|For the second year running Riverside Raceway was asked to provide an entertainment track for the National Sports and Performance Car Show at Telewest Arena, Newcastle upon Tyne. This year the track was a Scalextric RALLYSPRINT stage. Fully landscaped and featuring a single lane run of approximately 150 long, this great track breaks down into 6 sections to make it easily transportable. Timing is via a TrikTrax timer and times not only the full run time but 4 intermediate stages. Lap time using an SCX Seat Cordoba? the record stands at 19.7 seconds. The track is now resident at Riverside and is used on regular basis by racers of all ages. The Rallysprint track will also be seen out and about during the summer months at various venues and may be hired for promotional events. The track and timing trips were designed by Andy Brown-Searle and built/landscaped by Mark Wattam of Max tracks, the builder of our first 6 lane portable track which will now live in Reading at the Pinewood club.|
