Exclamation We need A Nor-Cal Track.

I am trying to find a track or enough people to rent a bmx track for 1/5 scale events or something. I"m putting out the feelers to see if there's enough interest out there to put something together for us offroad gas guys.

I don't know where Winters is but if it's by Auburn fairgrounds I hear they are putting in a track for 1/5th racing.

Tavern, it is true. We are building a track in the Auburn fair grounds. We have a RC park there all ready and we are adding a 1/5 scale track. At the moment we are waiting for the rain to let up so we can finish it. This last rain cut a big ditch threw it and we have more rain coming this weekend. The plan is to have it up and running by mid April or late April,,,,,BUT it will happen. Sorry it took so long to get back to you folks.

We are taking a little more time to do it right so you folks that have to drive a ways will not be dis appointed. The fair grounds has leased the area to us and helps us when we need it. Once this track is in and up and running it will not go down unless there is a lack of intress.

Stay tuned I'll get more info up as we make progress as sonn as the weather lets us get moving again.

This is a links to the Auburn tracks and racing...hope it works.

Cheer's mates

Up date:

We have a work party that will be up at the track Saturday from 9am-5pm.

For those of you that are fairly close and willing to help we could use it.

If we can get a few folks to help the track will be done and up and running by the following weekend.

BTW: if you can, bring your RC trucks with you as we try and do a little running at the end of the day.

Call me if you need any more info,,,,,number is posted here in this thread.

If your coming up hwy 80 going to Reno get off at the New Castle exit. Go east off the exit toward Auburn, You will come to a stop light which is Auburn Folsom road....take a left
Go about to 2 miles and the fair grounds are on the right. The main entrance has a mini mart sitting by it as you go in, there is also a stop light there. I be leave there is a sign marketing the fair grounds all so.


If you can lend a hand can you let me know in this thread.....sorry about the short notice.

Thanks folks Kurt

Up date folks:

The track will be open to run a open practice play day on April 2nd next Saturday. If you go to the link in this thread for Auburn Performance we have a video and a couple pic's of how it looks, And yes we do have water for the track, We where just to beat up to day to water it. There was a lot of work that was done. Then we did do a little testing ;)

It's a 10.00 dollar donation for the day and you need roar insurance.

Track will open at 10:00 am to 3:00 maybe longer.

Hope to see you out there even if it is to stop by and say hi......

Cheers mates Kurt

July 2 will be the last shake down race before the season points chase. Then we go to the 5 race points chase with the grand final race for top dog.

Nice to have a track this far north for a change,,,,,,cheers

Damn how did I miss this until now? Great to see a 1/5th scale off road track up and running in the NorCal area. Couple hours drive for me one way, but I'll have to make the drive. Gives me a reason to dust off the 5B and go through it. Will this track run until the rains start again this fall? Looks like I need to pick up a Trackmate transponder.

Do to our winters being real light here in the valley they are talking about running threw the winter. Be nice to beat the heat as we all know.
If need be you can pick up a transponder at the track if needed.

If you go to the link I posted above it will take you to APR and the race dates and posts. This will help keep you up to date on what is happening.

Best tip I can give you folks if you should come out to race is to set up for a tight in field (Driver track). Big motor's at this time are over powered on this track.....but a good driver might be able to put a good lap time in. I few folks from down South found they where way over geared and to much motor for this track. But they liked that you had to drive it.....It really is to each his own, some will like it some wont.

Cheers Kurt
