    Arrow ARCR - Adelaide Radio Controlled Raceway



    Hello! fellow AusRC'ers.

    I'm introducing this club - Adelaide Radio Controlled Raceway (as a basic member) to let people know that we exist, for a start, and if you're interested in racing 1/10th scale off-road electrics on real dirt then now is the time to join.


    • We have our own track located at Mitchell Park Reserve (recently renovated)
    • We hold regular race meetings (fortnightly on Saturdays from 9am at the moment)
    • Membership is only $55 a year ($10 to enter a class)
    • Family friendly environment
    • Multiple classes and even a novice class for the young ones



    The classes we've run so far include....

    • 2WD Buggy (stock 17.5T and modified class)
    • 4WD Buggy (stock 17.5T and modified class)
    • 2WD Short Course Truck (stock 10.5T)
    • 2WD Stadium Truck (Modified class)
    • Junior Stock (mixed, but must be a 2WD buggy limited to 17.5T to be eligible for championship points)


    An online entry form is made available leading up to each race meeting and some classes are dropped if there aren't enough entrants to make it worthwhile. But we usually manage to get between 6 and 10 cars on the grid for every race.


    To apply for membership or if you'd like some more information then take a look at our website at www.arcr.org.au

    There's always a Facebook page too - www.facebook.com/ARCRInc

    Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage?

    Wishing you all the best Trav! Sounds like a lot of fun.
    Come to Lake Centenary in Temora to run your RC boat. Free BBQ's, power points, great amenities with hot showers, a childs sandpit/play area and lots of shade sails around the lake edge. It's 2km out of town, fresh water and gas boats are welcome.

    Ah cheers, the link is fixed

    We've had 2 very successful events so far. It's awesome having a proper timing system incorporated into the track now. I've been recording the race finals too, so I'll post up some footage.

    Nice! I'll be watching this thread. I'm keen to start a club here in Temora. I have bought 10 cars in the last 2 weeks and given away 7 off them just to get people interested.

    Looking forward to seeing some footage.

    Well, the local council is going to demolish our track at the end of the year to make way for a 'running track' that goes around the oval. It'll be sad to see the old track go as it's had quite a long history even before we revamped it in 2013.

    Thankfully, we have all the funds needed to build an entirely new track just 50m down the road

    Everything has been organised and sorted, so we should have our new track in time for the beginning of the 2016 season. Below is a link if anyone is interested in seeing some of our possible track layouts so far. I'll try to post some updates once some progress has been made.

    Got worried for a minute there, thought arcr was going the way of the hobby habit tracks. Glad to hear there is already something else sorted out.

    Keen to see how it comes together

    hehe...sorry, I couldn't resist.

    Yeah, it's going to be a new beginning for the club. Just being able to redesign the track without a whole bunch of trees in the way will make a nice change. A bigger drivers stand will go a long way too. Hopefully it'll bring back some old members and maybe a few new ones as well.

    Nothing like a big change to bring back interest, one day my 22 will be finished and i'll be out there.

    Well, as expected the council has thrown some spanners in the works which has caused some issues and delays, but it will be built and at this stage it's looking like February.

    Some progress has been made in one area where we're actually allowed to make some progress.....the footings for the drivers stand.



    And here's an image of the current track design which runs clockwise.

    Our new track has been delayed some more, but we've made some progress. The new location now has running water!

    We had a good turnout, with about a dozen members lending a hand. This is how good clubs are made: large amounts of hard work. It doesn't happen any other way.

    Another update. The new drivers stand was installed today, while we ran our race meeting.









    The next step should be truck loads of dirt/clay.

    The stand looks great. A new track build is an exciting time. What do you have on the floor of the stand, can you please post a pic as we are looking at different options to build a drivers stand at EMCC here in Melbourne.
    Thanks.

    It's the same style of grating that we used for the steps. The council insisted that the floor be open to allow rain to fall through and reach any tree roots that might be underneath it.

    Here's a better view....

    It's all coming together nicely. 500 tonnes of clay incoming....

    Time to spread that clay around. It may look like there are lots of large rocks in the mix, but they're actually just clumps of clay that break up easily.

    Looking great. This is exciting watching another new track getting built. Brings back good memories of building our EMCC track.
