Taranaki Radio Control Car Club has been racing at the Paritutu Race Track on Centennial Drive in New Plymouth for 34 years. After all this time they have been asked to leave, as the property now has too much commercial value. The New Plymouth District council has been gracious enough to agree to lease the club a beautifully scenic piece of land in Fitzroy overlooking Lake Rotomanu and the spectacular walk bridge. With the new facility, designed similar to the one pictured below, the club will have a world class complex offering affordable racing to all ages and skill levels. This is a great sport, giving young people a focus and instilling qualities like attention to detail and pride. All levels of racing are available from club days to world events! The club boasts multiple NZ and Australian champions. We would appreciate it if you would consider donating towards this project. All funds raised will go towards the redevelopment of our R/C facility.
Our permanent outdoor sealed track is situated at the base of Paritutu Rock. Centennial Drive, overlooking New Plymouth Power Station and Port Taranaki. It is just 5 minutes from the centre of New Plymouth.
Off-Road Facilities & New On-Road Track:
Our Off Road site is located at Clemow Road on the opposite end of New Plymouth. It is located next to Lake Rotomanu and is just 5 minutes from the centre of New Plymouth.
We are currently looking for a new indoor venue. Check back soon for more details.
