Hi Bermbuster. The oval is concrete with BLACK mortar layed on top of it. Dave Graboski stopped by yesterday and drove one of the rental cars (ASF Rothmans Porcshe) that was completely BONE stock, even the tires that came with the car was stock.... he was able to click off laps under 4 seconds. The grip is very good to say the least even with stock tires and no suspension tweaking involved. The track measures 38' x 18". We will open the doors @ 10am on Saturday, please bring your own tables, chairs and extension chords. Below are some early pics, the store has WAY more stock and is currently OPEN FOR BUSINESS!!





Hope to see you on Saturday...

Hey Drew,

The track is really a lot of fun. I was really surprised with how much traction the track produced. I havent had a chance to try my own Z's on it but did get to wheel a slider around there. Open wheel with more then 3 cars would be tough to race with but man was it FASSSSSSSTTT!!! The car almost wheelies on exit and the tires squeel going in....Maybe the WEDGE body on the slider would be better to race with. I am pushing for a Micro T wedge class as well. As far as the safer walls, the painted wood is neat because its slippery and easily rideable, they dont sucked you in thats for sure. See you on Saturday....

BTW: Lap counter and RCP has been ordered. :P

Will you always have to bring your own pit tables and electricity or will that eventually be provided by the shop?

Is the RCP going to be placed on a flat surface? Or on top of the Oval?

THe oval is staying as is, the infield is what is going to be RCP. The oval will have a cutout so that you can duck into the infield.

I think the shop is open until 6 on SAT, but I have a feeling that we will not be turning people away from running if that is the case. So more then likely we will be there later. I will have the store owners come on and state a definitive answer.

I will be there for sure, from 12pm on....so feel free to bring me a body I will do it up for you.
