We will be re-opening the fastest track in FL with a newly-renovated clean child and adult friendly envoirment, fully stocked with all your slot car needs. Rental cars and controllers for beginners and all parts for racers' needs. We will be having all classes of racing for all cars, coordinating with other FL group racers from the three other tracks in this state.

 

We want to thank everyone who has kept this sport alive and kickin' for the past years and helped with the track re-opening.

 

This will be a family-friendly track. Working on expansion in future towards many other classes of racing.

Mark, I hope to stop by and check out your raceway. Rentals and birthday parties will pay the rent.

 

Will you be having any series races with GRRR, etc?

Best of luck!

 

If you fix the braiding (no nails or staples) they will come.

Mark Ferree /  Mark Conner:   Just a friendly suggestion...

 

It would be great to meet you (both?) at the Retro Rumble race being held at Fast Eddie's in Pinellis Park Sept. 28-29.  It will certainly be the largest race in Florida this year and you would get to meet many of the Florida racers as well as getting a first-hand look at what is happening with IRRA Retro racing.  You would also get a chance to talk to other raceway owners and maybe work out a common set of rules for your local racing.

 

Again, just a suggestion but IMO probably an opportunity that a new raceway owner shouldn't miss.

Great idea Jay!!!

 

I also hope they have a Wednesday night race of some kind when I go to Sebring next March!!! I'd like to run on the track. Wishing the new owner/owners the best of luck!

I just searched for your facebook page but couldn't get it in the results of the search.

Has anyone else been able to find it?

Gents i in no way a owner or operator. Just hoping a flexi series starts to come here as I no longer have an interest in wing cars.
