1/12th  Oval

Welcome to the F2 Stock Cars section.

You will find F2 stockcar clubs all across the UK, from Scotland right down south to Cornwall. Each club offers their own championships but the BRCA 1/12th F2 stock car class also organise a national series of championships, including the English champion, National points champion, European champion and the world champion.

We also like to encourage our juniors, we also run the junior championships along side the big ones. Our current junior world champion is just 13 years old.

The F2 stock cars have many different manufacturers. Our cars are all widely available. Either in kit form from an online store such as Kamtec or track side from a builder/racer at your local track. F2 stock cars use a brushed motor, electronic speed controller and a 4 cell 4.8v NIMH battery. Plenty of power output making for some fast and close racing on track all year round.

If you need any further information, help or advise on our F2 stock car section, please do not hesitate to get in touch. .The cars themselves are 1/12th scale and are a version of the full size Brisca f2 stockcars. Powered by 4 cell NIMH batteries and a brushed 21 turn motor with an electronic speed controller. Racing over 5 minute heats. Racing is very close and competitive with great banter and atmosphere in the pit area.

The 2019 world championship final was won by Morgan Williams. The national points championship was won by Rob Whalley. Noah Bailey won the Junior National Points and Junior World Championship. Making that two years in a row for the young man who is also my son. Yes, I am a very proud mum. He first won the junior world championship at the age of 10 years and 16 days old. So never think your too young. We accept anyone of any age, as long as your thumbs work then come and join in. Timothy Bailey won the English championship with George Taylor winning the junior English Championship.

As 2020 was such a strange year, and we could not do much indoor racing, we decided as a collective that all 2019 champions retain their titles for 2020.

The 2020 European champion is Morgan Williams and the junior European is Noah Bailey. In 2021 due to Covid restrictions we couldn’t run a full national calender, so we decided to just concentrate on getting back on track and the 2019 champions kept their trophies for another year.

In 2022 we’ll be taking the f2s on tour all over the UK again. We’ve had some new oval clubs open up over the last 18 months so well be giving those their first taste of how National f2s run.

Schumacher will be sponsoring the Golden Helmet championship for 2022.

We welcome everyone, no matter your age or gender. You’re all welcome to come and have a go. To find your local track/club, take a look through the book or pop on to the BRCA website.

Cars

All the cars are a reasonable representation of the full size Brisca F2 stock cars being raced on Ovals around the country. 

Type of Track

These cars are raced indoors on a carpeted Oval Track. There are a numerous Oval clubs up and down the country, most of which can be found in the back of this booklet, and/or on the BRCA web site.

There is no standard size of track, some are quite small, while others are quite large in comparison, this adds to fun of adjusting your driving skill to match the track conditions, just as in full size racing.

Racing

Most clubs race on an evening all year round , with heats of upto 8 cars racing for 5 minutes., with 3 or 4 rounds and a final. This is full contact racing, and it isn’t necessary to be the fastest, but be skilful in how you handle or avoid the hits that bring the success.

The BRCA National Series runs from January through to September mainly on weekends

At the Nationals there are trophies at each meeting and points for the end of season trophies for the best drivers 

All ages and abilities are catered for and most clubs and venues have disables access. We hold the World Championships and European Championships on alternate years.

Other

One thing that is apparent at stock car meetings, be it National or Club events, is everybody is having fun. There is a serious side to the sport, winning trophies, points and the World Championships, but the main ethos is having fun. 

You will not break the bank if you wish to take up this form of radio controlled car racing, for as little as around

£200 you could be on the track racing. The best way to find out about these is to visit one of the local clubs that race them
