WHO/DIGITAL Scalextric Sport Digital Racing in Worthing

Bring-your-own racing

If our club car racing is the bread-and-butter of WHO/digital, then our bring-your-own formats are the icing on the cake. These are the races where you buy, prepare and drive your own cars - sometimes paired with a teammate, sometimes on your own. These are the current bring-your-own classes:


Trans-Am - Wednesday evening pairs race

BTCC - Three races each Digital Saturday

DiSCA GT4 Trophy - Endurance race on Digital Saturdays

Goodwood Revival - varied formats on Digital Saturdays

Group C - June Digital Saturday evening 2018


Our ‘bring-your-own’ classes concentrate on non-mag racing with mostly the recent Digital Plug Ready (DPR) Scalextric and Pioneer models. The Goodwood Revival class also includes some other makes and the annual Group C race is for Slot.it cars.


The 2018 WHO/digital guide explains all the formats and build guidelines in detail. You can download a pdf of the guide from this page or the 2018 season page.


Here are some broad guidelines common to all the classes:


Digital Chip: Unmodified Scalextric C8515 EasyFit Digital Plug or the C7005 or C7006 Retro-Fit Digital Chips for non-DPR cars.


Magnets: Any traction magnets must be removed.


Ballast: Ballast (eg lead sheet) may be added, but must be fixed securely inside the chassis.


Chassis & body: Removal of material only permitted to allow body-roll or for a hole to be drilled to fit LED for digital chip.


Components: Only standard parts original to the car may be used.


Braids: Robust braids (ie not ultra-thin racing braid) should be used and must be cut shorter that the end of the guide.


Tyres: Any rubber or urethane tyres can be used. They can be trued and glued to the wheels. We particularly like the Paul Gage range of tyres.


Any questions - please ask!

WHO racers can get a discount on online orders of full-price cars, parts and accessories at Pendle Slot Racing - which is cool, because they’re one of the best and most helpful UK slot car retailers!


Just ask for details at a WHO event.
