Chargers RC is a not-for-profit club registered in Queensland, Australia. All proceeds from membership fees, race fees and other club fund raising activities are used for operating the club and making improvements such as track rebuilds, equipment purchases & upgrades and hosting local, state and national championship events.
In 2017, Chargers RC moved from the Redbank Plains Recreational Reserve to its current purpose built facility at 215 Cobalt Street, Carole Park. The new facility was provided by the Ipswich City Council with construction completed in August 2017. To read more about our club history, click HERE.
Anyone aged from 5 years old and above is welcome to come and race. Our club caters for a wide range of skill levels, from the complete novice to the experienced racer. Feel free to come down for a race or even just to spectate. Our club members are more than willing to help anyone wanting to find out about or get started in the hobby.
Club race days are usually held every second Sunday, from 9am to around 4pm. Our race season runs from February until December, with a club sign on day held in mid-January.
Chargers RC run only 1/10 scale electric vehicles. We run the following classes on race day:
Junior (up to 16 years)
2WD Buggy Stock and Modified
4WD Buggy Stock and Modified
2WD and 4WD Stadium Truck/Short Course (usually run together)
2WD Sportsman (any motor)
4WD Sportsman (any motor)
In 2023, we opened a second dirt track within the same facility that will be used solely for 1/10th scale vintage racing. Vintage racing will be held once a month with details to be provided on our Facebook page. Your membership of Chargers RC includes vintage racing.

A club for everyone
Our club is a place where people of all ages and backgrounds meet to race in an environment that is safe, supportive, respectful and inclusive. We are a club where mateship is more meaningful than winning and where importance is placed on guiding and encouraging our junior drivers to develop into the next generation of skilled racers to take our hobby forward.
We have a club Code of Conduct which we expect all members and race day participants to abide by.
