LMP12 National dates for 2016/17

1/12th Circuit

We are delighted to announce the dates for the 2016/17 LMP12 National season.  This year we have two new venues, Eastbourne and Barley Mow, as well as those we have used so successfully before.  Entries will open on the BRCA website around the end of August.

Classes for this year will be 13.5 Stock on Saturday, and Modified on Sunday.  The Modified class will be for motors with a 6.5T lower limit.  Also on Sunday there will be a 13.5 Sports class.  All classes will use zero-timing (blinky) speed controllers from the list current at the date of each event.  The National Championship will be for two classes – Stock and Modified – with a separate award for the 13.5 class on Sunday.  

A full set of rules will be published soon.  The main change to note is that rollover masts are now optional.  If you wish to run one the dimensions will be as they were for last season and if you don’t then… you don’t have to!  All motors and batteries must be from the BRCA Homologation lists in force at the date of each event.

Here are the dates:

October 22nd / 23rd – Eastbourne
November 19th / 20th – MB Models - Leeds
December 10th / 11th – Tamworth
January 21st / 22nd – Barley Mow – South Shields, Tyne & Wear
February 18th / 19th – Swifts – Killamarsh, Yorkshire
March 25th / 26th – Chesterfield

We look forward to welcoming you all to our races and hope you will enjoy your day as well as the thriving social scene on Saturday night.

Thank you to Alan Hubber, our Secretary, whose hard work has resulted in a full calendar, and to all the clubs who applied and worked with Alan to get us this season’s National events.
