This year named in honour of our sadly missed club member Bob Hill, 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 for the following classes:

  • 12th Scale modified 6.5
  • 12th Scale 13.5 blinky
  • GT12
  • WGTR 13.5

Initially there are 10 places for 12th modified, 30 for 12th 13.5 and GT12 and 20 for WGTR but this may change depending on entry levels.

The meetings are one the following dates:

  • Sunday 13th May 
  • Sunday 24th June
  • Sunday 22nd July
  • Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th 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.

Raffle

In Bob's honour there will be a raffle in aid of Weston Park Hospital in Sheffield. This will be drawn at the end of the final meeting. If the ticket holder is not present when drawn the ticket will be redrawn, so make sure you are at the last meeting if you want a prize. Donations of prizes are welcome.

Entry and Payment

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 £12.00 per class, per day. It is only possible to enter a single class (except WGTR). We may allow you to run a second class on the day if there are places available but this will also cost £12.00. Note the grand prix meeting is £12 per day, so £24 in total per class if you decide to race on both Saturday and Sunday.

Cash 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 shootout.entries@carsrcracing.co.uk they will have all of their entries for further rounds removed.

Venue/Meeting

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. Saturday opening times will be given closer to the event.

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.

We are planning to have a burger van available at all meetings.

You must marshal, or supply another competent person to marshal the heat after your own. Marshals should stand in their numbered positions unless otherwise told by race control.

LiPo Charging Rules

It is essential that LiPo batteries are charged using a 1S/2S LiPo compatible charger set to the correct charging mode. LiPo batteries are not to be charged at greater than 20A or the maximum manufacturers recommended charge rate, whichever is lower. 1C is advised.

It is strictly not allowed to charge 1S LiPo batteries to give an output voltage exceeding 4.20V, and 2S LiPo batteries to give an output voltage exceeding 8.40V.

A LiPo sack must be used when charging and this must be fully closed.

All charging equipment must be in plain view at all times to enable the above to be checked.

Non compliance with any the above will result in immediate expulsion from the meeting.
