What hotels near the track would you recommend? I and a few of my other rc drivers may come down and in their cases over from FL. We race something very similar as you guys. A rc kart. All in all, I raced for Race Prep, TRC, Paragon, Delta ( the ole Delta villian 10th and 12th scale) back in the day and now I own my own rc business of 10 plus years! We (TERC) makes and produce them here in Birmingham Al.

If weather looks to be a go, if nothing else, we may just pull in and say hi. Nothing like seeing 14' ken and barbie dolls driving rc karts at 30 plus mph on a onroad rc track!

There are about 6 hotels at the other end of airport rd, at I-65, exit 3 and 4. It is about 6 miles from the track, there is a Motel 6, Days Inn, America's Best Inn, Econo Lodge, all in the 50.00 range, then there is also a Hampton and other nicer places right in this area.

Thank you for your kind advice. Were looking at google maps right now. We're Getting ready to close shop here but before we did such, thought we'd see whats around your area. What I gather is,,,, THERES A LOT! I'll make contact with some of our the guys and gals and see whats on their Sunday agenda.


Once again a BIG THANKS!

Yeah, it started looking around 6pm yesterday, that we weren't making it down. Since the event was on a Sunday everyone had yard work and family things they couldn't get out of. I guess everyone thinks were not going to have another nice day this year to do those things????? No worries.

We'll see ya soon. I can pass through there heading to PC Beach FL myself one day soon. I'll just take the long way around

Thanks for all the info and I'll keep the hotel list as well.

Hello. I will be up in the Pensacola area for six months starting in February. It seems that the Hobbytown in Mobile will be the nearest place to race onroad? What classes do you run and how often? I currently have a RC12R5 pan car and a Xray T311 touring car, both with Tekin ESCs. Do you run boost classes or none boost classes? Thanks.
