Default SPEED. Urban RC Indoor Masters 2019 (17 - 18 Aug)



URBAN RC is pleased to announce details of our next exciting event.

SPEED. Urban RC Indoor Masters 2019

This will be a 2-day extravaganza to be held at [email protected] on 17 – 18 Aug, 2019.

For the first time in Singapore, an R/C event will feature 2 R/C tracks and 3 different R/C competitions. It will be a wonderful opportunity to showcase our hobby/sport to a wider audience.

For onroad racers, the on-going Urban Touring Series (UTS) will move offsite for the first time with Round 5 to held on the indoor carpet surface. Apart from the usual UTS classes of TC 17.5T blinky and Formula 21.5T blinky, 2 special classes will be run, namely the Mini Class and Truck Class.

For offroad racers, the first ever Urban Carpet Buggy Masters will feature the 2WD and 4WD open classes.

Drifters will not be left out as we are joining forces with the drift community to host Round 1 of the 2019 Ladder to TDC Singapore, with the Open RWD and Battle Royale being the feature classes.

And if that is not enough, a public “Give-it-a-Go” track will also be setup to provide those who are new to the hobby with the chance to run hobby-grade radio control cars free of charge.

Further to the announcement that the tyres for the offroad classes will be "Open Rubber Tyre", we would like to clarify that, while we remain open to racers using their own choice of tyres, the tyres used should generally avoid those tyres that could potentially damage the carpet racing surface (eg tyres with hard sharp spikes). Urban RC reserves the right to exclude tyres that damage the carpet surface from being used. If you are unsure, please check directly with Urban RC. Thanks for your understanding.
