Default Good News!

Glad to see racing in Ft Myers.

Will there be power available?

Not 100% sure on power yet as soon as I have more info I will post it. However it will be limited if we do access . if someone brings a generator we ask that you keep it on a piece of plywood or cardboard some type of matt to prevent gas or oil from tearing up the asphalt.
I do not want to lose our location so just trying to be cautious.

Is the track prepped in any way, or just parking lot racing? Any photos of the track yet?

I assume tires are just "open" until there is a large enough turnout and people start wanting to run spec tires?

I'm about 50 minutes north of you, but this would be "local" for my location, interested in coming out!

Did NOT realize how big the parking was on the east side!!! Guess that's cause I've only been to the Paradise Hobby.

Any idea the current it can handle? In other words, can people daisy chain off of each other?
