 RC Bike Manual


As you may already appreciate the RC Bike section of the radio control model family is probably the poorest for available information on our sport.

Whilst we would always encourage visiting trackside and talking to us, that might not always be practical.

Written information has at best in the past been sketchy, sometimes incorrect, not relevant or even written in the wrong language.

All is not lost, thanks to the linguistic skills of Davide Varriccho from Holeshot Hobbies, Australia, we now have an RC Bike Manual for expert or beginner.

The manual is freely downloadable direct from Holeshot Hobbies HERE

BRCA 1/12th Section

For information about the 12th Section and Covid-19 please Click Here

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.

The BRCA (British Radio Car Association) are the governing body of the radio-controlled model motor racing hobby within Great Britain   We have over 7,000 members who on any day of the week will be racing at one of the many model vehicle clubs around the country.

We race radio-controlled model cars, trucks and bikes; however, this isn’t as simple a statement as it might seem! We have over 13 different classes which run national championships who award annual UK titles within the association. They cater for racing vehicles from small electric powered ones that do about 30mph through to cars powered by 3.5cc internal combustion engines that do over 80mph and even those with 30cc petrol engines no matter if its indoor or outdoor we have a class for it.

The association provides a framework for not only a level platform of racing across the country but also for those wanting to form a club and provide a safe place for racing to occur at. 

Our racing caters for people from all backgrounds and doesn’t discriminate on sex, age, or disability. Radio-controlled model motor racing does provide a challenging sporting environment where the skill required to drive and build the cars can be tested against other likeminded competitors.

 Unlike our full-size counterparts there is no sitting in your racing vehicle and feeling the ride its all down to hand and eye coordination along with watching how your “race ride” handles the track which is challenging your co-ordination.
