GLCC Goes Slot Car Racing!!

Ever thought about racing your Cobra but didn’t want to risk damage?

Did you as a kid race slot cars and ever wonder how to bring back that fun as a youth?

Well…we have both covered for you as GLCC GOES SLOT CAR RACING!!


Interestingly enough Slot Car Racing still exists today.  There are firms (Slot Mods right here in Michigan) that will build a custom replica of any track you’d like…just need a check. And there are tracks/car packages that can be purchased.  And world wide slot car racing is very popular.  And there are national competitions still.

But the existence of tracks where time can be rented dwindles.  There was one in Holly.  But they closed.

The good news is we found one of the few remaining Slot Car Tracks in Michigan!  Cloverleaf Racing in Highland.


Mike and I did a field trip to meet the owner and check out the tracks.  Two hours later we were convinced hosting a GLCC Slot Car Day would be fun!
