Racing Season Is Upon Us!

Feb 16, 2012 No Comments by

Can you believe it?  2012 is here, and with February comes the kickoff for the summer racing season.  No, not lawnmower racing (but really, how cool is that photo?!).  While much of the country is still under snow and cold conditions, the Dirt Nitro Challenge will signal the year’s first major race next weekend in sunny, temperate (for now) Arizona.

We are just wrapping up our event calendar for the 2012 year, and it has me curious–will you travel to any RC races this year?  Or are you waiting for one to come through your hometown or region?  If you’ve never attended a big RC race, would you consider going just to see what all the fuss is about?

Let me know, I’d like to hear which races are important to you this year. With electric making a comeback in 2011, we’re expecting 2012 to be the year of the big electric races…but nitro offroad always brings in the entries.  I look forward to seeing many of you at the track!

About the author

Executive Editor I jumped into R/C back in 1987, when mechanical speed controllers and hard rubber tires were all the rage. Since then, I’ve experienced R/C in almost every state in the USA. I've built and raced every type of RC vehicle created, and traveled throughout the country (and world) to attend and cover more R/C events than I can remember. But what a fun ride it's been! I'm fortunate to live in Southern California, and I take advantage of my location by enjoying R/C outdoors year ‘round. Club racing is the future for R/C growth, and I’m always looking to bring new people into the hobby, whether it’s through backyard bashing or organized racing.
