Model Boats|November 2019
Its Friday the 28 June and competitors are starting to arrive at the Bridlington MBC for the 2019 MPBA Fast Electric championship. This is a two-day event, (Saturday and Sunday) with the Friday being for battery checking and as a practice and testing day.
The MPBA Fast Electric Section, (www. mpba-fes.org.uk) apart from its connection to fast electric clubs in the UK, hosts two main events a year. The first is the fast-electric championship, hence this article and the second is the UK SAWS. This is a speed records event and a piece explaining this and detailing the 2019 event will be featured soon. As I haven’t got all that much space here, I won’t be able to go into the full details of all the classes that are run, battery rules etc. I suggest that if you are interested to look at the section website where all is explained. Two other web sites which are worth a look at are: The Northern Amp Draggers site, (www. ampdraggers.co.uk) and the Electra site (www.electrafying.com).
Having said I haven’t got the space for too much detail; I can give you a broad idea what it’s all about. First, I should say that the MPBA is affiliated to the equivalent Europe wide organisation NAVIGA and so the rules of the UK championships largely follow the NAVIGA ones with one or two modifications. Once again check out the MPBA website for complete details of rules and regulations.
