RC Documentary

It might be on-road racing - but this 40min documentary is a great insight into all RC racing. Harley, who is featured in this film is a regular on our 10th track - she is as super quick off-road as she is on-road!

King of Clubs Documentary

BRCA Juniors and Veterans National

HNMC hosted the BRCA Juniors and Veterans National on 9th and 10th July using our 1/10th Electric track. We had great weather with some fantastic racing over the weekend. Lots of members took part in the event in both 2wd aand 4wd.


RC racing is not only a fun and exciting hobby; it can give racers great insight into Motorsport in general. Lewis Hamilton started racing with RC buggys at our club while more recently avid 1/12th racer Mark Stiles moved into F1. Mark now works at Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team as a Composite and Mechanical Design Engineer. Mark describes RC racing as Motorsport in miniature with so many transferrable skills - car architecture, terminology, vehicle dynamics and car setup knowledge. Knowing how components work and how they affect the car is very important. Plus you're in a competitive environment, dealing with pressure, collaborating with others; all in a social setting. Our hobby is therefors very good for personal development and if you want to work in the motor racing industry - invaluable.
