Rally Racing on a Budget Race Series Round 1 & 2

Rally Racing on a Budget Race Series Round 1 & 2

Rally racing on a budget is all about having a competitive car to race but keeping the cost down and maintaining the fun factor!  With all the cars being the same, the Losi 1/14th brushless Rally Car.  It's all down to the the ability of the driver and not how much money you have to spend on your race set-up. The only upgrades permitted are a 2200mha Black Magic Lipo (£19.99) and you can fit your own radio system.

Ther race series is over six meetings with your top 4 scores going towards your final result.  Each meeting will consist of four qualifying rounds and a final.  Each of the qualifying rounds and the final will be eight laps with one of your laps being the "Joker" lap.  The Joker lap is a little shorter than the normal lap and when you decided to run the Joker lap you have to shout "Joker" to tell race control you are doing your Joker lap.  This lap will also be picked up on the timing software so no cheating! ;)

The winner of the series will be crowned the #RCMSD RALLY RACE WINNER and also receive £100 to spend in the shop.
