I'm sure if you are a racer, you are all aware of how tracks and hobbyshops are closing all over the country. Online sales are a direct result of this. There is very little money to be made just from holding races. Here in the Seattle area we have lost 3 indoor tracks in the past year now. The latest to make the news closing is Warehouse 3 in Phoenix AZ. The bottom line- support your local hobby shop. They make money off parts sales and tires. Because of online retailers, kits are something hobby shops make very little off of. It's really elementary, no hobbyshop sales= no income to keep the track open that you ilke to race at. If you enjoy racing at your local track, buy your parts from that shop. Yes, you pay a little more at times, but you save on shipping in most cases. Remember though, hobby shop owners have families to feed just like you, so the money you spend there you need to think of going to a good cause and is insurance that you have a place to race at. Here is the link for the story on Warehouse 3 via LiveRC.com. http://www.liverc.com/news/special_features/10735-Warehouse_3_Racing_in_Phoenix_to_close_on_Saturday/
Remember RC Racers- Sponsorship application period opens on November 1, so email resume's to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are an existing team driver, send us your updated resume with the 2015 season to re-apply. Thanks and good luck everyone!
