VIKING CUP CLASSES – Support Races

VSCC Racers Cup
CLASSES 

The spirit of these support classes:
is to allow any eligible car to race in a near to standard tune with original components to promote an even playing field.

Cars not eligible: Any slot car manufacturer listed in the ‘Super class’.

Below are the classes in the Viking Racers Cup class competition:

A Standard class car must NOT have:

  • any components specified as allowable in the Super class
  • motors with any magnetic down force effect
  • high performance motors
  • magnets
  • metal gears
  • metal wheel hubs
  • ball-race bearings
  • ballast weights
  • light-weight bodies
  • firmly glued on tyres to the wheel hub
  • wet tyres when brought to the grid to race
  • sponge tyres.
  • tyres or hubs protruding outside of the car body work as viewed from above. A 1mm allowance may be made for cars whose hubs, if protruding outside of the bodywork, can not physically be moved inward. Fitting wider hubs than standard is not excused. Every effort should be made by the car owner to ensure that the car is rebuilt so that the wheel hubs and tyres remain inside the bodywork.
  • removed body work or chassis parts.  However, broken wings (not missing wings), mirrors, aerials, etc are acceptable.  The complete absence of a wing that would normally be fitted is not desirable and the car owner should make every effort to fit a replacement wing. 
  • removed material from the bodywork or chassis. This refers to the removal of material from the main body or chassis.
  • the driver tub, or driver pan, removed. The tub/pan must be fitted if the car was designed and fitted with one. This component can be made of hard plastic or a Lexan material but not paper material.
  • generic ‘one piece fits all’ Lexan or similar light-weight material, driver pans/tubs.
  • interiors fitted from other make/marque of car. It is allowed to move across slot-car manufacturers if the transfer doesn’t require cutting-out or adding-in of material from the car body or driver pan.
It is permissible to use guide blades from other manufacturers.
