Located less than 1/4 of a mile from the world famous Las Vegas Strip and conveniently across the street from McCarran International Airport! Our facility is constructed on a 2.5 acre plot of land that is valued at over $20 Million which makes us the Premier World Class RC Racing Facility in Las Vegas, Nevada! Las Vegas is known for hosting some of the largest sporting events in the world such as the Monster Energy Cup, Monster Energy AMA Supercross, N.A.S.C.A.R., and Indy Car racing. We have easy access to our facility for racers from all over the world and our track is second to none. Over the last few months of constructing our track and facility we used the ROAR and IFMAR rule book to ensure everything fit within the rules to host national and worlds events.
RC Tracks of Las Vegas is honored and excited to host the 2016 1/8 Offroad World Championship. We have already begun preparing for the event. Once we were notified that Las Vegas was host of the worlds, we expanded the overall racing surface, added concrete walkways from the pits to the drivers stand, and purchased a larger office space. We are doing all we can to make 2016’s World Championship the best to date.
RC Tracks of Las Vegas office is housed in a 25’ x 60’ heated/air conditioned building. The office is located 15 feet from and also over looks the race track. Complete with four 13’x 13′ private offices, two restrooms and a hobby shop.
We have eights sets of bleachers around the track that seat 250 to 300 spectators. RC Tracks has an asphalt parking lot that will accommodate over 800 cars.
Located eight miles or five minutes west of the track is Southern Hills Hospital. This is one of the best hospitals in Southern Nevada.

Our 1/8 scale track dimensions have been increased to 195ft in width and 125ft in length after we were awarded the hosting location for the 2016 Worlds. Our layouts consist of 15 foot wide lanes with 4″ corragated pipe secured to the surface by 12″ stakes to contain the cars to each racing lane. The track layouts have off-cambered, flat and bermed corners with 4 to 6 jump sections per layout, ranging from doubles, triples, step ups, whoops, elevation changes and tabletops. Lap times range from 40 to 45 seconds in length depending on the layout. The dimensions on the 1/10 scale track are 75ft in width and 100ft in length.
The parameter of the tracks have a 4 foot tall chain link fence that is 5 feet away from the edge of the track. This borders the entire track and contains any runaway or out of control cars from reaching spectators or pit areas. We have imported 75 truck-loads of clay that has very few rocks. It compacts and holds together very well. The clay allows us to run it wet or dry. When dry, it takes rubber and grooves up well, giving medium to high bite traction without the use of any chemicals or additives, and does not break down. This insures equal track conditions for all qualifying heats and main events. Maintenance should be limited to leaf blowers and brooms to remove minor dust from the surface.
Located on the drivers stand we will have a Radio impound area. A race official will be present to ensure each racer puts their transmitter in our secured transmitter impound area. RC Tracks will ensure that our staff member in charge of the impound area is familiar
with the IFMAR rules in regards to transmitter impound and will enforce each rule.
Our drivers stand is 60 ft in length by 8 ft in width and constructed of two 20 foot shipping containers that support an 8 x 8 ft air conditioned and heated timing tower that overlooks the entire track. Newly added to the track is an on demand sprinkler system. At the flip of a switch, our race director can turn on 4 rain guns that spray a combined 400 gpm of water covering and watering the entire track in minutes. The stand also includes a shade covered and 3/4 enclosed drivers area that is 52 feet in length and stands 11 feet off the ground. It provides unlimited visibility and zero blind spots of the track to each racer. It can accommodate 15 drivers and each is allowed just over 3 feet of space to stand, this ensures ample room between each racer. We have provided two handicap accessible spots that give each wheel chaired racer an unobstructed view of the track. Also, the ramp and structure to access the drivers stand is within Clark County, Nevada’s compliance codes for wheel chairs and handicapped individuals.
Below our drivers stand is our pit lane. It is separate from the racing surface and has plenty of room for 25 mechanics. They stand on a concrete surface to fuel and service their driver’s car. The pit lane also has two 42″ tv monitors that show the timing and scoring. Also, we will provide an area on the back side of the drivers stand to access our 80 gallon air compressor. We have 6 spots available to blow off and clean your vehicle after each race.
Our facility provides a covered shade structure with a cement foundation. Currently we have 21 pit tables that have power and chairs provided for each. This provides enough room for 84 racers. We will provide additional covered pit space and electricity to accommodate the 150 to 180 racers in attendance. Also available in the pit area, is a wash station with multiple water faucets to clean bodies, tires, parts, etc.
Technical Inspection Area
We have plenty of space for our tech inspection area and have enough pit tables in the tech area to hold 30 cars.
RC Tracks of Las Vegas will have a fully stocked hobby shop on site to provide racers with everything from fuel, glow plugs, tires, rims, manufacturers parts, after-market parts, etc. Also, in the Las Vegas Valley there are four other hobby shops within 20 minutes of the track.

We have permanent men’s and women’s bathrooms that will accommodate 700+ people and are handicap accessible from the track. If necessary, we may also bring in several temporary bathrooms.
RC Tracks of Las Vegas has an asphalt parking lot with spaces to accommodate over 800 cars. In said parking lot, we will allow motor home and RV camping for the entire event. Each camper must provide their own water and power.
RC Tracks uses the AMB rc4 decoder box with Rc Score Pro National software at all it’s races. We have a primary timing loop with a redundant secondary loop and system as well. This will ensure proper timing and scoring to each racer in attendance.
Media Planning & Internet Access
Located 200 feet from the track is an enclosed area that faces the pits and track. This area will be used as our media room to accommodate all press for the event. Tables and chairs as well as internet will be provided. This space will be only for media and press to ensure they are able to provide the coverage and updates for each magazine, website or company they work for.
We have many hotels to choose from depending on your budget. I, personally, have had a meeting with Chuck Bowling the president of The Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino which is less than two miles from the track. They are interested in building a relationship with RC Tracks of Las Vegas and helping our racers with room discounts for all of our big events, including the 2016 IFMAR 1/8 Offroad Worlds. Also, less expensive yet accommodating hotels and motels are very close to the track located both on and off the Las Vegas Strip. We also have talked to The Mandalay Bay about hosting a drivers meeting and awards banquet at the hotel for this event.
The property has ample parking space for campers and RVs, but if needed there are many campgrounds and KOA’s to choose from very close to the track.
Las Vegas, being the entertainment capital of the world, has every type of entertainment you could think of. Our track sits on part of the Sports Center of Las Vegas. Which includes go-karting, batting cages, a playground for kids, golf, driving range and rock wall climbing. Also, the endless supply of nightlife, shows and gambling that the strip has to offer is within minutes of the track. Our guests from all over the world will find something for their families and friends to keep them entertained while at the event.
