HobbytownUSA National Racing Series

We are sending a very large RCP track to the founder of HobbytownUSA and he is putting it in the corperate store. The track will be a large layout using the wide lane system. The track will be set up for all day practice sessions with races being held every week.

When the RCP blank tiles arrive, we will be sending them to this store to increase the lane width for 1/18 scale racing as well.

Soon after, a second track will be constructed using the RCP off road tiles. The plan is to have 1/24 scale off road and 1/18 scale Mini-T racing at the store as well.

The idea is to have two huge RCP tracks set up at the corp. store and have all franchise owners from all the 160 stores across the US come to test it out at HobbytownUSA's annual conference meetiing. The hope is to spread the word about micro racing and to possibly get similar tracks set up in as many HobbytownUSA stores as possible. After the stores receive and set up their tracks, a national HobbytownUSA series may be in the mix.

That would be cool....but wait, our HobbyTown went out of usiness last year. It was just a hole in the wall with no space for a track anyways, and when they did 1/10 in the parking lot it really sucked, they didn't know what they were doing.

If I could afford to buy a franchise I wouldn't mind taking a stab at it though.

It'd be really cool, but my local Hobbytown doesn't have the space inside for a track, either.
