So some questions for those that might be racing here.

When? What days would people prefer? How often?

How much, we are thinking $15 for race, $10 each additional class or 10 / 10 for members...

Classes? What do people in this area want to see that I have not listed?

And who in this area is interested. We'd like to know those in the SLO, SM, Buelton, Solvang, SY, etc. areas that are interested.

I'm down to race, and could bring a few guys from this area. Good to know there's another track, that's not too far from home.

I will also be bringing out my Blitz, Hyper 10SC, and the SC8e to do some race testing. If anyone wants to meet up hit up the cell @ 805-588-2448. I will probably be out there around 4:00p.m. so if you want to come out LMK.

Thumbs up Lompoc Racetrack

i love the course! its got its tecnical sections and plenty of jumps, only one straight away...which is good because it makes the race not all about speed-just speed through the sections. i have pictures on my face book acct. look me up.

Ok just to let everyone know we are having a Fun Race on Sunday Aug. 1st. This is going to be our first race on it and a chance to have everyone give some feedback to us on anything we can improve. We are working on having a computer system setup so we can have the AMB system running but if we can not come up with everything we will just run it with spotters and go that route.

As for now we are looking at having three main classes dependent on how many of each car we get out there. The classes will be as follows:

1/8 nitro ( Buggy and Truggy together or seperate dependent on entrants.)
2WD SC (run any motor and electronics)
4X4 SC (Run what ya brung.)

Cost will be $10 per class for the day.

We will be taking any donations also to help with track fees to get us up and running a bit faster. So if ya have a few extra bucks we would appreciate it.

We hope to see as many people as possible come out this Sunday. If you have any questions on how to get to the track or on how you can help out you can either call OG RC at 740-0472 or PM me here and I will try to get back to you as fast as I can.

Thanks for checking us out and we hope you have fun at our facility.
