FYLDE OPEN  29/30 January 2022

Round 1 of the 1/32nd Scale British Open Championship


The Fylde Club are very pleased to be hosting the 1st BOC for 2 years & warmly invite you to our open meeting. We are keen to see the 1/32nd series off to a good start and hope racers of all levels will come & support the meeting. With that in mind the season will see the re-launch trial of a sub class championship for racers using Intro 32 cars with appropriate class bodies for Saloon & Sports and F2 cars in Grand Prix which will be open to any racers who have never been Premier Grade.

The Track

Our circuit is 109 feet long with very wide lane spacing and no tricky twists & turns to learn so you can just concentrate on some great racing on this ever popular circuit.

The braid recess is 0.7mm with a very consistent power output.

Reads Avenue, Palatine Road & Hornby Road contain hundreds all within a mile from the club & just off the opposite side of Whitegate Drive from the club.

The Premier Inn Blackpool East about 7 mins. drive away has been popular in the past with the connected restaurant offering very good dining for an evening meal as well as breakfast.

Catering

As usual we will have a selection of hot & cold food & drinks available throughout both days.

Conduct

We hope and expect not to issue warnings but will apply BSCRA conduct rules for unsporting behaviour & foul language.

Covid Precautions

In keeping with BSCRA  policy it is a requirement that you must have been double vaccinated to attend. Also if you have not had a booster jab could you please have one before attending in all our interests.

Unless exempt all attending will be required to wear a face mask in the clubroom except at their own pit space & if needed for visibility on the driver’s rostrum.

Perhaps of greatest importance, please take a lateral flow test as near as possible before leaving home ahead of attending the meeting.
