Hi Toby, keen as ever :thumbsup:

location is:

Arena UK
Allington
Grantham
Lincolnshire
NG32 2EF

A hard stone throw from our outdoor venue!

Track size i cannot say until we've been in and measured properly as the owners have shows on for the next week, but will be announced asap.

From the pics i've seen and a rough measurement i have it will be in comparison to the other Sunday meetings held by regional clubs.

Track will be multisurface, the base layer is a cocoa matting, although this will have plenty of carpet and slippy sections thrown in to make it more interesting and a challenge for everyone.

There is no control tyre as yet, since i haven't run a car on it to see what will work.

What surface is the indoor run on, carpet or polished floor?

Frecklychimp
06-09-2011, 06:43 AM
At the minute there are 2 possibilities...

Mixed surface... carpet/matting and slippy wooden bits to make it interesting

Or...

there may be a chance of being able to build an indoor astroturf track for the winter, but cannot confirm until it happens...

but will definitely be different to flat carpet touring car track with a few small jumps

will let you all know asap and will get pictures up as soon as the venue is kitted out for the first club meeting, which will be early October

Thanks for the interest :thumbsup:

Here you go guys some more pics of the track.

Still a little tidying to do in places but this is the finished track.

The flooring is a coir matting. The carpet has been laid to protect the matting on the braking areas, it's not the prettiest but will do the job.

Pitting on a Tusday evening will be in this hall but for Sundays in a seperate hall. We will be running BBK DriverNet with a wireless network so everybody knows what's going on.

I will update another thread with timetable and details for Tusday's shortly.

tyre/setup wise stick with your grippy astro setup and see how things work for you, surface seems to suit different peoples cars with different setups to same car being used by a different person depending how much grip/slip you like, i ran worn bullseyes on a losi scte (the green and yellow one in video) and drifted nicely when wanted, but someone running new kourse kings on a hong nor 4wd had lots of oversteer,

best bet bring what you normally use tyre wise plus another set too try, ie minispikes and minipins, cord matting on straights is very grippy but corners are hard surface as its reversed carpet.

gearing wise it is a twisty track but quite open with a decent lenght straight (20m easy) so midrange ratio on pinions should be fine.

basically its a brilliant track to drive really good layout tricky enough to keep the pros happy while nothing to scare of the begginers out there :thumbsup:

What tyres are people using for 2/4wd buggy? Are yellow minipins any good?

jukeboxman
07-11-2011, 11:18 PM
One of the buggy boys was talking the other day saying how good minipins are - but I'm sure he said 'blue' rather than 'yellow' - but don't quote me!

The majority of the track has now been covered in green indoor bowling green astro/carpet/mat. Less abrasive than the coir matting.

The photo's really don't do the track justice.

Hi Guys

The control tyre will be any Dboots tyre.

You can bookin on the day, but pre-book is, as always cheaper.

Hi Toby,

When i went a couple of weeks ago i found the Terrabytes worked best but i think they might have changed the carpet since then. Hopefully Reg will let us know because he went last night.

Nick
09-11-2011, 08:50 PM

(off)roadrunner
09-11-2011, 09:25 PM
does look as though there is a control tyre to the dboots tyres, should be tyres in stock on the day from the supporting shop or from the club, from what was said on tuesday it seems that the short course classes dont have control tyre as the dboots sct tyres arent available yet, but definetly a control tyre for the buggys, (not sure if only applied to driven wheels for the 2wd.s) best guy to ask is SPYRO (chris)

Lots of people have Mini pins already - unless the control tyres are heavily discounted, it seems an unnecessary additional expense to force people to run a particular tyre, especially when it is not something that most folk will have in their pit box already...

Most competitive racers would buy at least one set of tyres for a championship meeting at other series or regionals etc so it is only a case of buying a different type... they will be discounted as mentioned in a post above and everyone entering the championship is in the same situation.

failed argument and a myth that racers have an endless supply of brand new useable tyres in their pit box already or one set of life lasting yellow minipin tyres IMO

i know what your saying,iv got 3 sets of used pins,thing is though they would probably only last one meeting,the dboots last alot longer(possibly twice as long if not more)after the initial monster grip:thumbsup:......

You were the first to make the comment so you got quoted and it was nothing personal matey... :p

The fact that the tyres can be used throughout the series means they won't go to waste like buying for a one off meeting too.

