About


The Armed Forces Race Challenge is organised by a committee of volunteers from all three Services, some veterans and some civilian guests.  AFRC is primarily to provide a motor racing community for Service personnel and veterans, but we also invite selected guests to compliment the competition.

2018 Season

The team at 750 Motor Club are taking the administration and arranging of our championship for 2018.

The championship will be contested over 4x race weekends, each consisting of 2x 18min + 1 lap rounds. Championship points will be awarded for each round (8 in total) with the best 6 rounds counting towards the overall championship. Class awards will be awarded to the aggregate time over the 2 rounds per event. In 2018 the engine power will be taken at the flywheel and the classes will be as follows (weight includes driver):

Class A – up to 300hp/tonne, Class B – up to 240hp/tonne, Class C – up to 180hp/tonne

History

Operating from 2006 to 2013 as the RAFMSA Race Challenge, the series was re-branded in 2014 to welcome all three Services into the competition.  In 2015 the race format changed to 40 minute races with the option of entries being shared by two drivers with up to two cars.  As the previous series, AFRC still rewards consistency rather than outright pace the compulsory pit stop during the race splits each race into two consistency scores.  In 2017 our competition was enhanced by operating as an official championship.
