Default My track in France

Hello from France,

I want to share with you the place where I race.
We are 200 in this club.

These movies were made during the fourth round of the 1/8 French championship, 9/10 june at Toulouse (south west of france, where the Airbus are built!!)

The track is 360m long and 5m large.
- 1/8 track record: 18"67
- 1/10 sedan: 20"20

Here's some pictures during the building...

Enjoy a typical European track...

Those are some of the nicest looking trophies I ever seen given at a RC race.

Nice tracks !

Onroad tracks in the U.S. are so pathetic. Just couldn't resist.

You’re very fortunate.

Hey America, why don’t we have tracks like that over here?

The straight is around 70m long with the big banking curve after
(inclination 10%), you stay full throtle and you hear your engine screaming and loosing RPm because of the curve!!!
The connecting rod is afraid !!!!!
Amazing...

Fastest speed 1/8: 112 km/h

Don’t we live in the richest country in the world, or is that just the crap we have been brainwashed to believe all our lives?

Could it be that all of those other countries with outrageous tracks are more organized than us?

Someone’s to blame for not growing our sport, should we really keep supporting them?

romuald31 ~

Do you know how much it cost to build this track? Where did the money come from?

What are the club membership fees?

Cheers

No, I think the richest country in the world is Sweden.

That's not it either. You're not even close.

Blame? Why assign blame? It is what it is.
