The BRCA is pleased to announce the 2012 National Championship for 1/10th Scale F1 and GT10 cars!
This year a 4-round series has been agreed, with events spread across the country as follows;
Sunday 6th May – Ardent Raceway, Derbyshire
Sunday 10th June – Maritime Raceway, Kent
Sunday 1st July – Teesside Radio Car Club, Teesside
Sunday 2nd September – Chesterfield, Derbyshire
The aims of the series are;
To provide regular club racers with a recognised BRCA national championship to compete in
To support and bolster club level racing of F1 and GT10 cars
To encourage competition between clubs and participants that may not occur otherwise
To encourage new drivers to take part in organised events across the UK
As was the case last year, the series will be organised and run by the BRCA 1/12th scale committee under the BRCA 1/10th Electric On-Road banner. However, if the series is a success and continues to prosper then there could be an opportunity for a new BRCA committee and stand-alone class to be created.
For more information about classes, rules and contacts, please visit the F1 & GT10 pages on the BRCA website here.
Booking in will be open soon and will be managed via the BRCA Website.

Luke was the class of the fiel all day and has transferred his recently acquired skills racing 1/12th scale cars onto their bigger 1/10th scale counterparts with relative ease. Mark Burgess was 2nd on the A final grid ahead of his friend and racing rival Jason Butterfield, both also driving Associateds.
In the A final Luke cruised to a comfortable win and in doing so almost lapped the entire field! He was followed home by Jason. A close race ensued for 3rd between front row starter Mark Burgess and Chris O’Donoghue who’d started 4th. Chris eventually came out on top with his BMI car. It was interesting to see the closeness in performance of the two cars, as Mark ran a 1S 10.5 setup, while Chris chose a 2S 17.5 arrangement in his car. Read more…
