The BRCA 1/12th Circuit Section along with the BRCA Special Events Team are pleased to announced the GT12 World Championship and Model Motorsport Show 2017

The event for the GT12's is the first major international event for the class and the aim is to introduce it to the world wide racing community by giving it the showpiece it so richly deserves. It is hoped that we will get entries from across the globe and debut new cars from new manufacturers too, the racing will be continious over the two days of competition in 'Reedy' format.

The 'Best of the Best' in two days of heads up racing, in this class which already has a reputation for spectacular racing, should be something to see - alongside the Model Motorsport Show which will give our industry the opportunity to demonstrate their products to a huge audience - last year's show saw 96,000 people visit over the weekend!

Last year we held the Reedy Race at the same venue..... take a look

Manufacturer Information

Manufacturer Information

The GT12 class has been developed in the UK to a point where it’s providing some fantastically accessible racing for the indoor electric scene, it’s probably turned it from a small group of people to one enjoyed by thousands at over a hundred clubs throughout the UK.

The intent of the class is as an introduction to the sport, we have a UK rule (that doesn’t apply to this event) that a version of the car needs to be available as a rolling chassis for £100 – we would hope that new products will follow in this spirit.

The aim of this race meeting is to give the class the international boost it now needs – this class is far too good for it not to grow.

Manufacturer Teams

Teams of upto 4 drivers can be entered into this meeting – and your nominated drivers are guaranteed a place in the event.

Entering a team is easy – just send an email to gt12wc@brca.org and let us know your team name and all the contact details for the team manager or company representative dealing with your team for this event.

At this stage we don’t even need to know who your drivers are – that can follow on, once we have the contact details we’ll correspond with you direct.

Registering Your Nominated Drivers

Simply ensure your driver(s) – has registered for the event then you can start this process off with the first one and let us know the rest as and when you can – email gt12wc@brca.org to let us know who they are.

To Know About

  • The construction rules for this class are on this site, please have a read – they should be simple to follow but we’re happy to help and advise as required – just ask.
  • We appreciate that some of you will be running new products at this event, probably still at the prototype stage – however we need a chassis plate sample for scruitineering purposes, this needs to be supplied by the end of December in its final form.
  • Drivers – 20 places have been allocated for you to nominate drivers, this doesn’t mean there are only 20 places available for your racers – it means that we will ensure any driver you nominate, who doesn’t qualify for a place in one of the normal country blocs, will have a place.
  • Teams – we will invite you to enter a Team of upto 4 into a Team Event – bodyshells to be identical in colour scheme please – the top 3 scores to count, drivers can come from any bloc, and this process can be done right up to the date of the event (i.e. you can do this out once you know the entrants!)

Please note; - we will also be accepting Team entries from Countries and groups of drivers etc.

  • Model Motorsport Show – surrounding this race meeting is a trade show, this is free for exhibitors to be at – we trust you will work with your UK importer to ensure you have a presence in this show, our commentary team will direct the spectators to the trade stands to see your products.
  • Sponsorship – we will be keeping the entry fee at a very reasonable £60, irrespective of team or independent driver. However we will be asking you to take up trackside advertising spaces, this will be very reasonable priced – our sole aim being that we cover our costs to host this event.
