On road

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
On road is a very, very small niche of this hobby, we seen on road tracks fail due tO the lack of support, the tracks in Hamilton did give it a go, but... Well it didn't go, cause there was no support. So my question is, will you support an on road track? Summer is around the corner, fastcats depot will be running there series, the off road outdoors will be in full swing...will an indoor on road track survive?

On road is by no means a small niche of this hobby... Its took its hits in the last couple years but its still got a very strong turnout in the right area. Not sure why its never had a constant following around the GTA but at Action we get 50+ entries on a club night... And that is just a small town in the middle of nowhere...lol

I would support an indoor onroad track if it is within 30-45 minutes anything more than that I have to be honest with myself and I probably would never go.

Last summer I kept telling myself I would drive down to Toronto to use the fastcats track at Homedepot, well...never made it, it's 1 hour away too much of a drive for me.

IMO onroad has been down and stomped on over and over but may just be experiencing a resurgance

The Canadian Onroad Nationals has a cr**load of entries. In Barrie, the Ideal Hobbies onroad racing gets a good 30-40+ entries EVERY Sat night and like Mike says, the NRC onroad which just started is getting a good number of guys out

I would race the tamiya mini class but not touring cars or 12th scale. It would also be really convenient if the races were ran in the evenings.

Also if it's a rainy season indoor would be really good

I would 100% support a on road track. but only for spec class racing to keep cost down. NRC runs two classes, blinky 17.5 brushless and a brushless open. and + 1 for a silver can mini class
