For those who are not aware of the history of the land, back in early 2009 when the club was desperately looking for a place to build the track, and after getting rejected by town of Ajax and the Ajax flying club, Jim at Bedwell movers was able to offer the use of his vacant land in Bowmanville. Although we were aware that this land was for sale, we could not pass on the opportunity to finally establish our track.
Bowmanville track-build was finally completed in June 2009. Since then we were able to provide the Durham RC community with a unique opportunity to take advantage of a local track. We held point series races for three seasons and served several hundred members.

We are lucky enough to be able to complete our 2011 point series before the ownership of the land is handed over. We would however like to minimize the usage of the track after the October 15th race day.

Please note we havenít given up and are actively pursuing other land opportunities with-in the region.

We are also looking for volunteers to assist us with the track tear down and clean up after October 15th.

Many thanks to all those members who supported us throughout the last few years and those who helped us establish this club.

This is very sad news, indeed.

But to quote : "Please note we havenít given up and are actively pursuing other land opportunities with-in the region. " ... so there is hope !

I have enjoyed Racing with everyone at Durham over the past 3 years, and would like to think that I have made some new friends and aquaintances a long the way.

Thanks to all the Durham Board, the members, the DORC's, the NERDS, the Land owner, for all the great times !!!

I hold out hope that you are able to secure a new location in the region and get things back up and running next year !

In retrospect, we have a transponder system and some other assets, so not all doom & gloom, fingers crossed.
It has been a good time, tons of good peeps, new & old...

** Good News ! Track Update **

We are pleased to share the latest news regarding the DORC Bowmanville track. We have been closely monitoring the sale of the land in order to determine if we can potentially come up with some sort of agreement with the new land owner.
We have just learned the people involved could not reach an accord and sale of the land has fell through. Jim's intent is to allow us to continue with the lease of the land during the 2012 RC season.
We are looking forward to a great season in 2012 with hopes that you will all join us again. We would also like to thank all of you who were actively involved to help look for a new place to call home.
Please keep in mind, this land will still be for sale and could be sold at any time. We will do our best to keep everyone informed as we have done in the past.
