8 heats and it wasn’t even truck week! 😀
Some people are perfectionists…
Results from today added and the Winter Series Championships have been updated.
A fantastic day today and once again there were some great battles throughout the field with some of the Juniors had an exceptional day 🙂 Well done everyone and roll on Round 5 where I may live to regret buying a certain Junior some new tyres…
New 2WD, 4WD & SCT championships have been created. Buggies are the usual 12 from 15. The SCT will run all year and be best 9 from 12 based on running the first wednesday of each month. I’ve also started the Wednesday Night Heroes for both 2 & 4WD and like last year, we’ll keep it a surprise until the winner is announced 🙂
Round 4 is this Sunday. Doors open at 7 for those helping out. 8 for everyone else.
On the whole the driving standards today were very good with only a couple of questionable finals. On that note, if something happens during a race and you feel aggrieved, it is very difficult for us to deal with it if we hear about it 2nd or 3rd hand and taking matters into your own hands is never the answer 😐
No meeting on New Years Eve but we are back the week after on January the 7th
Don’t forget to get your BRCA memberships renewed (£17) before then (www.brca.org) and we’ll be renewing club memberships in January (£10 Senior/£8 Junior). FORCC Club memberships gets you into the Wednesday night championships and discounted Wednesday night race fees.
Happy New Year,
A few pics from the Christmas meeting
No racing this Wednesday but we are back on Sunday for Round 3 of the Winter Series.
The BRCA forms that were given to the club have been sent to the BRCA.
Merry Christmas from the FORCC 🙂
The last 2 weeks results are now up and the overalls for the current championships. Well done to Neil in the 4WD, Dave in the 2WD and Hog in the SCT. Worthy winners the lot of you 🙂
The Christmas team meeting is this week. £1 race fee for everybody and a free buffet. Awesome! Run whatever cars you want and get some tinsel and baubles them. Get those Christmas jumpers on too…
As always there will be a raffle and we would love you to donate a small prize if you can. RC, Non RC, Sensible, Silly or Alcoholic… it’s all good to us 😀
…so not results update this week 🙁
Great track, great atmosphere and some great racing. Who could ask for more?
As always, thank you to everyone that helped out during the day.
4WD A Final, Leg 2
BRCA renewal is due by the end of the year. Failure to renew will result in you being uninsured and turned away from clubs. Head over to the BRCA website and get yourself renewed before you forget…
Something a little bit different last night including a crossover.
Al reiterated what I put on the website last week including a beautiful demonstration of what backing off 5% looks like by taking one step back. As funny as it was, you guys did seem to take notice and the driving standard looked much better this week with the exception of Les who just wanted to watch the world burn, or at least his Durango anyway…
Joking aside, this was caused by the a CVD pin coming loose in the central drive train and it cutting into the top of the cell. A very visual reminder that model car racing can be dangerous and that safety has to come first. Well done to Andy for extracting it from the Hall so quickly 🙂
“Lipo for sale…”
Round 2 is this Sunday. 7am start for the track builders, 8am for everyone else please.
