  • A New Track And Hobby Shop In Senoia Ga Opening Soon?

    I was surfing the net and came across another forum for Georgia RC racing. They had a thread for "New Georgia racing facility" They say it will be around Brooks or Senoia. It will include hobby shop, indoor carpet racing, outdoor nitro track, outdoor asphalt track, and rock crawling. Sounds to good to be true for us southsiders. Check out the link below.

      From what I hear, it's all true. They are currently in the process of building the outdoor off-road track and laying out the indoor carpet track. They are also in the process of stocking the hobby store. I'm a southsider that has been out of the RC scene for years but I'm getting back in now. The owner of the facility ran a 1/10 nitro off-road racing series way back in 1998 and 1999 on the southside that I ran in. The series consisted of about 5 or 6 tracks and all of the tracks were great. I'm can't wait til he get's done with the new facility....Now we just need to get the word out and make sure we support the track....

            I just talked with Vince and I came away pretty impressed.
            With any new venture you have to patient and supportive and I think that will be the case with this complex. But it sounds to me like they're head is definitely in the right place...
            They have done they're research and they are committed.....

                Yeah, these guys are all about business on this one. Definely a much better warm and fuzzy than Ricky and Thunderdome in Hampton. Ricky and his partner are saying that they're going to be up and running at the end of January. He's also in the process of relocating A&J hobby to the house that's adjuacent to the track. However even with all of that going on neither guy has even tried to reach out and communicate to the racers so we'll see.....

                  Ted,
                  So supposedly there is also going to be a track for racing built in Griffin beside Git-ir-done?

                    Dave he is referring to the Thunderdome Nitro raceway.
                    Its supposedly going to be on 19 & 41 in North Griffin (sunny side) at Malier Rd.

                    It is a pipe dream of Ricky Hambrick from A & J hobbies in Hampton.

                    We all hope that even this track comes about....... But so far nothing has happened.

                        O k I rode over to Brooks this morning and sure enough they is a track and Hobby shop going up. Looks like it is going to be super nice.
                        As I thoght it is only 5 miles from my house.
                        Within 500 yards of a great little store that sells food, beer, gas, Pizza and all sorts of other stuff.
                        Man I got a feeling this is going to become my home away from home.

                              I'm glad that this new track is not a mirage Boo Boo. This might be my new home away from home as well. I could pull the lair to work with me and leave early to run practice laps. SWEET!!
