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.

The inaugural Reedy 1/12 Race of Champions took place in Milton Keynes, UK last weekend. The event was hosted by the British Radio Car Association and was the centrepiece attraction for members of the general public at one of the largest shopping centres in the UK. In addition to the Reedy Race, a Model Motorsport Exhibition was hosted and UK-based RC manufacturers and retailers were present to display, demonstrate and sell their products. The BRCA also set up a small track with GT12 cars to enable the public to sample RC for the first time.

The 2015/16 1/12th National Series headed to Crewe for round 2 of the season. This is the last time that the Crewe national will be held in the Oakley Centre as in the coming days the building will no longer be standing. This venue first held a national in the early 90’s and we hope to see Crewe on the national calendar again soon.

Every year at its AGM, each section of the BRCA recognises one of its drivers, officials or other associated figures with a section award.

Section awards are usually given to individuals who have gone the extra mile for the section on a specific occasion or over a period of time.
