West Ottawa R/C Speedway


Boggity boggity boggity?

That’s right! Lets go racing. After many months of construction and weeks of testing. West Ottawa R/C speedway is ready to host formal race nights.. First race is this Thursday August 20th

In case you missed the new forum section here is a quick summary of what Kirk has created:

The facility we will be racing in is a 1600 square foot shop, located on my property, at 154 Wilbert Cox Drive, which is about 2 minutes off the 417 at the Carp Rd exit. The shop is equipped with heat, 12 foot ceilings, 1- 8 foot bay door, and 1- 10 foot bay door as well as a side door for access. The track itself will be roughly 40 feet X 30 feet, and will be a scale, banked D-shaped oval (to start with), 8 foot wide lanes with a flat apron, painted lines etc. Track surface is still to be determined, but it will be permanent, so the only thing you will need to do is set up your pit . There will be easy access to a washroom, we have a barbecue available for anyone that wants to use it, and the local pizza places know where we!!

The plan is to race weekly on Thursday nights, doors opening around 4:30, racing starting around 6pm and hopefully done around 9:45-10:00pm. We will be posting the full schedule in a few weeks.
