Hi all

thanks in advance

The BRCA website lists the club's it has registered, but these will generally be race clubs, maybe worth a visit to see if they have family nights or RWYB open nights.

If you want to run at any club, you'll need brca membership (although I think you can run 3 visits on a track before it's mandatory). Membership is £20 for the year (2019 - not 12 months) and is basically 3rd party insurance (on and off the track)

The one I'm wanting to goto - Tamiya Junkies, which is, fairly close, to you, is at Robin hood Raceway in Yorkshire, and the event listed below your post! 👍

Thank you Wooders I had a look at BRCA and couldn't  find any clubs that seem to use Tamiya cars. The Tamiya Junkies sounds good but is too far to go :( 

I did wonder about organising a meet in Leicester but don't know how to organise one.

None of the club's list what make of car they run (none i can find anyway), only the type, off road / on road , 10th scale etc, even Robin hood Raceway doesn't, and that's where the Tamiya Junkies run! 

I'd pop along to the one at Hinckley (if thats the closest?) Have a chat with people there. If you turned up at the Glasgow club with a lunchbox and wanted to run, as long as it wasn't a championship night, you could run it! (Although we've a spare club car, so of we knew you were coming, could race that)

Again, speak to your local club, if it's a permanent track, you may be able to rent the venue for a day/night, if there's a few of you, it shouldn't be too expensive.

Another option is to get a few people together , meet at a local park, skatepark, bmx track and just have a laugh! 😁
