Default Who wants a new track in CT?

Does anyone think that there should be another track around the area? Another track can help out alot. I mean this can maybe give some kids a chance to work there. In florida i work at Bashers occasionally just to help out and another track would be great because if we can get. Big track and a small track thatd be awesome.

Wolcott has 2 shops ad so does pinshop.

I can probably get a place cheap that has alot of space. This would be great.

If anyone else agrees then just say so.

Where i live, north haven, just 10 minutes from new haven, there hsed to be 2 hobby shops and i loved to go there just to hang when i was little. The guy went out of business and said he would open up a nice track in a few years. I was waiting for the track to open and havent talked to the guy in a while but here we have plenty of spots, fields, and warehouses for a new track.

If we can open up a track then I am sure that many people would come because i have talked to guys around Madness, excitement, and evn guys at Brandord hobbies and they said they would like a new track to go to once in a while.

This is just a suggestion. So if youre in then say so.

I and many others would like this to happen.

Please help us out.

Thanks,
Gio

If anything, we should try to get another large onroad track, like controlfreakz up in chaplin did.

True, that track is amazing but they closed there tracks. We should get a onroad, offroad 1:8, and offroad 1/10 track

The only problem i see is,, all the tracks that are in CT already cannot seem to work together to get groups together for racing, small groups that just race at their local shop does not support the hobby. Myself and a few others make it a point to get to other tracks as often as we can, but small turn outs at each track does not cut it for track owners,, just food for thought. All the best in your ventures and if it does happen i would be sure to make an apperance myself!!

Why?? Just support the tracks that are already in place....there are already too many tracks in CT and not enough dedicated racers to support them.....

New tracks in big areas will help actually. The more people that come to check out the track, the more will join or try the hobby.

Many tracks have rentals and this way you can try it out and if you like it you get into it. A great way to make money and have more people join the hobby.

This is where im getting at. Do you see how many young kids are in the hobby? That means that somehow they are getting into the hobby and one kf those reasons are check ling out the tracks or driving a hobby RC Car for the first time.
