View Full Version : Melton Model Show - 25/26 September

Hi guys,

We have been invited back to race at the Melton Model Show again this year, which takes place on the weekend of 25/26 September. Last year this was a great event, featuring model aeroplanes, helicopters, slot car racing and of course ourselves racing model cars for 2 days.

It all takes place on the field adjacent to Tesco in Melton Mowbray, so lunch is easy to find! The racing will be free and informal for all classes of off-road RC cars, all scales and either electric or IC powered. Last year we had 1/10 electric buggies, 1/10 electric trucks, 1/8 IC trucks and even a couple of 1/5 petrol buggies.

We have some varied events in mind for this year, ranging from the usual 5-minute racing format to some other more creative ideas prompted by some informal discussions in the pub last Friday, based on the theme of an "RC Olympics":

RC high-jump
RC long-jump
RC triple-jump
RC hurdles
RC team relay
RC team pursuit
RC bungee-running (OK, it's not an Olympic sport but it should be fun)
RC egg & spoon race (again, not an Olympic sport, but it jolly well should be!)
We decided that the RC javelin was probably too dangerous for a public event.
So, if you're free then put the date in your diary for the weekend of 25/26 September.

Just change the weekend that you move then you plonker. :lol:

I have 'borrowed' some ramps that are even bigger than the mega ramp of death for this event. They are so big I have also had to borrow a mercedes long wheelbase hightop sprinter to fit them in, and I am not joking. :thumbsup:

So, how are we getting all the kit there next weekend?

Lloyd, are you still bringing the mega-mega-ramps-of-death with you?

The outdoor track markings are in the container at the rugby club, so we'll need to load them up ideally on the Friday night before I guess, then collect the ramps from the shed at the school.

Are we still using Wes' van or not now he's gone & got married today?

I've got the van for us to use. Only problem is i'm going to Hastings this week but i'm hoping to be racing Friday. If i can't make it i'll try and sort something with Pat so he can use the Van. :thumbsup:

Just to reassure people as at present the weather sounds like I have upset God himself, bbc weather looks ok for tmz and sun.

Rob are we able to use the timing gear? I am worried that constant unlimited runs might fry lipos. Would be good if we could run 5 min heats?
What you think?

I am so going to phone you up at 7:30 am tommorow Mark (looks up Vardy in the phone book)...

Yes we will be taking the timing equipment and PA etc. Might have a problem getting the transponders charged up though so if you have a PT bring it with you. We can always stick them on charge. Need to make sure we take the Genny for power to.

Well a big thanks must go to everyone who attended and helped out this year and made it a really fun couple of days.

Special mention should go to "les miserables" Pat for sorting it all out again. Roll on next year.

yes thank you wes :lol:


had a great time, shame it was cut short :(

not very scale planes if they cant fly in a few spots of rain ;)

That flyby was a real one not an rc one, but what a cop out.

Like Pat said, they wouldn't have stopped the battle of Britain for a few spots of rain. Besides weather was actually nice I thought. For once......
