What do we do?
Essentially we race radio controlled 1/10th. scale Off-Road racing cars. All cars are electric powered.The racing caters for people from all backgrounds and does not discriminate on sex, age, or disability.It does provide; a challenging sporting environment where the skill required to drive and build the cars can be tested against other like-minded competitors.
