I believe around 20-30 ft wide by 40-50 long. Really tiny, good for about 5-10 second laps. Typically you are able to put down a 50 lap run. (Local hot shoots can) Last time I dropped in, they seemed to be putting 45 laps in but it will increase throughout the season as they just opened up around the end of Oct. We'll get 50 in soon!

Thanks Speedy, I live in New Holland, but I work in Berwyn. In any regard, that seems to be the closest indoor track to me. My buddy and I have a pair of Tc3's we would like to begin racing. Is there a beginer/stock class we could start with? Who could I contact for schedule and info? Thanks

Beginnner class? No. Contact information, go to this site http://galaxyhobbies.com click on boarderlink link and call the shop for details. Anybody there should be able to tell you more information. They start around 1-2pm on Sundays for racing. Saturday is the same time but less of a crowd. If you go Sunday there is a better chance you will see more people. You even get to battle it out with the local Trinity hotshoots. Hope that helps.

Telephone number- 610-696-1786 Ask for Rob the store manager.

Thanks again Speedy, I have never raced, other than with friends on my own dirt track,and bashing out on the road, but I would really like to enter on road racing, is Boarderline not a good place to start as a newbie? I don't have too many other choices it seems.
