EL Cajon Raceway has closed...


ECR

Slot car tracks are a lot of fun when they're open!  But unfortunately, the one thing that you can eventually expect is that they will have to shut down.  El Cajon Raceway (ECR) has been around for few years as a 24th scale shop, and they only started racing HO in the middle of last year.  But unfortunately at the end of this past April they had to close. So as they say: "Another one bites the dust".  It was fun while it lasted, and Tim the owner had recently installed two very nice custom HO Tracks, but I guess it just wasn't meant to be.  So all I can say is when you come across a nice slot car shop you should enjoy it, appreciate it, and support it or it probably won't be around for very long.  Nobody expects to get rich running a slot car venue, they're usually doing it out of love of the hobby and a desire to create a solid steady "Racing Scene".  But rent, utilities, and insurance costs money, and unless a shop receives good support from racers, the chances are high that it won't be around very long.

SCHOR: KATZ-SPA-RING - 6 Hour Enduro Results...

The SCHOR 6 Hour Super Stock Team Enduro on the World Famous "Katz-Spa-Ring" was a rousing success! We had a total of 18 racers divided into 4 Teams, and we raced four 90 minute segments. The Viper V1 cars were fast, reliable, and handled great for the entire race. The racing was fast and close for much of the race with several lead changes and a close fight for third place near the end.  Brad told us that this was the fastest race ever run on the Katz-Spa-Ring and that the track record for one lap is now *8.349 secs.
