About the DMCC Pink Tie Slot Car Challenge

It doesn’t matter if you haven’t raced a slot car since Christmas Day in 1986 when you got your first Scalextric set, this event is open to all. Best of all Cars will be provided as part of your entry fee!

It will be team endurance racing, held at The Naul slot car track.

The event will take place on Monday 2nd January.

Format for the day

In the morning, there will be a 6 team endurance race on the DIGITAL track. Six equally matched cars will be provided. Tyres will be included. The race will last 3 hours.

In the afternoon, there will be a 4 team endurance race on the ANALOG track. Again, cars and tyres provided. This will also be 3 hours.

Teams

Teams must be a minimum of 3 people, though you can have more. You may enter a full team, or let us know if you have no friends, and we will find a team for you.

The entry fee per team will be €90 (includes car, tyres etc.)

Entry

Because of the nature of this event, it is PRE-ENTRY ONLY. So email us at dublinmodelcarclub@gmail.com and let us know if you would like to enter.

When entering, please specify whether you/your team would like to race in the Digital or Analog race. This will be on a first come first served basis, so get your entries in asap.

If you already have a full team, we will request the entry fee in advance. If you don’t have a full team, we will request the entry fee once we match you up with more team members.

If we feel any team is too strong (i.e. a bunch of expert Slot Car racers) we may split you up. After all, this is meant to be a fun event.

During the racing, one member of your team must marshal while one drives. The rest of the team can make tea/go to shop for bickies.

Closing Date for entries is December 18th
