Default New Track in New Castle, DE

Hey guys, I work at a go kart track called Mid Atlantic Grand Prix located in New Castle, DE. We are thinking about expanding into R/C racing and are looking to get some feedback and maybe some interest. We are thinking about setting up a temporary carpet or concrete indoor track using some of the existing kart circuit we have. We would open up to R/C on weekend mornings and possibly evenings. We already have transponders, so we have all the timing and scoring set up. They are larger than the standard AMB, and they don't really fit anything small like 1/18 scale, but they are fine for 1/10th or possibly 1/12th scale. We would like to stick with electric cars since the nitro vehicles will oil down the track and hurt the karting a bit. We are only about 15 minutes from G-Force hobbies in Newport. Basically, we are looking for feedback from R/C racers in what you guys would like to see in a track. Carpet? Concrete? Jumps? Oval? Road course?

The kart track is 23 feet wide and 1/4 mile long, so we have lots of options. Our question is, if we opened our track to electric R/C enthusiasts, what classes would you want to race? What kind of course would you like? Any kind of feedback or help would be greatly appreciated. This is NOT spam. We are really looking to appeal to R/C fans and are very interested in expanding our racing. If any locals want to stop by and talk to us in person, you are plenty welcome. Ask for Chuck or Dave. You can Google our site for info on the track and our location (not enough posts to add links yet, sorry). And thank you in advance for the help.

I think the only thing compatible between the Karting system and the r/c system is the COAX and loop... ("might" be able to use the software??)

Most of the racers in the area have personal transponders... if they won't read, it will hurt you! I really doubt the electric racers will want to use larger heavier transponders then r/c house transponders.

There aren't many indoor tracks in the tri-state area right now... can only think of two. Unfortunatly you're close to both of them...

But, you already have the facility... just be ready come Sept, if you're gonna do it.
