Week 2

After 5 weeks of fine tuning and setting up the cars in non championship weeks, we are now into week 2 of the championship, the results are updated. I need to tidy away the old results and will do that next week. The video files are up on our YouTube, please share our social media streams and increase peoples awareness of our fantastic hobby, it needs us all as a team to promote our club and our sport. Thank you. Mark

Week 13 and 14

Hi everyone, apologies from me for forgetting to post here that I had uploaded last weeks results, hopefully you found out by clicking on the results anyway πŸ™‚
I have uploaded this week results, 14 weeks down, 1 week to go, rememeber it’s your best 12 of the 15 so it doesn’t hurt to have an amazing last week to see where you finish overall!! πŸ™‚ Good luck everyone.

Kyle Moon (Who is the 2WD South-East Regional series Champion, https://www.facebook.com/willspeedracing/posts/3067146383537969) is tied together with Matthew, it will be right down to the wire in an exciting championship finish. Good luck.

See you all next week folks, cheers, Mark

Week 12

What an amazing night last night! Thank you everyone!
We had 33 2wd racers and 8 4wd racers!! Brilliant to see people returning to the hobby, we hope you had a great evening and to see some old friends visiting as well. Thank you everyone.

Pictures from the pits this week on Instagram, results on the webpage and videos on YouTube, I ran an external battery last night which worked well in terms of not having to disrupt racing to change it, but I think a couple of races were impacted by the camera overheating a little so maybe not all races were captured in full.
Really looking forward to next week, remember it’s the first of the month so TRUCK WEEK!! Sure to be lots of fun.
Cheers, Mark

Week 10

Thank you all for another great weeks racing, except for me destroying my front bulkhead at the end of the straight! Ahhh well that’s why we have these toys eh, plenty of wrench time to get ready for Wednesday.

This week we had 26 2WD racers along with 7 4WD racers. If you have taken any pictures and you’d like to share them with me and I can upload them to our Instagram page, you can email or message me on the number on the site.

I’ve uploaded the results with some really great close racing times this week. As we approach and pass the 12 week threshold remember that the overall championship takes your best 12 of the 15, so now is the time to really lock in those consistent finishes and points.

Good luck all, thank you, Mark

Week 9 – Truck week

Thank you to everyone for an amazing nights racing! We had 29 2wd racers tonight, which gave us 5 heats of racing with juniors through to seniors racing wheel to wheel. We had 6 4wd racers this week all in the one heat which had some superb racing going on. James is another of our junior drivers and with a second place and then two firsts he takes the night, great work! Then onto the fun section of the evening, the trucks! 10 drivers split across two heats and some good racing, much cleaner and some good championship points earned, thank you everyone. Great night, looking forward to next week. With 8 heats of racing meaning 3 rounds of 8 heats at 5 minutes, the Go-pro battery was not going to last the duration, so I only filmed the final rounds.
Pictures from the grid this week on Instagram, get yourselves over there, remember to follow us. Our Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/faversham_forcc/
Videos from the GoPro over on YouTube, again the ramps weren’t in a position where I felt I could safely grab some slow motion so none this time round. Our YouTube – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFVX3r29hjLPg3nMK-RJugg/videos
The results have been updated and are available on the results page on the site.

week 8

Another cracking nights racing on Wednesday night. Thank you for coming and supporting us, 5 heats of 2 Wheel drive action with 29 drivers and 2 heats of 4 Wheel drive action with 8 drivers. A special mention to our youngest driver George, at only 4 years old he is putting in double figure rounds consistently over the last two weeks! Great driving, not long before you’ll be beating dad, just like your brother! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Please remember next week is truck week! I’d remind everyone it is a championship so please try to remember no demolition derby this time, I’ll promise to try not jump the ropes or attack Alan this week! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Thank you all, Mark.

Week 7

Back to the normal racing this week after last weeks little break. Thank you to Jon for his support with FORCC and we hope you enjoy the little gift as you focus more on the racing than the admin! πŸ™‚

The results are updated on the usual results page on the site, and a huge thank you to everyone for turning out and supporting us every week. I appreciate it’s been extra tough with Operation Brock and getting through Faversham and we are grateful for your support.

The pictures I took of the starting grids have been uploaded to our Instagram account, please pop over and give us a follow, thank you. Our Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/faversham_forcc/

I have also uploaded all the slowmotion and superslowmotion video footage that I took that night to our YouTube account, again please follow and subscribe to the account. I found it extrememly interesting seeing the amount of flex in some cars over others as well as the different lnes used by different drivers. Obviously as this was a first attempt I’ve gone a little overkill practicing, but there is some great footage of flying cars!

Looking forward to next week, see you all soon, cheers, Mark.

Alan Party/Christmas

Well, what can we say, FORCC put on a night to remember!!

I’d like to say a huge thank you to Ness, Jodie, Kyle, Kay and Dave for helping to give Alan β€œThe man of the hour” Moon, a great retirement night from committee work with FORCC after OVER 30 YEARS of service. Alan will still be racing with us and reminding you to put stuff away at the end of the night so don’t be expecting an easy time and for him to quietly disappear into the background πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ …

Sadly Jon could not be with us on the night as he is away with his family, but our sincere thanks extend to him for all of his service to FORCC over the years too, hopefully, Jon like Alan, will now enjoy being more focused on racing and having less to do with the administration side of the club.

A massive thank you to old friends and racers who made a huge effort to make the night so special for Alan. Hopefully we will see you all soon at another party! Thank you to Mark (Willspeed) for the video, please check it out!! https://youtu.be/nuAx0rs7JkI

Additionally thank you to Carly and Claire for helping with the raffle, to Richard and others who donated to the raffle prizes and to you, the many members of this club for your continued support throughout Covid and with keeping this great clubs wheels turning!

Week 6 results

What a cracking night we had on Wednesday with 46 drivers across 3 classes!! Remember we do welcome all ages and abilities at FORCC! It was great to see so many junior drivers attending during half term, we hope they had a lot of fun!
It’s safe to say, with all 10 trucks in one heat it was a busy night for the Marshalls too! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
Now that said, I do have to keep us grounded, and I’ll admit to being a culprit aiming at Mr Moon and Andrews πŸ˜‰ it was a lot of fun and a great laugh, BUT, it is critically important to remember MARSHAL safety is a priority and we DO NOT want anyone seriously injured, a marshal was hurt on Wednesday night, thankfully not too seriously, but a timely reminder about safety please. These are not just our toys that we have invested money in getting going/upgrading and refining, but it is a championship with points making prizes to be won and lost, so congratulations to Matthew and Hattie for staying out of the carnage and scoring good points. Let’s dial it down a little next month and leave the banger racing to the actual banger racers πŸ™‚
