We are a small bunch of slot car enthusiasts who live around Huntingdonshire,
and meet up every month to chat and drive slot cars around a circuit we set up
in the Offord Church Hall. By small we mean up to twelve children from five
years and older, and six or seven dads (and it is mostly dads!) picking up
crashed cars when the children are driving, with some adults racing later on
in the evening.
DetailsClub meeting dates and times are detailed here. Each meeting (i.e Thursday, Friday or both) costs £2.50 per 'driver'. Fizzy drinks and various types of snack are available to keep young drivers hyperactive.
The club was originally set up and run by Tony Stacey, but when he retired mid-2002, some of the 'regular' grownups stepped into the breach:
And to give you an idea of what the circuit looks like; here is a photo from a PTA event in Godmanchester Community School circa 2005; I will try and replace it with a more up-to-date photo in the the Church Hall, soon.
