This event due to held on Sunday 5th April has been postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Hopefully it will happen at a later date this year – watch this space!
This is an “amphibious race” to make use of the large tarmac ramp which runs down into the water at the Apex Lake and to encourage good old fashioned British ingenuity, design and creative skills…and to have fun!
Format & rules
The race is open to any RC electric powered model of any design, type or size, but it must be “amphibious” as half the race course is on the water (the wet bit) and half up along a ramp (the dry bit). At the Apex we have a very large wide tarmac ramp which runs down into the water. There may be a semi-final and final race if there are enough entries.

2018 event (2019 cancelled due to algae outbreak)
The 2018 was held in superb weather in mid October having been postponed due to an algae outbreak during the previous month. We only had 3 taking part this time, but the race was still good fun around a course set out half up the ramp and half into the lake! Chris Locke had a modified Mono 1 FE race boat with retractable wheels, powered by a single ducted fan. He had a slight problem getting it to turn on the ramp but it went really well in the water and he won the race a clear lap ahead of the Russ Chilcott and Dave Giddings models.
Congratulations to Chris for winning this years event, Russ finished in 2nd place with Dave in 3rd.
A big thank you to Robert Arlett for being the Lap Counter/OOD for the event.
