For beginners with little experience we suggest you start with 1300 Stox.
These are the most forgiving formula and easiest to drive but are also competetive.
Contact is allowed in this class so crashing is common but with the big bumpers damage is kept to a minimum.

6a) chassis must not have any extra holes drilled or added to allow extra ‘flex’ in the chassis component and that the chassis must be a solid design not slotted to achieve extra movement.
7) Damper tubes are not allowed. Oil filled shocks and dampers are not allowed.
8) Front suspension may be independent provided that the suspension design does not have any pivot, rod or other mechanism that alters the wheel camber or castor in roll relative to the chassis during its full travel. and must use the standard two bolt fixing, and not modified/elongated.
8b) Ride height/castor can be adjusted with shims/washers. Shims and washers must be made from a solid substance to be a consistent thickness start to finish and rigid. No wedge-shaped spacers or ‘o’-rings are to be used on any chassis mounting points.
9) Rolling element (ball) bearings are allowed on the front and rear axles.

20) Minimum ride height of 3mm.
21) All added weights must be bolted to the chassis with a nut and bolt.
22) All cars must be commercially available to buy. Anyone wishing to manufacture a car must go through the process of test and development at their regular club with the clubs agreement. If they wish to then race the car they must be able to make units available to purchase by other racers. It must comply to the current construction regulations if being sold to race. It must be of a comparable price to those being sold by other manufacturers and not overly priced to limit availability. Anyone wishing to develop or modify a car that does not comply with current construction regulations has to do that test and development at their local club with their agreement, any changes to the construction rules that allow new designs to race would need to be approved at the BRCA AGM following the correct procedure.
