2014 Waikato Carpet Champs

2014 Waikato Carpet Champs

The Hamilton Radio Control Car Club is hosting an indoor carpet championship over two rounds of competiton.

From the event website:

The 2014 Waikato Carpet Champs takes the Hamilton Radio Control Car Club back to its old stomping ground of the late 1980's. The Waikato Table Tennis Centre and its painted concrete floor are remembered amongst many for teaching the arts of throttle control and the Scandinavia flick. But time changes everything and when we jump forward 34 years to 2014, you’ll see that the painted concrete is gone and, of course, so have the brushed motors and nicad battery packs. All replaced with carpet, brushless technology and lipo batteries.

The 2014 Waikato Carpet Champs sees some big changes for the Hamilton Radio Control Car Club with the introduction of a carpeted indoor venue featuring both onroad and offroad cars, racing over two, two day weekends.

Come and join the fun and experience something never seen in the Waikato before by entering the 2014 Waikato Carpet Champs. We can almost guarantee you'll love it!
