There have been some small but important changes to the series for this season, but I wont spoil it all yet as the website is about to go live any day now. What I can reveal though is what is on offer from this great series, so if your still on the fence as to whether you will bite the bullet and come join us, have a look at the list below:

Historically this RC racing has created many racing widows sat at home on a Sunday, however I can see a revolution on the horizon, personally my family have been coming with me since the start so I can vouch for the family friendliness of this hobby after being involved for nearly 3yrs. I have seen a few others starting to bring the kids and I would like to see this extended to wives/partners too. This season my 7yr old son Lewis will also take part in the series and he is already talking about the possibility of earning trophies so it has already given him something to look forward to and given him a goal to achieve.
The series is not yet a BRCA recognised series, however this has not stopped us from getting some fantastic support from some of the biggest names in the UK RC scene, for this year we have long standing series sponsors XFACTORY UK, Durango, HPI back on board and new for 2016 are Schumacher, CML Distribution, RPRC Distribution and last but by no means least Inside Line Racing !! I mean WOW, that's like a who's who of RC suppliers right there, and in doing so we have support for just about every brand of RC Short Course Truck on the planet. This years Raffle is going to be awesome :)
