Pre '74 Classics, Aldersley track...
 
Slot.it Matra-Simca's took the first three places in Friday's Classic sports races, Winner Chris's fastest lap times with a Parma resistor controller were only a tenth-of-second or so slower than with last season's TruSpeed PWM electronic. Just goes to show that it's possible to run fast with a 20k rpm motor and a budget controller! Here are the race stats. 
 
Heats (4x4-minutes, YGRB lanes) - 1. Chris 139.76 laps (Slot.it Matra-Simca), 2. Nick H 136.15 (Slot.it Matra-Simca), 3. Richy 134.60 (Slot.it Matra-Simca), 4.

Open GT's, Aldersley track... 
 
With 10 drivers on the grid only 4 of the Aldersley track's 5 lanes were used for last Friday's Open GT racing. Richy and Chris traded fastest laps (6.4's on Yellow and Green lanes) with the top 8 drivers all running on a sub-seven second pace. But where it counted most i.e. keeping the car on the track - a consistent performance across all four heats secured a first win of the season for Club Champ. Nick Huxley. Here are the race stats...
 
Heats (4x4-minutes, WYGR lanes) - 1. Nick H 146.51 (NSR Mosler MT900R), 2. Richy 146.10 (NSR Mosler MT900R/Slot.it Porsche 911 GT1), 3. Mike 144.81 (SlotingPlus Reynard 2KQ), 4.

DTM's- International track...
 
DTM's once again provided some fast and spectacular action - for example, the eventual winner's car vaulted the barriers in the heats! With the heats done and dusted Richy and Ian were tied on 93.91 laps each at the top of the standings - Richy deferring to Ian on lane choice for part-one of the split A-final. The Final itself proved to be just as incident packed, with top-qualifiers Richy and Ian both having costly "offs". This let Ashley and Roy through to take first and second places respectively. Despite the mayhem, four new DTM lap records were set - three by Richy and one by Ashley. Next week the action moves over to the Aldersley track - Open GT's, 4-minute heats, distance totals only.
 
Heats (4x3-minutes) - 1. Ian 93.91 laps (SCX Audi RS5), 2. Richy 93.91 (SCX Merc' CK), 3. Ashley 91.86 (Carrera BMW M4), 4. Roy 91.64 (SCX Audi RS5), 5. Mike 91.28 (SCX Audi RS5), 6. Chris 91.08 (SCX Merc CK), 7. Nick H 88.70 (Carrera Audi RS5), 8. Bill 88.24 (Carrera BMW M3), 9. Nick W 87.41, 10. John 85.88 (SCX Merc CK), 11. Kevin 84.80 (Carrera BMW M3), 12. Paul L 71.58.

GT3's - International track...
 
It had to happen, Richy is a Friday Champs winner again! Fast and consistent all evening with his NSR C7R, he avoided trouble in the A-final to take 25 championships points. There was disappointment for second placeman Roy and Top Qualifier Chris after they made contact with 2 laps to go in the Final. However, Roy had the satisfaction of setting the fastest lap of the evening - 7.691s on Red lane in the Final. Here are the race stats...
 
Heats (4x3-minutes) - 1. Chris 93.68 laps (NSR CR7), 2, Roy 93.58 (NSR ASV), 3. Richy 93.24 (NSR C7R ), 4. Nick H 92.03 (NSR C6R), 5. Ian 90.07 (NSR C6R), 6. Mike 88.69 (NSR C6R), 7.

Pre '74 Classics - International track...
 
First time out with resistor controllers and the racing was very close - only 6 tenths of a lap covered the top 4 in the A-final.  As was expected the lap times were up - on average 3 tenths slower compared to our electronic TruSpeed controllers. The top three drivers all ran Slot.it Matra-Simca's - Chris's with a 20k Scaleauto S can motor and 11:31 SW gearing. Ian's Thunderslot Lola T70 placed 4th overall. The feedback on the "retro" controllers was mixed; one or two members hadn't yet bought a controller, others had teething problems with set-ups e.g. stiff triggers and brake failures (Ashley!). What we learnt was that 25 ohms seems to be about the right resistance, and that with a bit of tinkering with spring tension and wiper arm pressure (easy to do), these controllers can be made to work smoothly and reliably.
 
Why the change to resister controllers? Simply to have one Club Championships Class that's more affordable for new-comers. Slot.it, NSR and Thunderslot all produce suitable models for our 'Classics' class which are raced more-or-less "box" standard - and a suitable resistor controller can be purchased for around £30 (compared to £200-plus for the latest electronic controllers). Hopefully, this cost-saving move will help us to encourage more people to try our sport. Let's see. Here are last Friday's results.
 
