Default "Carpet Racers: A Documentary" is needin' some Xtra press...

"CARPET RACERS: A CRASH COURSE, the only documentary about the world of carpet racing, and radio control, is about to hit the film festival circuit.

The film is a year long journey into the funny and often cutthroat subculture of professional, competitive radio control race car drivers.

The more festivals CARPET RACERS plays, the greater the chance for wider audiences, more exposure, and an increase in awareness of the great sport of competitive RC."

They started filming in 2005. We absolutely loved the film and think it will be a hit. We were given permission to show some of it on www.rctvlive.com and will have information where you can purchased the DVD. Jeff
