I'm not sure dissing other tracks is a good way to gain support on a new track.

indoor offroad carpet and indoor offroad dirt is like comparing apples to oranges.

Run a good program and do good business, make it a shop and a track. That would be good for the area.

There is a ton of RC racers in this area...Lake park is a great example, Losi and Jconcepts have had several national events there for years...Build and we will come and support!!!

If you build a quality track that is run well people will race it as long as you don't compete against an existing track.

Members of a track get out of it what they put into it...competing with local track is fine as long as its done for the good of the hobby and is kept ethical

I really feel we lack tracks period!!!! Even when lake park isnt underwater its geared more towards 1/8 scale, i do however love yupers, really good guys out there, they do everything in there power to make sure the track is good. But as with anything outdoors in fl ur at the mercy of the weather.so im thinkn this is the answer, we would def have a speed shop, along with plenty of pit areas, now just need some opinions on were to put it. South tampa, st pete, clearwater, maby by the airport??? Everyone chime in please lol

Clearwater would be nice, for selfish reasons, but good luck dealing with this city

Any of the places you mentioned, would still be ideal. Just do it legit, so u wont have to worry about getting shut down. Because that has happened(rcasylum). I hope it works out. We need it.
