There is a track in Eindhoven, check their site at www.erceracing.nl It is in Dutch though.

You can see pictures of the track here:

I am located near Utrecht so I don't know a lot about tracks around Eindhoven. A bit too far away for my liking.

Rod. Greetings from Malta.

Holland is probably one of Europe's most important countries in so far as RC is concerned.

I can think of 3 large companies, who's products are sold the world over, that are based in Holland - AMB, Corally and Serpent. I'm sure there are plenty more.

If you contact any of these companies websites I am sure they will be glad to help. I personally have nothing but praise for 2 of these companies, with whom I have done business, AMB and Corally. I am the Corally distributor in Malta.

Good luck.

Joe Anastasi.

Look for addresses on Nomac.nl or tamiya.nl/racing and you'll find lots of tracks, clubs and info.

As Pizzadude said, try the Nomac site. If however you don't speak/read dutch it would be best to give the guys at the ERCE track a mail. They have a great track, only the competition level isn't realy that high. If you are in need of an indoortrack then i would suggest VIOL in Willich-Neersen Germany. Its only a 60 mile or 90 kilometers drive from Eindhoven. The atmosphere there is great and the level of competition is very high. They have multiple German champs in their club.

Regards
Roy

thanks for the link, I am sure to use the forums later on as my move comes closer,

do you guys know what radio frequency's are legal in Europe,

I currently have a 40mhz XS3 and want to know if this can still be used there, (reason why I ask is because in Australia 75mhz is illegal)

You can check this document for legal frequenties:
(In Dutch, but that won't matter for the numbers )
