The CSOR Track

About the track

CSOR moved to Kypeside in 2007 & started racing in a grass field, the track soon developed as new features were added. The club steadily grew & the racing really took off. The grass track was a lot of fun to drive on the dry days, but soon turned into a mud bog on the wet days, it also took a lot of maintenance to keep it in use. Over the winter of 2008, we cleared the site as the landowner had all the top soil removed & a new hard core base put in. During these works, the new track was planned out & the foundations were put in place for a low maintenance, all weather track.

Built in 2009, our latest track is one of the largest in the UK. It is fully covered in short pile astro-turf, this means we can race on it all year round. The track was built on a slight slope to help the rain water run off it & it also gives a better ‘drivers eye’ view of the back sections from the rostrum. Our track is modular, which means we can change the layout & direction of any section, without having to start from scratch.

Our current track layout gives drivers a 385 meter lap, around 50 seconds lap time & has the perfect mix of tight & tricky, fast & flowing sections. There are a good mixture of jumps, some are ramped & others are ‘kickers’, each has its own technique to get it right. They range from 1 foot to 5 foot high, grouped together as smaller doubles or larger single tabletops with different lengths of run up & gradient of landing ramps. We’ve had great feedback from visiting drivers from all over the UK, some rate our track as the best in the country.

There is ample parking/pitting & camping space trackside, with toilet facilities in the nearby clubhouse. We have a large drivers rostrum, built over our race control & trackside snack shop. There is a raised pit lane with pit tables built in, for easy track access & pit stops. We have mains electricity available for anyone that needs it & at the side of the track there is an astro covered lane for running your model to warm up and tune up your engine.

The track is open every Sunday, so please check out the calendar to see what’s on. Everyone is welcome to come along & try out the track, whether its for a track bash, timed practice or to join in our race days. If you plan on spectating…don’t forget your camera.
