BRCA 1/10th IC Circuit RC Car Racing

The 1/10th IC Circuit section comprises of two different classes of 1/10th scale nitro powered vehicles; 200mm and Sports GT.  Both classes are supported well at club meeting up and down the country.  Our national series comprises of 8 rounds, with only your best 6 results to count, and runs from March to October.  The series visits circuits as far up the country as Halifax in West Yorkshire and as far south as Weston-super-mare in North Somerset. 

Both types of car are powered by 2.1cc engines and run on foam tyres.  However when the circuit is wet, rubber tyres may hold an advantage.  More in depth rules can be found at the top of this page.   

Our national meetings are run over two days, with Saturday playing host to open practice for all participants.  Sunday is made up of 4 rounds of 5 minute qualifying heats and finals for all.  Your best time from the heats deciding on which final you will be assigned to with the top 10 times entering the A Final, the next 10 in the B Final and so on.  The finals contain more of an endurance aspect with the A Finals being of 30 minute duration!

Opportunities to represent the country are also available in the form of the annual European Championships and the World Championships which is hosted every other year.

Sports GT A Final Podium

For the penultimate round of the BRCA 1/10th IC national series, the Adur club situated on the South coast of the county would be the venue. Unfortunately, due to the travel time required, many racers made the decision to not attend the meeting meaning that 23 drivers would compete with 4 drivers attending to race the 1/8th GT support class. The weather for the weekend proved to be cooler on the Saturday practice day with the temperatures rising for the main event.

The final round of the BRCA 1/10th IC National Series took place at Mendip Raceway over the weekend of the 1st and 2nd of October. The Saturday practice day proved to be wet meaning that the majority of drivers would go into the race day with minimal practice time.

Round 6 of the BRCA 1/10th IC Nationals was held on the weekend of the 23rd and 24th of July at the Cotswold track situated on Kemble Airfield. Although the sun was out in force on Saturday, Sunday was to be a more overcast affair and a total of 42 drivers took part in the three classes of 1/10th 200mm, 1/10th Sports GT and 1/8th GT.
