1/32 SCALE


The routed 1/32 track returns for its SIXTH season, This 60 foot lane length four lane layout returns as modified in 2017.  Straightening out some of the lanes in the esses has really worked out well making lap times more competitive.

September 6 – Our racers/slot car transporters were too busy over the Labor Day Weekend to move the 1/32 track in so that will happen on September 7.  In the meantime we will have one more race on the HO Track:  IROC MustangsI have two sets of HO IROC Mustangs to choose from and the racers who show up can choose either the Nostalgia Class notchbacks or the NJ Super Stock fastback 2+2’s.

September 27 Scalextric Box stock – In the past this was the High Impact class, however, since one of the reasons for this class was the lower price of High Impact cars to encourage more racers to try 1/32 and since Scalextric has lowered the price on its regular cars to $39.99 we will now allow any BOX STOCK one magnet Scalextric car in this race.  (Non open wheel) Silicones ?
