As well as being a day for raising money for a very good cause, we will be demonstrating our hobby in front of a lot of car enthusiasts, hopefully attracting some new blood into the sport.

Entry will also give you access to the car show (worth £6), and you will need to bring your BRCA card to show to organisers that you're a racer.
We will be running Touring Cars, preferably 13.5 Blinky please, GT12 to National rules and LMP12 to mod and 13.5 Blinky rules. The Novice class is for kids (mostly) who aren't regular racers.
How Many Heats and Finals?
This year we'll be running the Reedy Race Format, with as many rounds as we can fit in during the day. That means all races are effectively finals.
Race fees will be £11 for members, £12 for non-members and £6 for juniors. All these race fees will go Bloodwise (the new name for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research Fund), NRCC and Newbury college make nothing from this.
Entry will also give you access to the classic car show.
Stuff you need to know
Doors open 10am, practice will run till 10:30. Racing will start around 10:40 and finish around 16:30. You REALLY SHOULD BOOK IN HERE if you want to race, if you turn up on the day we will try to find space for you, but can't guarantee it. You'll need to state your Name, PT number and the class you wish to enter.
Entries will be limited due to lack of space, and we will close entries when I get 6 heats of 8 cars.
You all know how to behave at a race meeting. This one is slightly different as there will be members of the public watching and looking around, many of whom will be kids. All racers will be ambassadors for RC car racing, please by entering you are agreeing to be willing to answer questions and talk to the general public.
