Model Rocket Shop has been sponsor, technology adviser and product supplier for numerous UKAYRoC entrants and WINNERS over the years, including last years winners.
2009's winner, Royal Liberty School, was supported and sponsored by Model Rocket Shop.
And those Royal Liberty School guys went on and did it again in 2013!
Model Rocket Shop also supported and sponsored the 2015 Essex regional champions from Shenfield School
Not bragging too much, we hope, the Model Rocket Shop guided and sponsored the UK Junior Space Modelling teams at European and World Championship events with design and fabrication assistance, supply of materials and financial support. Three past UK national, regional and international competitors are on our staff. WE KNOW FIRSTHAND ABOUT ROCKETRY COMPETITIONS AND HOW TO WIN ! ! !

We can supply motors to suit all configurations from Estes, Cesaroni and AeroTech. In addition we have other components such as additional motor mounts, baffles, parachutes and other contest winning materials available!
Historically, French fly-offs have not allowed clustered motors due to an unfortunate asymmetric thrust event. So if you are building a cluster entry, you MAY have to redesign if you get lucky and win!
We stock Perfectlite Firefly altimeters and others that are approved for TARC or UKAYROC. Supplies are limited so order early!
We highly recommend getting a copy of the Handbook of Model Rocketry... and READ it! For simulation software, we highly recommend SpaceCAD. If you are interested in a site license at a big discount, let us know how many seats you need.
We will be announcing our own UKAYRoC qualifier incentive plans soon!
