  • New Toronto area Commercial Track/shop

    A couple of shots of the new tracks that will be in Ernie Mosettis' soon to be open new location.

    These shots do not show it, but, there is plenty of space for pit tables, store etc.

    Cheers

    A 6 lane Policar, 135Ft..............this will be for 1/32 plastic/scratchbuilt cars.

      The shop is in the North West of Toronto (427/Steeles),........and,....I seriously doubt a drag strip will be even considered,.........the last couple have just not worked out well at all,.....you will likely have to meet up with the the Bros. Mario somewhere else

          Steve Ogilvie built the road course and has a nice set of videos on youtube showing the construction.

            Wow, great looking tracks. Please keep us posted on the shop/track opening. With the pandemic still underway......its a heck of a tough time to be starting a new business. I wish him all the best. I got restarted in slots at Ernies shop/track up at Hwy 7/Weston Road. I even had some kids birthday parties there. Great memories. Cheers RvE

                With any luck, the shop will be open mid Sept........and, yes, with Covid certain precautions will have to be in place.

                Cheers

                    First, let me apologize for the really crummy pictures ...............progress is slow, in large part to Covid, but, progress has been made.

                    Cheers

                    The Policar track needs a few more borders here and there, and a good clean, which, until all the rest of the construction is done, is futile. It has good power, and will be a fun track.

                    The Ogilvie track has been painted (epoxy paint) and is currently being taped/braided..........first exploratory laps in a week or so.
