So what do we race at Bracknell? Last updated Sept 2018

From 2015, we'll be racing GT12 cars at Bracknell


You'll find brief description of the GT12 class below:


General racing arrangements:

We run three 5 minute heats, followed by a single final

  • Your positon for the finals are based on (your total laps from) your best two heats results.

LiPos or NiMH/NiCd batteries are allowed, but all LiPo charging must be carried out in a LiPo sack, on a non-flammable tile, using a LiPo-compatible charger.

  • Anyone charging LiPo's beyond the Manufacturers suggested C rating will be asked to leave (1C is the expected norm)

Tyre Additive is needed, but must be on the BRCA approved list.  Current Driver-preference in "Spider Blue"


Lap Timing

We use a bbkRC system for lap timing and hand out  (analogue) transponders to each racer for the night.  Please remember to hand them back before you leave!!

These are powered transponders so you will need a spare socket on your receiver to power it.  We supply velcro if needed to allow you to fix the transponder into your chassis.



Heats and Finals

We will generally run 3 Heats and a single final.

Best 2 heats are summed to define the Finals rankings.

All races are 5 mins duration.

We occasionally run 3 Heats and 2 finals if its a quiet night, but only the first final will count for champsionship points.  The 2nd final would generally be run as a reversed grid - just to make it more fun...


GT12 Class:

Any 1S/4cell GT12 chassis is allowed, using BRCA GT12 regs as a guide, although the only regulations we strictly apply for Championship Points are:

  • Minimum weight limit of 950g, all up race-weight including transponder.

  • "Blinky" esc timing only.

  • We assume 13.5T motors, no lower turn motors allowed. 17.5T is acceptable.

We try to run with a maximum of five or six GT12 cars per heat/final
