Info Woodland Fort Slot Car Club, Plymouth UK
#1

We are Woodland Fort Slot Car Club, Crownhill Rd, Honicknowle, Plymouth, Devon PL5 3SQ  UK

The club was originally formed by a small group of friends who raced on a 6 lane, figure of 8 Scalextric track, I joined them early in 2018 and with a lot of help from the late Rob Lees we borrowed the old Four Lane Blacktop track (since purchased from Rob), this served to encourage the members and soon after another track was purchased (off eBay), this is the track we currently use (when COVID allowed) and the FLBT track will be used for demonstrations at events etc.
We race a number of classes and try to encompass most forms of slot racing, a standard Scalextric 'style' in Production Saloons to Anything goes 1/32 Sports/GT.
We also have 2 classes run as club cars, i/32 Trucks (brass/pianowire chassis with a vac formed 'Peterbuilt' style body, and 1/24 Sports utilising Parma production chassis & 16D motors within a lexan LMES type shell.
Anyone is welcome on our club nights, under 16's must bring a responsible adult, we have cars & controllers available to borrow or you can bring your own.

Obviously COVID means that we are currently not open but when allowed we will continue racing in a friendly (but competitive) nature

I will end by saying that without Robs help this club would still be sitting on the floor around a Scaley track, Robs friendship (I knew him for 30 years) and obvious enthusiasm for slot racing were the main reasons this club progressed, we will sadly miss you Rob. RIP

Welcome to the forum.

Very sad to read that Rob has died. When did that happen? It wasn't that long ago that I was getting bits from him.

It was very sudden, we last saw him in March, just as lockdown came in, he was fit as a fiddle, he was in constant contact with the club through lockdown,  then we got the shocking news early October that he'd passed away, the big C by all accounts, he still had items for sale on eBay that's how sudden it was.
