Oval

Oval racing consists of 1300 Stock Cars, 2Lt Saloons and Classic Hot Rods. These cars are based on their bigger counterparts but are 1/12th of the size. They are raced on our purpose built oval which is only used by the oval racers, we also have a purpose bought carpet that we roll out every Tuesday night to maintain grip levels and keep the racing fast and consistent. We use AMB lap counting software which gives us an accurate count on all drivers’ laps.

Racing is every Tuesday night and starts at 7:30pm, we race all 3 classes as well as Tamiya M Chassis’ on a custom built track. 4 series are run through the year with trophies being handed out for the top 3 at the end of each series.

All of the cars are built to almost the same spec to ensure racing is fair for all and to ensure no individual has a distinct advantage over another.

1300 Stock Cars are predominantly smaller cars like Vauxhall Corsa’s, Ford Fiestas, Honda CRX and Toyota Starlets, however, other shells are permitted. These cars are fitted with front and rear bumpers as this is a contact class.

There is a set of rules that govern the build of the cars to ensure the cars are of very similar spec which helps keep the racing close and fun for all.
The fundamental rules are;

  • External Plastic Bumpers to be fitted front and rear
  • Diffs are not permitted but Z Drives and Alloy Pods are
  • Powered by a 4 cell brushed setup
  • ESC’s allowed with a maximum RRP of £35
  • Steering Servo to be a maximum RRP of £25
  • Motors Permitted are the Saturn 20t/27t or Mardave G2

2Lt Saloons are very similar but are based on larger cars like Ford Sierras and Mondeos, these are run front and rear bumpers with the big difference between the two classes being the size of the cars and batteries used. The 2Lt’s use either 6 cell batteries or LiPo setups which give considerably more power meaning racing is a lot faster in the 2lt class.

Again there are rules that govern the build of the cars to ensure everyone is working of roughly the same setup so no clear advantages are gained between cars.
The fundamental rules are;

  • External Plastic Bumpers to be fitted front and rear
  • Diffs are not permitted but Z Drives and Alloy Pods are
  • Powered by a 6 cell brushed setup or LiPo setup
  • Steering Servo to be a maximum RRP of £25

Classic Hot Rods are built to almost the same spec as the 1300 class but they have no plastic bumpers on them and any chassis is allowed for them. They use pre 76 shells so there is always a good amount of mk1 and mk2 Escorts and Ford Anglia’s buzzing around the track.

We also have 1300 rental cars, so if you fancy trying your hand at racing, we can get one of those out and you can enjoy a nights racing with the help of one of the regulars.
