Hi guys and girls
The first running of the annual Slotcars SPEEDWEEK starts this coming July at the Monte Carlo Slot Car Club in Witbank, from the 10th of July until the 16th, an entire WEEK of Slot Car racing and Festivities for anyone in the Country to participate in.
The Guys at Monte Carlo Club have been working feverishly to get all the details and rules in place for this exciting new "Friendly" event, which the organizers are hoping will be held each year at a different club in the Country, and it will be a whole week long, from the Sunday to the following Friday, and many different classes will be raced, including an endurance race or two.
The Concept is really simple, and has been put discussed for many months, and the final schedule and rules for the event are now available. Due to the SAMCA Nationals events being held over four rounds at various clubs in the Country, many of the Top Racers had to turn down attending some of the events due to not being able to get time off, and especially because of the travelling costs. So the Monte Carlo guys decided to hold a week long event, with some very interesting classes and race formats, and which was primarily designed to allow anyone, anywhere in the Country, to come round, spend a leisurely 6 days at the event, and race cars and classes in a more relaxed and sociable environment, and not have the usual associated stresses with the short timescale that the SAMCA events are run.
Many of the SAMCA drivers will also be at this event, which will see classes being raced which have never been raced competitively, and rules allowing much more creative thinking to take place. The classes include 1/24 scale Sportscars, Formula 1's and Winston Cup Nastrucks, as well as plastic classes for Sportscars, Touring Cars and Historic Era classes.
The Week long event is officially open to any clubs in South Africa, and all the required rules and details for the classes are available right here. The time schedule is now also officially live, and if you wish to contact the organizers to discuss anything in the rules, you'll also be able to find their contact details here.
