Westchester RC's is now serving the hobby world by creating custom and replica body shells painted and all!

We just finished doing a Nissan GTR R35 Cop replica with light bar and front & rear strobes, as well as a custom painted RSpec Mazda RX-7 -

You can find the pics on our FB page @ http://www.facebook.com/groups/188227731237338/ on the main page and on the right side by clicking photos -

D16 - the track would be located in Mt. Kisco - Both my partner and I are located close to White Plains as well so let us know if you ever want to meet up or need anything for your cars!

We def. need support from the locals and alike on this one to keep it going strong! Looking forward to meeting everyone! So far we are getting a great buzz going for that night! Tell all your buddies interested -

If we get enough people the idea would be to start a shop either in the building or in the area so the public can race and get needed parts/accessories etc. without traveling to say the Bronx where some of the better hobby shops are!

You realize there is a shop and track on the otherside of town?

It is still unclear about what you will be running. Can you list the classes? Also do we need to bring a table chairs etc? Where will the track be in the building and what size is it?

Where and what is the name of the hobby store ...? I did a preliminary search and didn't find one ...

For right now we aren't listing any classes for a reason, we have to get a good turn out in order to make it worth while to the management/vp of the space ...

No need for chairs on the ..track has natural small benches built into the side wall from the go kart track which should be fine, and yes its in the building... the track dimensions were just taken yesterday and are approximately 65 x 45 more or less as we are going to see if we can stretch that somehow when we lay the barriers ...you can check out the building @ gpny.com

The track stuff isn't on there just yet , but you can get a sense of the facility

Check out Gallimods Hobby and Raceway.

I have raced there a bunch of times so I am familiar with the facility. The track will be set up on the concrete kart surface or on the carpet?

Looking forward to it!

Was anyone from the onroad community involved or just the drift community? Is this on asphalt, concrete or some other surface?

Regards
Jerry

Default Event Misfortune Today - Still Committed to Bringing Enthusiasts Track

Hey Everyone,

We had some misfortune strike us today as we were about to start finishing up the track - a water main broke this morning very early and flooded half the building badly ruining our space (it was a carpet track) -

We now do not have that venue to use, **BUT we have found another space indoors very similiar but 2-3x the space which would be more than accommodating for on road racers and drifters and allow us to do things the ruined space wouldn't!

We are awaiting a qoute for the space, and we are hoping we can still target that date Sept. 10th! The facility also has gaming, a mini-bowling alley, a rock climbing wall and resteraunt! Also is alot closer than Mt. Kisco - I wont name or state the area just yet but we are doing everything in our power to make this work - literally everyday!

We are committed to bring you guys an indoor facility so please stay positive and as always we will keep everyone update via rctech or our facebook, also if you are willing to help in anyway please PM me (the actual build, etc. )

We appreciate it and are extremely bummed but things happen for a reason so lets move forward and hope we can still pull this off for Sept.!!!

Westchester RC's
-Chris

that sucks but why are you going to change the facility all together? To me having it there was a no brainier. Can't they just clean up the water and put down some new carpet? I mean they would most likely have to do this anyways.
