Lothian Radio Control Car Club. 

The club is keen to restart racing and is liasing with our hall which is open again for a restart when restriction allow. 

Dundee and Angus Radio Car Klub

The club hope to restart racing as soon as it is safe to do so. The committee of the bowling club where the club is located are currently still furloughed and this has made it difficult to get in touch about their reopening plans. We will update our club Facebook page with more information as we get it. 

Falkirk Radio Car Club

The Falkirk club has no plans for imminent racing because our venue is closed and currently being used as a testing centre. We are monitoring developments and hope to clarify the position soon.

Grampian Radio Car Club

The 2020/21 indoor season at the Betteridge Centre in Newtonhill was heavily impacted by the pandemic and the season was cut short.  However, the intention is to hold a full race program from October 2021 to April 2022 as normal with Mini class, Mini Touring Car class and Touring car class.  Keep an eye on the Facebook page for updates.

Stonehaven District Radio Car Club

For the 2021 outdoor season, we intend to hold a full 12 round championship for 1/10th Touring Car, 2wd Mini, and 1/10th 4wd and 2wd Offroad classes. We also hope to offer a mini touring car class if there is enough interest. The first round is planned for 9th of May with the rest of the dates below.

The other big news from SDRCC is the arrival of a truck load (literally) of astroturf, repurposed from the local tennis club.  There is a planning application lodged with the council for their consideration to allow construction of a permanent astro offroad track!  This has been causing quite a buzz lately with a newspaper article, radio interview and television appearance within a busy 3 day spell in mid April - all to promote the clubs efforts to grow!

Keep an eye on the club website and Facebook page for more updates.
