Default Ludlow Radio Car Club return indoors

It's that time of the year again when it's too dark and too cold to continue racing outdoors so we return to the school for our indoor season to begin.

Racing is done in the main hall of the local high school on wooden floor. the stage provides the rostrum which is perfect height and the canteen is used for pitting with ample tables/chairs and mains power for everyone. We have a small shop supplying tea/coffee, confectionary and canned drinks at very reasonable prices.

We run FTD qualifying over 3 rounds with a 7 minute final.

Entry is £4 for members and £5 for non members although if it's your 1st night it's free! We run BBK software and have handouts if you don't have a PT.

Schumacher yellow tyres work well in full spike, mini spike or mini pin flavours. The club has these for sale on the night if you're stuck.

The school is located just off the A49 at the north of Ludlow.
Postcode is SY8 1GJ
If you get lost you can call me on 07816 895164

the club also has a Facebook page found here https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ludlo...55964321106142 with constant updates/news

here are a few video's filmed by our members of last season's racing.

We had some good racing last night, I really enjoyed being inside again!

Most people seem to be back on the pace that they were last season with a few of them also having new cars, something to keep an eye on!

Thought it was £3 for menbers and £4 for non members though or have I been getting a discount?

Yup I felt right at home from the off lol. Frustrating to be off the pace, but Dad said remember everyone else's cars got put away during the outdoor season whereas I completed a national and regional series with the same car lol. Still awesome fun.

Unfortunately the school put our hall rental cost up, but we absorbed it earlier in the year. I guess with the bustle of 1st night back Kev didn't update everyone

Off the pace, TQ and the win G, you just wanted a bigger gap!

I think it's about time more was charged to race anyway, I'm sure I used to pay £3 back in 1987 when I used to race then! What's £3 nowadays anyway?? I'd happily pay £5 as a member.

it was £1 when I started 19 years ago

the hall was free for us then too

Vinny was all over me in terms of fastest lap. he was 0.4 faster than my fastest lap. I was only putting in the times because over the whole night I only needed marshalling twice and that was in the 1st race Like when I lapped Parry he held onto me for the rest of the night lol

Maybe it was less than £3 in '87 then, 24 years ago.....feeling old....!

I'm consistantly the slowest in our heat fastest lap wise, but luckily the other three crash three or four times per race to my once or so. They quite often slowly catch and pass me then crash and are 1/3 of a lap behind again so my average lap times end up the same as theirs.

I miss my racing, Ludlow is the only place I've raced at and it kills me that work is preventing me from getting over there. Was hoping to get back to it this summer, but will have to make a serious effort to get myself sorted and come back before Xmas.

That's ok for me! I'll let Rob know - he could have a new racer with him next week too.

We checked the video + Rob did come first in his final. Maybe he should get a pt lol.

Check our 1st round points Dave. I think Wes + Vinny's are correct, but everyone else has one point too many!

Myself and Westie will be travelling over from Hereford tonight.

Would it help if I give anyone my details, to aid booking in prior to just turning up?

Cheers,

Chris

Just turn up and book in when everyone else does, there's plenty of time.

Were you watching last week Chris, there was a couple of new faces there? See you later

Hi Guys!

Well last night was great, better than I expected.

Apologies for making the final round of qualifying a little more "interesting" than usual. One of my rear shocks failed, dumping its oil on the track. A little shock oil goes a long way on the slippy floor!

Cheers to:

1. Wezzer for the loan of a charger.
2. Westwood for lending me a pair of rear shocks for the final.
