Following from the BRCA 1/12th Circuit site until updated locally:
Once upon a time, there were only two main
classes of racing; 1:8 scale in the summer and 1:12 scale
in the winter. Of course times have moved on and new
classes have been born. The fact still remains, that once
you can master the art of high speed cornering and
throttle control on a small tight track, you can drive
anything in the R/C world.
We always welcome new racers to our chosen class of racing. We see the frustration and heartache, as they try their best to learn the art, and that’s in the bar alone. That brings a smile to us all as we remember what we went through in our early days.
One advantage of the 1:12 section is that we only race indoors on carpet and unlike most clubs who only race during those winter months, we race all year round.
