We race on Friday evenings from about 8pm on our brand new track, which is over 152' (46.4 m) long. Our club cars and controllers are used for corporate events and for visitors.
We have members from 10 years old up to late 50s. The first week is free and it costs £4 per week or £10 per month thereafter. Juniors pay £2 and must be accompanied by an adult. Membership of Dowty Sports & Social is currently £20 per year.
There are many classes of cars, but most of the ones we race at the club cost about £40 new and are much quicker than typical home set cars such as Scalextric, Ninco etc. There are many aspects of slot racing including driving, constructing the cars and painting the bodies. To get to the top takes a lot of practise.
