Default Indoor Carpet Track

Hello to all,
I just recently moved up here form Texas and it is hard to believe i cannot find a carpet track with in 1hr drive form Columbus. I would have thought for sure that the winter season would be awesome for some indoor carpet racing.

If i am missing something please show me the way. Also if you know of any cheap buildings to rent maybe ill build a track.

Thanks

You build a carpet track in Columbus and I know some new best friends you'll have.

To race carpet there are 3 places I can think of right now (I've been to all of them):

1) NORCAR/The Gate - about 2 hrs. north - http://www.norcarracing.com/ - Great group of guys up there and nice facility. They run 17.5 TC, VTA, F1, WGT and 1/12

2) Red Mosquito Raceway - about 2 hrs. south - https://www.facebook.com/red.mosquito.332 - another good group (some of the same guys that go to NORCAR) - They run 17.5 TC, USGT, VTA, 1/12. Don't recall seeing WGT or F1 there very often.

3) Access Hobbies - about 45 minutes west - http://www.rctech.net/forum/racing-f...gfield-oh.html - Again, some of the same guys that go to the other 2 places but this track is predominantly pan car (1/12, WGT). TC and other sedan classes have been historically very spotty.

I will have to check out Access Race place i haven't seen that place before. I cant see it being too expensive to rent a spot and put some carpet and walls down. I will start looking around.
Some one told me that the indoor dirt track on the east side of town was thinking about having and indoor carpet track built, but that is just hearsay.

Rumor I've heard is Spark Park in Reynoldsburg is thinking about paving for outdoor on-road. But like you said, it's all just talk until someone actually does it.
