We have all had great trips in our lives to great destinations, vacations, birthdays etc.
Usually great trips are long, but they are long for a reason.
The reason is it’s worth the journey.
 My vacation home is in St.Barths, it takes 2 airplane trips to get there, but it’s worth the trip, and so is the trip to Viper Slot car track in Thomasville Georgia.
 
Aaron and Bernie (aka mad dog) oversee an incredible place 4 hours south of Atlanta.
3 great tracks, a Blue King, an  Engleman and a Orange.
I recently had the pleasure of racing there.
 
Great tracks, great people, great racing, lots of fun.
Is it worth the trip, you bet.
Am I going back, yep.
 
So as I started out by saying great trips start out with great destinations, so now you have a great destination,  Viper Slot Car track, Thomasville Georgia.

We had a blast running the Tri-Flexa event last Saturday. What began as a race to encourage local participation has really expanded beyond our expectations! Drivers came from as far away as Atlanta, Macon-Warner Robins, and Pensacola.

 

Thank you for your kind words Clyde, we really appreciate your participation and look forward to your return!

When did you start running on Saturday. I only knew about Tuesday nights.

 

What are the times, classes and rules?

Eddie,

 

This was our annual Saturday race intended to drum up local participation. However, word spread and we drew drivers from more distant locations than we anticipated! All were most welcome and we had a great time. Aaron and I are discussing adding a regular Saturday race. If we do, I'll start promoting it in advance on Slotblog and social media.

Al,

 

Hugh has fit right in with our regulars and is proving to be a really tough competitor! He's a great guy and we look forward to his continued participation.
