Default One-Eighth Scale Racers of Toledo

The One Eighth Racers of Toledo is one of the oldest on road radio control racing clubs in North America. The club has existed for over 40 seasons, having been formed in 1968, and today the club provides racers with a permanent facility that is one of the best prepared and fastest scale car on road asphalt surfaces in the United States and Canada.

The track serves as a weekend facility for club members, a regional facility for the Midwest Series, as the home of the club's own regional race, The Great Lakes Challenge known as The GLC, and was host to the ROAR Fuel Sedan OnRoad Championship in 2004 and the ROAR 1/8th Onroad Fuel Nationals in 2009.

We race both 1/8th and 1/10th scale radio controlled race cars that have all of the sophistication of full size race cars with a considerably greater power to weight ratio. Spring rates, shock dampening, sway bars, drive ratios, tire hardness and even spoiler adjustments for aerodynamics are just a part of setting up one of these cars.

We host 10 to 12 club race events every summer between April and October. These events are raced on a road course layout at our permanent asphalt facility located behind the old Woodville Mall in Toledo. You can find more detailed information including the address of the racing location and the racing schedule in their Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/One-Eighth-...-301028098277/

It is time to plan for attending the 2018 Great Lakes Challenge. The race will be held in Toledo, OH on August 24 - 26. It may seem that this announcement is a little late, but had to be delayed due to situations around the track. Those hurdles have now been cleared and the race will be held as scheduled. A flyer for this event will be coming soon. As always, a wonderful list of sponsors are being lined up in support of this race. As of this writing there will be several nitro classes offered. 1/8th 4WD Open, 1/10 Nitro Touring Cars, 1/8th 2WD Pan Cars, 1/8 4WD Masters are definitely on the card. There probably will be a 1/8th GT class and maybe a surprise or two. Please continue to monitor this thread for the flyer and that will indicate the official classes offered this 2018. A listing of popular hotels and motels will also come at the time the flyer is posted. The One Eighth Scale Racers of Toledo welcomes all of you to attend this event and enjoy some wonderful mid-western hospitality. More details of this race are available in the Nitro Onroad page of RC Tech. The thread is at: 2018 Great Lake Challenge
