What We are all about!!
Velocity RC Raceway was born by racers that are very passionate about the RC hobby and racing in general. We looked around at the current trend for racing and have found that 1/10th Scale off-road on indoor carpet is becoming the predominate sector of our hobby.
We are racing on grey ozite carpet and use slick style tires(Proline Primes are an example). We have found this to be the most economical to the racer as these tires will last a very long time.
We are also using a Mylaps scoring system. It can count all of the various forms of Mylaps transponders available on the market. We do have a few units to rent for new racers, but you will be required to have your own.
We’ve set out to provide a warm and welcoming environment and location for both new racers and seasoned veterans alike. With the versatility and simplicity of Carpet, we will be able to support not just 1/10th off-road racing, but also include some of RC’s smaller segments that would like to have a place to run their machines.
Our goal is to grow RC racing in Calgary and help strengthen all the different clubs and facilities in and around Calgary. We will be focusing a lot on bringing new people into the Hobby and helping them out, so they can love this sport as much as we do.
You will find that we have classes to suit every skill level of driver, while keeping the costs affordable for everyone.
We look forward to accommodating Calgary RC racers and hobbyists for a long time to come. We are always working on expanding our hobby, so if you feel there is something that we could do better, or a segment of the RC hobby you would like to see included at Velocity RC please feel free to drop us a line on our contact form.
Remember keep her shiny side up and always have fun!!
