Next Meeting - Milton
Join us to race 1/10th and 1/12th scale electric model cars in Cambridge.
We race 1/10th scale Touring cars and Mardave/Schumacher GT12 cars in Milton, just to the north of Cambridge and close to the A14 junction with the A10. Races are held on Saturday afternoons or Sunday mornings in the Sports Hall at Milton Community Centre, Coles Road, Milton, Cambridge, CB24 6BL. See the calendar on the right for race dates and click here for a map.
Saturday afternoon doors open at 13:30 and we finish at 17:30 and Sunday doors open at 09:30 and we finish at 13:30. New faces are welcome, either to watch or to race. For more details visit our Facebook page
The club has an AMBrc automatic lap counting system and computer system which reliably and accurately records race results. The club owns the decoder unit and members should purchase personal transponders to permanently attach to their car. Personal transponders can be purchased direct from bbk Software.
We now have 2 “club cars” for newcomers to have a go with to see if they are really interested in RC car racing. One car has a “steerwheel” transmitter, the other a “stick” transmitter. We have recently had several youngsters come along and have a go with the track to themselves between racing heats. If you or your children fancy having a go, then come along to one of the race meetings – dates are on the right of the home page.
What age to start? Well, we have several 8 and 9 year old beginners, and the youngest is 6. There is no upper age limit to getting started.
Today’s race results follow. We also held the AGM today – Martin reported a healthy financial situation and Martin, Daniel and John were elected to the Committee for the next year.
The award of star driver this week has to go to Ewan – he got it together for his final run and made no mistakes (well, one) to win against “experienced” opposition.
We will hold the CRCCCC Annual General Meeting on Sunday 13th, just prior to club racing starting.
The agenda is the same every year; the current committee report on the previous year’s activities and finances then stand down. A new committee is elected to run the coming year’s racing, book and pay for the hall, organise special events like the GT12 Regional and generally manage the governance of the club in line with the club’s Constitution
Any changes to the Constitution or the racing rules may be proposed and will be voted on at the AGM.
