Default Electric onroad racing in San Gabriel, CA

Is anyone still interested in parking lot racing? I'm opening a new hobby shop in San Gabriel, CA and have a fairly large parking lot in the rear. I would love to organize some racing for touring and drift cars.

Racing would be limited to electric cars only. Nitro may be too noisey for the local residents to handle.

Talking 1st and 3rd Sundays

You could probably get a turnout on 1st and 3rd Sundays. Don't bother on the 2nd and 4th Sundays because thats when Charlie B. has his races and we all know he's the man. Check out one of his races if you want to see what it takes. Good luck.

Good point!!! Charlie B is cool. I met him when he filled in at a Pegasus offroad race. I'm not trying to take any business from Charlie. I'm just trying to add a place for onroader's to race at. Especially in the LA County region.

I may even see if Charlie is interested in hosting the parking lot races. Although, I'm sure he would like a couple weekends free a month.

Thanks for the input.

Wow, Camarillo is a long way though. Do you guys get a lot of LA County racers up there?

There's nothing better than racing in your backyard. 5 minutes is a hop skip and a jump away.

If open for practice/playing (not racing every weekend), I would come even $20 fee.

Honestly, I am not interested to bring a lot of equipments to the track and only play a few "5 minutes races" in a whole day. Since this reason, I never want to go Charlie B's track.

Oh no, don't stop by yet. We're not open yet. It's just an empty store now. We should be good to go in October, with a Grand Opening sale to follow in November.

I'll definitely set up practice days for those whom just want to have some fun. Also, I won't be charging $20. That's way too high. It'll be just a small fee to cover maintenance and setup. The main purpose is to have fun.

Charlie B's the man. If you're into racing, he's got a great program going.

When my whole parking lot program is up and running, I'll let everyone know.

Sounds good, I must come...... Looking forward to your Grand Opening. (May I know whether you may provide electricity or have to bring own generator?)

I just realized they moved this forum into a different category.

A clean bathroom is provided, via my shop. I still have to figure out the electricity thing... I just don't want to blow a circuit out of the store. Perhaps I'll buy a generator or something.

Buggy Grip... I thought I was the only that sniffed that stuff.
