Very nice, Metla. Really nice track. Where is it? Perhaps if shot form a higher vantage point (I use the driver's rostrum if allowed) it would have a better angle of view.

How many members does your club have? Ours has shrunk to less than half of last year, and we're thinking of promoting the club somehow. Videos like that would go a long way, I guess, but we don't have anyone capable of doing it. I shoot videos whenever I can with my crappy still camera but that's about it. I have no computer skills or software to put together something decent. Here's some of mine:

Anyway, maybe we'll meet one day this side of the pond, in Oz and race!

What was the Song/Band used in the video?

Very nice video. See some hacking going down. Always nice to see people racing all over the place.

The track is in Fielding,right beside the Manfeild race track ( a full sized race track you have probably never heard of) About two hours north of Wellington.

Its actually the car park for a car club,so we get to use all their facilities, toilets, food, power

No idea about numbers, I'm pretty casual about attending, The day in the video was a national event, we don't pull anywhere near that many people to a normal event.

We have an Offroad track as well,Our website http://www.mrccc.org.nz/

Where in Aussie are you?, I spent a couple years in Brisbane and a couple years in Sydney but for some reason never checked out the RC scene.

Sound of White Noise by Corrosion of Conformity off the album Blind, Their best album imo.

I have quite a few videos on youtube, a number from our recent Offroad club champs, and a few of me just mucking around.

This one is my personal Offraod track, It features a band quite similar sounding to the one on the video above.

+ YouTube Video

Heres my youtube profile for the rest of the vids.

wow, that is a nice track. I love that shade of green you guys used on that track to contrast with the pavement...

New Zealand, yes, your country exports unique products.

BTW, I can't get enough of your Boomerang video, that thing rips!

Yes it is a great track. In fact in my opinion it is the best electric onroad specific track in the country. I always look forward to the meetings they have and making the long 6 hour trip for them.
