It has been a fantastic weekend for Schumacher's Michal Orlowski at the British Grand Prix in Milton Keynes.

Image title
The race held in the Centre MK shopping complex was a fantastic showcase for our hobby and even better as Michal dominated the event. Michal took TQ and won both 2WD and 4WD with his Schumacher CAT L1R and Cougar LD2 buggies.

Image title
In 2WD we had 4 Cougar LD2's in the A main with Daniel Kobbevik 5th, Broc Champlin 6th and Lee Martin 10th.

2WD Result

10 LEE MARTIN - Cougar LD2

Image title
In 4WD we had 3 new CAT L1R's in the final, Broc just unlucky not to make the podium in 4th, and Daniel 6th. Some fine results in such a packed field.

4WD Result


Congratulations to the whole team on an excellent set of results.

Champlin and Orlowski take top honours at round 3 of the EOS in Daun!

This past weekend saw the 2022/23 series finale at Daun in Germany. There was a huge entry for this event, one of the biggest ever for the EOS. This also meant the competition was huge too.
Schumacher's USA star Broc Champlin flew in to make his EOS debut, he soon showed what a class act he is as he dominated proceedings in the 2wd class.
Broc took TQ in all 3 qualifying rounds to line up on pole position for the 3-leg A mains. Second on the grid was Micha Widmaier and third on the grid was Lee Martin.
There was some brilliant close racing in the mains, Broc managed to take the win in legs 1 and 2 so sealed the victory without needing to race in leg 3.

Here are the top 10 positions after all 3 legs of the A finals in 2wd:

1 Broc Champlin - Schumacher
2 Marcus Kaerup
3 Micha Widmaier
4 Alexander Landen
5 Michal Orlowski - Schumacher
6 Lee Martin - Schumacher
7 Martin Bayer
8 Daniel Kobbevik - Schumacher
9 Jorn Neumann
10 Tommy Hall

Then on to the 4wd action, Michal Orlowski was on form in this class and as Broc did in 2wd previously, Orlowski took TQ in all 3 rounds to line up on pole position for the 3-leg A mains.
Second on the grid was Bartosz Zalewski and third on the grid was Broc Champlin.
Some superb close racing followed in all 3 legs of the finals between most drivers. However Orlowski had things under control out front and took victory in legs 1 and 2,
therefore he was just a spectator for leg 3 having wrapped up the win. Michal and Broc taking a 1-2 and another superb result for the new Schumacher CAT L1R.

Here are the top 10 positions after all 3 legs of the finals in 4wd:

1 Michal Orlowski - Schumacher

The Schumacher Eclipse cars are the current reigning 1/12th scale IFMAR World and EFRA European Champions in both modified and stock classes. 

The New Eclipse 5 features a extensive list of refinements, making it even faster and better handling.


The Eclipse 5 is the ultimate professional LMP12 racing chassis kit. The choice of champions!


NEW - Alloy chassis design with a much shorter overall length.  This allows for reduced chassis scrubbing along with a significant weight reduction from beyond both front and rear axles.  These benefits allow the car to enter a corner more effortlessly and when in the corner, rotation is achieved more freely.  

NEW - Upgraded left and right rear hex wheel clamps to prevent any wheel wobble issues.  Now perfectly true running wheels with our unique single nut rear wheels/solid axle!

NEW - Servo mounting has been improved, resulting in direct mounting for the Sanwa micro range of servos such as the PGS-HR and SRG-HR.  Direct and easy alignment onto the centre of the car.  In doing this the chassis flexibility characteristics have been vastly improved, for performance and strength, by removing the large, off centre transverse slots previously used.  All other brands of servo still can be used with the ultra-lightweight floating servo mount, included.

NEW - Lightweight and flexible 3D printed rubber bumper, offering perfect body shell protection.  Compared to the previous foam bumper, it is also very durable and long lasting.

NEW - Black aluminium steering turnbuckles now included.  Stealth and lighter weight. 

NEW - Updated top decks design, further reducing the polar moment of inertia.  They now secure at the front within the wheelbase.


NEW - The front lower beam has been improved, mounting in line with the front axle, and further reducing this forward weight, allowing for the reduced chassis length.  The new beam makes use of super easy, slide in, speed secret ride height spacers. 0.5mm U7920 and 0.75mm U7921.
NEW - Independent and lightweight front bumper mount makes front end assembly far easier.  The front bumper can now be removed with only 2 screws.
NEW - Moulded lighter weight front hub carrier design with much improved suspension action and damping characteristics.  Un-sprung mass has also been reduced.
NEW - Tweak free and easy LiPo mounting using new lighter weight O-ring fixing.
NEW - Interchangeable front LiPo position stops with 4 equally spaced settings included. 


