|Racing at Colchester Model Car Club 2013
CMCC race 1/10th scale electric and nitro touring cars on Sunday mornings between 8.30am and 1.30pm.
This year we are also hoping to run heats for 1:10 scale off-road buggies - more details of this will be posted in the off-road section on this forum.
Our purpose built track is situated in Easthorpe, 5 miles outside Colchester(nearest Postcode for satnave:CO59EZ).
Please see the CMCC website for detailed directions:
and pictures of the track can be found here:
Novice and experienced racers are always welcome.
If you have any questions about our club or RC racing in general please join the forum or pop along to the track, introduce yourself and get chatting to any of our members - we are always keen to support new racers and will be more than willing to answer any questions you may have. We also own 2 "club cars" that we offer to anyone who would like the chance to have a go at Radio Controlled Car racing on the CMCC track.
To try and make our club as inclusive as possible we will be running an "open" motor class in electric touring for the start of 2013 and a .12 size limit in the nitro touring car class (standard size for 1:10 touring cars).
There are a few safety rules to follow when racing RC cars and we offer an "Introduction to RC Racing" leaflet which outlines safety rules, race procedures and has some general info to help people to get started.
Race dates will be posted on the CMCC website front page and available to view on the "Race Dates 2013" section of this forum.
Looking forward to seeing you track-side!!
