The BRCA (British Radio Car Association) are the governing body of the radio-controlled model motor racing hobby within Great Britain We have over 7,000 members who on any day of the week will be racing at one of the many model vehicle clubs around the country.
We race radio-controlled model cars, trucks and bikes; however, this isn’t as simple a statement as it might seem! We have over 13 different classes which run national championships who award annual UK titles within the association. They cater for racing vehicles from small electric powered ones that do about 30mph through to cars powered by 3.5cc internal combustion engines that do over 80mph and even those with 30cc petrol engines no matter if its indoor or outdoor we have a class for it.
The association provides a framework for not only a level platform of racing across the country but also for those wanting to form a club and provide a safe place for racing to occur at.
Our racing caters for people from all backgrounds and doesn’t discriminate on sex, age, or disability. Radio-controlled model motor racing does provide a challenging sporting environment where the skill required to drive and build the cars can be tested against other likeminded competitors.
Unlike our full-size counterparts there is no sitting in your racing vehicle and feeling the ride its all down to hand and eye coordination along with watching how your “race ride” handles the track which is challenging your co-ordination.
