Hey Kropy, are you coming up for the countdown?

I cant mention CEFX as I have never been there but I hear good things.

Regarding GRCSR this is a banked oval track, they take their oval very serious, just ask the Salvas Brothers and Todd Putnam. TQ batteries, Putnam Propulsion, CustomWorks.

Fastcats just visit my site you will see tones of pics. Lets drop some names, Blackstock, Lemieux, Baker, Kropy, Crisp, Hebert, Easton, Ernst lots more have raced and all had a good time.

Tamiya moved their offices elsewhere so they no longer have the land the track is built on. I believe it is set to have houses built on it or something like that. Realestate is nuts in Cali from what I understand.

Our local gas track in Durban, South Africa.


Our local electric track ontop of the roof parking at a large shopping mall.


Another onroad track in Pretoria, South Africa.Venue for the "African Cup" International.


Maybe an idea to post Google Earth co-ordinates.
Get a international list of tracks

If you are looking for a track with elevation changes, Ashby in the UK is a great example...



The central section near the rostrum raises up a fair few feet then sinks back down with a couple of hairpins. There is quite a steep banking and camber on the sweeper and a few other corners too.

It is a challenging track and unfortunately on my only visit there I completely failed to master it!

Probably my favourite track that I have raced at for electric touring is the one at Carlisle in the UK...



Can't find any good pics of the whole track, but it is the perfect size for electric touring, especially 19-turn, compact but with a variety of corners that make it a challenge and fun at the same time.
