The Canterbury Radio Control Car Club is located at the Ruapuna Park International Raceway, in Templeton, Christchurch.

Measuring 375 metres in length, the circuit was laid in December 2002 to international specifications and we are currently the only club in New Zealand with a purpose built outdoor radio control car racing facility. Our drivers stand measures 12 metres long and is 3.25 metres to the deck with a fantastic view of the track.

We run the latest lap counting equipment with most of our members enjoying the benefits of running personalised transponders, providing accurate lap timing and race results which are available to view online along with monthly points system for each class.

There are 11 race meetings throughout the calendar year. These are held on the second Sunday of each month (with the following week held over as a rain delay day) with the racing season and points system running from September through to September each year. Due to the summer break, there is no club racing on January. The club often hosts larger events such as the South Island Champs as well as the Electric & Nitro Nation Championships from time to time.

We welcome spectators and new club members if you are interested in getting involved. You can get hold of us on the website for more information or even better, pop down and introduce yourself at one of our upcoming race meetings, there will always be someone to help you out and give you advice.
