I was really pleased to see a full pit lane with several teenagers - all were keen to tell me how good the club car is and just how much use it has had!
The club members run cars of 1/10th and 1/12th scale. The cars run really fast - I was told up to 40mph can be typical - and this is before you scale the speed up! If you are a newbie - you are better going for a robust 1/10th scale car - they cost less and allow you to race competitively without breaking the bank.
I had a really enjoyable evening - and would encourage anyone who fancies a go to turn up on a Thursday evening at the Community Centre for a go.
The British Model Racing Car Association were also present tonight along with TV cameras... and then they asked me to take part in a race... on camera! Guess what I came last.
