The Large Scale Off Road (LSOR) of the BRCA is one of the newest sections and covers the largest scale of off road model vehicles on the market with BRCA affiliated clubs throughout the country.

Our national race series is open to any make of off road vehicle whether that is two or four wheel drive, 23, 26 or 30cc petrol powered. Brakes on our petrol powered models can be a single layshaft rear brake, hydraulic or air brakes front and rear which all help to stop the large scale cars which are capable of speeds in excess of 50mph from their two stroke petrol primed engines.

As a rule the top end kits are complete with everything apart from radio gear, engine and fuel. Ready to run kits are also available with everything apart from fuel making large scale off road racing available to all. All models can be modified as and when needed to the drivers specification.

The BRCA national series runs throughout the summer months normally from March until October with our drivers visiting all four corners of the country. When the national series is over the majority of the clubs then run interclub meetings over the winter months, giving you all year round off road racing.

Within the national series the BRCA run four classes, 2 wheel drive buggy, 4 wheel drive buggy, short course and open class with drivers competing for either National, Junior and  clubman titles. Our normal race format is to run three rounds of qualification heats to determine the days qualification positions. Either single or double sided finals are undertaken based upon the drivers qualification position and by the end of the day we have our class winners.

Whilst the national series drivers may be competitive we have one of the friendliest and helpful series around so why not come and join us?

Not only is large scale racing popular in the UK, with numbers increasing year on year but also within Europe & there are many opportunities to enter European race meetings.
