Default Any information on RC racing growing as a sport?

I'm putting a proposal together in hopes of persuading our local parks dept. to let us use some land. (for an offroad track) I think it would be beneficial to include data showing the hobby growing as well as other positive attributes. (ie: clean, safe hobby, good for father/sons etc)

Can anyone point me towards this information? Any suggestions you have also would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

i would say yes the sport has grown more in racing terms, i mean electrics are
all brushless now and lipos too ,to make it easier for electric guys. and not to metion the all the sc trucks ,bringing in more people to race for cheap.


now has for nitro it has grown way more, than before since race engines are cheaper now and engines are easier. to tune now than it used, to be runtime on a tank of fuel is getting better.



i would say its pretty safe.
