We support all forms of retro slot car racing, so whether events are planned under the standards we publish here, or according to other rules, we are happy to include them in our events Calendar.


CSCRA promotes and encourages the adoption of a common set of car classes and standards to make it easier for clubs to organise events which bring together people of all skill levels of building and racing. Common standards mean that enthusiasts can build cars knowing there are likely to be a number of opportunities to race them at open events. The current standards can be viewed on the 1/32 Car Standards and 1/24 Car Standards pages.

Welcome to the home of the independent Classic Slot Car Racing Association. We aim to promote and support all forms of ‘retro’ scale slot car racing, both in the UK and also around the world. You can find out more about our aims here.
