Most of us posting here race both down at Dougs Hobby Shop Offroad track and also at Pasadena Offroad Raceway.
The Dougs Offroad track is small with small to medium jumps. It is fun to race and very relaxed. It runs every saturday. Sign up starts at 1100 and racing begins around noon. We are normally out of there by 5:30 If 4 or more of a class show they race. I have even seen them run 2 cars of a class so those people got to have some fun even when there wasn't a full class. We have a mix of electric and nitro. Lately the most consistent class as far as nitro goes is 1/8 buggy. Normal weekend brings around 9-10 1/8 buggies. Stadium trucks can get around 6-7 if everyone decides to run theirs(most just run their buggies). And T-maxx can also get 4-5 people. Stadium truck electric gets about 5 racers. Electric 4wd buggy can get from 5 to a full 10. The old amb transponder system is used so personal transponders are not supported. Race entry is $10 first class, half price everything else. The track is right behind the hobby shop. Facilities available are electric outlets for everyone to use and water hose for those neat freaks that have to clean their tires every qual. There is a water fountain and also bathrooms inside the store.
Pasadena Off Raceway is operated by Mr Mark Sommerville. His website is http://www.pasadena-offroad.com/index_001.htm
This track is very nice and will blue groove very nicely by the time the mains roll around. There is no electricity available so u must bring your own. There is a hobby shop very close by in case the triples get the best of you!!! This track is very fast and fun. MadMarko and his guys take very good care of the surface so be prepared for some real good and fast paced racing action. Normally he runs a Novice class(run what u have). Up and coming racers sharpen their skills. They have a TMaxx, Tmaxx unlimited, Stadium truck and 1/8 buggy. Around 8-10 for Tmaxx and Tmaxx unlimited, 10-16 Stadium truck and anywhere from 15-25 for 1/8 buggy depending on weekend and other big races going on. track opens for practice around 8:00am and sign up starts at 10. racing goes at 11:00 Mark runs a very smooth schedule. New AMb system supports personal transponders and also has handout transponders. Entry fees are $10 for the first class and $5 after that. Track is really fun and fast with technical sections. Crowd is very friendly and the not so friendly ones are kept on a leash by Mark ;-) Everyone helps each other out so we all get to have fun.
Sorry for the long rant but figured I do some promoting so we get more racers out to these facilities.
