corner (Wednesday the 19th to be precise) and it will have all the usual fun, racing, raffle and of course the free buffet. As always, raffle prize donations will be gratefully received 🙂

Usually we charge just £1 for entry into this extravaganza however this year unfortunately we’ve had to factor in the negative impact Brexit is having on the cost of Chicken Nuggets so race fees for the Christmas meeting this year will be increased to £1000 per person. Now I know what you’re thinking, it’s “Wow, that’s still fantastic value for money but isn’t there something I can do to get some kind of discount?”. Well, I’m glad you asked because if you and/or your car are festively decorated on the night we are offering a 100% discount on your race fees! Here’s a handy table so you can calculate your race fees for the evening (Just pick your driver/car combination to work it out):

Week Something Or Other

Results Updated

So the new championship started last week but due to ‘Motorgate’ we’re going to scrap last week and this week will now become week 1. I need to reset the championships on the laptop before I can publish them so they will go up next week. The results from last night are up but ignore the Week 2 header as it will become week 1 as far as the championship is concerned.

Thank you to everyone that has made the switch and last night we had a mix of 7.5, 8.5, 10.5 and 13.5 turn motors spread throughout the heats.  We know there are a few drivers holding out for an open class but they will be disappointed. We don’t want to mix championship and non-championship drivers together or add another heat just for a couple of cars as it’s not really fair on everyone else. I was in heat 4 and watched marshalled heat 5 and I saw some of the closest racing I’ve seen there for quite some time. If we all stick with it, we’re in for some great races over the coming weeks and months 🙂 Don’t be offended if we keep asking you what motor you are running when you book in and subsequently come round to check you weren’t mistaken! It’s nothing personal… Honest… 😉

One last thing, no practice token means no practice. Practice heats are capped at 8 cars maximum to prevent the chaos we used to have of everybody struggling to find clear track to practice on. It really is in your own best interest to work within this system 🙂

Week D

Results Updated

The new championships start next week so don’t forget to bring your 7.5T motors and please remember practices are capped to 8 drivers, you must have a token and you only get one practice!

FORCC 2018-2019 Winter Series Cancelled

FORCC 2018-2019 Winter Series Cancelled

With less than 2 weeks to go to the start of the Winter Series, it is with great sadness that we are announcing the cancellation of the FORCC Winter Series for the 2018-2019 season. As most of you know, we have to book our dates nearly a year in advance and it has not worked in our favour this year. The 6 week championship became a 5 week championship when the January MKGP dates were announced as many of us (including myself and Kyle) have entered into it. 5 weeks was ok but then we found out this week that we had lost the February date too due to a mix up by the hall so we were down to 4 rounds with a 2 month gap in the middle. At this point, we had to question the viability of a best 3 out of 4 championship stretched over a 6 month period. We have not taken the decision to cancel lightly and hope you will all understand. We know that some of you will be disappointed but we also know that many of you are already planning on going to one or more of the Barham, EPR, 1066 and Essex Winter Championships. Watch this space though as we are looking at the possibility of a one off winter event and we are also going to start giving out prizes for the Wednesday night championships too so there is plenty to look forward too over the Winter season 🙂

Results Updated

There will be one more round of non-championship next week before we get back to the new and improved championships the following week 🙂
