Check this out, for all of you hoping to get some regular running in at the Halifax RC Park. A member of the RC Community is putting together Wicked Wednesdays.
Wicked Wednesdays RC Racing
“Join us Wednesday July 27th at 1900 for some fun three lap shoot-out style “run-what-ya-brung” racing.
The Halifax RC Park is located at: 1703 Beaver Bank Rd, Beaver Bank, NS B4G 1C5 (https://goo.gl/maps/npPBR)
Never raced? Don’t worry, it’s all for fun, so no need to be intimidated or worry about having “racing” vehicles and equipment. If you have a 1/8 -> 1/18 RC vehicle capable of driving on dirt you will fit in!
The goal is to have regular fun-filled, family-friendly weekly or bi-weekly Wednesday night events at Halifax RC Park (HRCP) and possibly other tracks around HRM.
Sufficient numbers permitting, we will hopefully break down the heats into SCT (Short Course Truck), 1/8 buggy and some combination of 1/10 buggy and/or other.
Ideally we will run 10-15 minutes of one class and alternate to ensure everyone has a chance to run and we have a few people to marshal (aka get vehicles back on the track if they have had an accident). ”
More details at Wicked Wednesdays.
I am looking forward to attending, this should be a blast. See you at the track.
The next Sackville RC Play Day will be July 23rd, at 11 am. We hope to see you at the Halifax RC Park. Come on out, run some races, meet some new faces,
have a hot dog and have a good time.
*** UPDATE: Sorry. There will be no BBQ today due to the potential for thunder storms.
We have a blast at the Halifax RC Park today. Congrats to Havoc for winning the first race on the day.

Check out the pictures and some on board video from the days events. Continue Reading
That was so much fun, we are ready to do it again. This Saturday June 11, we are headed back to the Halifax RC Park. This week we are going to try later start time of 11am. We are also going to try and run some 3 lap races at 1130, 1200 and possibly 1230. Winners will receive a food voucher which will be good for either a hot dog or drink. The Halifax RC Park Committee will again be on hand to raise money for the RC Park through food sales and donations. There will also be an assistance table set up where you can ask RC related questions. Hopefully the weather co-operates and we can have another great outing. Please take a minute to read the Rules of the Halifax RC Park.

This video was taken on our backyard track. You must do two infields and one oval for a total of three laps, the first one across the finish line which is underneath the edge of the deck wins. Pay attention to the finish.
