Listed below are the various classes that the club runs and details for each class. These classes fall into one of fourĀ groups;

  1. Standard: These classes will usually contain cars come from a make that is raced on home tracks, such as Scalextric, Carrera or ninco but will only be from their full detail range. These cars will be run as the cars were purchased with little or no modifications.
  2. Standard+: These classes will be the same as the Standard groups except will allow small modifications such as motors up to 20k, alloy wheels, gearing or tyres.
  3. Performance: Cars that are designed as performance cars will come from makes such as NSR, Slot.IT, Racer or Avant Slot. They will be limited to motors maximum of 25K and below and may have strict rules regarding the gearing of the car. Wheels and tyres will be open as long as they fall in line with individual class rules.
  4. Performance+: These classes will be the fastest run at the club and will contain cars similar to the performance group but with a motor restriction of 30k. with no restriction to gearing.

Where open tyres are allowed there is still a club restriction that does NOT allow Ortmann or Silicone tyres due to the residue left on the track. Tyres must not be treated in any way including oil or varnish.
