Come and race at one of the best indoor venues in the country with over 35 years experience of running pan car national meetings. Chesterfield Auto Racing Society are running a grand prix meeting for the following classes:

  • 12th Scale 13.5 blinky
  • 12th Scale 17.5 blinky
  • GT12

There are 42 places available in total so split between classes (possibly more if family members attend).

The meeting is on the following dates:

Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th September, this is a 2 day grand prix style meeting.

Venue :- Sharley Park Leisure Centre, Market Street, Clay Cross, Derbyshire S45 9LX, easily accessible from junctions 28 and 29 of the M1. We will be setting up and running a club night the night before the first 3 rounds so you can come and race then too! We have very good lighting, new Prima GT carpet and an extremely flat floor making it one of the very best tracks to race on in the UK. This is also the perfect opportunity to test and practice for next season’s 12th scale and GT12 nationals. There is always a friendly and helpful atmosphere and all abilities are welcome. We hope to see you there.
