I know the fires were close to the proposed new site. Is it still a go?

The only racing in SD is Barona and that was last night only.

As far as ARC, they are soon to be re-opened in a new location in Temecula. Next month should have first race. Hopefully.

Alright, here's the scoop on the new ARC Raceway!!! This place is going to be sweet

Dan the owner is putting ALOT of work and money into this new facility. When I got to the track, he was there BY HIMSELF working on the finishing touches of the drivers stand.

He's hoping to have the track up and running in January sometime.

The new track is being built in Temecula at the Vail Lake Resort. From the 15 freeway, head east on Highway 79 South for almost exactly 8.5 miles. The track is nestled in the back of the campground between some hills.

The track size is 180 by 90. Usable straightaway is about 160 ft.

Drivers stand will accomodate 15 drivers and is 40ft long and about 10 ft high. If any of you raced at the old ARC, the stand looks alot like that one, only its all new and looks huge. Same storage box from the old track for the drivers stand only now the timing equipment is in an enclosed room extended off the end of the stand.

The drivers stand is also oriented in a way that you will never be facing the sun. No more sun in your eyes

Lots of parking is being grated out.

Pit tables will be on a concrete pad (yet to be poured) that will accomodate approx. 150 drivers. Eventually, all the pits will be COVERED by a permanent structure, but for now you will have to live with the 40 by 80ft tent that will cover about half of the drivers.

Water was tapped into and piped to the track for the ability to keep the track surface dialed.

Electricity will be provided by the same generator that was used at the old track. Eventually, there will also be power brought in by "normal" means of cables and poles.

There will also again be an onsite hobby shop available to supply those of you who like to break parts

And being that the nearest food source is almost exactly 5 miles from the track, ARC will again have their own "Cafe" available for those who like to eat.

Dan also has a few "surprises" planned. One of which he wouldnt tell me But he did show me whre it was going, and he did say that no other facility has ever had anything like this.

There will also be some bleachers for spectators and eventually, he wants to put up a couple of big "scoreboards" so that spectators and racers can keep tabs of the races.

There were some people requesting that it be electric friendly...well folks that wont be a problem at all. In fact, he said that if there is a big enough group of people, that he would do an all electric race day. In the mean time, electrics will be welcome on normal racedays and be included in the race program if needed.

Dan is bound to make ARC one of the finest race venues in California, and by the looks of it, it just might be. He's putting in a lot of sweat and $$$ to give all of us a place to race, so I hope that the racing community supports him and comes out to play when it opens.

I will be keeping tabs on the progress when I can, so if you have any questions, post them here on this new thread http://rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=196269 and I'll see if I can answer them, or find the answer out.

Go to this thread http://rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=196269

Check out the pics

Having an address really will do you no good. Its not open yet. I dont know of an actual address. Just the Vail Lake Resort in Temecula. The instructions I posted takes you to the resort. East on 79 South from the 15 freeway. Go 8.5 miles, turn left into the resort.

Went out there Sunday, place will be sweet. Hopefully, I'm meetng up with Dan there tomorrow. Dan's hoping for an opening around the end of the month. There's some paving to be done, and some concrete to be poured yet, but the "box" is built and they're ready to move dirt. As good as ARC was before, expect it to be even better now. Can't wait for one of K.C.'s chili dogs.
