Default 4WD Regional, this sunday at Stoke

we have a 4wd regional this coming sunday at the Stoke venue- IT IS NOT AT THE SCHOOL WHERE THEY HAVE HELD THEIR MEETINGS PREVIOUSLY.

On the "clubs" page of the website, hit "map" next to stokes name and you will find directions to the track, which is a new astro-turf facility. Further details can also be found here http://stokercmcc.netfirms.com/regional_meeting.htm entry deadline is this wednesday July 1st at midday.

If you are using a sat Nav tyo get to the stoke track it might not take you to the end of Loomer Road. Keep driving as the track is at the very end on the left. You have to go past the speedway.

Also, if you are looking at the map link I put on the website, the multi-map over head photos are out of date. The track you can see there is not the one the one they race on now, they have made a new one. All astro. many bumps, lots of singles, doubles, tripples and i think there is even a quadle

If they are using the track on there wabsite it looks fecking huge, probably twice the size of Coventry.

Are there any cut through sections to alllow for regular 1/10th lap times sub 30 seconds?

Has anyone run a 1/10th car round the track, how did it handle, what are the jumps like??

Only asking as i heard that truggys struggle to take some of the doubles, hope i heard wrong!!!

The track will be cut in half from what i can gather, we wont be using the extra section recently build.

I ran my Cat round early last year and the track was ok. I was jumping the majority of doubles etc so unless something has changed im sure it will be fine.

I was running 8th at NNRC at the weekend and the guys there said Stoke was a fair bit smaller than their track with lots of jumps etc. Their track did have around 45s lap times mind if I remember so it still may be long for the 10ths.

Not seen an 8th track yet which 10ths would enjoy bumps wise (although that doesn't amount to many tracks!), but hopefully stoke will buck the trend!

www.brca-midwest.co.uk

you can book in there. Dont forget to tell Tom and Stuart that you are North West. If you are scoring points in that region you cant score them in the mid west.

just to confirm, the track will be cut down in size it will run the section of track that was built first. when originally built it was 35 seconds long for nitro so should be about 30-33 seconds for you guys, we then put a extension on that bumped it up to 45-50 seconds but that will not be used, there is a a double that is easy to clear a table top a small double and a table top corner and a section in front of the rostrum with 2 small jumps and then a double right after, the nitro guys jump the first 2 small ones and then jump the double which when you master it is good.

i wil try to find a pic of original track and then you can see which one you will run

oh and just to confirm i have yet to see any truggies or buggies struggle on any section of the track or the jumps for that matter

hope you all enjoy

I've only done about 5 laps around there with someone elses 2wd car, but I would suggest you treat it as you do Coventry astroturf- BB greens seemed fine.
