Club Rules

Send It.

Auckland Indoor Radio Control Car Club is affiliated to the New Zealand Radio Control Association (NZRCA) and as part of our affiliation we run our car classes to the NZRCA rule book. All cars must comply with the rules. You can find the NZRCA rule books here.

These rules are created by every club and are standardized across the country. By running to NZRCA rules means that our members know they can take their cars to any other meeting nationwide and their cars will be legal.

In addition to class rules, Auckland Indoor Radio Control Car Club also has general rules which apply all Meeting held by the Club.

The following class rules cover the main criteria a race vehicle must meet for it to be deemed as legal for receiving results and points at Auckland Indoor Radio Control Car Club events. These should be treated as advisory only as each car and driver must meet all of the NZRCA rules found in the latest NZRCA rule book. These are the points that are used on a regular basis for scruiteneering purposes.

If you have any questions regarding the info below, please ask to speak to a committee member on a Meeting Night or contact us here.
