Default BRCA SE 2WD Regional Championship RD1 - Sunday 16 May - Plough Raceway

As the title says, Round 1 (of 4) of the 2010 SE 2WD Regional Off-road Championships. As per usual there will also be an Open class to cater for drivers from outside the SE Region and those wishing to run a 4WD around. There will also be provision for Round 1 of the 'unofficial' SE Regional SCT & Stadium Truck Championship for 2WD (ONLY!) electric trucks, more details here: http://www.oople.com/forums/showthre...t=41755&page=2

To be held at Plough Raceway off-road facility on Sunday 16 May 2010.

Track WILL NOT open until approx. 08:30 for practice so please DO NOT arrive too early! The track is on private land at the rear of The Plough Inn, Leigh who we do not want upset by excessive early noise, thank you!

See you all there, don't forget FREE entry for ALL Juniors, U13's and U16's, trophies for at least the top three in both Junior age groups.

Oh and don't forget your BRCA Membership details please, Membership application forms will be available for non-members to join on the day!

The Plough is a delightful, 16th-century country pub, which enjoys a quiet location set back from the main road, yet within easy reach of the main transport links. The quaint building is of a traditional, local style with very ornate, original window-panes. There is a well-maintained, private garden outside which is great for al fresco drinking and eating in the summer!!

Address: Leigh Road, Hildenborough, Nr. Tonbridge, Kent TN11 9AJ

Located directly on the B245, just a couple of miles northwest of the centre of Tonbridge

How to find the Plough pub: - If you are coming from Tonbridge, head for Hildenborough (B245). You will see Leigh & Penshurst signposted on the left hand side opposite the Flying Dutchman pub. Take this left turn (once on this road DO NOT take the first right signpost for Leigh), keep going straight ahead. Under railway bridge the road will narrow but keep going. The road can be a bit narrow and windy. There is a sharp bend to the right with another lane going straight signposted for the Powder Mills - follow the road to the right and shortly after this the Plough. The car park entrance is just before the pub.
If you're coming from north of Sevenoaks along A21, take exit off A21 for Sevenoaks and Hildenborough and head for Hildenborough (B245). You will eventually (about 2 or 3 miles down that road) see the Flying Dutchman on the left with a road off to the right signposted Leigh/Penshurst. NOTE: There is a road to the right before this one which is signposted for Leigh and Penshurst but please make sure you keep going until you see the Flying Dutchman

Plough raceway is looking good chaps and chapesses!! ive been up at the track at the weekend with Steve putting the final touches into place. I wish we had a video camera, we could have made a Benny Hill stylee 2 hour film of us trying to put a wire for the loop through a hose pipe!!! (it took miles of strimmer cable, some fence wire, gaffer tape and a step ladder do it).

Steve would like to thank in advance Faversham Off Road Car Club for kindly lending PR their transponders, computer and equipment, also for running the AMB side of things on the day...CHEERS CHAPS!!!!

We have also been in discussions with regards to putting in a vegetable patch in the corner of the car park to keep the rabbits off the track.....this may have to wait for a few months yet though!!

Anyway enough of my waffle, hope to see you all there, cross fingers for the weather and i cant wait to run the SC10!!!! whooopie!!!!!!!!!!

Since I'll be running a truck and I may have a small influence on the heats , I can pretty much guarantee there will be a heat of trucks Don't forget that you can race in more that one class on the day so if you have a 2WD truck gathering dust, why not bring it with you for a spot of fun

Good fun -thanks everyone!

I'm exhausted though: running 2 classes with only 6 heats is pretty demanding!

Cheers,
Ty

Thanks everyone for a great days racing....

Really enjoyed my first time out with my sc10

There was some interest in the 17mm hex adapters i was using, i got them direct from ST Racing.

http://www.teamstrc.com/ebproductdet...inid=41&id=457

they do not currently have a UK distributor, but online ordering was painless.

I was running schumacher silver mini spikes and although i have no other experience with which to compare, they seemed to grip well.

My other essential hop up can be found here.....

Looking forward to the next round
