Byron On-road Nitro Challenge Photos

Well i finally made the trip to a new worldclass on and offroad rc racing facility here in illinois. Liesure Hours Raceway its a awesome track with large on and offroad tracks as well as indoor offroad racing for the cold winters we get here so you can race year round . The track hosted the Byron OnRoad Nitro Challenge . There was some worldclass drivers at this event and the racing and speed and acceleration these 1/10th and 1/8th 4wd onroad cars have is awesome to watch. Its been about 15 years since i raced in offroad competition but i still seen some familar faces at the track after all these years. One racer was there to watch because he races offroad buggy and truggy for mugen,another had taken a break for 7 years and recently started racing again. Im looking forward to the next big offroad event and id like to get more footage of the tracks with a camera mounted on my truggy and some other cool track video.. i am a rc heli and plane pilot to now so it could be interesting seeing things from above . The track is surrounded by farmland and big open cornfields.. similar to my normal flying site and i was kicking myself for not bringing my 3DHobbyShop extra 300 SHP or trex 450 heli when i looked at the surrounding areas at the track . Theres gonna be some big races at this track in the future as well and i plan on attending more.. maybe if i can get some track time i might start racing again .
