Hello everybody, after 8 years of being open since 1999, SpeedWorld has held several ROAR Nationals and NORRCA’s first ever 1/10 Electric Sedan Worlds at this facility. We have been honored to have the best drivers in the World from USA to International come and race at our facility. The race facility will be closed for three weeks. SpeedWorld Raceway & Hobbies will be in the process of re-modeling the entire race facility. We are asphalting a NEW area of 164 x 80 feet of surface along with a 48 foot length driver’s stand. Our old facility track was 117 x 65 so it will be much bigger.
SpeedWorld would like to thank all the racers that have been to SpeedWorld over the years and have met many new friends and many have become family members. We look forward on having some bigger races at SpeedWorld facility and having you racers come back when the project is done and race with us would be an honor.
I really have to thank all the members from www.RiverCityRC.ORG
, Northern California racers, Jake’s Performance Hobbies, Remote Control Hobbies and some of our local business for advertising with us to help start this project for SpeedWorld Raceway & Hobbies.
This is what is unbelievable and that is why I am sharing this information with you. We were going to re-model in 2009 if I did not sale the hobby shop and race facility, but it seemed that some of our local racers did not want to wait to re-model, not because the facility was thrashed, they wanted a longer straightaway and probably to keep me here longer and not sell the place, LOL.. So what those people that I have mentioned above alone have got together and called in to help when they heard about this plan, raised over $11,000.00 dollars of the $24,000.00 re-model project for SpeedWorld in less than 3 weeks, but I can really say it was only over a 4 day process, that is what is unbelievable. I am sure there are a lot of great racers out there that would help their hobby shop race track facility out, but this is the most unbelievable, unselfish story that I have ever heard of in the r/c business in 25 years.
I was thinking about selling the facility earlier in the year, but I guess I am not now, LOL.
This project will be starting next Wednesday Feb 27, next week.
This is very overwhelming and my wife Tracy and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You gays and gals are awesome and best in the hobby industry and we hope to see many new faces in the next year or two for racing.
Again, thank you everybody that has made this possible to start this project and all racers that have ever been to SpeedWorld. All you racers over the years have always respected us and our facility and that is why I have made sure along with other race facility owners I am sure, keep our facility one of the nicest in the country, because we enjoy you racers, you are our family.
