  • Club Rules and Classes

    The Brant's Hatch 1/24 Club is an extention of the Sharon Miniature Auto Racing Track operated by the late Mr. Ted Howes of Sharon, Ontario, Canada. Ted's club dates back decades to it's creation at his place in Stouffville Ontario.

    Entry Fee :

    $15.00 per event (this covers 2 classes of racing and the evening meal, snacks & beverages)

    Race Night :

    Generally we race on the last Friday of each month ( unless the Friday falls on a long weekend )

    General Racing Rules :

    All cars must pass tech inspection before participating in an event. If a new member has a car that doesn't pass tech for any reason the tech inspector can issue a warning and the car can be raced at the event, all changes must be made to the car by the member to make it legal for the next event. If the problem is serious and could cause damage to the track the car will need to be fixed immediatly before entering the race.

    Tire preparation will be limited to the use of sandpaper, lighter fluid and castor oil only. These preparations can only be performed on the test track. The use of any other tire additives or tire "glue" will result in the disqualification of the member from the event.

    Back-up cars are not allowed, if your car breaks during a race you make make any nessesary repairs.

    A practice session is available before each event, Brant generally likes everyone to start showing up after 6:00.
