Welcome to the 1/12 Electric Circuit Section of the BRCA.
1/12 scale is one of the oldest RC racing classes still in existence and can trace it's roots way back to the 1970's. Traditionally it was a training and development ground for drivers who later went on to become champions in this and other classes. More recently the class has become more specialised, due in no small part to the development of a wide range of other RC categories over the years.
That said, 1/12 is still a class that caters for competitors of all ages and abilities. The recent introduction of the GT12 class has resulted in an explosion in popularity of 1/12 scale racing at club level, and our national championships continue to be well attended.
Whether you're just a casual club racer or a pro driver, the 1/12 section has something to offer you and we invite you to come and share experiences with us.
Welcome to the 1/12th Oval Section.
My name is Emma Parker. I was voted in as 1/12th section chairlady on 21st September 2019.
I have been a part of the 1/12th F2 Stockar class since 2017 when my son started racing. My first roll within the class was Public Relations Officer. I did press reports and magazine write ups as well as videos and general promotion of our sport.
We are one of the cheapest forms of radio controlled car racing there is, which still offers great racing and great fun at the same me. Bangers and stockcar racing is a full contact RC sport. So having to smash and bash your way through 5 minutes of fast and furious racing to get to the finish line is great.
1/12th stock cars have been around since the late 1970s where they used to race on wooden floors. Now a days we race on more modern tracks made from fitted carpets. Which gives much better grip for faster more controlled racing. All the tracks are fitted with a timing system and each car has its own transponder to count laps and record those race positions. Races usually last 5 mins, with the exception of championship finals and they are 6 minutes.
There’s lots of clubs around the UK and Scotland who race 1/12th Oval. Bangers are very popular with a lot of people. They even make bangers from metal, so they crash like proper cars. Awesome fun.
We welcome everyone, no matter your age or gender. You’re all welcome to come and have a go. To find your local track/club, take a look through the book or pop on to the BRCA website..

Welcome to the GT Circuit Section of the BRCA.
The GT Circuit section was created in 2014 and we are a sub-section of the 1/12th Electric Circuit Section (hence the banner above) and combines three different classes: GT12, World GT10 and Formula 1.
This variety should ensure there is a class to suit most drivers. From the wonderful simplicity of a GT12 that both welcomes a beginner and rewards the skill of a more experienced racer, the greater speed and complexity of a World GT10 and the beautiful scale looks of a Formula 1.
The BRCA GT Circuit Section, together with the host clubs, run a professional, friendly and well organised competition that welcomes drivers of all abilities. Our national indoor series runs from January to April, so whatever the weather you can continue to enjoy racing in the warm and dry. Most of our venues provide hot and cold food and drinks. All events provide pit tables and chairs for our competitors as well as mains electricity.
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.
