UK HO Drag Proxy - The Inline Show - June 2022


The Inline Show is the second event in a four-event 2022 schedule at the Rock County Eighth Mile. In June, we'll be running only inline cars - the first time we've held an event devoid of pancake motors. The regulations and format are in the 'UK HO Drag Proxy Series 2022 Preview' thread here.

The race coverage starts here.

These are the classes we'll be running...
  • Micro Scalextric Street Stock
  • Micro Scalextric 2019 - Nostalgia or street bodies
  • Can Motor Super Stock 6.0 (new class)
  • Ceramic Inline 6.0 - Tyco 440 & Life Like M (new class)
  • Inline match racing & exhibitions welcome
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 via Trackmate Drag Basic. After the finish line, there is a two-foot shutdown with dynamic braking and a well-padded catch box.

The Format: The events runs mid-week on Tuesday and Wednesday, with racing through both days - usually with the elimination rounds on the same day as qualifying for each class.

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. These races are designed to be Covid-safe events that are accessible to everyone. 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.

Finding the my fastest potential 6.0 cars are all outlaws.  Ball bearing motor, shunts, Harden Creek motor etc.  All tuned to Nitro Slot rules for SS.

Now the question is: detune or tune up other cars?
