Carisma Attending Recon G6 UK Edition


On May 26 through 28th, 2018 Bracken Rocks in Derbyshire will host the UK’s third Recon G6 event.

Hosted as ever by it’s American figurehead and founder, Brian Parker it will, as ever, be three full days of family orientated Scale Adventure. For those that have never attended, get ready for long trails, fun challenges, a few surprises, being part of the ever growing G6 family and running with like minded people.

For just £10, per rig, per day expect mud, water, multiple 100 gate trails with a variety of obstacles designed to test both rig and driver.  Do come prepared with plenty of charged packs, a waterproofed rig, sensible footwear, bug spray, and an open mind. There will be objects to find, things to record on your log book and fun personal challenges. This isn’t a competition. This is about having fun and being part of something much bigger than just yourself. Helping others finish the event and being an ambassador for the scale scene are far more important prerequisites than finishing a trail first, with the least penalties or in the fastest time.

There are prizes, but these are presented by the team to G6er’s that embrace the G6 ethos, and by doing so keep this aspect of the hobby vibrant and welcoming to all. Scale has no gender or age restrictions, first timers run with veteran G6er’s, 3 generations of families take to the trails together, and make sure they all get to the finish, regardless of whats happens along the way. Friendships get formed that can last a lifetime, and the community grows as a consequence.

There is catering on site all weekend offering hot and cold food and drinks. Camping on site will be weather dependant, as will be parking on the lower field. The car park has good capacity, but always fills up fast. There is a local campsite just 15 minutes drive away suitable for motor homes,  caravans and those wanting power and shower facilities while camping. There is no power at the G6 site, but toilet facilities are available and will be open 24/7 throughout the event. Generators are permitted as long as they are switched off at a reasonable time to allow those camping to sleep!

There will be an on site Hobby store in attendance, with all major brands represented, including Carisma Scale Adventure. The Team Drivers and brand manager will be in attendance, and we are supplying prizes for the event.


Postcode for the site is DE4 5AS and exact Sat Nav coordinates are embedded in the image above. To make things even easier there is an official marker on Google Maps under: “Trials Bike, Recon G6 & UK Scale Nationals”.

We hope to see you and your rigs there, and as ever are looking forward to this event with great anticipation.  For further information on the Recon G6 UK Edition head over to the dedicated Facebook page HERE
