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.

Round 7 of the BRCA East of England Regional and the last round of 2016 headed to Norfolk, the home of Boughton Raceway, where the weather was looking good for what would be a busy meeting with championship presentations to be completed at the end of a busy schedule.

Round 6 of the BRCA East of England Regional series headed to the Herts electric track which could see the 4wd main and junior championships crowned. There was also the small matter of drivers wanting to get a decent score in to give themselves a shot at the championship podium.

Today marks the end of the 2016 regional 4WD championship. There was a good turn out, with 78 drivers in total. The day started sunny, with a potential threat of showers later in the day. The track was technical, proving challenging for most drivers.

With the racing season drawing to a close, the BRCA 1/8th Circuit section headed to the northern venue of Wombwell Model Car Club, with rain forecast on the Sunday.

Round 8 of this year’s championship was hosted by the Mendip circuit in Weston Super Mare and sponsored by Zen Racing. With the championship already won by Green with an almost perfect score, the race was on for the minor places.

The second edition British Open GP, sponsored by DH Modelsport and Contact RC Tyres, took place over the weekend of the 27th & 28th of August at the Halifax circuit in West Yorkshire. The event would cater for 1/10th 200mm, 1/10th Sports GT, 1/8th GT, 1/8th IC & 1/8th electric with over 80 entries making it an exciting weekend. The race would take a similar structure to that of the popular ENS series with round by round qualifying and a single sided bump up finals format. Along with the race, a social event was hosted on the Saturday evening along with a raffle with prizes donated by the event sponsors. With the area known among racers as having its own climate, rain would make for challenging conditions throughout qualifying. 

The weekend of September 3rd/4th was the 5th and final round of the BRCA 1/8th Rallycross nationals at the brilliant Slough track, with the last lot of vital championship points to play for everyone would have to bring their A-Game! A few changes to the track between the Ebuggy/Truggy nationals meant it would be a new challenge for every driver! And the track looked fantastic, credit to the whole team at Slough, the perfect venue for the final round of the 2016 nationals.
