BTCC

The British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) was new to the club for 2017, open to any of Scalextric’s new range of contemporary cars from the British Touring Car Championship.

In 2017 it was a two round, non-championship series to enable us to try out software settings ahead of the class being promoted to a full-championship in the 2018 season.

 

Format:

RCS64 Software used, with tyre, fuel and weather simulation. Each entrant competes in five races, which will be contested on either hard or soft tyres. Cars shod with hard tyres are slower at start of the race but last much longer. Cars with soft tyres are faster at the start of the race, but they will degrade quickly if used aggressively.

Race grid/start positions for each race will be decided by a two minute qualifying session. Those qualifying in first or second place will contest the race on soft tyres, while the rest of the grid run on the hard tyre compound.

 

For wet races all cars will change to full wets before race commences. In mixed-weather races where drivers start on intermediate or wet weather tyres, if they then change to slicks they must use their designated hard/soft tyre.

Remember: pit stops are not compulsory if drivers think they can continue on their existing tyres.

50 lap races with points awarded for position:

1st – 20
2nd – 17
3rd – 15
4th – 13
5th – 11

One point is also awarded for the fastest lap in each race.
