Championship Series is a radio controlled car racing competition that is
organized by Tamiya America, Inc. with the regional support of participating
hobby retailers throughout the USA. Tamiya America has developed rules and
regulations to promote fair competition with the exclusive use of Tamiya
branded R/C car and accessory products. The TCS Series is open to any hobbyist,
both new and veteran, as a variety of classes are available to choose from.
The class structure has a ladder system in place allowing participants the
chance to progress through the series and advance as their skill level
The TCS league is
made up of participating hobby stores around the United States. Each year, a
season calendar consists of 9-10 regional races culminating in the TCS Finals,
which is held every August at the Tamiya America International Speedway located
in Aliso Viejo, CA.
For the remainder of the 2017 TCS regional races, Tamiya’s pre-mounted B3 tire (item 1015) does not have to be used for any of the GT classes. We are completely SOLD OUT. Instead, racers participating at the upcoming June 25th (NORCAL Hobbies), July 23rd (Access Hobbies and Galaxy Hobby) and August 6th (Brownies Hobbies @ Jackson RC Raceway) may use the un-mounted B3 tire (item 53705 RC 24mm Reinforced Tires-2pcs Type B3 Compound. You may use any Tamiya spoked wheel and any insert of your choosing. Of course, you may still use the pre-mounted tires if you still have them in your possession or have access to buying the remaining stock at your favorite hobby retailer.
For the TCS Finals we will announce a tire that must be used for the two-day event shortly.
The Tamiya Championship Series information website has been revamped and re-worked. The information contained within these pages has new navigation. It is easier for new and veteran participants to read through the rules, eligibility, schedules, host regional sites, suggested products and the recommended skill level for the class. The new site will also be growing as new features are implemented in the future.
