Update!

Track is open Monday-Saturday for practice during normal shop hours. No timing loop available. $10 for the day, or $100 for a yearly pass.

Saturday, February 26th - Open Practice Day with Timing Provided by Groove RC.
Sunday, Febrary 27th - Race Day! 9AM Registration, 10AM Practice, 11AM Racing Starts!

Groove RC uses a Trackmate Timing System, so standard MyLaps transponders do not work. The Trackmate transponders are $20 here:

I'll be out running tomorrow (2/12/2022), so stop by, check out the hobby shop, check out the track and say hi!

Default Transponder type?

What type of transponders are used on the outdoor carpet track shown in pictures? Interested in a day trip from the Ft Lauderdale area.

Justin at Groove RC uses a Trackmate Infrared system. He usually has a couple you can rent if needed (get them rented first thing in the morning, as they are usually all rented), but they can usually be had for about $20 HERE.

If you're going on a practice day, there is no timing system available.

Next race is on 4/23, hope to see you out there!

It sounds like there is a group of us getting together this weekend to knock it out, so should be good to go for next week and next weekends race!
