What is the NINCO World Cup Super GT Event?

The NINCO WORLD CUP SUPER GT is an international championship organized by NINCO, one of the largest worldwide slot hobbyist manufacturers. Teams from all over the world race with the most popular 1/32 NINCO slot cars in order to select the 16 best drivers who will compete at the grand final in Verona, Italy, December 2-3 to win the championship.

We look forward to having racers coming to JD Model Raceway who feel they can race at a world level with other 1/32 slot racers.

The race will be an endurance race. The cars to be raced can only be the NINCO Honda NSX's, Toyota Supra's, Nissan 350Z's, or Renault Megane Trophy cars with NC-6 motor, NINCO Shore A25 rear tires and no magnet! Racers can bring their own cars, or purchase cars and accessories at the track. Only NINCO components (standard or ProRace) can be used. Cars will be inspected and motors and tires will be issued by draw at trackside. Considering the level of competition and reason for the race, a nominal entry fee will be charged. The racing and car rules are strict and will be adhered to.

MRC must be notified of the planned date. Pictures and race results must be forwarded to MRC within the week following the race.
