ABOUT TORCH

Titchfield Off Road Club Hants is a Radio Controlled model car racing club located between Southampton and Portsmouth on the south coast of England. Rather confusingly the club isn’t based in Titchfield any more, but it was in the dim and distant past, and has kept the name to honour its roots. A map and directions to our track can be found by following the menu item above.We are a long established club with over 30 years experience of running and organising race meetings, from relaxed Sunday morning club meetings run up to National level competitions.

Radio controlled car racing is a great hobby for any age. We have members from under 10 to over 60 and a number of dads and sons racing together as size or age have very little influence on your ability to compete. At TORCH we are very fortunate to have a wide spread of experience and ability and this means not only will you generally find someone on a similar pace to race against but there is a wealth of knowledge and experience to help beginners with set up or technical problems.The cars we race are 1/10th scale electric powered cars and we run classes for both 2WD and 4WD buggies. Trucks (electric 1/10th scale) are welcome at the club but we have very few regular entrants of them so you will be placed in the most appropriate 2WD/4WD heat. If enough trucks did turn up we would be pleased to put on a heat for them. Touring/circuit cars will not work on our track due to the jumps and off-road nature of it. We do not race or allow petrol/nitro powered cars on the track due to noise considerations with our neighbours.</p>
