My name is Jeff Harborne, I was a lorry driver up to 2016 when I had a stroke since then I had 2 more, which left me disabled. Now I have no HGV license and no one will employ me which I understand. So I had to find a hobby, remote control car racing was it. I am now up for a new challenge which is running a model shop with a RC club running along side. We haven't got one in Kidderminster. I put a ad on Facebook to see if people would like one in Kidderminster which 95% said yes. My aim for the shop is to carry all sorts of RC stuff and be able to advise people. There will also be a repair shop and I want it to be family friendly for all ages and we all like to win but my club is about fun, winning is a bonus lol. The club would also do after school clubs and I would love to get the disabled children having a go. People would be able to come and have play with there cars when no race meeting were on for a small charge towards the rent. People would all so be able to come watch race meetings. At the moment I do run a RC club which race on a oval carpet track, the formula's that we race at the moment are Bangers based on normal road cars which is contact racing so who can hit each other to try and win.
Then we have pickup racing which is not contact racing it down to being quick and smooth.
Then we have a great fun formula call flamingos which are 3 wheeled vehicle which are great fun to race.
Now we have the NZ stockcars which came from New Zealand these are metal stockcars which are very strong and contact racing like the bangers.
We will be having other formula's when we have done a circuit for them to race on like rally x, touring cars and buggies etc.
Now money raised would go to shop fittings, stock and to kit the RC club so people can come and try racing and disabled friendly.
