Why not just buy 4 more lanes for Greg?

Why not just buy 4 more lanes for Greg?

Overhead for an 8 lane track, at least in our area, is way too expensive to maintain.

A 4 lane track is bearable. Hopefully.

I was joking. Greg has done a lot for this hobby, and its great that he is keeping a track open over there.

Where is the new track going to be located?

 

I just went by 2550 Nova Ave. in South Daytona and the place has a brand new "For Rent" sign in the window.

I'm guessing that it isn't going in there as was originally planned.

I believe that is the correct address. It's in a small plaza. Right side of High Fly Hobbies. The HO and 1/32 tracks are on the left side of High Fly Hobbies.

2550 Nova is in a small 6-8 store "plaza" located adjacent to another 6-8 store plaza that High Flying Hobbies is in.  I've gone by there a number of times and 2550 gets cleaner inside and a bigger better "For Rent" sign every time I go there.  I hope Greg does go there as it looks like a pretty nice place and it will be pretty convenient for me when I'm in New Smyrna Beach   It's also just a few feet from the best/only real hobby shop in town, which is a big plus.

From the angle of the pictures the track looks almost as large as the old Daytona track. Any chance that Greg can shorten it up by getting rid of that turn before the deadman where all of us out of towners lose a tenth per lap?

Well, with 4 lanes you will have plenty of marshals :) 

 

On the other hand, the races will take a lot more time to run :o

 

Have fun

We will probably run 4 heat mains. Maybe Go from 3 to 6 minutes per heat.

The 1/32-HO track is number 8, High Fly Hobbies number 7 and TRP number 6.

The dude in the reflection is looking damn good by the way. 😁

Myself and a few others are wanting to know the race order at the upcoming GRRR race at Fast Eddie's?

I like going in having a game plan.😎

I talked to Greg earlier and The Race Place is officially opening on April 1st.

Why April 1st aka April fools? Greg said he must be a fool for having another track again. 😉😁
