Welcome to the F1 Stock Cars section.

Hi, I’m Sam Jacklin. I got into the world of RC racing as an off season hobby from the full size version back in 2019. I was elected in as chairman in October 2021 and it is something I feel very passionate about. With my time in full scale, I believe it can add a fresh new look to the fast and furious world of 12th scale.

F1 Stockcar’s are known for being the fastest and most brutal of all oval motorsport. 12th scale is no different, with cars running 6 cell Nimh or 1s lipo batteries with a 10.5t motor, they sure do fly around the small oval tracks. With cars armoured up with 9mm plastic bumpers to knock the opponent’s out of the way, it makes for some exciting racing!  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.

After such a long COVID period where not a lot has happened it’s exciting to start getting things in place for the 2022 season.

F1 Stockcar’s are run nationwide but with the majority of the drivers coming from the Midlands and Manchester.

After some promotion work at the recent BSCDA driver’s presentation there is a high interest in getting 12th F1 Stockcar’s at the full size race meetings so now really is the time to get involved. Do you want to race with your full size superstar? 12th Stockcar’s is very much a sport for anyone at any time.

Do you want to be crowned champion of the world? Or just control the uncontrollable? Either way with a new set of team members and new tracks emerging it really is an exciting time to get involved in the greatest show on carpet.

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
