Oval Racing has returned to Indy!

Indoor RC Racing

Being indoor means we don't have a season. With climate control, we can race all year in comfort. 

Supportive Hobby Shop

Indy RC World features an onsite hobby shop filled with the products and knowledge you're looking for to enjoy RC racing. 

Promote and Grow the Hobby
