Slot Car Racing is a sport for everyone! It's environmentally-friendly, inexpensive and safe.
It's what we call a passive sport as opposed to an active one like football or tennis. People who are unable to take part in active sports through illness, injury, age or disability can race alongside others in a hugely competitive sport with many facets.
We feel it's important to get people off the computer games and into a social environment where they can learn real skills, such as choosing tyre compounds and changing gear ratios - painting car bodies and adding decals - electrical skills with motors and controllers - even computer programming with the race control system. Not forgetting that all important 'life skill' of winning and losing.
The club has a fleet of club cars and controllers for beginners to 'have a go' before moving on to buying and racing your own car and your first night is completely free!
We greatly appreciate the help, support and service from the following organisations:
Shepton Mallet Leisure Centre is the home to our club and has been extremely supportive.
