club racing 10 mins but we have to set up night before we race as we cannot leave track set anymore following someone moaning.

for any decent sized events 2 1/2 hours on the ferry then anything from 4-5 hours on the motorway

there are closer tracks, but i drive about 1:15 to Leisure Hours every week during the summer. The Proving Grounds is about 25 minutes away from me during the school year.

Home track ( in my signature ) is maybe 30 mins away. Currently we only run outdoor/summer. He has had an indoor facility in the past...not sure of any future plans.

www.rcmadness.com - Maybe 45 mins tops. If it's an RC car, they race em. Indoor/Outdoor, nitro, electric,on and offroad, TC, 1/12, 1/8 bug/trug, Slash...on and on, depending on the day and season.

www.barnstormersrc.com - 1 1/2 hrs approx. All offroad, indoor and out, E and Nitro.

www.rcexcitement.com - Two hrs??? Indoor carpet and dirt offroad. Not sure on the status of their outdoor offroad facility.

Two other I know of that are approx. 1/2 drive, one in Waterbury, CT (indoor dirt offroad) and another in Watertown,CT area ( in/outdoor dirt offroad ). Im not sure of their websites, though I know the facility in Waterbury does have one. Another I know of, I would guess less than 2 hrs drive, L.I Raceway in NY.

Ohh, and I almost forgot a relatively new facility in Chaplin, CT. Dedicated outdoor onroad, and offroad.


Lots of racing opportunity in CT/NY/MA area...There's likely more I have not mentioned

Lots of opportunity to
