  • Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals

    RC Acres is proud to present its first 1/5 scale three day event, the Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals. In 2013 we ran our first 1/8 scale three day event, part of the RC Pro series, and it was a great success with nothing but large praise for the job well done. RC Acres’ primary goal was to provide a facility to race 1/5 scale at its best. And we feel we’ve come through. The track owner is a known motocross champion, putting some championship roots in to creating the track. The 2014 Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals will have three days of intense 1/5 scale RC racing with side events like the “Last Man Standing” race, and more. There will also be camping available on premises. RC Acres also has a concession stand on site. We will also be providing a Pig Roast for the drivers, as well as live Bands to end the nights. FOR THOSE LOOKING TO SPONSOR So if anyone is interested in what sponsor packages are available, please do not hesitate to contact me, and we’ll work on pulling through. All packages are not written in stone, and hopefully can be catered to your needs. Contact information below. FOR THOSE LOOKING TO REGISTER LINK TO EVENT ON RCSIGNUP.COM LINK TO REGISTER YOURSELF ON RCSIGNUP.COM Those looking to register will be required to sign up on RCSignUp.com. Please ensure to do your best to enter in your RC's information upon creating your account. The more information you provide, the quicker and easier it will be when showing up to the event. Once registered, please go the the event and register for the class/race you want to enter in.

      Practice for the Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals

      In answer to a few questions that came up: The 1/5 Scale Track at Walton Raceway is closed and under lockdown until Friday Morning of the Nationals for Practice.

      There are a lot of things being done, so the time is being used for construction and maintenance; but more importantly, as we have Racers coming from as far away as Quebec, Ohio and maybe farther, we want to ensure that no advantage is given to those in closer proximity. This is a National Race and we intend to keep it as fair and as in spirit as one.

      There will be lots of time to practice: 10am-6pm Friday; 8:30am-9:30am & 10:00am-12pm Saturday; 8:30am-9:30am Sunday during the Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals.

      Our apologies to those that may be upset that they can't get some track time prior... But for sure it will make it fair for everyone and that makes everyone happy.

      In answer to an important question regarding the Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals from another forum:

      Can someone please confirm there will be 'no sound restrictions' for this event? IE - un-silenced pipes? There seems to be mixed information on this.
      I can confirm 100% that there are no sound restrictions' for this event, i.e. - un-silenced pipes
