Club Directory Print E-mail
Most model car racers prefer to race at home on their own tracks with a few friends. If you lack the space for even a ping-pong table-size track or if you want to race on a variety of different tracks, however, you might want to consider racing with a group or club. There are hundreds of model car racing clubs in the world but some of them are groups who race very highly modified cars on tracks routed from wood or PVC. The model racing cars you see on the pages of this magazine are all designed to be raced on plastic tracks (although they can be raced on most wood or PVC tracks) from Scalextric, Sport, Carrera, NINCO, SCX, Riggen or Artin or the older Strombecker, Revell or Monogram tracks 1/32 scale tracks or Tomy A/FX or Mattel/Tyco HO tracks. 
The clubs that are listed here are groups whose main interest is to race out-of-the box cars and mostly on plastic tracks (although the club may also race on one or two hand-routed wood or PVC tracks). The group may have a modified class where extra magnets are allowed or different bodies. We try to NOT list the clubs that primarily race cars with hand-made metal chassis and clear plastic bodies---those clubs are listed on various internet sites or you can find most of them through the Old Weird Harold site at http://www.oldweirdherald.com.
There are also hundreds of dealers in the country that have operating tracks in the store. We cannot list them all, but you can contact the ones in your area from the list of dealers that carry Model Car Racing magazine on our website at www.modelcarracingmag.com. 
If your group races out-of-the-box 1/32 scale or HO scale cars, with only occasionally events for modified cars) send us the information at www.modelcarracingmag.com and we’ll try to include your club in the next issue.

HO Clubs: The majority of HO racing on a club level in the US is home sectional tracks, using hard bodies and largely stock equipment. The majority is Thunderjet focused, although many do run the Mattel/Tyco, Life-Like, Playing Mantis and G-Plus cars, these mass produced magnet cars tend to be utilized by small round robin groups of “Basement By Invitation” groups of friends. ---Gary Merrifield
There are some excellent clubs across the US racing basically stock hardshell T-Jet cars for the most part on sectional home tracks. This is only a partial listing. If you have an active group racing hard-bodied T-Jet-style cars, let us know at www.modelcarracingmag.com.
