RCK challenge

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The RCK-Challenge , formerly HPI-Challenge or LRP-HPI-Challenge, is a racing series organized by RC-KleinKram for remote-controlled cars in Germany and Austria. It was brought into being by LRP electronic . It is held in several classes in open races, in which it is possible to qualify for the annual German. The races are only held on smooth tracks, i.e. race tracks on concrete, asphalt or carpet. With almost 300 participants, it is one of the largest RC racing series in Germany.

With the LRP Challenge , the series also has a counterpart on loose surfaces. In the early 2000s, there was also the LRP-Nitro-Challenge for RC cars with internal combustion engines.

Delivery mode

From summer to summer of the following year, open races are held in all classes of the Challenge. It is possible for everyone to score points in their regional ranking (north, east, south, west, center). The best points in each region and class qualify for the German championship. This will be decided on a race weekend.

The summer races are usually held outdoors, while indoor races are carpeted in winter.


Only classes with vehicles on a scale of 1:10 that are powered by electric motors are offered.

There have been four classes since the 2019/2020 season. The FWD for front-wheel drive touring cars is the slowest class. All other classes are open to all-wheel-drive touring cars. These differ in terms of their engine power and gear ratios. All classes use a standard tire.

Former classes

For beginners, there was the rookie or Porsche class with a simple chassis and weak engine. Above it stood the Classic, which started with more powerful engines and classic-looking bodies.

For real racing touring cars there were classes 17.5T and Stock. They are comparable to the top classes in the Euro Touring Series . Gran Turismo bodies are used in the 17.5T , while the Stock only uses bodies that have been optimized for racing. Both also differ in the strength of the engine.

The classes have changed over the years. For example, there was a class for Formula 1 cars or Le Mans prototypes for a few years.

German champion

A German championship has been held regularly since 2000. In 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, no German championship could be held in Germany .
