UK HO Drag Proxy Series 2021-22 - Race #1 May 2021
#1

   

After two extremely enjoyable series and ten monthly events, we shift to a bi-monthly schedule featuring six events over twelve months - four midweek and two 'UK nationals' weekend events. All the dates, regulations and format are in the 'UK HO Drag Proxy Series 2021-22 Preview' thread here.

The Track: The Rock County Eighth Mile is a seven-foot timed strip (1/8 mile in true HO scale) made from the new 2019 Micro Scalextric sectional track. Cars must be fitted with braids to run on this track. Power is set at 12 volts and 8 amps across the two lanes. Power to both lanes is triggered by a single switch firing a relay board. Timing is currently Trackmate Drag Basic, with Drag RC being prepared for introduction in 2022. After the finish line, there is a two-foot shutdown with dynamic braking and a well-padded catch box.

Sending cars: Aim for your cars to arrive in Brighton at least 72 hours before the first day of the event,  so they can be quarantined (if necessary) and then registered for qualifying. Please also pack in a small box (max height 7.5cm if possible) and pay for your postage online so no-one needs to go near a post office. These races are designed to be Covid-safe events that are accessible to everyone and can continue whatever restrictions might be in place. You may - of course - send cars for several races or the full duration of the series  - just let me know.

How to enter: Send me a private message or add a reply below. One car per class may be entered per person. Family members and friends are very welcome to enter too. I will message you with the address to send cars to. You will need to pay for return postage. Otherwise there is no race fee.

Overseas entrants must talk to me about customs forms on their parcels! The recipient (me) will normally be charged 20% of the stated value of the parcel, plus an £8 handling fee. As cars sent to these races are not commercial goods, I need to explain how to alert UK customs to this fact and avoid the fees.

Sadly Jaguar have pulled out of the sponsorship deal for the forthcoming season. However we are pleased to announce that we have been able to put together a deal with Mercedes who have agreed to build a one of special for the micro scalextric 6 Ohm, it is understood that the works mechanics have nicknamed it "The Beast" . This will be partnered by a factory street stock Merc. Laura's aging Aston will again be a regular for this season. It is also hoped that Al's Garage wil be able to complete entry's for the other classes running at this event in time to meet the transport deadline.

Everybody has to start somewhere.  We’ll be looking over our shoulders, watching for you to come charging up on us.  So glad you are having a good time. Rally

Bill,

Thank you very kindly.

The good thing about coming in last is you have nowhere to go but up.  Checkeredflag
