GLC Lives!
 
As most unfortunately know, the long home of the GLC in Toledo is gone. With permission from the Ted, we wanted the legacy to live on so now what we have asphalt in Cincinnati we want to revive the GLC! It wont be the same but we hope to continue the comradery, competition and fun we all had for years. We have the long standing dates of August 25 through August 28th reserved and we are working out all the details. We wont have everything the way we want year one but we hope to provide a good time for all. Toledo is donating their boards and we will be putting them down this weekend and we hope to have a flyer up soon. We are working on some shelter, table and chairs and should have something in place for those not driving in. There are lots of restaurants, lodging, a casino, Kings Island all within minutes if you are looking for other things to do.

We will be posting more updates, photos, etc. as we have them.

Dennis....is that ok to post the location of the track? I would like to start knowing how to get there from Chicago and hotel information. Thanks. Can't wait to fire up the nitro after 2.5 years of storage.

Absolutely!

I'm already getting questions about whether the GLC will have any Electric classes racing. I replied that in this RC "climate" I would think it would be a strong possibility. I also said I would post here and reach out to you and Rene.

I would anticipate at least in year one we will have availability to run other classes.

Hello,

Is this race really happening? Do we have an idea on classes? Is this track at the fairgrounds?

Please keep us posted.

Thank you

dyoung 06-24-2022 12:49 PM

Yes it is happening. We didnt want to advertise anything until we had asphalt down and knew what capabilities we had for this year. We may not have everything we want done for this year (painted infield, etc) but we will race. Classes will be the typical 1/8 open, 1/8 masters, 1/10 sedan, 1/8 sportsman, 1/8 pan If enough interest, we can run 1/8 GT, 1/8 electric etc. Flyer will be posted next week. Yes this is the new track at the warren county fairgrounds between cincinnati and Dayton.

Airports
 
Had a few questions about closes airports to our track. There are 3 within 90 minutes:

Cincinnati CVG International is actually located south of Cincinnati in Kentucky and is about an hour drive, based upon traffic.
Port of Columbus airport is a little over an hour away.
Davton International is the closest, about a 45 minute drive.

Different airports support different airlines but all are reasonably close to the track.

We are working on a block of rooms. With so much tourism in the area with Kings Island and such, there is a ton of different lodging options.

What are the rules for 1/8 sportsman? Also what 1/8 electric classes do you guys have interest in?

dyoung 07-06-2022 02:16 PM

1/8 sportman is same rules as 1/8 open with the addition of 5.5mm carb restrictor and 16% fuel. There is no plan to have electric classes at the GLC but we will run at club races or midwest series events.

Race flyer
 
We ahd hoped to have the race flyer posted later tonight however a tornado has struck our neighborhood and we have no power and I doubt we will any time soon. Its on a computer and home so I will have to figure out how to transfer or wait until power and internet is restored.

camping
 
There is a campground on site with 35 hook ups. It is bookd for the Midwest Series race in July during the fair, but for the GLC there should be plenty of openings. the campground is roughly 100 yards away from the track.
