BRCA Mid South 4wd Regional - round 4
HNMC - Ware - Sunday 31st July


Venue

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 (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 park anywhere around the track.


Times
The Track is open 24x7 (light permitting :eh?:) but the gates are always open so you can turn up as early you like. Timed practise will start from approx 7.45 - 8.00 and will continue till just before 10am, so loads of time for practise.

We also have one more club night before the event on Tuesday 26th, which you can arrive any time from 4pm onwards and racing will start 7.30ish.

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 (4wd buggies, Trucks/SC's - 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 (http://www.dmsresults.co.uk/)


Facilities and Track
The track is 99% astro with a couple of bits of wood and carpet for jumps :) Minipins and mini spikes are usable around the track.


Theres LOADS of pitting space (literally a whole field :woot:) but there is a small section under cover about 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.

You will need to bring a generator or 12 volt suply for power. Please place generators with consideration for others :)


The burger van behind race control will 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 10 and you can arrive anytime after 10am on the saturday. there is a shower block (brand new!) there and lots of facilities etc :)


the herts nitro model shop will be open on the day from 8am till 2pm with a selection of tyres and spares. If you need anything i would suggest calling on 01920 466995


Mini spikes and mini pins have been found to work around the track. It seems schuey greens are the best to use in the wet.

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 only have a small handful of transponders which we'd rather not use)


Trophies will be awarded for overall TQ, 1st 2nd and 3rd for the A final and first place in all 2wd finals (BRCA regional class) - there are no trophies for the open classes


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

Hope to see lots of you there!

Theres alot of sand in the astro, but it doesnt seem to have much of an affect on the cars because its so fine.

It doesnt cause any issues grip wise either.
