The cars that we used were the same cars we use on our monthly "Club Car" night. These are a 1/24 scale steel chassis which were designed and made by Ian Barker
, and we race these on the first Thursday of every month (your first night is free if you want to pay us a visit and get some extra practice!). Its always a good evenings close racing, and with no car prep to worry about there is always more time for a chat or gossip. Lap times are normally around the 5.5 to 6 second mark which is very competitive, and compares very well with a very good Genesis 1/32 car.
Motors are Pro Slot Euros with Puppy Dog arms, and maintenance is taken care of during racing by our resident expert mechanic Mike Read. We have six of these cars available so there are no real issues regarding reliabilty on a race night.
Bodies for the BOAC 500 were supplied by Trevor Crout
and painted and lettered by Eddie McDonald (Sprays by Mac).
We are of course very grateful for the help and assistance these two have given us for this event.
