No more green carpet at the "1/32 24 uurs race van Brussel" !

staat jou team hier tussen in 2013?!

Oproep van Kevin Vonk :

Beste Slotracers,

Dit jaar wordt de 1/32 24 uurs race van Brussel weer georganiseerd door de Brussels Scalex Club.
De naam zegt het al: de race wordt gereden op drie 8-spoors Scalextric banen die dit jaar allemaal langer dan 50 meter zijn!
De race is onderdeel van het Slot-it European Championship, net zoals de 24 uurs races van Verbano (Italië) en de race waar meerdere Nederlandse teams gereden hebben Igualada (Spanje).
Dit jaar zal de derde keer zijn dat ikzelf meedoe. De eerste keer met Keistad Slotracing Team, en het laatste jaar met Dutch Touch Slotracing. Ook dit jaar zal DTS meedoen na een geweldige zevende plaats vorig jaar.
De organisator van de race heeft mij gevraagd om nog meer Nederlandse teams naar Brussel te brengen dit jaar, omdat er vanuit het Slot-it EC minder teams naar Brussel komen.

Bijgevoegd de brief van Francois (organisator) en de inschrijvingsprocedure.
Brussels, 21th July 2013
Dear all,
On behalf of the Brussels Scalex Club and all his team, I’m glad to announce to you the opening of the

registrations for the 24th edition of the ‘Scalextric’ international 24 hours of Brussels.

It will take place on Friday 15, Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 November 2013 in the Centre

Communautaire de Joli-Bois in Woluwé-Saint-Pierre (Brussels).

We will race again on our Scalextric Sport 24 lanes track. The big novelty this year : the green carpet
is over, the circuits will be made higher ! At this occasion, the layout of the circuit will be renewed and the length of the tracks will for the first time exceed the 50 meters.

The cars will be the Group C from and more precisely the Jaguar XJR6/9, the Porsche

956KH, the Porsche 962C and the Toyota 88C.

Once more this year we organise the third and last race of the European Championship of Group C Endurance. About ten, mainly Italian and Spanish, teams will compete on our tracks and the best European drivers of this sport will show again all her talents.

Other excellent Belgian, Dutch and French teams have already declared her intentions to participate and we want to offer to all these out of the European championship teams which will participate

in the INTER category a real challenge with a separate INTER ranking, which will be commented

during the race and clearly identified on the displays.
Like the three first teams at the overall ranking, the three first INTER teams will be rewarded with a trophy.
We wish especially to have a larger representation of teams of the North of Europe to respond to our friends of the South Europe and to meet again with pleasure former competitors such as from England,
Denmark or Germany.

Why not you then ?

For those who do not know our 24 hours yet, you will discover the particular atmosphere of the Brussels 24 hours : the hall of Joli Bois with his mezzanine, his theatre, his restaurant and his bar, the public and the animations, the pop&rock music and the race comments. For your rest during the night of the race, we keep a quiet place in the theatre where you can install your campbeds or air beds.
Once more, we’ll live a high-level competition with some of the best european teams of 1/32 endurance races.

The technical rules are available on

The race rules are attached to this mail.

Information concerning the race will be published on the site of the BSC: .

As usual the 24 hours will be preceded by the OPEN race which had considerable success these last years. However, to facilitate the way back of the foreign teams on Sunday evening, the 24 hours race will start and finish on 15:00. For this reason, there will be no more qualification session.
