Our fortnightly club meetings have something for everyone. The meetings are generally a relaxed affair with a lot of friendly banter between racers. When the doors open at 9AM everyone usually helps in setting up the track so that no track time is wasted. After that the meeting generally run smoothly with 4 rounds of qualifying and 1 final per heat. We use very similar facilities to what are normally used for our national events. The same Prima GT carpet and track markers are used so the meetings are great for practicing on if you're racing in one of the nationals.
The racing is open to most indoor classes. If there aren't enough racers to make up a class race then we sometimes merge the classes so that track time is not wasted. The heats are created with class and ability in mind so that the racing is close for everyone. If you are beginner starting out or trying to push your skills to the next level, our club meetings are a great place to learn new skills and setups. There's usually a expert in most classes at the meetings so we can always find you someone who is willing to help you improve.
