At SDRCC we race the following classes:
Spec Class - 1/10th Touring Car
If you are looking to start or return to touring car racing this is an ideal class for you. This class is designed to be affordable while also creating competitive racing on the track.

Open Modified - 1/10th Touring Car
This class is for the experienced racer due to no limits on motor sizes which creates very fast racing with speeds over 60mph on our straight.

Offroad - 1/10th Buggy
2wd & 4wd buggies are raced in separate classes with 4wd being the most popular at SDRCC. This class is raced on the tracks which are built for each round on the grass area, with various jumps, a table top and other obstacles. Further information on Offroad can be found here.
1:10th Buggy Chassis 4wd or 2wd; Any BRCA Approved Motor
Mini - FWD
The Mini class offers racers a far more affordable and less complicated form of racing, as all the cars are based on the same M0 Tamiya front wheel drive chassis. There are a wide range of body shells available for this class such as the classic 60’s Mini, Suzuki Swift, BMW Mini and the new Fiat 500, all of which add a great deal of variety to the track. Further information on minis can be found here.
If you are looking to start or return to racing the best way to find out what to purchase and which class is for you is to visit the track when a club round is on, where other racers are always more than willing to answer any questions and provide advice on what equipment to buy.