I think having a control brand gives racers a far better choice of patterns and compounds than other fixed compound/pattern tyre series and as there is a discount offered to series competitors it should save the drivers a few squids in the long run.

The dBoots guys have been great from the start with support and there has been a lot of testing done before the decision was finalised to make sure that the concept was good for everyone, the tyres work and there is already good feedback from those that have been testing on club nights.

The 2WD front tyre being open rules is a good idea too and allows fine tuning to personal preference... so half the pitbox tyre collection could be used!

It's just the fact everyone is used to ripping open a different branded packet during the winter season!

The A1 Racing Club crew have done a fantastic job of building the track/venue and the series is going to be a great addition to the winter racing calendar.

Adam Skelding

Hi.
I came up to the track for a full day a while ago and got 40 minutes running out of a set of dBoots A compound when the track was mostly hessian and the carpet upside down.
I then ran at the meeting 2 Tuesday's ago when the green carpet was down. I ran a new set to see what the difference was. There's more grip on the new surface than the old and the tyre wear is much less. After 2 5 minute practices and 3 rounds, they are still fine and being honest I would put them on the car for the first round.

Chris Doughty ran Terrabytes on his DEX210 and had no issues with grip through the same meeting, I saw a couple of people on Multibytes too, but my gut feeling would be that the Terrabyte will be the faster tyre.

My 4wd Set-up is here: (http://www.team-durango.com/pdf/setups/TD102011/ArenaUK_GB/DEX410_V3_ArenaUK_Indoors_Club_Night_Adam_Skelding _02_11_2011.pdf)

In all honesty, I'd probably put a slightly harder insert or 'Fuller' in the front than the rear to calm the car down a little on the set-up I had.

I run Terabytes on the rear and stagger ribs on the front and I think they work well...(for me anyway!)

What compound and inserts for the Terabytes? I presume no insert on the front?

who do I need to contact to pre-order some tyres for guaranteed trackside collection? And do I just show the discount tyre voucher email when I collect/pay for them?

spyro
14-11-2011, 04:12 PM
We will have a good stock of Terrabyte A compound and also some B compound for Sunday.

Just bring the email with the voucher code on for the discount.

Checkout Adams setup for the inserts used further up this thread.

Thanks

looks good venue and series,
the layout doesn't appear to have changed since the first pics came out.
does this mean it's not going to? either for sunday or the rest of the series?

it might... is the honest answer.

There are some more jumps being built at the moment to give some flexibilty, so at some point things will probably change ;)

Hi Michael

We will post a race schedule later this week, the usual 9:00 to 10:00 time slot is realistic.

Does anyone know when booking in is closed online. Dont get paid till fri/sat. Will it be too late?

Also is pitting inside or out? and whats the rules reguarding gennys?

Thanks
Michael

We will finalise the heat listing on Saturday so Friday is fine.

Pitting is inside and genny's are fine. I would just bring a long extension lead and turn up as early as possible to give us a chance to sort it out.

Cheers

Just a quick update guys.

The green carpet is being removed in the next day or so. As such we will be running a new track for this Sunday. :D

whats the surface going to be and will Terrabytes still be the best tyre?

Nick
16-11-2011, 03:53 PM
yeah tyres will still work fine on the other surface! maybe even better as the green carpet had the least grip of all 3 surfaces

spyro
16-11-2011, 03:54 PM

We will be going back to the blue carpet on the braking and acceleration zones, with more exposed matting, as some of the early photo's of the venue.

Terrabytes are still the best tyre.

The layout has changed 3 times since the photos were taken.Not by much but enough to mix it up.Just a few added jumps and moved the existing ones about abit. It Doesn't really matter which tyre works best as its a control tyre for the series.Most will run the Type A compound i would have thought.

A few people have mentioned they want to run a second car... so it only £3.00 for your second car.

Please booking online but DO NOT go on to PayPal. I will get the entry anyway and just pay the £3.00 on the day.

I will also do the best I can with the heat order to give drivers a break between their heats if running two cars. Not promising but I wll try :thumbsup:

Thanks

Chris

And no more green fluff. Please let everybody know that the green carpet is no more. :thumbsup: We have just used it to mark the infield areas.

The track also now runs anti-clockwise to mix it a bit more.
