2018 Wrp Rules

Recommended Posts

2018 WRP Rules

The WRP was originally developed with a set of rules not to be an "open" class.

Ideally it followed the KISS principle and to have the field of cars as even as possible.

Compared to the SCX rally cars (now not readily available) the Scalextric cars need more

adapting. Hence a control tyre to replace the Scalextric ones and a more reliable guide.

Important: If the rules do not allow something, take it as it cannot be done!

 

Currently the Organisers are Teamredracer, Ontheflipside with Scuderia_Turini, Snurfen, Alexis in Greece and two regular track hosts

 

 

The 2018 Series WRP (World Rally Proxy) is a slotcar proxy event for 4 types of Scalextric Group B rally cars of sidewinder configuration.

 

The entered slot cars will be shipped out to a wide variety of rally inspired slot car tracks likely to be located worldwide, where they will compete against each other. Ideally Events will be scheduled every 2nd week/end (allowing for additional time for international shipping).

 

A detailed schedule will be published once finalised .

 

Race reports will be published in the thread associated with the rally proxy events of auslot.com.au

 

Entrant's cars shall comply with the following rules and the onus is on the entrant to ensure that their car complies with these rules before posting/shipping car.

Pack the car in a bubble wrap cocoon and send it in a small compact box or where appropriate a shipping sachet.

Always ask for, and keep the tracking number of the package being sent. The proxy organisers will not take on any economical responsibility for lost packages.

 

4. RALLY FORMAT

 

In short, rallying is a time trial sport where the cars race against the clock while completing defined stages (routes).

 

A rally event consists of several different stages, often on various surfaces (tarmac, dirt, gravel, ice, snow, etc..), and the car that completes all the stages in the least amount of time is the winner of the rally.

 

In this slot car series the track hosts will arrange the events in a similar style as in real rallying.

The hosts are free to decide how they want to present their rally event and organise it, as long as they follow these basic guidelines:

 

Each rally round is divided into two or three stages. Each stage is a single race (stint) within the event.

 

A minimum of two stages are to be run and the third stage is at the option of the track host.

 

The times from all stages are added up to make the event time which rank the cars to receive time points, with total time over the stages no less than 8min for fastest cars.

 

Ensure timing system delivers to 1/100 sec accuracy. E.g: Race Co-ordinator http://www.racecoordinator.net/

 

Each stage (stint) has a set amount of laps (distance).

 

All cars in each stage are driven by the same driver who is suitably experienced on the event track.

 

When possible each stage to be completed on the same day so that track and temperature conditions are similar for each car.

 

Sufficient track marshals available to ensure de-slotted cars are rectified (ideally) within 1 – 3 seconds

 

Round Points

 

Roundpoints_zps51b444dd.jpg

 

In addition to follow the format guidelines, the hosts must follow the service & repair rules (see below), record timing with 1/100 sec accuracy, cooperate with the official (2014 WRP) Scorekeeper, participate actively in the event threads on the forums, supply "car feedback" to the entrants, publish pictures/media from the event, and cooperate with the organisers to get the cars shipped to the next event in time (shipping costs are refunded through PayPal).

 

 

5. TECH INSPECTION

 

Before the first event all competing cars will go through a technical inspection to check if they are in compliance with the rules.

 

The technical inspector will decided if a car can be modified to pass the inspection, or disqualified and returned to the owner.

 

The entry fee for disqualified cars will not be refunded, but instead used to cover the return shipping cost.

 

We suggest cars are posted well before the deadline date to allow time for any modifications / replacements if required.

 

If a car passes inspection and for some reason is latter found to be non compliant, a penalty will be issued.

 

 

6. SERVICE & REPAIRS

 

A quick service inspection of the cars is done before each event start by the relevant track host.

 

Service = braid adjustment and cleaning, tyre cleaning, axle and gear lubing.

 

Repairs = everything else.

 

Service is allowed between rounds / stage

 

Repairs must be finished prior to the start of the next round / stage

 

Urgent repairs are allowed during a stage (while the stage timer is running).

 

Cars that require an unreasonable amount of repairs during stage time (running timer) will be disqualified and receive a DNF (Did Not Finish).

DNF cars are disqualified for the whole round and will not receive any event points.

 

The track host will have to judge when to call for DNF, but a pointer is to consider a DNF when the repair takes more than 2 x the average stage time, or the repair seems unlikely to make the car able to complete the rest of the stages in the event.

 

The entrant is responsible for arranging repairs and supplying the host with required parts in good time before the event start (minimum 3 days in advance).

 

If a car requires repairs to start a round, all effort on the part of the host should be made to ensure that the car gets to the starting line, any costs involved should be made to the owner of the car and compensation (if needed) should be made to host.

 

It is encouraged that the hosts try to maintain a service level before each round i.e. either a full service or a quick check and or repair / cleaning of any part needed, with that in mind there will be designated "Service Parks" in this year's event.

 

 

7. General car rules

 

Car requirements:

Only Scalextric Group B Rally cars on the eligible car list are permitted

 

No Pro parts, apart from braids, are to be used i.e. no alloy rims, no alloy, brass or allen key gears

Lead weights must be painted, the digital plate at the front of the chassis as well as the grill under the engine may be removed and a piece of lead put in it's place, It must be level with the bottom of the chassis, the rear magnet position may also be used for lead weight, but the lead must be covered with some sort of sealant, either a resin based substance, a two pack adhesive or something similar plus it must be painted.

 

Chassis must have sufficient ride height to avoid bottoming out on bumpy rally tracks.

 

The magnet holding compartments at the bottom of the chassis, may be removed and filled to keep the chassis flat and even and allow better clearance, motor remains in original position.

 

The car may be disqualified (DNS) if track host judges it to be a hazard to his track. DNS cars receive no stage points from the stage it has been disqualified from.

 

Entrant's name must be written on underside of chassis in paint, silver Sharpie, or engraved

Any braid may be used

 

 

Body & interior:

 

Body must be mounted with body screws and be easily removable. Tape or tacky clay (Blue Tack) may be used to keep loosened body screws in place

The fitting of brass, alloy or plastic sleeves to the hub boss for strength is allowed.

 

The rims are to remain standard, no "air rim" modification is allowed ie drilling or grooving of rims.

As the cars are rear wheel drive only, the tyres have been supplied in packs of two.

 

Tyre wall may be rounded off slightly (profiled).

 

Tyre may project beyond body work no more than 1 mm, as viewed from above, at maximum side travel of wheels, ie 1/2 mm each side

 

Clear finish may be applied to front tyre tread area ..... the other three tyre rules still apply.

It would be great to have you on board Mike. You still have about a month to get a car here. Postage is usually about 7 working days from your end.

 

Cheers Mel

Hello Grant,

When the cars were here in Scotland in 2017 I did a basic check with a flat washer on the track. It is 1.6mm thick and all the cars cleared that although a couple were marginal. I personally would like to see a figure specified but as you have seen there is no limit in the rules.
