No, it's a city park. Lots of hotels in the area though.

No, the city does not provide trackside power. Most racers charge off a car battery or a high capacity 4s lipo, other have the quiter type generators.

Hey Chad,

Echoing Mike: Sorry to say, there is no camping in the park. Fortunately, you've got hotels out the ying to choose from. I'm having luck with Expedia lately getting some good rates. They had a nice price on a Howard Johnson in Victoria this past weekend. You might try there. There is a KOA in Kent that's less than 20 minutes from the track. That would definitely be a budget option. I've never stayed there, but if it's like the the couple of other KOAs I've stayed at in my life, it's fine if you just roll with it.

Hey Bob,

Echoing Mark: Seatac R/C Raceway is a bring your own power track. I would say 2/3 of people bring a battery, while 1/3 bring a small, quiet generator (e.g. Honda 2000).

Hope you guys can make it!

Wrenching, yes. But also, painting! I remind everyone that we are giving an award for Concourse this year. We have some amazing artistic talent in our club, as well as in the region (also, sadly, some who are woefully fixated on "Championship White"), so let's put those works of art out there for everyone to see!

Those of you coming from the north, make sure to take i405 this weekend. I5 will be closed south of downtown Seattle.

A quick heads up that we are running the whole program today. No racing tomorrow.
