Default RT281 Raceway "Off-road" Friedens, PA 15501

If anyone is in the general area of western Pa and interested in offroad racing mainly 1/10 , we are putting in a dedicated 1/10(larger) maybe 1/8(smaller) scale out door off road track at the RT281 raceway location.

Surrounding areas if you dont know are:

Pittsburgh 1 hour
Altoona 1 hour
Morgantown WVA 1 hour


We are looking at saturday races that start during the day for practice(maybe 1:00) and start racing at night 7:00pm under the lights.

It will be a larger dedicated site. the site dimensions are 125 X 80 FT. As for a layout there is nothing yet completed.

We have a AMB Rc4 counting system, Lights and indoor Pitting. If you are interested in learning more please post up here.

We also have a 450 ft bank concrete oval on the local for those guys that may have pan cars.

Thanks
Shawn

I'd be interested in the 10th scale and 8th scale off-road. Would be nice to have a local track for once!

Hey Shawn, what's your proposed opening day? I'd like to see a 1/8th track personally. And also maybe a little earlier start time, maybe doing mains under the lights. Are the pits the same ones that we used for oval?

on the pits yes if we start getting some good turnouts.

I am going to need advise but the bob cat is ready as soon as it is dry enough to start moving the dirt.

i am looking forward to this because it seems i have alot more off roaders local then i do pan car racers.


as for start times. i just want to make sure we give people enough times to get thier honey do;s done


Also it will be located right off the back of the building next to the oval

i have had alot of emails about this idea

So i just want to say

We are going to start small, I welcome the ideas that everyone is giving me. We will be taking step by step and hope to have a great place for locals and others to come out and enjoy.


I heard alot about surfaces and jump distances.

Since we are somewhat limited in size 120x80 i think we will build something, it may be more technical 8th scale and a larger 10th scale or should i say SC track.

It has been 20 years since i had my off road track in waldorf md. But i am looking forward to it

Again suggestions are welcomed.

Default GREAT NEWS!!!

Really glad to hear that an off-road track will be available in Somerset and Saturdays works for me. I have an 8ight-T and a Ten-T, and was looking for somewhere local to run. Keep us posted on progress.

Guys here is a first try at a layout. I am trying to design it so the 1/8th can stretch their legs out some and also maybe have a shorter more friendly 1/10th run line.

All these measurements are estimated each box is representing 3 ft.

also they are estimated from the inside of each turn.

Using this estimated design the run line is about 410 ft maybe give you take 20 ft.

Not sure if that is big enough for 1/8th scales.

this has none of the technical jumps etc. this is just a first attempt at a layout. any advice would be greatly appreciated

Again keep in mind it is a rough draft.

In addtion we may be able to find another 30 or so feet depending on how it lays out
