oOple Off Road Open Series

Welcome to the oOple Off Road Open Series!

The series is primarily aimed at the club driver who wants to experience the “big race meeting” without the pressure of entering a National.
The idea of the Series is to have fun and enjoy racing with your mates! 
Following the Covid pandemic we are starting back with a compact series after two years of furlough.
The series will be run over three meetings, firstly Durham, then Mendip followed by the Invernational held at RHR GT.
The Invernational will be an invitational event, more on that soon however entries are not currently open for that meeting. Any driver attending both Durham and Mendip will get an automatic invitation to the Invernational and will skip the ballot, gaining an entry.
For Durham and Mendip we have decided to run a control tyre on the rear axle for 2WD and 4WD of the Schumacher Mezzo in either Yellow or Silver compound, the trucks can run any commercially available tyre however we would recommend the Schumacher brand. We have gone with one tyre manufacturer and one design to keep consistency as the BRCA National Series and most Regionals are running them thus most drivers will have then readily available.
The Invernational running on the GT carpet track will have a mandated tyre of Schumacher Honeycombs on both axles.
Wet weather tyres – TBA
Truck tyres – TBA
Mad Models and local model shops from each area will be in attendance at the meetings.
