I heard the Gator Retro was coming to Avon Park. Any truth to this? Would like to get into Retro if they did,
I mean it is the nicest and fastest track in the state, not to mention the biggest.

There are no current plans to run there. We have never had any contact with the owner at all.

That being said all we have heard about the place is there is very little pit area, and the interest was strictly wing cars.

His interest is making enough jack to pay rent which makes sense.

 

BTW how do I get a GRRR car, Tony?

Mark,

I only sell chassis here mostly through Slotblog. If you wanted a ready-to-run contact Noose as he uses my chassis in the RTRs he sells.

Mark,

 

We carry Retro car parts here in Pinellas Park at Fast Eddie's, if you're interested in running a fun class that you have to drive a little more than wing cars.