Heats (4x3-minutes) - 1. Chris 90.25 laps, 2. Ashley* 88.98, 3. Ian 88.11, 4. Nick H 87.81, 5. Bill 85.18, 6. Richy 85.14. 7. Nick W 82.53, Kevin 80.51, 9. John 80.12, 10. Malcolm 73.73. *Ashley used a TruSpeed PWM in the heats
 
Finals (3-minutes) - C-final Winner: Kevin 20.81 laps, B-final Winner: Richy 21 laps. A-final Results (2x2-minutes) - 1. Chris 29.89 laps, 2. Nick H 29.87 laps, 3. Richy 29.49 laps, 4, Ian 29.28 laps.
 
Fastest Laps (New Records) - White: Chris (Slot.it Matra-Simca) 8.082s, Yellow: Nick H (Slot.it Matra-Simca) 7.945s, Red: Chris 8.062s, Blue: Chris 8.142s.
  

 A NIGHT AT THE RACES - News
rt_vs_41c_banner.jpg 
 
Tuesday 7th February - WSCC hosted an evening of Scalextric racing on our International track for members of the Wolverhampton 41 Club and Tettenhall Round Table. The visiting teams - which  included former England footballer, Wolverhampton's own John Richards - were racing to win a Challenge Trophy. After all 23 visitors had driven their way through practice, heats and step-up finals, the top 4 drivers (2 from each team) went head-to-head for the trophy. The winning team by 6 points to 4, was Tettenhall Round Table. The top three drivers also received awards (pictured, left to right) 1st Place James Aston (Round Table), 2nd Andy M (41 Club) and Richard B (Round Table). The racing was organized by Malcolm Scotto with assistance from his Grandson Lewis and Chris Aston.

The 2017 Champs season opened with a win for Lewis with his National GT3 Series spec' NSR Aston ASV. Friday's race-pace was hot; Lewis and Roy topped the time sheets with 7.4 second laps - with the next 5 drivers all running 7.5's. Racing incidents cost several of the front runners' time - the difference in the end being relatively clean runs for Lewis and Chris in the heats and in both legs of the A-final, which earned them 1st and 2nd places overall. Here are the race stats...
 
Heats (4x3-minutes) - 1. Lewis 96.48 laps, 2. Roy 95.50, 3. Chris 95.25, 4. Nick H 94.72, 5. Ian 94.69, 6. Nick W 93.47, 7. Richy 93.07, 8. Bill 93.04, 9. John 91.85, 10. Mike 90.40, 11. Malcolm 79.87, 12. Andrew 77.78.

Roy has proposed that next Winter's YTC Series will be for Scalextric Retro BTCC cars  (looks like Bill's prize Seirra RS500 will come in useful - just needs a PCR chassis).

The Yule Tide Cup awards presentations and Raffle draw will take place this Friday before racing. Many thanks to Roy for sponsoring the series, and to everyone who took part for supporting the event.

DTM Open 2016 - Results
dtm_banner_1.jpgSunday October 16th, Wolverhampton SCC International track...
 
The first edition of the Wolves DTM Open was attended by 25 racers. A new event for 2016, the race format brought together "box" standard and "modified" 1/32nd scale SCX and Carrera DTM slot cars (as raced full-size in 2013 to 2016 seasons). These impressive model cars can be bought for around £30 and, with a few minor set-up tweaks, are ready to race in the 'Standard' DTM class on our 100 foot permanent 4-lane 'International' circuit.
 
The meeting began with individual Qualifying runs (3 laps, fastest lap time to count). Drivers were then graded into heats (4x3-minutes, total distances to count. Modified (Class 1) cars and Standard (Class 2) cars ran concurrently in the heats, Based on the results of the heats a series of "step-up" finals decided the finishing order (Class 1 and Class 2 finals ran separately). Most of the drivers raced in both classes, and comparing the average lap times in each, Class 1 (modified) cars were 1.5 seconds per lap faster than Class 2 (standard) cars.
 
Class 1 Results: 1. Ashley Evans (Carrera BMW M4 DTM, SlotingPlus 3-D chassis), 2. Roy Pritchards (SCX Audi RS5 DTM, SlotingPlus 3-D chassis), 3. Ian James (SCX Audi RS5 DTM, SlotingPlus 3-D chassis). Best Visiting Driver: 4th place overall, James Noake (SCX Mercedes CK DTM, SlotingPlus chassis). Fastest lap: Roy Pritchards 7.799s in Qualifying. 21 competitors.
 
Class 2 Results: 1. Gary Skipp (Carrera BMW M3 DTM), 2. Matt Tucker (Carrera Audi RS5 DTM), 3. Adam Le Maistre (Carrera RS5 DTM). Best Visiting Driver: 1st place overall, Gary Skipp. Fastest lap: Gary Skipp 9.032s. in Qualifying.  15 competitors.

Many thanks on behalf of the Wolverhampton club to everyone for taking part and making the event a success.
