BRCA 10th Off Road Nationals

UK 1/10th Off Road Truck Nationals. The ONLY series dedicated to 1/10 RC Short Course Truck Racing and stadium trucks racing in the UK covering both 2wd and 4wd classes. This series affords its racers with unrivalled value for money in terms of track time with no less than 7 races through the day, 4 rounds of qualifying and 3 rounds of finals for all.

The Series takes place on some of the best UK Off Road race venues. The series caters for all abilities and age groups and with many new Junior racers planning to join us this year this trend looks to continue. With increasing popularity and a great bunch of travelling racers there is no better time to come and join in the fun!

Short Course RC Racing is as competitive as you want it to be but the emphasis is about having fun.

1/8 Circuit British OPEN Championship 2020

Your committee has been constantly working with tracks and clubs, monitoring the advice given by the government and we now feel that as the COVID-19 situation is evolving the 1/8 Circuit committee are in a position to arrange racing from July 2020, subject to the guidelines and restrictions allowing us to do so. Our racing will be somewhat different, ensuring that we all follow social distancing and the governments guidance to stay safe and keep the pandemic at bay. We are planning five one-day race meetings over the summer, for you the racers, but please bear in mind that these will only be possible if the government guidance allows.

Entries will be limited and numbers may differ from track to track subject to the social distancing and government guidance and therefore entry will be on a first come first serve basis. All entries should be made via the BRCA website in the normal manner and PayPal payment is requested at time of entry. To race we must rely on your common sense, for example you must be fit and well on race day, we will have to alter how we go up and down the rostrum with a limited number of drivers on track at one time etc. This initiative gives us the opportunity to run our cars, support clubs and the RC industry and get back to sport we love.

Meeting format for 2020

The British Open Championship will be based on best three results from the five events with trophies and awards for FTD in each class, winner and runners up in each final. We will follow 2020 technical rules, but race procedure will need to change as we are holding one day meetings and not the 2020 two day race procedure. The final format for the one day events will be at the section committee’s discretion, but is likely to be a practice run, three heats and finals; this type of format is felt to offer the racers adequate time to travel to and from the circuit in a single day. A full race procedure / format and track usage guide will follow in due course.

If government guidelines change with respect to staying overnight other than at your home address then the committee will review the duration and format of the race meetings. We will speak to clubs about the possibility of camping overnight at the track if government guidelines allow. Keep watching the social media feeds and our section pages on the BRCA web site for updates, as stated this is all provisional and subject to government guidance with respect to COVID-19 but we trying our best to be able to provide you some racing this season.
