GTARaceway to open in April in Toronto

We are about 30-45 days away from finishing our 7-month build of the GTARaceway, a $100K 1/18th-1/27 scale track indoor track at Yonge and 407. This multi-level track features a F1/LeMans type road circuit, unique scenery, night lighting, animation and even a waterfall. Originally conceived as a Mini-Z/RS-4 Micro track, I would like to see if the track is wide enough (it's 28"-40 inches) and has enough "slide" for 1/10th scale drifting. If you are an accomplished 1/10th scale drifter and/or you have either 1/18th scale or 1/27th scale (Mini-Z) drift-specific vehicles, please message me and we can arrange for you to come down and test the track when we open. I am interested in feedback from hobbyists as to the suitability of the track for drifting, as my expertise (as the Porta-Trax designer from 2003-2010) is mostly with smaller scales and racing.

I've enclosed a few photos of the yet-to-be-finished track...so far I have over 1,000 hours of build time into this project. The rail and running system are unique and were developed with over 2 years of research. We are striving for scale authenticity with full-scale driving dynamics. - Lorne
