12th Circuit National Series

The BRCA 1/12th Circuit Section is pleased to announce its calendar of events for the 2016/17 National Championships for 1/12th scale electric LMP cars.

The BRCA Nationals have earned a reputation for being a hugely competitive series with the friendliest and most welcoming atmosphere you will find. This is a series of events, open to drivers of all abilities, that offer the opportunity to race against and learn from some of the country’s best drivers.

The championships will be contested over six indoor rounds on carpet, with each driver’s best four scores counting towards their final placing in the series. Through the season we will visit several of our favourite and established venues, together with a couple of new ones.
The venues have been chosen based on their geographic spread, the standard of their track and facilities, their previous track record of hosting similar events and, of course, the feedback we have received from our competitors from last year.

Classes and notes
This year sees some changes to the classes we are running.

Saturdays will now offer the exciting prospect of the whole field competing in a single stock class for 13.5 turn motors. With up to ninety drivers in a single class we are anticipating some close, competitive racing with the opportunity to truly measure yourself against the very best UK drivers.

Sundays will now offer a revised modified class aimed at being within the capabilities of a wider field of drivers while still offering a challenge for the most talented. This now has a limit of 6.5 turn motors and ‘blinky’ speed controllers.
Sunday will also offer a ‘Sport’ class for 13.5 turn motors.

One other change to the rules means it is now optional to run a roll mast.

Saturdays

  • 1/12th Scale 13.5 Stock Class (for cars running 1S LiPo batteries, 13.5 turn brushless motors and approved ‘blinky’ speed controllers)
