Default Black Swamp Electric Club in Toledo

Black Swamp rc club is now running almost every saturday on the 1/8 racers track behind the woodville mall in Northwood,OH. There is always enough people to run some form of touring car. You can bring out any electric car to race though. You can run anything within roar rules for the class. Foams and rubbers are not separated though. Every normal club member is mor than willing to help you out, if they can. Everyone is usually friendly and the track is friendly to new racers and advanced racers. The tracks are usually requiing skill to be fast but it is forgiving to mistakes because to the wideness of the track. There is a new track layout almost every week. If you've ever raced at Toledo gas track it's the same thing. We just cut it down. For those who don't know it is one fo the nicest and most well kept tracks with an extremely smooth surface. Racing is only $10 a week except for trophy races. I'll post the blackswamp rc website when I remember it so come out and race.

This track is fantastic, if you live within a reasonable driving distance to Toledo and you haven't run there, you need to check yourself.
A group of us rolled out from Pittsburgh this past weekend and had a blast running there. Big, fast, and flowing coarse. You guys put on a good program. See you folks after we get back from the eXpress Race.
Post the web-link to your web page and forum.

The track is great, and the program is run very smooth with great people. I'd deffinitly recommend it to anyone who hasn't yet had the chance to race there, it's fantastic! The asphalt is butter smooth, I dont remember a single bump in the whole layout.

I would say this is the best track in the area and recommend all coming out to take a run.

Great group of guys, helpful and awesome track. If you like carpet you will love this track.

Take a look and spread the word.

I drove by the other day to look at it, and I agree, it is beutifull. My question is where do they shorten the track?? Certainly you cannot be running the whole track...
