Looks like we can expect 40-50 entries so should be a great race weekend. Prizes are starting to roll in too. ESC, motors and some more goodies.

This Sunday there is a club on-road race, which is the last one before the big event. If you want to get familiar with the track that would be a good time. On-road races every Tuesday night too. Sunday Doors open at 8:30, Tuesday 4:00pm.

It used to be a annual event but the last one was in 2008. We are currently rebuilding and restructuring our club so if all goes according to plan this will become an annual event.

Would be great to see some of guys from Niagara region down.

Track is all setup and ready for the race weekend. Laid down some rubber at the club race on Tuesday Night so grip is good. Can't wait.

We race every Tuesday evening at our indoor track. The next major race will be Oct/Nov. Details have yet to be worked out. We are also planning on holding 3-4 Parking Lot races at a yet to be determined location. If you want to keep up to date on what is happening join our FB Group, Kingston RC Racing.
