I don't have an indoor track close, so this is what I do during the winter.

I take a chill pill, watch some football and wait for spring season to start again. I need the break, otherwise I burn out on RC. It happened 4 years ago when I race TC indoor in the winter.

Xbox! I raced last winter, it helped alot but getting burned out on RC plus 3+ hours to get to the track it takes it out of ya. Xbox black ops online helps with hand eye and with controlling your temper, those b@mn 8 year old kids kicking my but just reminds me of getting hacked and having to fight my way back to the front.
