Welcome to Rolling Start - Stock Car Racing on the web

Find out all the news faster than ever before!

Discussion & Chat

Do you want to talk about stock car racing with like-minded people throughout the week and close-season and get lots of email to boot?  If so, all you have to do is subscribe to any or all of the following News and Discussion Groups.  Membership is free in all cases. 

It has to be said that the quality of discussion can vary considerably!  Even so, the big advantage of the lists is that you will probably find out about most things on the UK oval race scene far earlier than you will from other sources.

This group is for discussion of UK short track oval racing formulae.  It was established by Paul Walker and is unmoderated.  Like all Newsgroups it does tend to attract some postings that have little, if anything, to do with intended topic.  Often the source for important news such meeting cancellations, results and the launch of new web-sites and major updates of others. 

The charter for the newsgroup can be found at the following address,



There are a number of sites with integral chatrooms, including Rolling Start!  It can be a bit hit and miss and you never know who you might find there.  If you are new to chatrooms be careful as you can never be sure who you might be talking to!  If you find the chatrooms are empty you can stay in the room until someone arrives - go surfing to pass the time.  Some folk also announce their intention to go to a chatroom in a discussion group. 

The busiest chatroom is to be found on Gary's Oval Racing  You will be able to chat most evenings sometime between 10pm and 1am.  Very entertaining!
