Cut down to the base form the function of the British Radio Car Association is the following four objects that define us.

(a) To promote the construction and racing of radio-controlled cars.
(b) To facilitate the exchange of information and ideas relating to the sport.
(c) To set rules and standards for construction and racing.
(d) To encourage National and International competition within a co-ordinated calendar.

The rest of the Handbook and guidelines are our best effort to facilitate these objects with fairness and objectivity without loosing sight of the fact that we are enjoying the participation in one way or another.
