Default What big races for 1/10 Electric are coming up this summer near Ontario, Canada?

Hello,

I am thinking of making plans to head out to a major race this summer with my buddies to run our 1/10th buggies and trucks at. I haven't been to a major event in years and would like to make it a point to hit one this summer. Does anyone know of anything coming up? Any info is appreciated. We're located in Ontario Canada, near Toronto and have driven 5-7 hours for a race in the past.

Thanks

Yeah, I was thinking of that. I am going to have a look on the ROAR Site although a good size trophy race is what we're looking for.

Default 1/10

if your interested in michigan races. visit rcxxx.com that is the local michigan race website with the series info on it and other big races.

there is a couple of great series going on this summer, one being the FTMS series; Factory Tracks Midwest Series, put on by Al Horne(team losi) driver.

another thing is there are several of the RC PRO series races going on .

this past weekend we just had nitro indoor state championship race and had like 40 Canadian entries from as far as Quebec(spelling)

another site to try and get info or contact is actionhobbies.com or something similar out of windsor, i know a couple of factory team x-ray guys are there and were talking about some bigger races that a lot of us from michigan were plannin on going.

if you come to michigan, lot of great competition and tracks and many local sponsored guys with regular visits from a lot of west coast pro's.

Vic, you guys are planning on going to some of the canadian races? Have to let me know when as that sounds like fun. I looked at the action hobbies track online and it looks pretty sweet.

To the original poster, here's a link to the action hobbies website: Action Hobbies website and track

Have checked out http://www.rchobbies.ca or http://www.offroadrc.ca/

Not a whole lot of 1/10th offroad racing in Ontario Not like there used to be!

There is also Sammy's Speedway in London or Niaraga Offroad Speedway in Wellandport. They might be racing 1/10th trucks and buggies if they get enough racers
