This may interest you, this is the off-road club in Victoria. You could contact them for more info because they seem to have changed their racing venue recently.

Big Race Night
Thanks to everyone who attended Saturday's club race.  We had a good turnout and lots of close battles.

Big shoutout to Nick F for finally ending Brian A's reign on the TC class.  Nick is a natural wheel, and when he puts five minutes together, he is quick.  Congrats Nick!

Ryan Welch made the trip from the Lower Mainland to join us for racing which was great.  Thanks for making the trip Tiny!

Neil J was off the IR (shoulder) and back on track which was great to see!

The novice heat was really good once again, and we even had a brand new racer testing out the club car in practice (Ian/Cameron, please contact me on the website if you see this).

Special mention to newcomer Martin M for pitching-in in a big way during track setup and teardown!  Thanks Martin - it was noticed and appreciated.

Setup was super quick again at about 35 minutes.


Next Race is Saturday Mar 25
Doors open at 4:00PM.  We will run a full race program with three qualifiers followed by the mains.

Three dates remain: Mar 25, Apr 8, Apr 29

Fun Race Night
Thanks to everyone who attended Saturday's club race.  We had a smaller turnout with quite a few people out sick or on vacation.  Track setup was smooth again, although delayed a few minutes due to a lot of late arrivals.  Teardown was in top form as usual.

The Novices once again had a good night with everyone continuing to improve on their times.  Shoutout to Cameron H for doing incredibly well in his first ever organized RC race!  After trying the club car for a few minutes last week, he ran a full race night and improved each time on the track.  You could tell the muscle memory was forming already.  It helps being young!

Matthew C continues to up his game and he narrowly missed a 19 lap run in the 3rd round.  Great work Matthew!

Blair S experienced a breakout night with his 12th Scale, adding two laps to his career best and finishing 2nd in the B-Main!  Awesome to see.

Wendell C also went next-level by running his season best in TC, and making the A-Main.  His persistence with his car and radio setup definitely paid off, and the new paint was worth at least one tenth.

After missing a few races, Carter H ran strong in 12th Scale and had one of his best A-Main performances of his career with a killer hot lap too.

At the top, Nick F was largely untouchable again in TC, and Blake B, Craig R, and Tom Y showed that the old guys can still get around the track well in 12th Scale.  Two seconds separated these three at the end of the main.

Next Race is Saturday Apr 8
Doors open at 4:00PM.  We will run a full race program with three qualifiers followed by the mains.

Two dates remain: Apr 8 and Apr 29.

Big Easter Race Night
Thanks to everyone who celebrated Easter with IROCC on Saturday night.  We had a great turnout and lots of close battles.

Nick F took care of business again in TC setting up a dead heat with Brian A in the unofficial points championship.  Things could get interesting at the final race of the year on April 29....

Sean B had his TC working well qualifying 2nd overall but had an untimely traction roll in the main which cost him.

Matt S ran his best laps of the season, and had a chance at the A-Main bump, but unfortunately also suffered an ill-timed traction roll.

It was great to see budding airbrush artist Corey H back on the track after a long time away!  Thanks Corey for donating a spare 12th Scale body in nice shape to a possible new racer in the class.

Big shout-out to both Austen F and Mark L.  Both these guys have improved a lot in recent weeks.  We understand their pit crews put in some work since last race and it definitely paid off.  Both had career nights on Saturday.  Keep it up guys!

The novice heat was strong once again.  Benjamin W and Dominic M both showed flashes of brilliance after missing some time.  It was really impressive to see how clean they were running this week.

Finally, the perseverance award goes to new racer Cameron H who was not having much luck with his car staying together (through no fault of his own).  Finally, in the Novice main event, Cameron had a full run and he did super well with a third place finish.  Great work Cameron!

Final Race Night is Saturday Apr 29
Our final indoor race of the season is in three weeks, on Saturday Apr 29.  Doors open at 4:00PM.  We will run a full race program with three qualifiers followed by the mains.

Yes, the date is accurate.  The regular date was unavailable.

Awesome Final Race Night
Thanks to everyone who attended Saturday's club race.  We wrapped up our indoor season with a large turnout and lots of close battles.

Congrats to Craig R for doubling up and taking the TQs and Wins in both TC and 12th Scale.  Both his cars were working well all night, and he ran super clean and consistent in the mains.

Daryl J was very quick in TC and he managed to hot lap the entire field in the A-Main.  His car is fairly new to him and he's got it working very nicely!

We had a brand new racer Sam L joining us for the night, courtesy of Dan P.  I was really impressed with how quickly Sam got up to speed given that had never driven a TC before, much less participated in organized onroad racing.  Apparently crawling skills are transferrable!

Biggest shout-out of the night goes to Avery B for going above and beyond in the pits helping new racers get their cars setup and operational.  Avery definitely sacrificed his own wrenching time, and on top of that, he had spent the morning and afternoon travelling home from Texas.  I noticed a few energy drinks in his pit that night....

Summer Season begins Sunday May 28
The Summer asphalt season beings on Sunday May 28th.  Please see the featured post for more information:

Stay tuned for further updates as we are planning a track and van cleanup day, with some open practice as well.  More info to follow.
