Welcome to SMRCCC
Firstly welcome to SMRCCC,
The aim of the club is to provide a friendly and safe place to compete with other RC car enthusiasts in a controlled racing environment. The club is dedicated to race 1/12th electric model racing cars. Club race meetings are held Sunday mornings from 8am to 1pm, indoors.
During each meeting racers take part in qualifying heats and a final each lasting for 5 minutes. Each driver is matched with drivers of similar ability. Transponder units are fitted to each car and as the car passes under a bridge the drivers lap times are counted automatically by the race computer. A printout of lap times and race results are provided at the end of each race and qualifying round.
Up to 8 driver’s race against the clock and each other in the qualifying heats to achieve the best grid position for the final race. There can be anything up to four finals towards the end of the day listed as ‘A final’ the cars achieving the most laps, to the ‘D’ Final the car achieving the least amount of laps. No matter where you end up you will be racing with other drivers of the same ability and the racing is as fast and exciting.
There is no age limit to racers, if you can drive an RC car (however badly) you can race with us!
Championship points are given to members for final race positions. These points accumulate over a season championship period with the best counting towards the driver’s championship. Driver Championship trophies are awarded for the top drivers in both Senior and junior classes.
