BRCA Mid South 2wd Regional - round 2
HNMC - Ware - Sunday 18th May

Last chance to practise on Tuesday 13th May


The venue for this round is the Herts nitro (electric) model car club, located here:
Westmill Farm, A602,Ware, Hertfordshire, SG12 0ES

google map here: http://www.hertsnitromodelclub.co.uk/index.php?ID=5

I cant say just how easy this place is to find, the westmill farm entrance is really big and obvious (its a pretty big complex). the entrance is probably no more than 500 - 600 meters away from the round about once you leave the A10. once you turn in, you will immediately look to the right and see both tracks. you can turn right into the field and pit anywhere, but please do not park next to the indoor pitting, please drop off your stuff and move your card into the field.

The Track is open 24x7 (light permitting ) but the gates are always open so you can turn up as early you like. Practise will start 8am and will be done in heat order. heat 1 will start at 8am. you'll get 3 minutes timed practise and there will be 2 rounds.

Track will be closed up to the start of practice at 8am

We will follow the fairly standard layout for the day, so it will be 4 qualifiers followed by a short break and 1 final for all and 3 finals for the lucky a-finalists

Cost and Booking In
The cost to race for those who are pre-booked is 10. Limited booking in on the day may be available at the cost of 15. The open classes (2wd buggies, Trucks/SC's and Micros - if enough interest) are all 5 to race pre-booked - 10 on the day. All booking in is on the DMS Results website here - www.dmsresults.co.uk

Facilities and Track
The track is 100% astro. Only Mini spikes are usable, ballistic or Schmacher.

Theres LOADS of pitting space (literally a whole field ) but there is now a larger covered area for pitting with power and lighting 10 meters away from the track between the electric and nitro tracks. Tables are there, but no chairs.

I would suggest bringing tables and chairs just in case.

Please place generators with consideration for others if you use one.

the burger van behind race control should be open on the sunday. Snacks can also be purchased in the complex on site and there is a McDonalds less than 5 minutes away at the hertford turn off on the A10 (and BP station)

Camping: all camping, whether it is a tent, motor home or caravan will cost 12.50 and you can arrive anytime after 10am on the saturday. there is a shower block (brand new!) there and lots of facilities etc

Our shop wont be open but im sure we'll have the usual suspects, inside line and DMS in attendance

As per BRCA rules, all LIPO batteries being charged MUST be inside a recognised LIPO sack (or similiar), anyone found not using one will be asked to leave (you have been warned)...

PT's must be used. We are on RC3 so purcie's will NOT work.

Trophies will be awarded for overall TQ, 1st 2nd and 3rd for the A final and first place in all regional finals, as well top Jnr, top snr. - there are no trophies for the open classes. If you need to leave straight after the final and you've won, please pop over to race control and we'll get your trophy for you then

Limited spaces still available to pre-book for those who not yet entered.........

Will you be running a 2WD open class? As would like to come and race with my son.

Also I can not book in through the DMS site so does that mean you are full?

16-05-2014, 04:23 PM
Hi Lee. There will be an open class, but it may be mixed 2 and 4wd, and it's not full. You probably couldn't book in, as i believe booking in closed last night (Thursday).

17-05-2014, 03:41 PM
Andy is quite right, there'll be an open heat tomorrow and you can run 2 or 4wd in it. i don't think we'll have another people to have more than one open heat so it'll almost certainly be a mixed heat.
