Come and race at one of the best indoor venues in the country with over 30 years experience of running pan car national meetings. Chesterfield Auto Racing Society are running a 4 race series, sponsored by Action Model Centre for the following classes:

  • 12th Scale open modified (20 places)
  • 12th Scale 10.5 blinky (10 places)
  • 12th Scale 13.5 blinky (20 places)
  • GT12 (50 places)

(Places are subject to change depending on the number of entries for each class.)

The meetings are one the following dates:

  • Sunday 22nd May
  • Sunday 12th June
  • Sunday 17th July
  • Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th September, this is a grand prix style meeting with the Saturday optional, but recommended.

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, high grip CRC 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.

A few details about the meetings.


Entry is via this web site only. Verbal, email etc. entries will not be accepted. Entries will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Reserve lists will be kept if necessary. Entry Fee £10.00 per class, per day. It is only possible to enter a single class. We may allow you to run a second class on the day if there are places available but this will also cost £10.00. Note the grand prix meeting is £10 per day, so £20 in total if you decide to race on both Saturday and Sunday.

Payment will be taken on the day. This has been abused in the past by people entering but then not attending, so for this series if anyone enters but does not then attend without notifying us first by emailing they will have all of their entries for further rounds removed.


Doors will open at 8:00am. First heat on the line 9:00-9:30am. Meetings will be a minimum of 4 rounds and a single leg final, depending on the number of entries.

The September grand prix style meeting will have 2 rounds of practice followed by 2 rounds of qualifying on the Saturday, followed by 4 rounds of qualifying and a single leg final on the Sunday.

Mains power will be available for charging. We will try to supply as many tables and chairs as possible but they may be limited, so if you have a table and chair please bring them.

Your best three out of four results will count towards the final series results. Both qualifying and final results count for points, up to 50 points for qualifying and 50 points for final position.

An AMB/MyLaps RC3 compatible personal transponder is required, there are no handout transponders.

Action Model Centre will be running a shop at every meeting.
