The good news is we are getting new lights on the North and South end of the track. It will offer more lighting and save the park some money. More good news, they are working on getting us back up and running ASAP. There is no timeframe but he insured me that we will be happy, there are still a lot of issues that need to be worked out but I am working on it.

I will keep you all posted.
Great news!!

FYI - Port Charlotte and Kissimme are having club races this weekend if anyone is interested. Some of us may try to go this weekend. Most of us will be going to the FSEARA race in Valkaria next weekend. I hope to see some of you guys there.

Looking for your monthly racing fix? FSEARA race #2 in Port Charlotte is a little over a week away (10/26/2014). It was good to see some of you at last month's race. I hope to see some of you guys again in Port Charlotte. Also Valkaria is having a club race this weekend.

Stopped in to check on progress of track, and sad to say nothing has been done at all since I was there back in June. The track pipes itself are still there, but still see rotten wood, fence still just laying on ground. I think Royal Palm Parks has abandoned the project. Its a shame, there seems to be no clear direction or club backing to see this get finished.

So frustrating. Bought all this gear in March, only to have the track shut down before I could put a car down. Days off don't agree with other tracks so much... Sucks.

The enthusiasm shown in the past few months to get back to racing is encouraging. When the time comes, we should have a solid group of racers to help get the track back to being one of the best facilities in the country. Although the progress has been slower than any of us want, Robert has met with the Royal Palm Parks department multiple times and has been assured that they have not abandoned the track.

For anyone interested, our friends at Valkaria are having a club race this weekend. Go check it out.
Also don't forget there's a FSEARA state race at Superior Hobbies on 11/16/2014.

Default Track is Back

All,

Met with the City today, we will have our track back in two weeks! This is great news and has taken a lot longer than expected!

The parks will be buying us a Drivers Stand, no timeline though, but they will try for sooner rather than later. Until we get that, we need to borrow one or rent one from a track.

Also, we need to re-paint the whole surface so it all matches and looks nice! We need to have a work day to do this. The sooner the better! Let me know your thoughts on that.

Looking forward to good year of racing back at the VILLAGE!!
