Miami – Each November, Homestead-Miami Speedway crowns champions in all three of NASCAR’s national series during Ford Championship Weekend. This coming weekend, another title will be on the line at the Speedway, except this time on Homestead-Miami Speedway’s remote control (RC) track. On April 22-23, more than 100 racers from the United States, the Caribbean and South America will compete in the Miami Grand Prix, as they run their RC cars at speeds close to 70 mph on the RC track. South Florida will be well represented, as more than half of the field is comprised of local residents. Multiple ROAR (Remotely Operated Auto Racers) National Champion Paolo Morganti of Miami will be on hand for the event, as he vies for another Miami Grand Prix title.
Homestead-Miami Speedway’s RC track is recognized as one of the best racing facilities in the world and holds a number of big events, including the ROAR National Championship last November. Racers will use this year’s Miami Grand Prix as preparation for the 2018 1/10 IFMAR On-Road World Championship, which will also be held at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
