1/12th  Stock Car racing 

Cars

All the cars are a reasonable representation of the full size Brisca F1 and F2 stock cars being raced on Ovals around the country. 

Unlike other classes,with the F1 Stockcars there is no shop ready kit available, F2 Stockcars however have kits availbale from several manufactures. If in doubt always head to your local club for advice.

Type of Track

These cars are raced indoors on a carpeted Oval Track. There are a numerous Oval clubs up and down the country, most of which can be found in the back of this booklet, and/or on the BRCA web site.

There is no standard size of track, some are quite small, while others are quite large in comparison, this adds to fun of adjusting your driving skill to match the track conditions, just as in full size racing.

Racing

Most clubs race on an evening all year round , with heats of upto 8 cars racing for 5 minutes., with 3 or 4 rounds and a final. This is full contact racing, and it isn’t necessary to be the fastest, but be skilful in how you handle or avoid the hits that bring the success.

The BRCA National Series runs from January through to September mainly on weekends

At the Nationals there are trophies at each meeting and points for the end of season trophies for the best drivers 

All ages and abilities are catered for and most clubs and venues have disables access. We hold the World Championships and European Championships on alternate years.

Other

One thing that is apparent at stock car meetings, be it National or Club events, is everybody is having fun. There is a serious side to the sport, winning trophies, points and the World Championships, but the main ethos is having fun. 

You will not break the bank if you wish to take up this form of radio controlled car racing, for as little as around

£200 you could be on the track racing. The best way to find out about these is to visit one of the local clubs that race them

 

After my first taste of Oval 12th racing I saw myself on the road again this time to the TTT Raceway the little village of Stanton just outside of Burton on Trent.
