Hi,

New here and to the R/C community. My Son is starting out, currently has a rock racer and a rally car coming for Christmas. Would like to bring him out to the odd practice night. Where is the indoor track and are you still holding practice nights Wed/Thu?

Currently in the stages of moving to a new facility. The new facility is in the Keating area, not sure of the exact address. It is on Sean Heights off Bryn Rd., which runs off Oldfield Rd. just south of Keating X Rd. We should be up and running by Dec.10, the schedule should stay the same as the existing schedule for race  and practice nights.
If you haven't already purchased the Xmas present, check out the facility first. There may be some used equipment for sale and there is a hobby shop on site.

Hey all,

Monday Dec 4th will be the first "track setup" night at the new facility.  I hope we can get the carpet and driver's stand installed that night.  Come on by 3pm and beyond that night and help.

300 - 1779 Sean Heights
Saanichton, BC V8M 1X6

The location is in Keating.  From the Pat Bay Highway (17) go west on Keating Cross Rd, then South on Oldfield Rd, then East on Sean Rd, and follow North and East onto Sean Heights.

Hi all,

There is no club racing this Saturday night (Jan 13), but Paul is organizing a work party for Sunday morning (Jan 14) at 10:00AM to flatten out the floor at the track and do some general cleanup before we re-install the track next week.

See ya there,

Hi all,

Club racing returns to Matrix tomorrow on a freshly poured flat floor, grooved-in straightaway, and a new track layout.  Q1 goes at 6:00PM as usual.

See ya there,
Blake

Club racing is on for tomorrow Saturday Feb 3rd.  Q1 goes at 6:00PM as usual.  The track is really nice right now with the nicely flattened floor, and good grip everywhere!

See ya there,
