Default Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals (1/5 scale)


RC Acres is proud to present its first 1/5 scale three day event, the Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals. In 2013 we ran our first 1/8 scale three day event, part of the RC Pro series, and it was a great success with nothing but large praise for the job well done.

RC Acres’ primary goal was to provide a facility to race 1/5 scale at its best. And we feel we’ve come through. The track owner is a known motocross champion, putting some championship roots in to creating the track.

The 2014 Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals will have three days of intense 1/5 scale RC racing with side events like the “Last Man Standing” race, and more. There will also be camping available on premises. RC Acres also has a concession stand on site. We will also be providing a Pig Roast for the drivers, as well as live Bands to end the nights.

FOR THOSE LOOKING TO SPONSOR
So if anyone is interested in what sponsor packages are available, please do not hesitate to contact me, and we’ll work on pulling through. All packages are not written in stone, and hopefully can be catered to your needs. Contact information below.

BREAKING NEWS regarding the 2014 Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals
Dear 5th Scale Racers,

As you may have been aware, the venue of the Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals, RC Acres, Hamilton, Ontario, has been in discussions with the City of Hamilton regarding their facility in regards to their rights and freedoms to conduct races. Today, was a pivotal day in those discussions, whereas series racing will be allowed to continue, however, multi-day events are currently not permissible. Some of the key components of this event involve camping, additional entertainment and continuous racing, and at this juncture, RC Acres will not be able to stage this event.

But with this devastating news, there is a silver lining. The Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals in the 11th hour has been awarded a new venue.

July 18-20 the 2014 Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals will be held at its new venue, Walton Raceway, inside the Motocross Capital of Canada, Walton, Ontario. Just 125 Km North-West of RC Acres, Walton has already proven itself a more than capable host venue for an event of this magnitude, and will offer additional caveats not offered anywhere else. Everything promoted prior:
• 3 Days of Racing (Friday Controlled Practice, Saturday Qualifiers, Sunday Mains)
• Saturday Night Dinner (Pig Roast or similar)
• Saturday Night Party

Plus...: exceptional camping facilities (Hydro and Water hook-ups available), showers on-site, food booth, vendors, lots of tuning areas, no sound restrictions, and much more.

In 2014 Walton Raceway created a permanent 1/5 Scale Track with an exceptional drivers stand. After the first official race there, the reviews were all exceptional; racers loved the fast track, the varying elevation, the short track maintenance breaks and the layout. They will continue to add events for 1/5 scale racers, and the community is excited to have them as part of our growing industry. They will be an exceptional host for the Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals.

Our thanks to Tom Bitz and Brett Lee team for their quick acceptance of this opportunity, and their accommodation has now ensured that this inaugural and premier race will transpire.

We look forward to racing with you at Walton. It's not the way we had planned it, but we're confident that this race will be as outstanding as we had hoped, just with a different backdrop.

See you in July.

Practice for the Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals
In answer to a few questions that came up: The 1/5 Scale Track at Walton Raceway is closed and under lockdown until Friday Morning of the Nationals for Practice.
There are a lot of things being done, so the time is being used for construction and maintenance; but more importantly, as we have Racers coming from as far away as Quebec, Ohio and maybe farther, we want to ensure that no advantage is given to those in closer proximity. This is a National Race and we intend to keep it as fair and as in spirit as one.
There will be lots of time to practice: 10am-6pm Friday; 8:30am-9:30am & 10:00am-12pm Saturday; 8:30am-9:30am Sunday during the Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals.
Our apologies to those that may be upset that they can't get some track time prior... But for sure it will make it fair for everyone and that makes everyone happy.

They wanted to know what the lap times are at Walton Raceway and what to expect for the Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals.
The answer? 40-42 seconds.
But what we failed to mention... You're wide open for like 35 of them...

Can someone please confirm there will be 'no sound restrictions' for this event? IE - un-silenced pipes? There seems to be mixed information on this.
I can confirm 100% that there are no sound restrictions' for this event, i.e. - un-silenced pipes
