Default YOUR FAVOURITE RACE TRACK/VENUE

GOOD day all

I thought this would make an interesting thread for the masses to share what they believe is the best venue for racing in the world! or just a good take on your club or where you enjoy racing the most.
Post up some pics of your ultimate venue/track or favourite club and a little short story on why you have chose that particular venue.
It will be interesting to see whats out there.
thanks

The Colesieum at Hobby Town USA - Frederick, MD. - http://www.htufrederickmd.com/

Easily one of the best, if not the best, asphalt track in the US. Indoor, smooth as glass asphalt, foregiving boards, AC, plenty of power & pit space, and a huge hobby shop.

Its a tough call, but anywhere there is carpet I feel a lot happier. You dont have to worry about the weather and the grip tends to be easier to gather.

Heres where ive raced over winter, the Adur winter series.



If I am outdoor racing, the track near me is a good place to race at too (Eastbourne):

Rippin' around the HIGH BANKS of a Bicycle Velodrome at Close to
60 MPH with 19 other cars nose to tail, and side by side is one of
MY favorite types of racing.

more pics from our last state race. When the traction is up.. it is crazy... Locals love it... out of town racers take little bit to get used to the traction.

It is in Royal Palm Beach Florida

It's a temporary track during the winter, but I'm truly blown away by what the guys in Colorado have accomplished with their club in a few short months.

Rapid competition raceway.
It's nothing fancy but we like it.
we are located inside of one of our local malls.
It gives us the opportunity to be in the public eye and a chance to pick up new hobbyist.
