The West Australian Slot Car Racing Group was originally formed in 2010 to provide a venue for people who like to race 1/32nd scale hard body style slot cars in a friendly competitive environment. The current classes include;
- Ninco GT Angle Winders sponsored by “WASCRG“
- Aussie V8 Touring Cars sponsored by ” Sponsor Pending“
- Revell Historic Nascars sponsored by ” Sponsor Pending“
- SCX Modern Nascars sponsored by “A J Cochrane and Sons “
- NSR Historic Lemans sponsored by “WASCRG”
- Slot it Lemans sponsored by ” Miami Menswear “
- NSR GT Lemans sponsored by ” Sponsor Pending“
- Racer Sideways Group 5 sponsored by ” Sponsor Pending”
- Pioneer Classic Muscle Cars sponsored by “WASCRG“
Future classes are likely to be added to the existing group, in order to present new challenges to racers and to promote continuing high levels of interest in the club racing calendar.
One of the main operating principals of the WASCRG is to promote a level playing field where no single individual is able operate with an unfair car advantage. The club strives to make sure that all race participants have competitive cars and that race wins are achieved on driving talent alone, rather than by having an unfair car performance advantage.
In line with this philosophy new members are assisted with various car tuning methods that more experienced drivers have learned from experience. Coaching and encouragement for new drivers is undertaken to enable them to get up to speed more quickly with the ultimate aim of creating a really competitive field.
The website address is www.waslotcarracinggroup.com and it is in the form of Word Press Blog, which will enable members and interested parties to post relevant comments about slot car racing and slot car matters in general.
Race meetings are currently held on every second Saturday of the month at Yangebup with cars being raced on a four lane routed analogue race track. Two classes are held on each race meeting and there are five classes being run in the first season. Season one includes; Ninco GT Angle winders, NSR Historic Lemans, Slot it Lemans, Pioneer Muscle cars and SCX Pro NASCARS. Season 2 includes Aussie V8 Supercars, Historic NASCARS, NSR GTs and Racer Sideways Group 5 Cars. There will be five racing rounds held for each class. You can view the full yearly racing calendar on another website page. The actual race formats are explained in full in another section of the website. There is no membership fee but a charge of $15 is applicable to all person who participate on a race night.
END OF SEASON TROPHY NIGHTS:
The club holds a trophy night at the end of each racing season, one in July and the other in December. The function is usually held at the local Chinese restaurant or at the club where a large selection of food and alcohol can be had by all. On the night the various trophies are presented to the first, second and third place getters in each of the classes raced during that season. Members must have attended at least 4 race meetings in order to be eligible to participate. However if any other club member who hasn’t been to the required 4 race meetings wants to attend the function, then a AU$25.00 attendance fee will apply.
RAFFLE PRIZE ELIGABILTY:
Slot car raffle prizes are given to winners at each race meeting for “Members”. If a member wins one week he is ineligible for the following week . New “Members” must attend at least 4 race meetings to eligible to win a prize in the raffle.
The website has separate race results pages for each class that is raced with in a calendar season and these will be updated fortnightly with the night’s race results. Other race formats and new classes are likely to be added from time to time, in order to maintain interest levels and continue to provide the best club racing currently available in Western Australia.
