When and Prices

 

Racing takes place on Monday evenings from around 7:30pm.

The Centre opens around 6:45 for track building and car fettling etc.  Driver booking in is at 7:15, and racing gets underway about 7:30.

Depending on the number of drivers, we usually race 3 rounds of heats, with a short break after round 2.

Finals are run with driver placings based on their best 2 heat scores.

Racing typically finishes around 10:30

 

Race Dates – Spring and Autumn

We generally race every Monday evening from January to June, and September to December.  We do not race on Bank Holiday Mondays, or if the Centre is booked for special occasions, eg Christmas parties.

Two Championships run during the year, in the Spring and Autumn.  Your best 9 from the 12 rounds count towards your final championship position.  Each driver is only elligble for one award per annum, meaning your lowest position is rejected, and re-allocated to the next driver etc.  This might sound a bit complicated and confusing, but the end result is that pretty much every driver gets an award for the year.

 

Prize-giving is at the last meeting in December

 

Race Dates – Summer

We race weekly in June, roughly once a fortnight during July and not at all in August,  since turn-outs are much lower.  Racing is a more casual affair with no championship points being awarded - we do however keep track of your performance in a league-style format, with a small prize awarded for the top driver during December prize-giving.

 

Prices

BRCC membership will cost £8, for the calendar year.  Newcomers joining part-way through the year may be offered a pro rata reduction, eg £4 for joining in the summer.

All members also have to join the BRCA, which is currently £17 per annum, covering January to December.  Unfortunately there are no reductions in this fee for joining later in the year.

Racing fees are £3 per night for BRCC members, and £5 per night for non-members. We don’t differentiate between older and younger members – we all race together, so there is no “junior” membership rate.
