Default BRCA ( UK) new rules/classes

Does any one know what the classes are and where it all going???????

In my view we need to slow club racing down and make it kinder on equipment?

for UK nationals, it will remain as;

Unlimited mod / lipo
&
10.5 / lipo

still remaining as 5, 2 day nationals, at the same venues as last year;
Mendip
Cotswolds
Aldershot
Halifax
West London
(not sure which order they will be in)

also there is the view to running a "clubmans" national series
with 13.5 and 17.5 with no timing (boost/turbo/whatever)
running 1 day nationals.
unsure about venues and dates etc.

If you ask any BRCA official about club racing they will make it very clear that they do not make classes for club racing, they make them for their own sanctioned national racing.

If clubs want to slow things down, they need to make their own decision on that.

I race at a couple of small-ish indoor clubs and 13.5 timed is definitely too fast. 13.5 untimed is just about OK. 17.5 timed does similar laptimes to 13.5 untimed but still looks a bit tasty on the straights.

BRCA is a good insurance policy but following the rule book verbatim is a mistake at club level.

The 'no timing' bit was removed before it was passed to be looked into, but it would be 13.5 and 17.5

13.5 instead of 10.5 for BRCA failed.

Everything has basically remained the same.

Thanks its good to know, but I always think that clubs are in a difficult position, If they slow things down to much drivers that go to big races whilst novices need to learn how to handle a car before the extra speed.

With a lots of clubs struggling to make up numbers it may difficult to split classes- my view would be 13.5 timed and silver can, but as you say BRCA does not make classes at club level.

Extremely good out of the box, use the settings suggested in the excellent instructions, get the 2 in 1 program box as well, it is easier to program it.

Size is small and weight low, most of the top drivers at my club are using this esc.
