February 2019 Off Road club race

8th scale Buggy class:

The biggest surprise of the day was the performance of a newcomer, Benno Spangenberg.  He showed up at the track only once or twice in the past few weeks, acquiring only a few hours of practice. And then he entered an official race with drivers with many, many years of experience.


About Us

It all started when Hendry received a nitro HPI Savage Monster Truck for Christmas 2007.  Were he and his wife was invited to share a family gathering in Secunda.

Hendry’s brother – in – law, that invited them, would normally take out his RC car during our hot and sunny weather in SA’s festive season and race it in the street that he lives. Being a collector of classic cars for many years and owing about 12 cars, Hendry never got around getting himself a remote controlled car.  But because Anette’s brother had one, and Henry’s wife didn’t want him to stand and watch her bother playing with his RC car, with him not being able to join in the fun,  she got him his first RC car that Christmas. Within one week after Christmas, Hendry went and got himself a Mercedes on road car as well. The
rest is history…. He was hooked!

“I had a lot of fun driving these two cars up and down my paved driveway, but soon got tired of hitting trees and parked vehicles in my own yard. I then took my lawnmower and cut myself a very primitive “track” on my adjacent, empty plot.” Hendry Ogden

Hendry managed to steer the Savage on the path through the long grass and existing humps and enjoyed it more and more. Passers- by noticed what he was doing and asked if they could join him. The result was that the path through the field became wider and longer, until he decided to find out what a real off road track’s dimensions should be. Anette and Hendry then started to use every opportunity to go and look at every track that they have learnt about. They also surfed on the Internet to gain more knowledge about RC tracks.   At first they found it extremely difficult to obtain info about specs and such, but we soon found the Internet to be an inexhaustible source of information. There biggest obstacle was to know how to use the search engines.  Many nightly hours in front of the computer and many months of hard labour later, a proper off road track was built.  Six months later they started an on road track that also includes a drag strip.  It was completed within 4 months.
Then the 2.4 meter high and 12 meters long driver stand then came along and so did the toilet facilities. We now gladly share this with the community.

The on road track is 4 meters wide and has a total length of 225 meters.
The off road track is 4 meters wide and has a total length of 348 meters.
The drag strip is 46 meters in length.

Both tracks are now affiliated at SARDA
