Northern Off Road Arena (NORA) is the 1/10th off road section of DDRCC. We built the current venue in 2010/2011with the original intention of using astro turf as a racing surface but due to not being able to source the material as planned we opted for grass to start with.
DIRECTIONS to the track can be found by scrolling down, just above the weather forecast on right side of page.

To see how we are progressing with the track building click here, this shows the progress each time we are at the track.
The track will be available for 1/10th scale electric and nitro buggies and trucks. We race mostly over the summer with dates on the club calander. We race 2 wheel drive and 4 wheel drive vehicles. Every is welcome to race at the track, non members pay an extra fee so it's best to join the club if you intend to race regular. We also offer indoor pits trackside for those that are interested, details and availability can be obtained trackside. We are also able to make use of the Community Moto X facilites when they are on racing, this includes a canteen as well as Gents & Ladies toilets.
When you arrive at the track we have a large car park with hard standing. This will allow you to unload all your gear and get setup track with having to covered in mud.
Pitting is available all around the track, just bring a tent for shelter. All areas for pitting are grassed.
Once everyone is setup, we need you to book in so we know who is racing what. Heats will be created depending on ability, your ability will be updated each week there are points for that class of car.
Controlling the cars is available from the rostrum overlooking the track. This is approx 2 meters high and long enough for a comfortable ten people.
There will usually be time before the heats start to practice. You may need to wait until the grass is cut, but this shouldn't take long. Once you have had a practice you then need to get organised for the heats.
After you have raced in your heat you then need to marshal the next heat. There will be various marshal points indicated around the track. Remember only drivers/marshals that are BRCA members are allowed within the track perimeter.
Once all the finals have been run, drivers are organised into finals depending on how well they have done that day, This then gives drivers one last chance to race against each other to claim their points for that round of the club championship.
