1:10 and 1:12 Electric RC Car Racing in South Essex
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic ordinary SRCCC race meetings as described here on our website are currently suspended.
From Sunday 7th June limited pre-booked track-time is available to members at the outdoor circuits as described here:
Resumption of Outdoor Circuit Use
We believe the arrangements put in place are consistent with easing of lockdown by the government and in line with guidance from the BRCA. They will be kept under review.
Sadly indoor racing remains fully suspended for the time being.

Drivers of all experience levels are warmly welcomed by the club. If you are new to the hobby there is no race fee to pay and no membership requirements for your first few meetings. After that modest race fees apply and BRCA membership is mandatory. Joining SRCCC is optional but members enjoy reduced race fees. Full details on the Membership and Race Fees page.
If you want to get started and aren’t sure where to begin then drop in at any of our race meetings and chat to the drivers there. You can see the classes we run in action and get tips on the best options to match your interestes, experience and budget. Alternatively, contact us or join the club Facebook group.

Unfortunately the outdoor tracks are on a shared site and are only available for use during organised club race meetings. The indoor carpet track is laid temporarily in the Deane’s Centre sports hall for each indoor meeting and cleared away at the end.
All abilities of driver are welcome to race at club meetings and there is normally the opportunity for practice as well as the timed qualifiers and finals.
Because our outdoor tracks are on a shared site in a residential neighbourhood we are not permitted to run nitro cars
This size, layout and construction of our tracks are not suitable for 1:8th scale or larger vehicles.
