1/8th Stock Cars

Welcome to the Stock Cars section, where we race 1/8th scale versions of full size Brisca F1 stock cars. Our scaled down cars use a welded steel chassis and painted plastic bodyshell, RC servos for steering and throttle control and are powered by 3.5cc nitro fuelled engines producing 2-3bhp which is delivered to the rear wheels via a belt driven single beam axle.  

 

The season runs from March to October with meetings held across the country (and in Holland) at purpose built tracks that are oval shaped, 30-40 meters in length with tarmac surfaces and steel plate barriers.Not only is contact legal but it is encouraged, as all cars have heavy duty front and rear steel bumpers which are used to move other cars off the racing line in an attempt to get past. Drivers are graded based on their skill level with better drivers starting races at the back of the grid.

 

All the 1:8th scale Stock Car racers appear to be happy with the current rules because no new proposals have been submitted for consideration at this year’s AGM. It’s taken over 40 years to reach this equilibrium so next season should see more great outdoor oval racing action.

It’s that time of year already, the BRCA AGM is almost upon us, Saturday 29th October 11.00 to 15.00. Venue is again the impressive British Motor museum at Gaydon make sure you come along to celebrate the seasons successes, choose the candidates to lead the section for the next 12 months and have your say on rules and new proposals.
