Universal Raceway Grand Opening! Toronto finally has a track!

So got a chance to sneak out and check out the new track for a couple of hours.
Made it door to door from West Burlington in 25 minutes (Sport # mode in my new STi...haha).

This place is awesome. Easily the nicest indoor track in Canada. 90' x 60' of carpet off road goodness. The layout flows well and the traction is sweet. Absolutely amazing place! Nice and bright, private rental pit rooms (or plenty of space in the regular pits). Concession stand, Timing projected onto wall, parts on site as well as their regular Hobby Shop across the street. Should be some sweet racing here for sure!

Back room has a drift track and space for flying Heli's and small planes

Front lobby with lounge

Measured the track at 90' x 60' Great first layout. Justin DaSilva laid down a 17.9 in 2wd buggy. My best was an 18.2 I think. Might drop the 7.5 in next time (versus my 9.5)

Universal Raceway. Sick new track in the GTA!

The guys at Big Boy's with Cool Toy's have been hard at work and in stealth mode keeping the details of the new track a secret until now. Opens this weekend! I stopped by there today and the place is amazing (from what I could see in the window). More to come when I can actually get into this bad boy.

Gonna be a fun winter!
