Esperance Bay RC Car Club (EBRCCC)
« on: November 05, 2015, 02:08:58 AM »
Hey guys, i've been pretty quiet on here for awhile, so here's why : we've formed an RC club in town with several of the Bimbadeen Bash Crew taking key roles, myself as president and yeah it's a time consuming, often frustrating and in depth process to get it all off the ground!!

But we've come a long way in just a few months, with just shy of 30 members already! Currently we have a temp track at the good grace of the local Mechanical Restoration Groups grounds who we've done RC demo's for the last 5 years at their big fair days and have been very supportive of us.


We run 3 classes currently - 2wd SCT, 4wd SCT and 1/8 buggy.

We've aquired our own land through the shire which is awesome but now waiting on all the long winded paperwork to sign it over to our club, honestly a painful slooowwwww process. We will be AARCMC affilliated by years end and hopefully in the first quarter of 2016 can start building our new track and facilities, we all can't wait.

Also have 3 stage plans once the clay 1/8 track is built to also have a natural terrain 1/5 track, permanent crawler area and also crawler trailing loops, we've got a huge block of
35700m2 so heaps of room to turn it into a kick ass RC motorplex.

Local paper has given us some good exposure plus i've done 3 radio interviews now for different stations so getting the EBRCCC well known already within the town and whole district.

Our current track started as full grass but we've ripped it apart and now have a bit of trial clay in some corners to test before committing on the permanent track, carpeted jumps to hold together and it really is a mixed bag surface to drive on - sand/grass/clay/carpet makes tyre choice interesting.....lol.

Anyway enough yap, here's a selection of pics as the track has progressed and changed over the last few months.

Cheers guys, been a great team effort by the committee to get to this stage.

I can't believe the amount of phone calls, emails, forms, applications, face to face meetings etc i had in the first 3 months of starting the club idea, and our Secretary Kylie the same, it's a hard slog and how incredibly slow and overly complex some local and state govt. processes are is incredibly frustrating. 

Just becoming an incorporated club has been an over 5 month process already (which is meant to be 3 months) and still the final stage of the paperwork is not back to us, and this sucks as most things like funding grant applications, AARCMCC affilliation, our land application sign off at state level and so on all hinges off being incorporated, keeping us in limbo atm, useless c(@&#!

We still have a lot before us but almost all the shitfully boring officialdom side of things is mostly in the bag, then we can get onto the part we're all looking forward too - clearing the land and building a sick track and complex. 

We plan to base our new track layout and style off Silver Dollar raceway in the US, the track they had for the ROAR 1/8 nats this year was killer so we'll use it for inspiration, had big jumps but very cleverly designed so not too nasty if you stuffed a section up.

Hey guys I havn't updated this for ages but the club is still going well - but I was nieve to think all the hard work with paperwork was done. lol.

We got a 3 year lease on a huge block from the shire and then couldn't get a clearing permit after waiting almost 9 months for it!!!!  bang head  Was rezoned as a water reserve area without the shire knowing so we got f(*&^% over hard there, but now we have a new block lined up off a local footy club in a much better location so fingers crossed it all goes to plan this time....  So much work down the drain and a massive new lot wading through it now.

We are incorporated now and will be AARMCC affiliated by November this year when the renewals are up for another 12months.

We got some awesome clay on our current track for free from one of our new members which has been a huge improvement.  thumbsup

Here's some footage from late last year before clay:
