BRCA Membership

Information about your BRCA Membership to race at NIMCC

The NIMCC is proudly affiliated with the British Radio Car Association (BRCA). This affiliation ensures a safe and organized racing environment for all our members.

BRCA Membership: Your Key to Racing

  • Insurance: BRCA membership provides crucial third-party liability insurance. This protects you and others in case of an accident during a BRCA sanctioned event, including National and Regional Series races.
  • Eligibility: A valid BRCA membership is required to participate in any official races held at our club or in any BRCA affiliated series.
  • Membership Period: BRCA memberships run on a calendar year basis, from January 1st to December 31st.

BRCA Non-Racing Membership

The BRCA also offers a Non-Racing Membership for individuals who are not participating in races but still want to be involved in the club. This is ideal for:

  • Parents of Racers: Providing support and assistance trackside.
  • Pit Crew: Helping racers with car maintenance and adjustments during races.

Important Note: A BRCA Non-Racing Membership does NOT entitle you to race or drive RC cars at official events. However, it does provide you with third-party liability insurance while participating in non-racing activities at the club.

New Racers: Get Started with Us!

We understand that getting started in radio-controlled car racing is exciting! To help new racers experience the thrill of competition before committing to membership, the BRCA offers a grace period.

First 3 Meetings: New racers are welcome to participate in their first three club race meetings without requiring BRCA membership. This allows you to try out racing, get a feel for the club atmosphere, and see if it’s something you enjoy.

Important Note: The grace period is a one-time offer. After your initial three races, a valid BRCA membership will be mandatory to continue competing at our club or in BRCA sanctioned events, and membership will be valid for the remainder of the calendar year.
