We plan to run vta, rcgt, touring class, etc. Nothing is firmed up yet.
Your input would be a great help. You can help us. We know for a fact that you are a trend setter in 1/10th scale.
Races during week nights will be considered too.

The priority now is to make the track at par if not better than the tracks here in the USA. It should be car friendly as well so that there would be no harsh barriers that will unduly destroy your c hubs, axles, knuckles, etc. I'm quite sure you will like it there.

What size is the track going to be?? And what kind of carpet are you guys going to use?? Probably the biggest things that come into play with a indoor track is the driver stand(make sure you have enough room), lighting on the track(needs to be bright) and the pit area( again make sure there is enough room for everyone to spread out). I'm really excited there will be a indoor carpet track so close to home. If you guys need any help let me know.

We will get in touch with you. You are actually one of the candidates for a race director. You were highly recommended. When we firm up the plan, we shall sit and talk, see if you like the offer.

So that you know, Everything will be well lit and organized. Pit area is also a priorty. We are avoiding people who want to lord over the events if you know what we mean.

Guys from this side of town are in need of somebody like you.

We are not at liberty to disclose any details on the track -YET.
It may be a long shot, but we plan to invite the icons in RC on the opening day for an exhibition race.

November. Just around the corner!

Thanks, there seems to be a few towns in PA with the same name and I wasn't sure which one to search for.

I am actually about an hour northwest of NYC. What's your zip code, I want to run it in my GPS to see how far it would be for me.

If you guys want to have a good crowd right away then 17.5 blinky touring and Vta needs to be the most popular.

Also f1 would be a good class to push. It's inexpensive to get into.

Oh yea awesome news, It would be a great addition for our RC hobby to have an indoor track.. I agree with the above statement, the guy incharge should be aware that the over all picture and the needs of the many are more important than the needs of the one or two individuals.. hope it works out, good luck...
