RC Acres RacingRC Acres Club in Hamilton is home to one of the most regarded Outdoor Fifth Scale Off-Road Tracks in North America, and has just completed construction on its INDOOR 1/8 and 1/10 Scale Off-Road Thunderdome! 

Big Air, Fast Turns and a 44-second Lap-time (approximately 1.5 Kilometres of Raceway) are just a few of the things to be expected from a RaceDay at RC Acres Club's Outdoor Venue.

Spectating is always free, photos and video are always exciting to capture, and the racing is always larger than scale.

Joe Scully, ProRodeo MC will be the Race Director for this Race... expect rocking music, engaging commentary and a new flair on Race Command.

Located on Highway 5 west of Highway 52 outside Hamilton.

This event is weather permitting! Connect with RC Acres on Facebook for on-going updates.
