We are a small bunch of slot car enthusiasts who live around Huntingdonshire,
and meet up every month to chat and drive slot cars around a circuit we set up
in the Offord Church Hall. By small we mean up to twelve children from five
years and older, and six or seven dads (and it is mostly dads!) picking up
crashed cars when the children are driving, with some adults racing later on
in the evening.
At present we don't have any formal racing, but we are considering setting up
some races if there is enough interest. The most important thing is that we
enjoy ourselves, so nothing too serious is planned!
Club meeting dates and times are detailed here.
Each meeting (i.e Thursday, Friday or both) costs £2.50 per 'driver'. Fizzy drinks and
various types of snack are available to keep young drivers
The club was originally set up and run by Tony Stacey, but when he retired
mid-2002, some of the 'regular' grownups stepped into the breach:
- Steve Langford
- Steve is the mainstay of the club - he books the church hall and fills his
car with banana-boxes of Ninco track for us to set up and drive on! He also
brings a toolkit and helps people repair broken-down cars.
- Tim Bissell
- I'm the webmaster of the club, and help take dow the track if I manage to escape from work on time!
- Simon Moss
- Another club stalwart who helps set up when he can. A smooth and fast driver like his legendary namesake. Simon came second in the 2002 Scalextric/Ford Focus rally challenge, allegedly because he couldn't be bothered to apply for the passport necessary for the first prize...
