Anyone else have an R/C car or truck, and not know of any organized racing on the Island? Well there is! The Red Clay R/C Racing Club is getting geared up for indoor racing this winter.

We've got a great new facility in the Waterfront Mall, Summerside. We try our best to schedule our events every two weeks. Everyone is welcome to attend, and we're hoping to attract some new racers to our events.

So if that Rustler, T4, Stampede, Slash, or RC18 has been collecting dust, pick it up off the shelf and come on out for a fun afternoon! Cost for racers is $10 for the afternoon, $5 for those 12 and under. Spectators are free!

I'm posting individual events in the Events section of this forum. The next two events are Dec 6 and Dec 20, from 12:00-5:00. Hope to see you there!

Does redclayrc.com have a facebook group?

The ability to mass message your fans would be awesome.

Not as yet, Chris. I'll bring up the idea with the guys though. :)

For what its worth, I would join the facebook group if there was one. But man, I just can't get into that ning network.



Everyone should check out the racing, if you like racing, it's 1/10 the cost of real racing but 1/1 fun.

Next race is this Saturday, Jan 9, from 12:00 to 5:00, beside Home Furniture in the Waterfront Mall. Come on out and watch! We have proper race carpet (Ozite Daytona) in transit, we hope to have it in time for Saturday's race. :)

Fee for racers is $10 ($5 for those 16 and under). Spectators are free.

It's been a while, but we're partway though our outdoor racing season, with lots of great racing action still to come. If you are interested in R/C Racing, now is the time! Our next scheduled race is Saturday, July 3, at the Red Clay track located behind Great Hobbies, 17 Glen Stewart Drive, Stratford.

We also have several big events just on the horizon, including an on-road oval at the International Motoring Festival, the Great Atlantic Invitaitonal, and the final Atlantic RC Pro-Series race of the season.

If you have a radio-control car and want to race, or if you just want to come see what R/C racing is all about, please check out our new website at http://www.redclayrc.com

Here is a video from last year's R/C Pro-Series Race.
