Welcome to the 1/12 Electric Circuit Section of the BRCA.
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.
Hello and welcome to 12th Oval Racing.
This class of racing is the oldest in the country and started off way back in the 1970s. The cars we race today are 1/12th scale replicas of the modern day Oval cars with some of the Old style cars mixed in. 12th Oval cars are of a simple design but have the strength to cope with most types of contact which is part of Oval racing. That said, the cars are typically straightforward to drive at a basic level and are traditionally quite easy to get the hang of quickly.
The relative simplicity of an Oval car chassis ensures that this is a competition that truly rewards a driver’s skill, consistency and ability to understand car setup. The result of a five minute national race is regularly decided by fractions of a second. 12th Oval can be raced all year round and there is likely to be an indoor club near you which supports the class at their weekly events.
The 12th Scale Oval Section races Hot Rods, Ministox, Bangers & Saloon Stocks, and new for 2016 Saloon Stocks have been split into 2ltr and 1300cc formulas.
Welcome to the GT Circuit Section of the BRCA.
The GT Circuit section was created in 2014 and we are a sub-section of the 1/12th Electric Circuit Section (hence the banner above) and combines three different classes: GT12, World GT10 and Formula 1.
This variety should ensure there is a class to suit most drivers. From the wonderful simplicity of a GT12 that both welcomes a beginner and rewards the skill of a more experienced racer, the greater speed and complexity of a World GT10 and the beautiful scale looks of a Formula 1.
The BRCA GT Circuit Section, together with the host clubs, run a professional, friendly and well organised competition that welcomes drivers of all abilities. Our national indoor series runs from January to April, so whatever the weather you can continue to enjoy racing in the warm and dry. Most of our venues provide hot and cold food and drinks. All events provide pit tables and chairs for our competitors as well as mains electricity.
Our aim is to organise the best national championship in the world while giving good value for money. We hope you will come and race with us. Please do not hesitate to contact us directly if we can be of any assistance.
Good luck with your racing during the forthcoming season.
