Hi all,
I am in the USAF and just got notification of an assignment to Aviano. I will spend a year in Korea before moving to Italy in Aug 2010. Do you know of any tracks in the Aviano area? I prefer 1/10 or 1/8 off road.
Thanks!
Josh

Emanuel,
Thank you so much for your help:D Those tracks look fun and I'm glad to hear there is a few tracks close to Aviano. Is there some 1/10 EP tracks in the area too?
Thanks Again :thumbsup:,

mmmmm ....
Unfortunately in Italy the 1/10 Ep scene is not wide as the 1/8 nitro one (both on and off road).

This because many RC drivers think that the Ep buggy are only toys :thumbdown::thumbdown:.

However now things are changing because a lot of nitro user realize that the ep buggy are fun as the nitro one (thanks to the new 1/8 Ep class :D).

1/10 Ep tracks are located far away from Aviano:

Collegno (in Tourin)

Vinovo (near tourin)

Assago (in Milan)

Varallo Pombia (near Novara)

Scandicci (near Florence)

Hope the next one is near my location :thumbsup: !!

P.S. The Italian "oOple" forum is www.automodelli.it/forum (http://www.automodelli.it/forum) (if you post in english someone will reply .. ) and for the 1/8 Nitro http://www.modellismorc.net/ ;) !!!

Emanuele,
Thanks again for your help:thumbsup: Some of the tracks are not too far to drive to. Looks like my three years in Italy will be a lot of fun for me. Now I need to study Italian.
Thank You!!!

Almost there! 2 weeks left in Korea, 3 weeks of vacation in Japan, and 2 long flights before I arrive in Italy. I have been looking at some places to live when I get there and I am really thinking Sacile is my number one choice. All the photos I have seen it is a beautiful city (the wife likes that) and looks like there is a track in Sacile (I like that and the wife does not know). What part of the city is the track located? I would love to find a place as close to the track as possible. I have also been thinking Fontanafredda might be a good choice also. Do you have any other suggestions? I would like to stay with-in about 20 min for Aviano AB if possible.

Well couldn`t find a place in Sacile but we found a great house in Cordenons.

So where are the hobby shops in the area?

Hi Josh,
I think that the better place to ask information is directly at the track ;) !

The address of the nearest off-road track (the one in Sacile) is the following:
Strada Ongaresca 7 - 33077 Sacile (PN)

Using google maps it will not be too difficult to get the directions to the track.
From what I can read on the track website there is a race the 31st of october.

You can also try to send an email to the track owner at this address: info@ongaroring.it .

If you want to browse the net for some model shop near Pordenone you can try to search "Negozi Modellismo Pordenone" with google.

By the way, here's a list with a lot (not all) Italian RC tracks

P.S. sorry for the delay :blush: . I will not check the Italian forum often, so next time feel free to send me a PM ;) .
