Default NEW TRACKS IN BETHEL CT

How is everyone doing my name is Scott and I would like to inform all of you of a new r/c facility in Bethel Ct. It has been put together by racers for racers. We have know hobby shop to support us so we are doing this as a club. The club is called Bethel R/C Racing Org. We have set up yearly dues member and non member weekly racing prices. We are also a ROAR affiliated track. We will have an off road course an on road course a dirt oval and a paved oval. The off road course is going to be more towards short course trucks meanig no off the wall jumps or such. I have been in touch with some one who has experience in building and running an off road facility and when all the details are worked out I will let you know who it is. The dirt oval will be separate from the off road track, as this can some times be problem. The on road will will have its own section it will be set up with temp. walls because it will also double as the paved oval. If you would like info on joining the club please pm me hear or on hobbytalk also cleancarz there.Thanks in advance for your support.

Cheaper to drive around.

You should put it on hobbytalk too.

It is on hobby talk it is under oval track discussion there is probably all the info you would need also just put in the on and off road threads over there.Looking to open late spring early summer. Just watched the news more snow coming for tomorrow kinda delays everything,but me and the truck make some extra cash to support my racing habit. Does cost that much to float your car acrss the sound?

Please keep us posted. I know a bunch of 1/8 and 1/10 scale off road people that would be interested. Also will the off road track be big enough for 1/8? What days do you plan on running? Is this the old Bethal dirt track? Or close to it, going back about 15 years ago? Thanks............
