We’re Now on Summer Break! We’ll be back in September!

Important Information about this program

If the student is under the age of 13, they MUST be accompanied by a parent/guardian to the Slot Car nights! Please note that the rest of our building will not be open for entertainment (IE. No video games, gym area, pool tables, etc.). Wednesday Nights are for Slot Cars only! Please keep attendance to those who are actually wanting to race. While we do love small children, this facility isn’t geared towards them and they can’t be left unsupervised for any length of time.

So unfortunately, if your child(ren) isn’t interested in Slot Cars, we ask that you please find a sitter for the evening or opt out for the week. We know that this sounds harsh, but we don’t want the evening tainted for others who are attending.

A Message from Johnny Lightning:

I started souping up slot-cars when I was 14. I never liked how cheesy the factory model cars were. LOL! I had a neighbour (we lived out of town) who was on the same page! Many winter nights were spent soaking motors in rubbing alcohol to create continuity, and experimenting with different kinds of brush materials to see which one made the cars go faster. Racing and building truly has to be in your blood to enjoy this part!

My vision for this program at The Bunker is to draw a crowd of young people as well as adults, who have a heart to create, experiment, and compete in one of the worlds biggest motor sport hobbies. This is an extremely affordable hobby due to the fact that we’re using a 1/24 scale, and is extremely fun!
We want to create a safe and positive environment at this program, which is why we’re partnering with The Bunker on this!

I look forward to seeing YOU at the races!
