Man absolutely. I'm in Mandeville, and SCR hasn't been active. The only two active tracks to race at are 2 hours away. (Flowood and Alabama). Plus if 1/10 was a thing, I'd hardly run 1/8.

Flowood is an AWESOME place. Gaaa if we could find a municipal/city or private owner building of some kind that's not being used like it sounds like the guys at Flowood did, that would be the way to go. Lease on an existing building big enough to put a track in comes at a ridiculous expense and wouldn't ever make enough to sustain itself. It's no big huge money maker, just enough to keep the lights on. Local business sponsoring the facility is always an option, just takes the right opportunity to get something like that rolling

I live in Lake Charles, and we were regularly driving three hours north to Shreveport to race indoor 1/10 scale. That track closed end of last year and we've all switched gears to 1/8 scale. Our crew would gladly drive 2 hours to race in BR. We raced at Redstick a few times back in the day and would love to have something like that again.

There's vacant buildings all over BR, some have been that way for years. Wonder if there's any tax incentive to make use of it as a 'non-profit' or something for RC track 🤔😂😂

Any traction on this subject.

Really debating starting something here in Chalmette. I have a contact for something that might could happen.

It would be an Covered outdoor racetrack with an Small Onsite HobbyShop.

Kenner resident here, highly interested. I generally do a google search a few times a year for Louisiana rc tracks. So glad this popped up. In fact last time I tried to get back into the racing side was when the indoor track in Chalmette was open. Sadly as I was gathering updated items to race with when they had a fire and never reopened. Interested in 1/10 scale and 1/14 classes and Iíve got 4 teens and an about to be 7 year old that would love it. Please keep us updated. I donít do Facebook but will subscribe to this thread.
