Why not do it how IIC does it and have a central saucing table where all the sauce is kept? Sauce as early and often as you want but no saucing in the pits at all.

There was a little bit of uncertainty about the race and if it could actually go forward this year, so the registration date will be pushed back slightly now that the race will go forward as planned.

Sorry to hear that. Hope things get resolved!

Will be among the first to sign up as soon as things are confirmed.

Default Tamiya Race Track Announcement

For those that are not aware, the Tamiya track will be closing later this year. Here is the official announcement from Tamiya (from Facebook):

Tamiya America Race Track
February 15 at 4:47pm


The end of an era...

Nestled in the foothills of sunny Aliso Viejo California sits a small race track. A facility that started as the testing grounds for a freshly established hobby company 24 years ago. The company is Tamiya America, Inc. and the track grew from testing grounds to what it’s known as today, Tamiya America Raceway.

Over the years we’ve witnessed some of the greatest names in R/C racing from around the world battle wheel to wheel. We’ve watched dreams come true for some and hopes of victory slip away for others. The victories are never sweeter and defeat never harder as seasons come and go, but the dream has always been, win at Tamiya.

It is with these thoughts and memories in mind that make this difficult; as most of you know the Tamiya Raceway property has been on the market for several years. Although some had hopes it would never happen, we are sorry to report the track will be closing its doors permanently on September 1, 2018.

We won’t say farewell to you, our fans, our supporters, our friends that feel like family. Instead we simply say we’ll see you another day. It is our hope to someday return with a track better than before and offer competitive racing to all ages and experience levels in a new home. We thank each and every one of you for your support and for providing years of exciting racing.

Before we say goodbye to one of the world’s most iconic R/C race tracks, we ask that you join us for one final farewell, one more chance to experience a TCS event, compete against the best at the Reedy Race of Champions and one more shot to be crowned TCS National Champion! It is with great sorrow, but befitting, that the Tamiya Championship Series Finals will be the final event held at Tamiya Raceway, a track that has seen the best racing for over two decades.

Our final race schedule will be as follows:

Tamiya TCS Regional Qualifier
March 25, 2018

Reedy International Touring Car Race of Champions
May 24-27, 2018

Tamiya TCS Finals
August 18-19, 2018

We would like to express our personal appreciation to all those that have supported the track, the Tamiya Championship Series and all the other racing events over the past 24 years. A special thank you to Max Valles, David Bird, Kevin Niino, Mark Hinckley, Tom Kahl, Chuck Leslie and the countless other volunteers that have helped over the years. You have all been wonderful and supportive and for this all of us at Tamiya America Inc. thank you.

See you soon with our next endeavor in the not so distant future….

As someone started RC racing with the original TRF419, it is sad to hear the TAMIYA America track is closing... wish all the best to the company.

Accommodation booked for Reedy. Hopefully, we can see registration for Reedy open soon.

I have a soft spot for the first Tamiya I raced, the 416. Thing was a beast. For one reason or another, I never got to race at Tamiya itself... hoping I can change that this year for the track's last hurrah.

Unless there is some unexpected delay, we are shooting for March 5th.

For now, check out photos and coverage from last year's race:

Wow... It was great to hear you sharing the story. TAMIYA definitely had its prime, and the brand made an impact on RC for sure. Hope to see you there in May.
