12th scale National 2013

Pre- National Event 2013

As a prelude to the National event, see below, we are holding what is our inaugural competition at our new venue.

On the weekend of 5th / 6th October we will have 2 days to introduce everyone to the new workshops.

Saturday is the open practise day. From early (TIME TO BE DECIDED), until 9.00pm the venue will be open for viewing and practise. All electric on-road classes are welcome although we will be setting aside slots where cars of 1 class only will be on-track to allow more serious testing.

Please e-mail me if you are coming, with an idea of how early you would wish to start. Fee £5.00.

Sunday will be a full race meeting with doors open at 8.00am, booking in until about 9.30 then racing until evening. The timing depend upon numbers but we should be looking at 4 rounds of qualifying heats, followed by the usual 1 legged finals.

Classes to include, LPM12 10.5, LMP12 13.5, LMP12 Open Mod, GT12, F1, GT10 and 1/10th saloons.

Foam tyres only using a BRCA approved additive. No older, oil based additives please.

Entry by e-mail to stewart@trcc.org.uk only. Fee £8.00, pay on day.

Upcoming events

F1 Spring series

Starting on 21st March we are running a Spring series based on the F1 season.

On F1 race weekends we will run an F1 meeting with support from 1/12th scale LMP12 cars and on the alternate, non F1 weeks we will run a BTCC meeting with Touring cars supported by a GT12 series.

F1 cars will  will be 1S, 13.5 blinky with rubber tyres.

Touring cars will be any 4WD or FWD touring car chassis, 2S. Body shells BTCC touring car, GT or Mini. No “jelly moulds.

GT12 and LMP12 will run as BRCA legal stock classes. 1S, blinky, 13.5T or 10.5T respectively.

Each F1 / LMP12 event will be run as a “total Laps” event.

TC and GT12 will be round and Finals points with reverse grids.

Dates


19th / 20th October 2013 sees the 12th scale circus roll into town. Come and see some of the best drivers in the world race at Teesside’s new track.
Entry to this event is open to all BRCA members. Experience is advised but not essential.
My advice would be to get used to racing a GT12 or an LMP12 at club level before entering a National event.  Racing at a big national event is quite high pressure and you must be well prepared. But if you do enter, be prepared to have one of the best race weekends ever. The atmosphere is totally different from club racing but will leave you counting the days until the next one.
There are 5 classes of 12th scale cars racing over the weekend, the GT12s race on  both Saturday and Sunday and the LMP12s have 2 classes each day.
Saturday sees the slower motors used, 13.5 turn and 10.5 turn Stock classes. Sunday  is the “fast” day with 10.5 turn Sports class and Open Modified Class with unrestricted  motors.
