Electric Racing

Speed models or "plestics" as called by some others.
This section was started by Lionell (chainsaw) as there were a lack of competition in the club. The racing is split into 2 classes. Races are normally ten laps. 1st place = 5 points, 2nd place = 4 points, 3rd = 3 points. All boats that finish the race gets 1 point.

2) Open class
