Very cool glad to hear it 8)
Its nice when you have a place you can go with 1/5 its kinda hard just picking out spots especially when the towns don't really want you running them in certain locations..

If you head down there see if they would be interested in joining up on the forum then you guys could keep things together and post up events, etc..



For those interested I looked up their Facebook Page :D

Looks like there were about 5 largescales out for the first race...

The owner is starting construction tonight to make the track more 1/5th friendly.

I'm planning on going Thursday to practice and racing 1 week from this coming Sunday.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I stopped by the track tonight and am very excited about all the 1/5th interest..John the owner and at least 2 of his friends are ordering 1/5th trucks next week...there could be 10+ trucks on a regular basis...

The track has been modified for 1/5th trucks, with some more changes this week to make the track alot bigger...

If you want to race this is it...

On the 4th of July we are having a grill out and race.

We might play bags and whatever other game people bring.

Then after dark we will have front row viewing for the grand Geneva firework show.

Let's get a good 1/5th turnout for this.
I heard the race may be a trophy race.

Hey is the oval track I saw they were working on done?
No...they want to make it bigger and do a figure 8 also..
Its fun as is...just a little smaller than most ovals..

The offroad track should be done completely by the race on the 4th..

I need to get my junk running then...
You should....this place is supporting Largescale and they are making track improvements for the 1/5th guys...

John,the owner is opening a Hobbytown less than a mile away in August with full part support for the Largescale trucks.....

There has been a 1/5th class every week with more racers on the way....
