Welcome to the 10th Electric Circuit Section of the BRCA, sometimes known as "Touring Cars"
The BRCA 10th Electric Circuit Section, together with the host clubs, run a professional, friendly and well organised competition that welcomes drivers of all abilities.
Our aim is to organise the best national championship in the world while giving good value for money. We hope you will come and race with us. Please do not hesitate to contact us directly if we can be of any assistance.
Good luck with your racing during the forthcoming season.
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.
Where do we do it?
The short answer is everywhere.It’s quite likely that there is a club somewhere near where you live. Included in this website are details of the representatives of your Region, along with their contact details and even a map with many clubs that could be just round the corner from your home.Another method of finding your local club is by contacting your local model shops, five minutes spent on the phone or internet, can open up a whole new dimension and fun in model motor sport.
Who are we?
We are a group of RC racing enthusiasts whose aims are best summed up by objective No. 1 — ‘To promote the construction and racing of radio controlled cars’. Please remember we are all non-paid volunteers doing what we can for model 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 5 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 4 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.
If you are interested in starting in 1/10th IC or GT8 racing then why not pop along to your local club or even one of our national meetings where the racers would be more than happy to advise you.
