What do we do?

Essentially we race radio controlled 1/10th. scale Off-Road racing cars.  All cars are electric powered.
The racing caters for people from all backgrounds and does not discriminate on sex, age, or disability.
It does provide; a challenging sporting environment where the skill required to drive and build the cars can be tested against other like-minded competitors.

Where do we do it?

The short answer is everywhere.
It’s quite likely that there is a club somewhere near where you live.  Included in this website are details of the representatives of your Region, along with their contact details and even a map with many clubs that could be just round the corner from your home.
Another method of finding your local club is by contacting your local model shops, five minutes spent on the phone or internet, can open up a whole new dimension and fun in model motor sport.

Who are we?

We are a group of RC racing enthusiasts whose aims are best summed up by objective No. 1 — ‘To promote the construction and racing of radio controlled cars’.   Please remember we are all non-paid volunteers doing what we can for model car racing.  


 

Doesn’t time fly; we are already in the 2015 season!  All us experiencing some great weather conditions leading up to this event with temps up to 22c in places.  Everyone is looking forward to kick-starting their season.  The first event of 2015 will be held at Robin Hood Raceway in Blyth.  This lovely venue is also holding the European 1/10th Championships later this year and with 2 tracks on site, the organisers have been extremely busy to say the least.

The Track
Kidderminster Radio Control Car Club is one of the oldest National venues in the UK.  Founded in 1984 in the towns car park!  The club became popular with its central location.  Growing bigger and bigger it moved from a car park to its current location.  The track was redesigned to its current format around 1994/5.  Many great events have been held here.  Some would say legends of our sport competed here on their road to glory.  This is round 2 of the national championship and another venue making huge efforts to be ready for the event.  Kiddy as its known is an undulated track with plenty of technical sections.  No big air jumps here but plenty of small hop jumps and bumpy sections too.  The cars have to be on song here.  Another great track to test the skills of the very best in the land.

The Club and Track
Telford was established in and around 1988.  A small club which was then situated in Broseley Shropshire.
The club grew and subsequently held many BRCA regional events from 1994 through to 2006.
It also held National events in 2004 where it entertained the BRCA Juniors and full National events in 2005 and ’06.
After ’06, the club then went through a transitional period, where it moved to its current location on the boarder of Shropshire and Staffordshire in 2012.

The Club and Track
EPR is a long time established club.  Formally known as Eden Park Overlanders, had some terrible vandalism back in 1999.  This caused the club to shut and certainly was a massive loss to the local club scene as well as some major events held there in the past.  I recall the British Grand Prix was held here back in 1997 or maybe ’98 with some of the UK and Europe’s best competing.
