Default Hines Park, Plymouth,MI.

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.

I just found this video, from what I'm hearing the track is still open, it is owned by Wayne County Parks but it is not being groomed, maybe some racers from the area can get together and maintain it.

I would definitely donate some time.

I've been out there when some of us bring shovels and work on the track. It would be nice to get something organized out there.

No time like the present.

Most people will just run it until its unusable and go back to not having a track, I have a relative who works for Wayne County, I will talk to him about private citizens maintaining the track.

There is a Hobby Shop called Dirt Burner Racing in Livonia who held organized racing there but I don't know what ever became of that.

anyone ever want to meet up there and race? no chargers up there so that kinda sucks, it's about 35 minutes away from me but i'd like to go there...only have two nimhs now though, and two lipos, not sure if i should make the drive for only four battery packs...i'll have to see how long the lipos last, haven't gotten the charger in for them yet....i'll at least have to check the track out regardless one of these days. if anyone wanted to get something organized for some runs on a weekend or something i have a 1/16 scale i'd gladly bring up for some fun.

i was there this last monday and it was a bit dusty and some of the piping wasnt in the best shape, but it was fun. It was a bit big for my SC 1/10 scale but it was fun. I plan to try and go back this next week. From my understanding I think its open all day.
