A new RC (Remote Control) business, Rotors, Rudders & Wheels, has opened up at Market of Marion, 12888 S.E. US HWY 441, Belleview, Florida, just north of The Villages, and south of Ocala. It is located on the south side of the property and they have built a large off-road dirt track to run the cars on. Supposedly more tracks for different types of RC vehicles are in the works. They have a small store located next to the track where you can get supplies and repairs done. They also offer a selection of RC cars, trucks, boats and aircraft. It opened in February 2012 and already has had quite a few interested people trying the track out. They have built an elevated platform next to the track so you can operate your RC vehicle from an elevated position allowing viewing all around the track. Here are a few shots I took. It is difficult to photograph these cars as they are traveling upwards to 40-50 mph!
UPDATE: July 2012 They will start offical RC racing Sunday, July 22, 2012. They have just installed a computerized lap timing system, where each vehicle is fitted with a transponder to record lap times, speeds and other various information. It is a family run business by John & Robin Feola. Sundays will be race day, however the shop is open every day except Tuesday & Wednesday, with track access anytime they are open. Contact them at 352-502-1223 or 352-307-5131. E-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org Check out their web site for further details:
