Default World Championship Track Kissimmee R/C Raceway Closes

I regret to announce that Kissimmee R/C Raceway, the track that hosted the 2004 Electric Worlds, 2005 Roar Nationals, US Open Championships (4yrs), Kyosho World Cup, VCR selection and many other races has been closed. After extending our previous agreement thru 2011 back in October, the golf course owners have put the course up for sale and as a result the track has to be removed.
This is a surprise I know to all of the racers who have supported us over the years, especially after the recent renovations to the track a few months ago. I received notice that due to the agreement struck, it is over.

A BIG Thank You to all of the R/C community, especially the locals who have supported us throughout our tenure!

This is a big blow to the onroad racing scene.

But I truly believe. When one door closes two more open

Sorry to hear this Kevin. I was looking forward to seeing you guys in December. Like someone above said two more doors will open. Just keep me updated when you get your new track.
