Default 1/28-1/18th scale racing in Miami!

Hello, I am here to see if there is any interest for 1/18th scale racing. We will begin racing once we generate enough interest to start a class and we already have a lot of interest in Mini-z racing (1/28). The surface will be either RCP Track material or a resurfaced parking lot. Our location is @ 12847 sw 42nd ST. The name of the store is MicroMotorSport Hobbies, and we currently race 1/28th scale and want to broaden the scene to 1/18, and may also run drifting sessions aswell. Thank you for your time, and hope to see some of you come out to race

We will be holding a race this upcoming Sunday for Mini-z, stop by and check our the store if you like.

An idea of the space we have for 1/18th outdoors: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8w0...related&search=

this is about half of the parkinglot lengthwise, and as you can see, plenty of lighting. 1/28th scale races are held inside of the store.

Yes there is plenty of interest! There are a bunch of micro and mini cars around here in Broward. You should make some flyers to hand out.

I will be there this saturday. If you like give me some flyers and I will hand them out. Also all the nitro guys in miami have micros, they use to run them at Dave and Busters . Post some of you info on the nitro threads!

try to pass by on Sunday, to check out the Mini-z racing! About the flyers, will do! Looks like theres quite a bit of interest, so i'll get right to it organizing classes, track layouts, etc. I'll be updating often as time progresses, and will also announcing upcoming races in this thread.

Just a reminder, please come out on SUNDAY to check out the Mini-z Race that we are holding! even if you don't have car, just stop by to check us out! See you guys soon
