Default Any tracks in Bay Area for 1/8 on-road?

Where do you run your 1/8 on-road in Bay Area? Except RAMS since they close in Winter time.

Thanks.

No more 1/8 scale at NorCal even for practice. Neighbors complained.

RAMS is the only place and driving to LA or Vegas are the only options. Or... you can get B44 buggies like me and Jake for the winter

thanks for the invite jason mac. truth is, i sold my evolva a few years back and was contemplating getting back into 1/8th scale. i ran at rams before but it can sometimes be hard for me to commit my sundays. i was hoping that i can find an open track with some lights to run at after work when i have time (like le mans kart before). worst comes to worst, i can probably run during the practice time at rams and bounce out if i can't stay for the races. again, thanks for the invite.

btw lemme know if you have any used cars for sale.

thanks,
chris

Hey Nismo you can give VRC a try, although honestly our track is too small for 1/8th scale. And most of our guys stopped running 8th as well. We do run 10th open and 200mm sedan though.
