Hi Gaz. All our own cars are 4wd but on the clubs night you can race any type of rc car as long as they are battery operated. Please note no oil engine rc cars are allowed on our tracks. What type is yours? Which day would suit you?

Probably a bit small for open wheeled 1 10th buggies especially so close to the walls with no protective boards round the track, wishbones will be flying

I must be looking at a different picture to you there is only a yellow tube on the side near the wall

Anyway looks good for small scale stuff and for kids parties which I'm guessing what it aimed at

Don't take it the wrong way I'm just saying I wouldn't want my lads to drive their 2wd cars round there because it would cost me a lot in repairs

The place looks great nice decor and setup I'm sure we will be down for a look and a go with the track cars

Looks cool. Always wanted to set up my own club. Much kudos. Sure it will be a success. Out of interest as I'm quiet niave (don't mean to pry). How did you do it, why, how is it funded, is it looking to make a profit (assume no club makes a profit and it just goes back into the club). Be really interested and I'm sure forum members would be to understand the process. Well done!!

Hi, thank you, yes it is pretty cool. People who came to race they loved it. I always wanted to set up my rc racing track centre. I think its fun, fair amount of people have it as their hobby , the kids loving it, and we are just giving an opportunity for people to have a place to race their rc cars. Or if someone just wants to try it out or just being bored on the weekends, then we have the perfect place for small and big boys to spend an afternoon here while their other half is enjoying their shopping. We also do birthday parties and bachelor parties, so there is lots of great things to be excited about. In the future we are planning to make another 2 tracks but Im not going to spoil the surprise

Oh, and how did I do it?
With my own 2 hands and a bit of help from my wife. Took us more than 4 months next to a full time job but it was worth all the effort.
