Ardent Raceway is arguably the premier permanent indoor R/C facility in the country. Click on the picture to link to there website.

Ardent Raceway is located in Kings Newton, a small village just outside Melbourne in south Derbyshire. Its roughly about 5 minutes from East Midlands Airport which is 5 minutes of junction 24 of the M1. In an old farm building is housed a national quality indoor R/C Carpet track, well stocked shop courtesy of MB Models (www.rccarshop.co.uk) of Leeds and a Cafe.

Ardent Raceway caters for the 'Ardent RC Racer' but also for the RC enthusiasts. Running there own club night on Tuesday's but also providing Derby Radio Car Club's home on Friday nights. But it doesn't stop there, Tuesday and Friday from 13.00 is open for practice and 10.00 till 18.00 on Saturdays. Sunday they have a "BIG" Sunday meeting from 10 till around 3-4pm and then flying inside from 19.00 till 22.00. Catering for flyers as well as car racers.

Along with weekly racing, Ardent has been host to quite a few national event. Most recently the BRCA F1 and World GT nationals.




They also hosted the BRCA Winter Nationals and the Ardent winter series which is now the biggest in europe i believe. The next video is from the winter series. Andy Moore (2006 IMFAR ITSC World Champion, Multiple british champion) and Olly jeffieries (Another multiple britsh champion) share a car. GENIUS!




12th Nationals, Petit RC and the Team Durango winter series to name a few.

For the last two mentioned, Ardent converted the track into an off road carpet surface that looked epic.
Track design at its best. Ardent changes the track every now and then to shake things up. the venue attracts some very good drivers including Andy Moore but on the hand offers a friendly racing atmosphere too.

If you want anymore info, I'll try help best I can other than that click on the picture at the top and check out there website!

Thanks for reading,
