Close Battles in Eastbourne to start the 2023 season. 

Important information regarding rounds 1 and 2 of the 2023 BRCA LMP12 Nationals.

2022 GT12 season review!

96 racers, 6 Rounds, 3 different winners  - 1 champion. 

Congratulations to Dan Robins reclaiming the title of BRCA GT12 national champion.

Thank you to all the racers who attended and every one behind the scenes who organised or ran these events. The season was huge success and hopefully the first of many that this new committee will run.

 

Round 1

The season kicked off at Mb models in September with the usual suspects topping the time sheets from the start. It was Mackman, Robins and Jewit showing the rest of the field how it's done and 3 names which went on to feature at the top of the time sheets at almost all events.
It was to be Mark Jewitt's day though and from 3rd on the grid snatched victory when Dan and Adam had a coming together creating just enough space for the pass, and the win.

Round 2

The series travelled south to Eastbourne where Andy Murray joined us, with him taking TQ and flag to flag victory in the A final but Robins and Jewit were hot on his heals with the top 3 covered by just a few seconds.

Round 3 

The start of a busy month with 2 GT12 nationals and an EFRA GP taking place in November, first we went to Tamworth with the busiest event of the season and full house of 60 entries. Murray again taking TQ with Robins, Jewit and Mackman close behind. It turned out to be a very close finish with Robins keeping the pressure on right to the end but Murray managed to hang onto victory by just 3 tenths of a second. Mark Jewit maintained his championship lead through his great consistent driving.

 

Round 4 

On to a new venue with a trip to Stafford, the track layout raised a few eyebrows on first sight with a tricky double chicane at the far end, showing the men from the boys. Though in this case it was the boys showing the men how to do it! 2 new names were at the sharp end following qualifying with Sam Coult and Ewan Thompson joining Dan Robins at the top, the 3 youngsters thumbs clearly faster than the rest. It was Robins though that took top spot in the A final his first win of the season and now championship leader.

 

Round 5 

Chesterfield, a regular venue for 1/12th racing except now in their new home at David Nieper academy. 
Despite his best efforts Murray couldn't match the pace of Robins with Jewitt again in 3rd and keeping the pressure on in the race for the title.
In the race, Robins didn't have it all his own way with Murray taking the lead only for Dan to make a last lap, last corner challenge and snatch the win across the line and with it the title, as Murray wouldn't be attending the final round.

Round 6

Another new venue Stoke RCMCC.
Their first time hosting any national event and they put on a good track within an excellent facility.
With only pride at stake the racing was close as ever and again Robins, Jewitt and Mackman finished the season as it has started by topping qualifying. It was Robins who for the third time celebrated on the top step.

 

It's been fantastic to see some younger drivers climb through the field with 5 of the top 10 in the championship sixteen or younger. We hope these young stars of the future encourage more youth to take up our hobby. Keep up the good work Dan Robins, Sam Coult, Oscar Keen, Finn Whitelock and Ewan Thompson 

Once again congratulations to Dan Robins and all the competitors for taking part and a big thank you to the host clubs for organising such great events.

2022 1/10 IC & GT8 BRCA Nationals Round 5 Brookland - Here's what happened!

In 2022 Eastbourne made their worst start in the short history of the KOC series. 4th place in RD2 left the club behind Adur, Aldershot and West London in the standings. From there, the team bounced back like all great champions. Coming into RD5, the home side needed to finish 3rd to take the title for a third consecutive time.

The team's championship is a signature feature of the King of Clubs series. Each club nominates six drivers from their membership to make the team for the round. These drivers then score points for the club based on their position in their first final race - no matter which final they are in - 1 pt for first, 2 for a second, 3 for third etc. The club with the lowest score wins the round.

Coming into the championship's final round, the Adur team needed to win and for either Aldershot, Colchester or West London to finish ahead of Eastbourne to take the title themselves.

Grid List

The BRCA Large Scale Off Road (LSOR) Section are excited to host the 2023 LSOR EFRA Grand Prix on the weekend of 22nd and 23rd April 2023 at North West Large Scale.

This event will be combined with the BRCA LSOR National Series Round 2. 

With an increase in popularity outside of our normal stomping ground (Midlands & South Wales), the section decided it should try travelling a little further North this season, and with that our first National event of 2016/17 was held last weekend at MB Raceway near Leeds. 

Guidelines on the acceptable use of social media and online media by BRCA members

Reasoning

The aim of this article is to offer guidance as to what is and isn’t acceptable for BRCA members to post online, specifically with regard to racing incidents and judicial matters, regulations, fellow competitors, paddock rumours and speculation, Club management and race meeting officials.

Social media and personal websites - Facebook in particular - are extremely powerful tools both in terms of communications and interactivity, and provide a valued platform for RC Motorsport competitors and enthusiasts alike. Since it is in the public domain, interactive and open-ended, there is however a more significant onus of responsibility on competitors to behave courteously, politely and without becoming significantly provocative to others. It is clearly futile to try to discourage the use of social media since it offers more positives than negatives, however this document is intended to assist BRCA members in avoiding some of the common pitfalls that can arise and to help social media to be used in a responsible way. 

Guidelines

BRCA members should present themselves online as they would when meeting face to face, and avoid posting anything that could be seen as aggressive, deliberately controversial or disparaging towards fellow competitors, race meeting officials or the Club itself. This includes not only comments but also deliberately provocative media, whether posts on websites, blogs and forums or the likes of videos/memes and social media.

Competitors are reminded that they are participating in a sport, and sporting decisions are governed largely by volunteers. Abuse towards such officials is as unacceptable online as it is in person. If you feel a sporting decision is incorrect then BRCA/Club procedures should be followed to appeal rather than online vilification in a fashion to the detriment of the Section, Club, Officials, and ultimately competitors, whether on social media or a person website/blog.

For disagreements of a less official nature, please be reminded that if friendly resolution is not possible face to face, then working to resolve differences is always better in private, rather than in the public eye, for the good of yourselves and the sport in general. 

Members are also reminded that statements written and published online (whether on social media or a personal website) that defame the character of a person, business or organisation are no different to those same words in written print and are equally libellous, whereupon legal action may be taken.

For the avoidance of doubt, by registering for a BRCA Membership, Affiliated Club series or championship, the Club and competitor agrees to be bound by the above guidelines of online behaviour. As such, BRCA reserves the right to cancel any membership should online actions of an individual – or persons representing an individual – contravene the above.

  • Don’t write something that you wouldn’t be prepared to say to someone.
  • When posting on a social media website, assume that anybody can access that post.
  • Determine whether you are participating in a personal or official capacity and consider whether your opinions and activity are appropriate in that context.
  • Remember that participating in social media results in your comments being permanently available and open to being re-published by other media outlets. It should be assumed that anything published in social media will remain available indefinitely, even if it is deleted from the original site.
  • Respect confidentiality, stay within the legal framework and be aware that safeguarding, libel, slander, copyright and data protection laws apply.
  • Be aware that your interaction with social media may attract interest from the wider media, so proceed with caution whether you are participating in an official or personal capacity.
  • Never use social media to insult anyone directly or indirectly.
  • BRCA Members who hold a position of trust and/or responsibility over young people (ie those under 18 years of age) in the course of their duties should be very careful when interacting with those young people via social media.
  • You should be mindful at all times that UK law continues to be applicable in the online environment.
