Yes, you read it right, RC Racing and Sports Complex is opening a carpet oval and road course track in the very near future. The track will be located at 7868 Groveport Road, Groveport, Ohio. Phone #614-778-9691. Website: www.enhobbies.com. They have an outdoor offroad track that is opening up tomorrow. They have a hobby store at the Gender Road Shopping Center, south of the Kroger Store. Brad, Dave, Christie, Tom, and Mrs. Dutton would love to hear from you. I have talked to them this week and they are very, very serious about this project and are moving very quickly to get the carpet and other essentials in place. What a breath of fresh air to have a local track close by again. Later, Jim Workman

Hi guys, I'm new here and I've been looking for something near Columbus! This is great news! I raced in FL about a year ago, and raced for quite a few years back in Phoenix, and I'm itching to race again.

The last time I raced was 4 cell 10.5, but I'd like to race Lipo now, any idea what the classes will be here? I'm not totally familiar with the Lipo rules, so I'd need to know what to get to be ready for it!

Thanks for any info, I'm really looking forward to this!

Mike

Nothing is set in stone as of yet, but I would follow BRL Rules to play it safe. Welcome to the area.:wave: Jim

Any rough idea when the carpet will be down? It's just my luck that I will most likely be moving in the beginning of November back to FL, so it would be nice to run a couple of times before then if possible!

Do you guys know if the shop has much available for pan cars yet? I'd rather buy from there right now than order online. I stopped by on Sunday, but they were closed.

Thanks!

Hey Mike, sad to hear that you will be going south. I don't what distributors they are dealing with right now. Give them a call and maybe they can assist you. Hey Gabby, that's great to hear. Can't wait to run with you on carpet again just like old P R times. I may be finished on dirt for the season. Later, Jim

I think I need a little break before the carpet season begins. Feminine influence might be the cause. I really had a great time this summer and looking forward to get on the "huge hoop" next summer. Can't wait for this new track to get going.. Later, Jim

Hey Jim, that's what friends are for. Man, I can not wait for this track to get up and running. From the looks at the number of views on this thread it looks like other racers are keen on running there as well. Later, the other Jim....
