Thumbs up Maj's Hobby Shop old school parking lot racing Hackensack NJ

Ok guys since you keep asking I made it come true.

1/8 GT, 1/10 TC, F1 on-road racing on old school type parking lot racing!!!!

The new MHS location has access to more then enough parking lot space that can provide a full day of on-road racing fun!

Would like to host club type weekend racing weather providing.

Today was the first day we ran a test and tune to see what was needed to make it successful.

Lap counting will be provided using AMB.

Next practice will be Sat June 7th. As far as what type of classes are going to run is based on what will show up.

On race days there will be 4 car minimum to run that class.

Already we have 5-8 guys running 1/8 GTe max 4s spec tires class

Video and pics of today's basic track layout will be posted soon

Track spec used today was road rails / fire hose 130'x80'

Please give your thoughts ideas or interest in some on-road racing fun

Is Sunday racing an option? There are a few tracks racing sat already, but I'm not sure if Bergen would let you race on Sunday.

No worries Jerry, we have a chairs retrofitted with special hydraulic jacks that can be adjusted to your desired height. If that doesn't work, I'll carry you on my shoulders.. Hope to see you soon buddy.

Saturdays won't be happening for me. I already have a Saturday place to race. If there is ever another day available I will try to make it out. Really glad to see this happening Maj is an awesome guy.
