Our track is 100% owned and operated by members/volunteers. 3 Local hobby shops sponser the track(but do not pay our rent)

Its about 8000sq/ft

Has anybody ever tried putting a track in a cave? You can get office space in the caves around here for $3.10/sqft/year (that's all inclusive). I don't know how that measures up to the cost of warehouse space, or if they'd allow a track, but the local paintball and laser tag places use it and seem to do just fine.

Thankfully, we have a nice local facility, but if something were ever to go awry, it might be interesting to look into the "member supported" / hobby shop supported idea like the R/C Ottawa guys are doing.

Default Thanks guys.....awesome info.

Where can I get the polycarbonate strips and how can I secure the poly to the ground (carpet)?

Thanks again and I will try to get pics up after construction.

We are not going to have a shop, but definately would like to make a car friendly enviorment. Porbably carry the basic essentials for drivers to keep them running, incase they need basic supplies.

Good luck. I would also try to have a couple of rental cars at the track. My hobby shop doesnt have rentals but every once and a while i hear people ask about car rentals. I think a good and easy car to rent and maintain is the associted tc3 or tc4. Or if you want you could make serious bucks by renting xray T2's. lol just kidding.
