Exciting times ahead for Scotland, Glasgow RC have announced a new outdoor facility venture. Please support if you can.

Recommended Posts

Been lucky enough to be involved with the Glasgow RC Club for a few years, cracking bunch of RC nuts.

If anyone would like to support us, donate if you can. If not, we would like to see you at the track, and you all know, tamiya's are welcome 😁

The ambition is to have a similar facility as Robin hood Raceway, without the 500 mile round road trip! 

Set in, Calderglen Country Park sports complex, we have the use of the Bar, food and toilet facilities, plus the Zoo, huge adventure play area etc that are set in the Country Park, making it a great family day out.

A link for Calderglen Country Park, itself (didn't realise it has an 18 hole golf course too! 🙄

Count me in! This would be amazing. Even though I stay in East Lothian this would be something special 👍🏻

Brilliant @Seanster43 !!

I'm going to organise some Tamiya days, like @neowhizz did at the indoor track at Ayr, nothing serious,  just a fun day running tamiya's (Or whatever tbh, just no IC).

Some of the guys are on a podcast next week.

Been a while since an update, and with the current world situation, not been as spritly as we'd hoped.

Anyway, land drainage has been dug,  and now onto track sculpting! 

Plus, this has just arrived....😁😁😁

With a couple of us being tamiya nuts (I think most people have had a tamiya at some point!) ,we are hoping to have meetings similar to they have down south ,with @tamiya monkey at Robin hood Raceway and the Tamiya Junkies, but without the 500mile ,8hr return drive. (Hoping the distance will mean ,we're not treading on anyone's toes).

Great to see other groups coming online, looks like your going to do well, might even make the trip up to see you guys when your up and running.

 

Keep it up, get together to make this work.

 

Regards

We're putting together a list of places to stay, places to eat, what activities and family events are on at the Country Park, as we know what it's like trying to get away racing for the weekend! 🙄😁
