Default The New 1/8 Wonder in Chula Vista Ca

The time has come to release some sneak peeks of one of the greatest tracks that San Diego Has ever seen.

I have been working with some close friends on many levels to achieve a world class track for us to play on in Southern California.

The track size is 220'x120'. It is 8 lanes deep. Pit lane is 75% finished, The drivers tower is in place with a ramp being built this week. Power poles for lighting and PA have already been erected.
The site sits on 3.75 acres of awesome South County property.
The area around the track will be paved and powered.
The 5000 gallon holding tank is being set tomorrow AM.

We have received our ROAR certificates as a sanctioned and affiliated track. Only ROAR members will be allowed to use this facility.

The NEW 1/8 Wonder....

The track is very fun to drive on. Fast, big air, and great traction. Soooo looking forward to burning a lot of fuel here. A real race track for sure. Everyone is going to love it.
