I live in Central FL and hope to race today at HTusa in Lakeland which is from 5-7. I am looking for any other mini-z races or tracks that would be in the Orlando Central FL area.

Count me in guys, I've had no luck in the past finding z-ers or places close by to race regularly. Hit me up by email or AIM and well race sometime, all in fun though.

I am in the Davenport Area so its even harder for me since no matter where I go I have to drive at least 30 mins to get there. If we can get a track setup some place in Orlando or find a hobby store willing to help us out then I would be there. I don't have the space avail. to hold races or even set up a track.

I feel for you with the whole driving thing... I just got an email back from my home shop (superior hobbies) and they said they have plans for a mini-z and micro track that should be ready sometime in may or june, so with that said the future holds a place for us to race but until then we can probably make due with garage tracks and what not, and i'm sure once the track gets up and running we can start up a club through the hobby shop. More info as it comes available....

it's the first link
they have a website http://warrickcustomhobbies.com/
I hope that link works. They charge $5 to use their track for 2 hours. I'm not going back untill they change the price.
they have races every Wednesday.

Five bucks seems reasonable........it looks like a great track. Several of us from Naples are going to venture over there and race. We hope to see you there. Do they have a point series? How many people show up to race?

Hello all, I too am a Orlando/Tampa racer. As for finding a track in the Orlando/Daven Port area, I know of none. But in tampa there are quite a few. I race at Hobby Town in brandon on a roofing felt like paper, and i also race at Hobbies 24 seven and they are now using carpet but had silica on plywood. There is also another one that opened up called Franks I believe out in Olsmar or somewhere off of Hillsboroug.
MitsuEvoVI, Can you please tell me what traction the track is made of and how does your car handle on it? And if possible can you provide a rough sketch of it with the diameters. thanks ;)

Warricks seems to be in Ft. Laud. about 30 mins south of me. 954 area code = broward.
Hey Se_12alty I go to hobby town all the time too,but to just look around because I only have an overland. You wouldn't happen to know of any places that races overland in the Tampa area. I really need to get a racer so I can start racing.
