Lets hope the weather holds this weekend as there’s a lot of local RC groups with fun events planned. Spectators and newcomers are welcome at all of them but contact the organizers if you have any questions.
Friday 27th May – 6pm. The Halifax RC Drifters will be out at the parking lot behind H&R Block on Joseph Howe Drive. The parking lot is nice and flat, open with very few obstacles to hit which makes it a great location for those who’ve never RC drifted before. As the sun sets in the sky, the relistic headlights really make for a good spectacle. All the details here on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/533188603550630/
Saturday 28th May – 11am. The Vintage RC Halifax group are running the first event for vintage RCs expertly called “Brittle Plastic”. Those of us with older R cars know all about what that means. Vintage typically means something over 15 years old – but most slower RC vehicles are welcome as the track is nice and cosy at the Full Gospel Church on Larry Utek/Hammonds Plains Road.

Sunday 29th May – 2pm. The Tamiya Crew are hosting “RC Aces High” typically for Tamiya cars but open to everyone. Again play-racing will take place at the small off-road track at the Full Gospel Church on Larry Utek/Hammonds Plains Road so no need for high voltage high powered RC machines.

If anyone is even remotely considering getting into off-road RC racing, this is a great starting point. More information about Formula TT02B here: https://www.facebook.com/FormulaTT02BInfo/
