Default Rose Wood - Glenn's Hobby Corner

Anyone here run at the rose wood raceway in goldsboro? I checked it out once and its a nice track. Their main forum is here.

Its an hour and thirty away from me, but its the closest thing to me running onroad. Anyone else here go to glenns hobby corner? I plan to go back and hopefully more often, just got sidetracked with other projects.

Have not been out there in about 6 years when they closed the offroad track. I picked up an onroad TC this past winter and would like to get out there and race on the asphault track.

Pics I took of the outdoor paved track the last time I visited. Behind it is their paved oval track(no pics). The inside carpet track was setup for oval that day, so this is where I practiced and took pics.

Thanks for the pics. Track looks good. Have been running in a parking lot in Cary on Sundays but need to get out there on the track.

I ran there almost weekly when it was only an indoor banked carpet oval, late 90's or so. Glenn's a great track owner and I wouldn't hesitate to stop by. The facility is always top notch.

I used to run TC there a few yrs ago. but the turn outs dropped off and I went 8th scale offroad racing. I have now started running TC's again. But have heard little talk about RW. I heard one or two guys are trying to get TC going there again. But not sure how its going.

There is a new carpet track that is opened in DUrham in the North Gate Mall. Ho-B max. They are running carpet on Wed nights and Sundays.

Track has a thread in this very section. check it out.

or goto http://www.carolinasrcracers.com/ for all of your NC/SC/GA racing info.

They will be shutting down over the summer. Not sure if it's a permanent shut down or not. They usually chat on the other forums. I'll have to scroll over to them and find out. They only race oval carpet.
