Default hong kong again in october 09

Hi there,

In julyI will be visiting Hong Kong for four weeks. it will be the third time i will be there (my wife is from hong kong) but first time i have enough time for other things then family visits.
so i would like to know where to go for some good 1/10 on-road electric action?
is there an event planned in that month?
I am sure i will spend some time in mong kok visiting the shops there again it is so cool that all rc shops are together and thus easy to find.

I hope there are some good ideas.

thanks.

Tom

TRC Race Track (In-door electric on-road) should suit you. check it out:

i would suggest you visit the hobby shop at mongkok first and ask around how to get to this track. its in yuen long area in the new territories.

Default race track

It's a nice race track (TRC) Tom's Racing Circuit?, based from the video that I got from the hongkong rc magazine I bought from Hongkong hobby shop when I visit last May 2007.

I think the owner previously have a TRC track on the old airport, it's the only 1/10th track I have seen during my 2 years working in Hongkong.

Might take a look and have some track time there this May 2008, with my family going for a week tour of Hongkong.

well as it looks now i will be in Hong Kong again for the whole month October.
is there any planned racing in that month that i can go to visit?
most of all I really hope to be successful this time to find the TRC on a race or practice day.

Hi I have just started RC racing in Hong Kong and use the ACO track. Location is closer to Mong Kok. Fanling train station and short taxi ride to the track.

All outdoor and night time racing also.

The people are really friendly. The track supports 1:10 and 1:8 nitro.

well that is a very nice track indeed. nice people also and well filled heats in all classes. best laugh was the 1/8 motorcycle race even my girlfriend loved to see those go around and the fun people were having with those.

I made two videos that i uploaded to youtube, though i can't figure out how to rotate one of them so sorry that it is sideways.

I really hope to have a car in hk one day to try and run this nice technical track.
