Default Naples/Bonita/Ft. Myers RC racing!

Just purchased a lap counting system. Figured it was time to get something going as I was approached by the Florida Powersports Racing Association and the Nostalgic Racing League. Looks like we will be having
organized racing again in the area. Looking for a laid back, fun environment that harkens back to the golden age of RC but yet is still plenty competitive. Our rules will come straight from FPRA and the NRL.

1/10, 1/12, 1/18 scales are welcome.

Off road and on road.

I will post more as we get more.

I live in Naples so a track down here would be great. I think the closest track is SS hobbies in Tampa or drive to the other coast to Coral Springs. I don't know of a close track, does anybody. I run off road 1/10 and 1/8. Do you know where the track will be built and will it be covered as it rains so much down here?

Looking forward to having a track local to the Fort Myers area, ready to get my son involved but traveling around the state makes for a long day. I'll race anything as long as it is local!

As I get updates I will post here and on facebook. Seems to be a lot of interest in drag racing so we are looking at a tree. Will keep you posted!

What about a 1/10 scale off-road track, could that be built?

The property for an off road track is much more difficult to come across. Therefore it is not likely.
