During Autofest we had support from the Worthing HO Racing Slot Car Club (find them on our Club Hub! – Ed), who showed off the Scalextric ARC One system to our visitors, explaining just how the ARC digital system works. Scalextric have produced a digital system for several years now, giving users the ability to run up to six cars on one track – much more fun than just two of you!
Brands Hatch in Action
On Sunday we had six tracks available to be raced on. We decided to give the weekend a British Touring Car (BTCC) theme. We revamped our Brands Hatch track (which you may have seen before) with some Gaugemaster Scenics products and Pat brought in some of his own track sections to build a circuit based on Knockhill in Scotland.
We also demonstrated the new Policar track from Slot.it. The track system was released earlier this year and is one of the newest track systems on the market. Designed to cater for the home and club market, Policar offer the track with 5 different radius curves and offer racers the ability to 3D print radius 5 6 & 7 if required.
The Worthing Time Trial Track
Worthing HO Club built a demo track as a time trial and offered our visitors a chance to race over 21 laps for a chance to win a BTCC Starter Set donated by Scalextric. The set was won by Luke with a lap time of 1:07:990. Well done Luke and we hope you enjoy the set!
