Motor City Model Boat Club




The Motor City Model Boat Club extends an open invitation to model boaters of all levels and ages, from those who’ve just purchased their first boat to those who have been racing either nitro, electric or gas powered boats for years.


•The Motor City Model Boat Club (MCMBC) was organized in 1958 (under the name Ford Model Boat Club) to foster and promote the sport of R/C Boat Racing in South East Michigan.

•MCMBC members have exclusive use of a pond located in Ash Twp. Michigan during the summer months for practice and testing.

•As a member of a group of boat racers you will be exposed the vast experience that individual club racers have. And as a group, these members can share information with you to get you up and running/competing in no time.

•The MCMBC hosts monthly fun runs at the Ash Twp. pond where the whole family can get involved and prepare you and your kids for racing in a District race.

•The MCMBC operates under its own rules and those of the International Model Power Boating Association also known as the IMPBA.

•The MCMBC participates in the IMPBA District 2 race series and hosts a district club race the 3rd weekend in June each year.

•The MCMBC has a monthly meeting the 2nd Thursday of each month at 7:00pm. In the summer the meetings are held at the Ash Twp. Pond, and in the winter the meetings are held in a predetermined location in the area.
