Preston, im about 30mins north of Jubilee, but i know a few guys who go down more often. Ive only been once, was a while ago for the reedy race warm up last year, was impressed with the track and facilities though, my first attempt at tarmac racing too.

I went to halifax to watch the reedy race, but ive not raced there, i usually race indoor carpet. My local club is ribble valley, which im not too keen on but just go as it gives the old thumbs some practice. Raced the ellesmere port winter classic and finished up 8th overall in stock. Ive been to a few other local clubs, might do carpet disasters this year, but ive been wanting to try tarmac racing.
Im buying an Xray T1 Evo just for a try out and because it was cheap, if i like it i might sell that car and get the new one. We will see.

how far are you away from leeds.

there is a great club here (that is if you have a spec motor)

www.gtcc.co.uk is the club.

if you have a spec motor then its great, quite a lot of competition. but mod just seems to be dying, there were 4 guys on saturday wanting to do it(race director lent them some spec motors )

its about the same size as jubilee but carpet.

we have got some fairly new carpet so pretty good grip.

i know the website isn't to great but the updater guy has something wrong with his PC or something.

if i am correct you can race without BRCA but just can't race for points...i will check on that for you.

i haven't got any pics of the track but i will ask around some other members i know to see if they have any.

Motor are not rated for a motor, but for amp draw. Based on assumptions from what an average 14-turn draws and in a variety of vehicles they put a "safe" rating. You can blow an ESC with a 19-turn if it's geared improperly. It's all about amp draw. I'm sure looking at the size of the track you probably never really lift or accelerate from a standstill often enough to create a "high" draw scenario.

You will more than likely be safe with the 12-turn. Just gear it accordingly.

12 turn might be save. It depends on timing, gearing, your car (drivetrain resistance) and your driving style. If you have a 12 turn on hand, put it in the car, drive couple of laps and check how hot the ESC is. If the car is in flames you obviously can not use 12 turn, if the ESC is just warm it is most likely safe to continue driving.
