The HO Grand Prix
The HOGP is a celebration of HO racing.
Annually (almost!) the HOGP is held at a special location which is a little different to the norm.
Past events have been held at Pinewood Raceway, The UK Slot Festival and the HONK 'Mega Track'.
The 2014 event coincided with EAHORCs 100th race event.
Below is the format that was used for the 2014 event plus Results and Pictures from Past HOGP's.
Results from the 2014 Event can be found on the Results Page.
Closed wheel classes as per normal EAHORC Running - Closed Wheel, LMP1 and Nascar.
Best 3 lanes count (5 if 6 lanes are used). Ascending finals determine result.
4 teams (up to 6 teams if 6 lanes are run) race for the HOGP 100 Cup - SCHORC, FLBT, HONK, WHO (plus others if 6 lanes are run).
The teams will race for, and complete 25 laps on each lane.
1st to 25 laps will score 25 points.
2nd to 25 laps will score 20 points.
3rd to 25 laps will score 15 points.
4th to 25 laps will score 10 points.
5th to 25 laps will score 5 points. (if 6 lanes available)
6th to 25 laps will score 3 points. (if 6 lanes available)
After all teams have raced on all lanes, the total points score will be calculated and the team with the most points will be the winner.
Teams must be made up of at 4 drivers (5 drivers if 5 teams compete, 6 if 6 teams compete), and each driver must complete 25 laps on a single lane.
Where a team cannot enter enough drivers, they may enlist non-club drivers. This driver must not be a member of any other team, and race control must be informed.
Cars will be AFX Racemasters MG 1.7 with LMP bodies. These will be supplied by EAHORC and will be placed on dedicated lanes.
The PM class will be Segmented Open Wheel. Open to all EAHORC Open Wheel classes. Mega G, Tyco and Tomy Turbo + others as in EAHORC Rules.
Races will be 5 minutes long. All lanes count and the total lap count of all lanes will determine the result.
Drivers will be seeded to race against their peers. Seedings will be calculated from the outcome of the EAHORC Cup 2013/14, EAHORC A Final Wins, Fastest Laps and Pole Positions (seedings spreadsheet is available on request). Anyone coming to race for the first time will be given 10 points in the seedings list.
There will be no PRO Mod due to the Team Race.
