BRCA changes to hardcased LiPo rule

At the 2020 BRCA AGM, held on Sunday 25th October and streamed live via YouTube for the first online BRCA AGM ever, the following proposal was put forward by RCMicroX’s Cris Oxley:

Proposal 2

PROPOSED BY: Cris Oxley (#171681), Seconder Giles Hodginson (#150015)

Page 54, 2020 Members Handbook

General Rule, Para 4,

Amend drive battery wording to enable cost effective micro racing

The exact wording of the rule after proposal has been approved will be as proposed.

Current Wording

ALL Lithium based ‘drive’ batteries used in ALL Sections must have a hard, protective case that completely envelopes the cell(s).

Proposed wording

ALL Lithium based ‘drive’ batteries, over 20wh, used in ALL Sections must have a hard, protective case that completely envelopes the cell(s).

The proposal passed with 39 votes for, and 9 votes against, meaning that BRCA sanctioned mini/micro RC events, and BRCA affiliated clubs can now allow the use of softcased LiPo’s that offer a watt-hour value of 20wh or less.

RCMicroX would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who supported this proposal as well as Darren, Jim and Chris at the BRCA for their assistance in getting the proposal to the table.
