The BRCA Event team were pleased to be able to join with the rest of the Association at the Centre:MK over the weekend of the 15th-17th January. It proved to be a fantastic opportunity to showcase our public ‘Arrive & Drive’ track directly alongside the main race track – showcasing the difference in speed - something the public seemed to really enjoy.

We were excited to be able to invite local schools to get involved in an educational challenge on the Friday. The teams undertook a number of activities revolving around STEM subjects and culminating in the construction of a radio controlled car. After achieving approval from scrutineering the teams got to try out their skills on the Arrive & Drive race track – complete with a formation grid and F1 style starting lights. The visiting schools also enjoyed the chance to see ‘behind the scenes’ in the pit area and on the rostrum for the main weekend Reedy International Race.

Saturday and Sunday saw the Event team return to usual duties exhibiting different classes of racing, talking to the visitors to our stand and playing host to members of the public all keen to try out RC racing for themselves. The novelty factor was being located alongside the main race track thereby enabling the viewing public the chance to see just how fast a leading RC car can go! With a continual queue in operation we saw approx 300 visitors over the 2 days all excited to try out RC racing – many for the first time.

A competition was run throughout the weekend offering one lucky person the chance to win a Schumacher GT12 race car kit for themselves. The winner was Nathan Eldridge from Milton Keynes – Well done Nathan!
