Here it is:
RADIO CONTROLLED DRAG RACING
This was trialled at Big Bang and VW Action 2009 and was a resounding success. Open to anyone to come along and experience the excitement of Drag Racing only in miniature (1/10th scale to be precise), from all ages and skill levels. So maybe get building those dragsters, they don’t have to be perfect (most are homemade) and we guarantee you won’t be the slowest car (we save Icky for that ).
Signing on will be from 10.00am both Saturday and Sunday, with racing commencing from 11.00am. The track will be set up in the Monster Truck Arena. (See Map)
The rules to enter the competition proper are below, however this does not stop people with other types of cars simply having a go, you are all more than welcome to come and have some timed runs.
Rules for competition
and so you know what spec to build your cars are below:
540 Size Motor (£50 spend limit).
RWD (Removing front drive shafts/belts will be fine).
7.2 volt battery (6 cell).
Driver requires 2 radio crystals to prevent frequency clashes.
1/10th / 1/12th scale.
It is run just like full scale Drag Racing where everyone gets 4 qualifiers, then go into eliminations, where the loser is out and the winner goes through to the next round. The track will be 40 meters long, so measure out those roads, playgrounds and running tracks at home and get some practice before the event .
Overall, this is excellent fun for all the family and for racers/spectators alike.
