Do i need to bring anything other than my controller?

in short no, just bring yourself and will provide everything else. If you want to bring any food or drink then please do, although tea coffee atc will be available on the day. If you are driving and bring your Ferrari with you, then we have hard standing right outside although there are a few speed bumps on the drive in. There will be someone on the day to direct the car parking, and only Ferrari's will be allowed on the main car park. Parking for 'ordinary' cars will be behind the club house or on the tennis courts.

How much racing will we get on the day?

A full race schedule is now being prepared for the day, and our aim will be to give everyone as much racing as possible within the time limits. There will be qualifying, plus heats and finals but our aim is to give everyone as much race time as is possible. Final details will be confirmed once we have some idea of the entry numbers, which please remember, will be limited.

How much is the entry fee for the day?

Entry fee for the day is not yet decided but £20 100% of this money will go directly to the charity. We should have a link to the GoFundMe charity page for payment, so that if you are a tax payer then the charity will receive the tax you would have paid on that amount via Gift Aid, so helping to push the amount up even  further.

What times are start and finish?

We anticipate that doors will open on the day at 9am for driver entry with a driver briefing shortly after. Practice will of course come first and everyone will get the chance to practice on each lane and your pro club driver will be able to give you all the help you need. Final timings will all depend on numbers on the day, but our timetable will be planned around fitting as much racing into that schedule as possible. We will also have a half hour lunch as well. By having only advance booking it allows us arrange much of the racing before the event starts. 

Is my place guaranteed on the day?

If you have paid your entry fee either via the site or direct to us, then your race place on the day is guaranteed. If you have requested a 'reserve' place, then your entry is not guaranteed on the day, although we have made provision for those 'reserve' places to take any place for any driver that does not arrive by 9.30pm.

Will you be serving food on the day?

Yes. We have a kitchen and will be offering a hot and cold drinks, plus the usual snacks, crisps, sweets and cakes etc, and will also be offering a limited range of hot items as well.
But if you want to bring your own food, then that is fine. There is a pub across the road, but in all honesty by the time you have walked there, ordered food or drink and returned, you will will have probably missed some racing as our experience tells us once you have a had a couple of beers you may struggle to get back to the clubroom!

I have not pre booked, will i be able to attend and race on the day?

In short no! Unless you have pre booked then we cannot guarantee any race place on the day. However, there may be some drivers who have paid but may not be able to attend, and those places will be offered to those drivers who turn up on the day.

We will do our best to accept any late entries on the day, but this cannot be guaranteed, priority will be given to those who have already paid in full. So if you have any interest in driving on the day, then please get your name on the list now! Just call Garry on 01634 830062

I have a question, can i call someone?

Yes of course. You can call Garry on 01634 830062 during office hours if you have any questions regarding the event.

Can i attend before the day and get some practice?

Yes, if you are keen you are welcome to attend any of our club nights (First Thursday of the month) at any time up to race day. We race various classes every Thursday but these nights are for those with suitable cars.
Our Club Car night, again, first Thursday in the month, is the night when anyone can come along and have a drive of one of our club cars, and you first club night is free as well. If possible call Garry first who will be able to tell you more.

What prizes do you have for winners?

At the BOAC 500 we hope that all drives will be winners! But as yet we are still very much in the planning stage but are confident that a nice array of prizes of some sort can be found.

We had support great support last year from Richard Mack who very kindly agreed to supply some chassis as prizes. Dave Harvey at Won-O-Won and Ian at Betta Bodies plus many others with Missile making a direct contribution to the charity. Eddie Macdonald also painted all bodies for the race and also donated 2 ready painted 1/32 bodies as prizes too. The best model shop in the country Modelworld gave us a nice stack of various tools etc as prizes too.

As this years event is based around thsoe who do not normally race slot cars, we will be looking mainly elsewhere for sponsorship, so who knows what we might have in the prize fund!

Do you have car parking?

Yes, we have plenty of free car parking right outside the clubroom. Our car park which was grass has recently been made into hard standing with excellent drainage and we have also been given a new disabled access as well.  

Are you easy to find?

Our club is situated within the Grange Meadow sports area with other club buildings. To locate ours simply use the What Three Words app to find our front door, and those What Three Words are  organ.cheese.crust

There is also a map and full address and postcode on the site. If you are coming off the M25 junction 6 then we are less than ten minutes from the junction, just follow the signposting for Bletchingly until you see the Bletchingly Arms Public House which is on the right hand side, entry to our site is opposite.
