Wavegreen Have you ever wondered what it would be like to enter a road race, perhaps some of you have. However in these difficult times it seems unlikely that we might in the near future. However perhaps in our "Slot car world" we can imagine taking part in such an event similar to one of the well known events like the "East to West Coast Cannonball run" in the USA. So I came to thinking with a little imagination we could construct a Proxy Slot car event based on a Road Race between the the South Coast of England and  North coast of Scotland (Brighton to John O'Groats run ). And if so what slot cars would be the fastest ?

With the help from some willing hosts I have planned this Proxy Event who will run the cars on their home tracks. Each host will run the cars on 2 stages to represent Highway (sprint track) and B roads (Rally style). There are 6 hosts then who will  fairly but competitively race each slot car singly to achieve the fastest running time for each stage, resulting in the combined fastest time to have completed the imaginary road race. The hosts who are either already experienced in Hosting or as entrants previously are Andy (Brighton), Phil (Hereford), Graham (Nottingham), Paul (Wrexham) Kevin (Burnley) and Scuderia_Turini (Edinburgh). 

We welcome any of you who wish to test your slot cars on out on our journey, to see if you can win the title of having fastest Slot Car on the "Brighton to John O'Groats run". A variety of slot cars are allowed including Sports, Rally, Supercars, Touring and Muscle cars which comply with the rules attached.
There is Class A for Scalextric cars only, and Class B for all other slot cars (allowed under the rules). The intention is to recognise winners in each of the classes.

All cars must be received no later than  12th April, addressed to the Administrator / Scrutineer (Nottingham), it is intended that the race proper will start around the 23rd April by Andy in Brighton. We think it should take 6-8 weeks to complete.

There is a fixed fee of £8 (up to 2 cars) to cover the "host to host" postage transport cost,  only one car for each class can be entered. Depending on the number of entries, any surplus left in the fees will be entirely spent on prize money.

To enter please send me (administrator) a personal message with details of your email address, and I will send you an applications form. Fees will need to be paid either in advance or included with the cars on receipt.
