The Schumacher BTCC is a race series for
radio-controlled cars. It is organised by Schumacher Racing Productsin the UK and run to BRCA rules. The series takes place on 8 different tracks all over the UK, however it is not to be confused with the BRCANational Championship series.
The championship first started by Schumacher in 1995 solely as a modified touring car support class to the
BRCAPro-10 circuit championship, but within a couple of years, the entries for the touring cars surpassed the Pro-10's, and Schumacher organnised a separate meeting to cater for everyone.
It features four classes: "Stock 27t", "Superstock 19t" and "Modified & Brushless" for any make of Touring Car. 2006 featured a class for its GTRe on road racer, a 3 speed electric circuit car. This class took over from Schumacher's previous Big 6 Lotus class, but was dropped early in 2007 due to lack of entrants.
Each BTCC round features 3 qualifying heats and 2 Finals, with the best 10 final results counting to each drivers score. The qualifying tames place under usual FTD (Fastest Time of the Day) rules, with A-Z Finals. The top 3 in each final get a trophy. These are supplied by the host club, but Schumacher fund end-of-season trophies to the top three overall drivers in each class, and a special 'Cecil Schumacher Trophy', to the top Modified driver, in recognition of the origin of the championship. Uniquely, Schumacher provide a range of prizes for an end-of-meeting raffle, in which any entrant has an equal chance of winning. The Series uses
Control Tyres, which are the Sorex 28R, 32R or 36R, each pre-glued with a Sorex insert and Rev-Lite wheel. For the first time, 2006 allowed the use of Tyre Warmers.
