Samui Remote Control Car Club

If you fancy a bit of RC remote control car fun then you are in luck because there is a great track in Maenam where you can learn to drive, practice your skills, get purchase and service advice and meet other like minded enthusiasts on Sunday afternoons between 12 noon and 4-30pm.

The track was created by ex-pat, Guy Baker, who decided to build his own track when he could not find anywhere to race his cars on the island. A few other racers started to join him and the Samui RC came to life.

Club member, Noi ,is a bit of an electronic and soldering expert and very useful to know if you are in need of car repairs. If you have not got a car already then help is at hand. The club members do not only know where you can get RC cars they also know how to get you a great deal on models that can be shipped in from either Surat Thani or Bangkok. A basic entry level model with a radio can be purchased for around 15,000 baht and will provide endless hours of fun. Better models retail at between 40,000 and 60,000 baht.  The 400 meter soil track can be found on the left hand side of Maenam Soi 1 about two kilometers from the ring road. The club house currently has no electric so make sure you charge your batteries before you go unless you want to charge off your ‘adult size car’ battery.
