The Faversham Off-Road Car Club (The FORCC) is a radio controlled model car racing club specialising in 1/10th scale electric off-road buggies. We host race meetings on Wednesday evenings in Boughton Village Hall. You’ll find us there every week of the year (excluding 2 weeks over Christmas). We also host a few outdoor meetings each year and in 2008 we started hosting an Indoor Winter Series running on Sunday’s.
As stated above, we are an electric 1/10th scale buggy club. This means that unfortunately we are unable to cater for other classes such as touring cars or anything fuel powered rather than electric powered.
