Welcome to

ABOUT

Broxtowe is a friendly and competitive electric car racing club based in the East Midlands.

 

The club started around 1980 (previously known as Ilkeston Model Car Club) and later become 'Broxtowe Model Car Club' when we moved to our first outdoor home at Hall Park, Eastwood.

 

We race electric model cars at 1:10 and 1:12 th scale at our multipurpose venue in Hall Park and on our carpet track in the Barber Sports Hall, Greasley.
