Rules Of Engagement

Classes

EPR currently caters for two-wheel and four-wheel-drive 1:10 electric off-road buggies. Our winter series has also seen us cater for short course trucks and stadium trucks in a combined class when numbers are sufficient. Unfortunately, due to noise restrictions imposed we are unable to run nitro-powered cars.

How to become a member?

Membership of EPR runs annually from 1 January to 31 December, although we do reduce the fees for those joining part-way through the year.

After three meetings, we ask racers to join the BRCA for a number of reasons, primarily insurance whilst racing. EPR and BRCA membership forms can be downloaded below.

*Members and non-members need to request permission from either Steve or Matt before using the track in order for EPR to maintain our relationship with Club Langley.

Note: Non-BRCA members are ineligible to take part in the regional race series’ as these are sanctioned and insured by the BRCA. In order to promote regional racing, the BRCA offer temporary cover for three meetings.

Transponders

After spending a few year’s running Eden Park Overlander’s old AMB20 system, some serious hard work raising funds has allowed us to upgrade to AMBrc (a digital system that supports the use of personal transponders) along with BBK Timing software. If you have a PT, please can you e-mail us with your details so we can add them to the database on the club’s race control laptop.

 

Rules

We aren’t ones for being stuffy! After all this is a hobby and is supposed to be fun. The main things are to listen out for PA announcements, check your race order, frequencies, (unless you’re on 2.4GHz) listen out for your race, be on the line in good time and don’t forget to marshal. Even if you miss your race due to failure or are still repairing your car, you must marshal. No disappearing when its your turn or leaving early until all marshalling duties are finished. It is very important to respect the marshals even if they are slow to pick your car up after you have crashed. They may have to be aware of other cars or tread carefully when the track is damp. Remember, it’s your fault if you crash, no shouting at marshals and keep the language clean – have fun!

 

Track layout

We are able to run a host of different and layouts and run in a clockwise and anti-clockwise direction. The track surface is made up of Astroturf, tarmac and concrete with lap times around 23 or 24 seconds on the longest layout.

Below you can see a line drawing of the overall layout so you can see the options we have. If you have any suggestions for layouts at the meetings just let us know and we’ll try and accommodate. Also, if you are a newcomer or junior, do let us know if you are finding the tracks too difficult to learn or you’re not having fun. Again we’ll try and accommodate your views.
