Default Shamrock RC Raceway: Mankato/St. Peter Offroad Turf Racing

I figured I should start a new thread with the actual name of our racing venue down here in the Mankato/St. Peter area. Please set your alerts so you see new posts to this thread if you want Shamrock RC news.

We race on indoor/outdoor carpeting with constructed bumps and jumps. It's 10th scale electric and we race most every Sunday starting at noon and finishing up around 4 pm.

Follow us on www.facebook.com/ShamrockRC and visit our website at www.shamrockrc.com for the most current info.

The weather forecast for Sunday racing looks great! Don't forget, the track is open every day as long as there's enough light for you to see your car. Corey has the track finely tuned - come check it out.

Rumor is there may be a BBQ track-side this Sunday.

Folks start practice laps around 10a usually with heats starting at noon. Check us out on Facebook or on our website - www.shamrockrc.com

Rusty asked for a vote on who would come down on the 3rd, and pretty much everyone raised their hand, so racing is a go for Sunday.

Do you guys have a beginner/novice class? This might be something my son would be interested in.

Yep, they sure do. Some weeks there have been two heats of rookies.
