BRCA R6 RHR – Preview

How do you preview and build excitement for an event when everyone already knows the track is one of the best in country, that the facilities fulfil every racer’s needs, that nobody will be able to find fault in the level of organisation and the BRCA’s 50th birthday bash is happening on the Saturday night?

Well, maybe we don’t have to as Round 6 of the 2022 BRCA 1/10th Offroad Championship at Robin Hood Raceway is set to be one of the best of the year already and doesn’t need any extra hype.

James Halliwell and his hard working crew have already hosted a very successful EFRA European Championships this year, so the BRCA event must be a doddle for them. The Euros, of course won by home-grown Tommy Hall (2wd) and Dane, Marcus Kaerup (4wd), was a tough one for many and although Tommy has to be the favourite for the 2wd National based on recent performances. There will be plenty of drivers looking to rebalance the books after underperforming at the Euros.

BRCA declaring the half century…..

To celebrate 50 years of the BRCA on the Saturday night we will be providing some food and refreshments. Complimentary Pulled pork or Jack fruit vegetarian option, with potatoes, salad/veg and a free soft drink from 6.30pm.

There will be a big marquee (same as euros) as well as the pitting barn – so the celebration is going ahead no matter what the weather. Hoping for a well attended evening talking about old times and new in a relaxed and fun atmosphere – everybody welcome.



There are lots of quiet people track-side at RC race meetings across the world, but people are not so quiet behind their keyboards. The AGM gives every member the chance to turn their keyboard thoughts into proposals for possible inclusion into the rules and regulations for 2023. Here is your chance….

Date: Sunday 30th October 2022 at a time to be confirmed – see www.brca.org
Location: Bourneville College, 1 Longbridge Lane, Longbridge, B31 2AJ


The 2022 Championships….

It’s always more exciting when the championship battles go the final round, but unfortunately – or fortunately if you are the winner – this year both titles were settled at round 5 in Torch. New dad, Neil Cragg secured his 26th title taking 2wd and Michal Orlowski took 4wd on his first attempt.

The battle for second in the 2wd championship is between Michal Orlowski and Tommy Hall. Tommy needing a TQ and win (131 points) with Orlowski not scoring more than 127 (4th). A good day for Lee Martin could even see Tommy relegated to fourth.

The battle for the remaining 4wd podium positions is way more complex. Orlowski has the title already, but Lee Martin, Neil Cragg, and Paul Crompton are all close enough on points that they could finish in any order. Crompton with a 122 points to possibly discard has the best cards in this game of fast moving poker.
