How often are these events at Tamiya, not sure I could make this one but always wanted to race there.

Also, What time do gates open, races start, anticipated finish times...etc? The minimal power is also concerning...

About three or four per year. It has been a while since the last one but through RC Car Events emails it seems there will be one this Saturday and another event in about a month. Gates open around eight am. Finish time around six pm. Bring table, chair, power strip along with your race gear. EZ up is optional but recommended.

Exclamation Fred-tech #[email protected] Raceway

Hi all,
I talked to Fred yesterday and he said gates will open at 6:30 am and open practice is from 8:00am until9:50, yes we have limited power so if you know somebody with a generator that you can share that would help lower the risk of overloading the track generator.
Just my 2$

Exclamation Track Etiquette

Racers,

please don't park/set-down your (RC) car on track on the back stretch coming out of the sweeper.. there are many racing lines there. last Fred-Tech race I attended ended early for me because of this..

Full speed coming around the turn I collected a car that was getting ready for its outlap (standing still, with no mention of it from the drivers on stand)

...notice I said, please
