SScalextric Clubs in Scotland, UK

Hi all, im keen to start a club up in my local area (Glasgow) and wondered who else is out there?!

I cant seem to find any advice on funding a club on the official website or forums so wondered if anyone else has some tips? I will need to hire a local church hall or approach my kids primary school to use their hall and wondered if you can get official Scalextric backing / sponsership / endorsement as I would be helping local kids as well as helping to sell the companies products for them?!...any advice would be welcome Smile

i am too looking about for a club in glasgow if you find one let me know. I am a 50 year old who is dying to get back into it again lol

I have recently introduced my son to the world of Scalextric racing and it reminded me of the all fun I used to have when I was man & boy enjoying this hobby.

Later on I also ran the 'Fife Slot Racing & Collectors Club' early to mid 2000's.

It got me to thinking of whether there would be any interest in relaunching this club/or similar again for all the dads/lads/daughters who have any interest in the hobby but want to race other people as well as family members.

Feel free to post a reply here or by email to pacmax3@hotmail.co.uk

Hi all, I would be very interested in linking up to start a club but I think some are in existence already in Glasgow. I am in G5

Hi MR - welcome to the forum.

 

There’s a map of slot car clubs in the UK here: http://www.slotcarmap.co.uk/Slot_Car_Map.html

 

If there’s no club near you and you can find another couple of people who want to set one up - go for it! Although you’ll almost certainly need to buy the kit to set up a club, there might be grants available from local funding bodies to help run a new community group. Our club - Worthing HO Racing - got our first year’s running costs (hall hire, public liability insurance & publicity) paid for by Worthing Community Chest (http://www.worthingcommunitychest.org/). If you have something similar in your local area, it’s worth a go. This is a brief account of what a grant did for us: http://www.worthingcommunitychest.org/all-project-list/who-racing/

 

This is a bit more about the club: http://www.whoracing.org.uk/about.html

Hi 'Mr Woodcote'

Many thanks for your feedback. I will investigate these options; our local Co-Op has a hall available for community use.

Anybody in the G5 area please contact me via this site. 

Let us get do this!