NEW - Optional 1.0° camber strap option available.  1.5° camber is included in the kit for maximum steering and lap time in most conditions.
NEW - Pod offset has been refined to achieve the perfect pod balance with a wider range of modern motors.
NEW - Lightweight pod carbon parts for lower centre of gravity and overall car weight.
NEW - Underside Variable Chassis chamfers, offering improved ground clearance, smoother scrubbing and better clearance to curbs or other corner markers.  


Not forgetting all the usual features that have made the Eclipse IFMAR World and EFRA European Champion.

- Range of optional colour coded front springs.
- Big Bore side and centre dampers offering long lasting damping. They also give great damping oil retention (less frequent maintenance required) and a compact and central design. Damper geometry changes have improved damping characteristics.
- Lightweight pod assembly for smoother, more predictable drivability and bump handling.  Strengthened for tweak prevention. 
- Lightweight Low Centre of Gravity CNC Alloy Motor Mounts.
- Rear ride height adjusters, easier adjustment and 0.25mm height increments.

Schumacher's Michal Orlowski has been crowned the overall Modified Champion at the Florida Carpet Championships 2022. Held at Beachline Raceway, Florida USA over the weekend, the indoor carpet event attracted a star line up of 1:10th Off Road drivers including many Europeans.

2WD qualifying would see a different driver top each of the three qualifiers, topping the final Q3 would be enough for Michal with his Cougar LD2 to secure P2 on the grid with reigning World Champion Spencer Rivkin putting his AE 3rd having topped Q2 and Dakotah Phend taking Q1 to top the timesheets overall with TLR.

Image title
In 4WD, Phend was in dominant form taking all three heats. Behind, Rivkin secured second on the grid from the Schumacher's of Broc Champlin and Michal using prototype CAT 4WD's.

Image title
In the 2WD A-Main, the Top 3 would finish as they started with Phend getting the job done in A2 with his second straight win.
Image title
4WD however would see things go to A3. While Phend won A1 from Orlowski, it would be Champlin with the A2 win as Orlowski suffered a DNF and Phend finished third behind Schumacher's Daniel Kobbevik also running a prototype chassis. It now would be tough for Michal to make the top spot, however it was still all to play for in A3. It was Orlowski who came through from 4th on the grid for the leg win from Rivkin, Champlin and Phend.  Overall it was Michal 1st, Broc 2nd and Daniel a fine 5th, an awesome result.

Image title
Taking the overall 4WD win from team-mate Broc Champlin with Phend completing the podium, combined with his second overall in 2WD it was Michal who was crowned the overall Modified Champion of the 2022 Florida Carpet Championships.

Image title
Schumacher's Engineer Tris Neal picked up his transmitter for this one and made the stock A main in 4WD, a top result.
Image title
Congratulation to the whole Schumacher team for some awesome results stateside.

28 September 2022

Last weekend saw the finale of the BRCA national championship at the fabulous Halifax Track and it was an extremely competitive one for the On Road team.

With championships already decided for 13.5 and 17.5 motor classes, Modified was still open between Schumacher's Zak Smith and the hobbywing and Intellect powered car of Kyle Branson.  A win for Zak and would possibly secure the title with Kyle outside the top 2 and it would go right down to the last race!

-Following a struggle during the Saturday practice day, our modified championship protagonist came out the blocks fighting after some great teamwork overnight appeared to transform his car. His title rival Kyle took the TQ but Zak would line up P2, alongside him on the front row. Andy Murray placed his Mi8 in P3 after a strong run in the final qualifier. Jamie McDonagh and Jordan Norwood placed their Schumacher cars into the top 10, each for a third time this season to make it 4 Mi8’s in the Modified A final!

Image title
-In the stock 13.5T category, the championship was already settled, in Zak Finlay’s favor. This wouldn’t stop our guys battling it out for the round win in the final. Zak would take the top spot with James Hart lining up alongside him, after a round TQ in the final qualifier. Billy Fletcher and Mikey Mansell make it 3 cars in the A final, with Dani Young narrowly missing the top 10, in P11. A special mention goes to Gregg Allan for placing his Mi8 into the B final in P19.

Image title
-Stock 17.5T qualifying would see Darren Tickner the top spot but with strong qualifying from all of the Schumacher team, with 6 Cars lining up in positions 3,4,5,6,7 and 8! Special mentions in this class go to new team drivers Jamie Hall and Tom Foreman for joining the A final on their Schumacher team debut!


-Zak would win leg 1 after a great pass at turn 1, followed by a race long battle with Kyle, Andy and Harley. Leg’s 2 and 3 saw Kyle take p1 and with it the National title after a last leg decider, with Zak following him closely in both the final 2 races! Harley Eldridge completed the podium in p3. Jordan Norwood finished a brilliant P6 from the back of the grid!

-Stock 13.5 saw a clean sweep of wins for Zak Finlay, but he was pushed hard throughout by James finishing in P2 overall. Ricky Copsey finished P3 and stood back on the podium.
-In Stock 17.5, Alex Brocklebank moved up and onto the podium, tied on points with his team mate Andy Robson, in P4. Darren Tickner took a deserved win.

