The EMSA Club races on 6 different tracks around the South Puget Sound area . 1 Scalextric Classic ,
2 Sport and 3 MDX Routed venues . All the tracks have a unique history and all have their own varied
racing personalities . I'll try to give a accurate account of each track , hoping it's close to fact . Also
knowing my descriptions my not be the gospel , if one feels the need to correct something , please PM
me and I'll try to make the proper corrections .
; Came into existence as a thought of Debi Kliman . With hopes of continuing the local
interest in the hobby . She felt there needed to be a track tied in with Fantasy World Hobbies . Thus
the Fantasy World Warehouse track was born . A large 20 X 8 table , Scalextric Sport Raceway . I'm
not sure it met the planed goals of the Kliman's but it was great for the club . Hosting many PSSRA
races, Proxy events and Manufacturing Challenge Races it got plenty of action .With our Buddy Dave's
latest move the track became available . Roger Ram Jet stepped up to the plate and purchased the
track .Roger was is in the middle of building a new shop , added a second floor and is now the tracks
new home. Thanks Rog !
; This track is a little different than most the tracks we race on . It's long and
narrow 4 X 16 and 3 lanes . It's actually Tim's first routed track , now residing at Blair's . It runs
about 50 feet . With several squeeze sections and tight turns , Masenchamps is a track that demands
patience , timing and vision . Always a challenge and a blast to race on .
; Well Vic's made the switch from Classic to Sport and it's just one more nail it the
Classic's Tracks Coffin . Pretty much the same layout , maybe about a foot longer . The best thing about
it is the elimination of Coy Corner and a couple other areas of unexplained offs . It's already better than
before and as it settles in with time and use it should do nothing but improve . Vic's also added a new
variable power supply , no more rocket racing . It's amazing what one can find under their tracks table !
; Tim's latest offering , it's kind of EMSA's Monte Carlo . The track every one wants
to race and win on . One of Luf's amazing creations from up north of the border . Tim was ambitious
enough to make the trek and bring it down to the states . Taking it from 5 to 4 lanes and a few subtle
changes in it's reconstruction . With it's long squeeze section and elevation changes Summit Archer is
one of EMSA's toughest venues . A picture is worth a thousand words.
; I'm not 100% sure on the Windsor . I've been told it was built in1965 . It has worked
it's way from California through Oregon . I first came across it in Port Angles . I was sent up there to
work one week and driving around town I saw Port Angles Slot Car Raceway . I walked in side and
WOW! there it was . I was still pretty new to the hobby and didn't know anything about the track or
it's existence . Fred was working behind the counter and told me that Maurizio would be at the shop
later in the week for a Slot -It race and I should stop by . I showed up and and all the Tacoma boy's
had driven up for the race , it was pretty cool . The Windsor now makes it's home at 1/32 Slot Car in
University Place WA . Alan Is gracious enough to host races for the local clubs , Special events , from
BRM and Scale Auto races to his 24 hour race . Alan is a true Ambassador of and for the hobby. We
are fortunate to have Alan right here in town .
CIURIT de PAVUR
EMSA's newest venue . I was out at Fantasy World a wile back and a guy
came in asking about slot cars and any people who might race in the area . Well one thing lead
to another and the next day Russ came over to my place to check out my track . We talked a
little about how the tables were made and how to lay the infield (Grass) and so on . I told Russ to
get some wood for the tables and legs and I'd be out in couple days and we could started . I got
out there and the tables were done the infield was down and Russ was ready to get to work on the
track . This guy is serious !
About a week later we had the track and started laying it out .
By the end of the day all that was left was the boarders . That was the quickest set up I've ever
been involved with . A great venue and as I've said before a little different layout than most 8X16
; at this time is under construction . Yes it was time to say good by to the
Classic track at Patlanta . With hopes of keeping one of the clubs favorite venues on the circuit ,
Tim's offered me his track wile plans are in the works for a New Roval .
