Can not wait for this one since its in the great State of Texas. Mikes Hobby Shop and Gulf Coast Raceway is a great facility. Here is a great video of the facility.

Looks like a surface we never see up here. Looks nice though.

It packs in pretty well and is a blast to run on. I just hope we will have a layout with more than 20 second lap times. Should be a blast!

The surface is hard to say the least. In 3 years of running races there I havent broke anything due to it though. Traction is great and tire wear for me is slim to none....

Lets just say that they use a sledge hammer to drive the stakes (for the pipe) into the ground. Oh, and I watched them get a gas powered chop saw out to fix a problem with the loop.

Very solid surface!!!

I can't wait........

Best Place in Texas, plus never have rain outs, tons of pit space and parking, onsite hobbyshop with lots of stock, plus onsite food, plus stores all around. Cant ask for much more.
