WBMCC are proud to present their Indoor Off Road Championships in association with our sponsors Schumacher Racing. Held in West Bridgford, Nottingham, on one of the biggest carpet tracks in the country. The Indoor off road championships have been very popular in previous years and after a year break the series is back again!

Dates: 01.12.12, 19.01.13, 16.02.13, 23.03.13

Venue: West Bridgford School, Loughborough Road, West Bridgford, Nottingham, NG2 7FA

The track is one of the biggest carpet tracks in the country (592 square meters) and with the addition of purpose built jumps and obstacles, and also surface changes, WBMCC offer a great challenge to all drivers of all abilities.

Classes: 2wd buggies, 4wd buggies, SCT 2wd and SCT 4wd (SCT classes will be only run If enough apply)

Rules for all classes can be found by clicking here (http://www.wbmcc.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=61&Itemid=69)

Pre-booking: Pre-booking for this can be found on this page. Pre-booking is essential for the championship so that we know that the meetings can go ahead. Pre-booking will close the Tuesday night prior to each event.

Click here for pre-booking (http://www.wbmcc.com/index.php?option=com_chronocontact&Itemid=70)

Price: 10.00 per class per day, 7.00 if you do another class on the same day.

Championship: Each event is split into two rounds of the championship. One round points based on qualifying position, second round based on final finishing position. Out of the total 8 rounds of the championship, 5 will count towards the end of series standings. At the end of the series trophies will be provided to the winners, we will also be holding an end of season raffle. To enter the raffle, each round of the championship you enter will get you a ticket, so the more rounds you enter the more chances you have of winning. (Please note that to gain entry to the raffle you need to have done enough rounds to qualify for the championship.)

Sounds good Rob, look forward to that.

Front shock tower protectors for this ( as required by the rules to stop carpet damage ) can be purchased from Jolly Goodz. I use them all year round anyway to protect the shock tops and towers.

Toby,

Yeah unfortunatley some other sports club has booked the hall for four hours every sunday throughout the winter... :cry:

We wanted to do it on a sunday but it was not possible. So rather than not having a series at all we decided to run on saturdays again.

I know it won't suit everyone but it is out of our control unfortunatley.

Thanks to everyone who has booked in so far :thumbsup:

We would like to ask that everyone pre-books as soon as they know they can attend as we need to know numbers before the meetings.

This is to allow us to use the small gym for pitting so we can have a bigger track :thumbsup:

Booking in will close Tuesday before each event so plenty of time to get thos bookings in to us.

Roll on round 1 :thumbsup:

I entered this morning! I was wondering what is classed as an acceptable shock tower protector? Would a shaped piece of lexan covering the top of the shock tower be ok? I'm running a durango 410, if anyone has any pictures of what they use it would be a great help.

Right Guys,

The good news is that we have enough pre-bookers to use both the Gym and the Hall. This means bigger track to race on !:drool:

Based on this then I am going to leave pre-booking open till Thursday night. Numbers are getting close to capacity in the 2wd class so don't leave it till the last minute! Get yourselves booked in!

Just designing round ones track as we speak :D

Dave Dodd

Thanks for all the info Dave, sorry for all the pain in the a**e questions! One last question though, do you have tables for pitting, or do I need to bring my own table and chair?
Thanks again,
Looking forward to meeting you Saturday.:thumbsup:

Robbiejuk
27-11-2012, 10:53 PM
We don't have any tables, so you will need to bring your own I am afraid. We do have chairs you can borrow, all we ask is that you put them back where you got them from when you have finished. Also an idea to bring extension cable as power is availiable but sockets are limited so usually everybody piggybacks off each other.

And a few other things as well.

WE still need more people to pre-book to secure the use of the small Gym, enabling us to run the full track.

Get those entries in please :)

Robbiejuk
11-01-2013, 04:35 PM
Good news. We have enough people pre-booked so we can book the small hall again.

We will also leave pre-booking open till 5:00pm on Friday the 18th so you still have time to get those entries in if required.

Looking at the pre-bookers I am suprised we haven't had more 4wd buggies booked in with the recent release of the Cat K1 and the Xb4 so if you got one of those for christmas bring it along and take advantage of the cheaper second class. :D

We look forward to seeing you on the 19th of January. :thumbsup:

Hi chaps, how many rounds to qualify and count towards series? I've done one round of 2wd and would like to change over to 4wd but want to complete this great series :)

Robbiejuk
12-01-2013, 04:49 PM
Well its five out of eight so you need to do the remaining three in four wheel drive to get enough rounds in.

Each round counts as 2 seperate rounds. Qualifying counts as 1 round and finals as another round. So the next meeting will be rounds 3 and 4.

Hi guys.

West Bridgford school are having their driveway resurfaced, so as such the next few weeks access to the grounds will be through South Notts college on greythorne drive.

Please click here for location of entrance (https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=52.919627,-1.143992&ll=52.91664,-1.140776&spn=0.013482,0.042272&num=1&t=h&z=15)

So for the next round, on the 19th the site will be accessed at the link above.

Turn into the college then immediate left and follow the drive round to the rear carpark, which is near where you normally park.

Dave Dodd
17-01-2013, 11:17 AM
Racing this Saurday is going ahead :D

all the roads to and from the college are used all the time and access is off a main road so shouldn't be any problems :D
