With support from our sponsors the prize pot for the championship will once again be substantial with slotcars, trophies and a few special prizes during the year (details to follow).
You don’t have to compete at every event to take part so if you only fancy trying your hand at your local event that’s fine just sign up to the event of your choice and come along – we can’t guarantee you will not be bitten by the SRGB bug, but if you just fancy a fun day out playing with toy cars we look forward to seeing you. We try to make the championship as fun as possible you can take it as seriously (or not) as you wish! There is a class for any type of slot rally car so as long as the magnet has been removed you can bring what you have, plenty of regulars are on hand to help, advise and encourage.
There are rules and they can look a little daunting and complicated at first, but most are common sense or designed to offer a level playing field to everyone of all skills, ability and budget. A separate topic will be opened to discuss the rules and regs so if you have questions just ask.