Image title
-Billy Fletcher took a clean sweep of round wins in 17.5t to become national champion on his first season with Schumacher! Alex Brocklebank, Chris Parrott and Andy Robson all finished the season with strong championship positions with P5, 6 and 7 respectively.

Image title
-In 13.5t James Hart solidified his P2 in the championship, with some crazy close racing with Zak.  Mickey Mansell and Jonathan Dronfield finishing in a fantastic P9 and P10 on their Schumacher TC team debut’s!

Image title
-P2 this weekend was enough for Zak to finish runner up in the modified national championship after a fantastic season, winning half the rounds he competed in! Schumacher Junior star Daniel Robins rounded out the season to finish a great P7, and Jordan Norwood and Jamie McDonagh, with strong final rounds elevating them to P9 and 10. Amazing results for both, well done!

Image title
Congratulations and thank you to the whole Schumacher Touring Car team for an amazing season all year long with many great results for us to be proud of!

Congratulations to all the national champions Billy, Zak and Kyle.

Bring on the winter where are top guys will be competing at big championships such at the MICC and EWS amoungst may other local series.

Halifax Set Up's can be found here.

Final congratulations go to the BRCA crew who stepped up the game year, challenging at times, but lots of effort looking like making some gains and good signs for the future of National touring cars in the UK.

The last week saw the IFMAR Worlds Championships in Gubbio Italy.

The week saw a successful set of results for our small team which included support from Andy Murray from the Schumacher factory.

Image title
In the IFMAR Formula World Cup class it was Schumacher’s Andreas Stiebler that would take the victory with his Icon 2. Sadly he could only make legs 1 and 2 of the finals due to having to rush off to catch his flight back home due to the rescheduled finals. However he managed to do enough in these 2 legs to become the Champion.

Image title
Adreas's car was powered by a Hobbywing G3 21.5T Motor, Hobbywing Speed Control, Sunpadow LiPo and Highest Servo.

Image title
IFMAR Formula World Cup Winner 2022 for Andreas and the Icon 2.

Andreas' Set up sheet can be found here.

Image title
In the premier Modified class Michal Orlowski, would lead the team with Mattia Collina and Pekko Iivonen would be looking for good results. Michal would qualify 10th in the A main and with 3 solid finals would claim 6th overall. Michal drove brilliant in all 3 legs and had some real good pace, a very good result with such talent on the drivers stand.

Image title
Michals Schumacher Mi8 was equipped with Hobbywing 4.5t G3 motor and XR10 Pro G2S ESC, Sunpadow 6500mAh HV Platin battery, PowerHD S15 servo and MR33 accessories.

Michal's Worlds set up can be seen here.

On the same day as the British team had strong performances at the BRCA National, Mattia Collina, Carlo Alberto Conti and Michal Orlowski would compete in the Italian AMSCI National with support from Andy Murray and Alessandro Giubbilei. The venue being Club 5 Colli Racetrack in Gubbio, host of the upcoming ISTC World championships.
The race took place after several days of testing and it would be Mattia Collina with an epic performance throughout that would take the pole position and victory after the 3 leg finals. Michal also showed very strong pace, but suffered some issues during the races and thus could not show his true potential this time out! Carlo qualified a strong 6th but also suffered some unfortunate luck during the finals.

Congratulations Mattia for this victory. Very impressive performance!

The BRCA 4WD Touring Car National Round 3 took place over the weekend and it was a strong performance from the team.

In the 17.5 class new recruit on the Mi8 Billy Fletcher took the TQ and a fine victory. Local legend Andy Robson was 2nd after some good finals, Alex Brocklebank, Chris Parrot and Ade Sully also made the main with the Mi8's making 5 cars in the A final.

In 13.5 James Hart and Zak Finlay had some epic battles for TQ and the win. In the end Zak came out in front with James having an unlucky last leg of the finals to bump him down to 3rd. Mikey Mansell had a strong performance in 6th with Jonny Dronfield 7th and Dani Young 9th, so again 4 cars in the main.

In the fastest modified class Zak Smith came home 4th, Dan Robins 6th, Chris Ashton 7th and Jordan Norwood 8th. 4 more Mi8's in the main.

Congratulations to the winners and the team, the next round is at the fast Mendip track on 23-24th July.

Round 3 of the BRCA 1/10th Off Road Nationals took place this weekend at Boughton Raceway.

Once again it was a very strong performance from the team. Michal Orlowski was across fighting it out at this event and he was able to qualify 2nd in 2WD and take victory in the 3 legged finals.

The hot conditions meant quite low traction and all the team did well to dial their cars in.

Ben Smith once again showed great maturity and speed to claim 5th, Josh Holdsworth 6th, Phil Sleigh 9th and Joseph Howson 10th in 2WD.
