Doug, I have some pictures of the track in Denham to give you an idea of their setup.





And here is Rob and his buddy in the tent; a lot of the guys had their own tents.

doug- there are quite a few things to think about when opening a rc track. One they are costly and more labor intensive than a paintball field.
You need plenty of land, plenty of parking, and power to the area arround the track.

If you have questions shoot me a PM. I have been racing these cars since I was 4. I know lots about them and about racing.

so far there are tons of tracks arround.

this past weekend we had a state series race in St. Rose. there was 125 entries at 20$ a pop. There is money to be made if you can do it the right way.

Rob will probably agree with this...

If you get an indoor place, and do it right, you'd make some dough.
