Club Championship Rules

The Club Championship is run throughout the year for all members of Cotswold Model Car Club. The classes are:

Electric Ready-to-Run Cars
17.5T ‘Blinky’ Touring Cars
13.5T ‘Blinky’ Touring Cars
13.5T ‘Boosted’ Touring Cars
Open Modified Touring Cars
1:10 I.C. (200mm Touring Cars & 220mm GT)
Other classes of 1:10 scale vehicles, 1:8 scale vehicles and Bikes may be catered for if there are a minimum of 5 racers in that class, i.e. there are enough drivers to marshall the next heat, and if the timing of the day allows for an extra heat. If you wish to race another class to what is advertised, please contact the committee to give a ‘heads up’ to the organisers. 

Unfortunately we do not run Large Scale classes (1:5 scale) at our club meetings.

General Rules

1. Only Cotswold Model Car Club members qualify for the Club Championship.
2. Each club meeting will feature qualifying rounds, 1x 10 minute final for IC classes and 2x 5 minute finals for Electric classes. Drivers can score a maximum of 100 points in each final depending on finishing position (i.e. 1st position scores 100 points, 2nd scores 99 and so on)
3. Scoring rounds are calculated on the ‘Half + 1’ principle. For 2017 there are 13 club meetings, so 7 club meetings will count towards the driver’s score.
4. Drivers must race at least 7 club meetings in order to qualify for the Club Championship.
