Default Hobby Habit Indoor - Adelaide

Hobby Habit have opened thier fantastic new indoor racing facility in Adelaide, incorporating indoor onroad on an Asphalt surface, and indoor offroad on a Clay surface.

The track entrance is located at the rear of 144 Daws Road, Melrose Park.

The track is open 7 days per week, Access for non members is $5, for usage of both tracks. There is a membership scheme also, contact the shop for more details
Monday-Thursday 10-6pm
Fridays 10-9pm
Saturdays 10-6pm (when no race meetings)
Sundays 11-4pm

On site is a well stocked Cafe with fantastic food, drinks and service, with a seperate eating area. Pit areas have 240v wired to each pit space with spacious pit benches provided for each driver. BYO Chair

Of course on site is also a well stocked hobby store, this is due to open very soon - the guys are just finishing this section off

The Off-Road track is also currently undergoing some final finishing touches and should be ready in the next few weeks - if you've seen pics of Yatabe Arena in Japan, it reminds me a lot of that track!

Paul Savage also has prepared a short movie of the facility, check it out here: http://zone3adelaide.com/rcmovies/in...d/HHI%20EP.wmv

Here is a panorama image of the On Road track, thanks to Paul Savage for the images and Ian Smedman for joining them togeather.


I took some images of the pits, track and cafe myself on Saturday night but they didnt come out very well (old sony 3.2MP camera is on its last legs..)

This place is world class!

Heya Tony.

The dirt is on the opposite side!

Went down and had a look this afternoon, looks very impressive, should be awesome once the offroad track is up and running!
