Default The Iconic RC & Robin Hood Raceway Buggython 2016



The Buggython is a team build and race weekender, hosted by Robin Hood Raceway in North Nottinghamshire, over the weekend of June 18th and 19th, 2016. The chosen chassis for 2016 is the Tamiya 4WD TT-02B Neo Scorcher / Dual Ridge. Teams will need to bring a new in box Neo Scorcher or Dual Ridge to build as part of the event. The kits cost approximately £80 without the ESC.

Format

Teams of 3 will be given 2 hours to build their buggy to instruction manual specification. Shells need to be decaled to instruction manual specification. Each team will paint the shell their own unique colour.

When the 2 hours are up, the buggies will be judged in a concourse for points. If a team finishes first within the 2 hours they will also be given points. Teams will then be given a short time to finish off the buggies before a round of racing. There will be 3 rounds of racing and finals. Each team member needs to drive for 1 of the rounds. There will also be a 2 hour endurance race and other points scoring activities.


Entry Fees

Price is £25 per team of 3 with £2 of that going into the Revival 2016 charity fund for Parkinson’s UK. Entry and immediate payment will be online with PayPal. Links to online entry will be published in due course.


BRCA

BRCA membership is a requirement. The Licence costs £17 per annum and runs from December to December. It can be purchased online from: http://www.britishradiocarassociation.co.uk/

Looks like a good fun event.
Tyres, will they be kit?
Is there a spec 15T motor, like the HPI firebolt for example?

Neal, I think we might say the HPI Firebolt as it's nice and cheap and it's almost certain that a brushed motor won't last the whole event. I'd be amazed if a new motor made it through the 2 hour endurance. Will have a think.

Kit tyres, yes. I think a set will just about last the event but teams can bring a spare set in case.

Thanks for the questions. They're good ones.

Control Motor will be the HPI Firebolt 15 Turn Brushed. They cost under £10 and spares are recommended because I doubt 1 motor will last the 2 hour endurance.

I've updated the PDF doc.

The forthcoming Tamiya Plasma Edge II TT-02B is eligible for Buggython 2016


Just to share a couple of queries I've had:

Spares must be kit spares. No hop ups.

All team members must have BRCA. This is insurance cover for racing and marshaling. All 3 team members need to race.

After a hugely successful Buggython (possible the most fun event I've organised), I'm delighted to say we'll be back at Robin Hood Raceway next year for Buggython 2017.
