I went to see this yesterday and was impressed.
Much easier to get to than TRC or Trackarena.
The outdoor track is quite big. I couldn t try it out as it was raining heavily but will definitely be going back in the near future.

it is free of charge to play on the track, there are nice pit table with power but not sure if you need to pay for them. Supposedly you can call the department and find out.

For normal day the pit area is not opened so can't get electricity. For RC clubs can apply in advance and they will arrange to open the pit area for races and things like that. But if you drive there as the parking lot is right beside it I guess you can pit beside you car and charge batteries from your car battery.

Most guys I saw were setting up their cars on the benches of the grand stand, so this explains it..
The main thing I m worried about is that the track is fairly open, meaning there are several curves right in the middle that you can take either way. There's no separation or line to really define the track.
I hope on busy days everyone can agree to go round the same way.

it is open to public FOC so a lot of beginners will be there. You will have to be very very careful
