Details Truck and site

ICHIRINO RC off-road course is in Ichino-shi. Ichino-shi is located in the central part of HOKURIKU region, going to the North is Noto Peninsula, is in south west part of Ishikawa Prefecture, which is facing to the sea of Japan.
In HAKUSAN-shi, there are about 2,700m meters above the sea level differences from the shore region to the mountains. There is first grade river, TEDORI river, the biggest river in the prefecture, the sea of Japan known as write sand and green pine tree.

In ISHIKAWA prefecture, there is HYAKUMANGOKU (flourishing) castle town HYAKUMANGOKU Kanazawa, KENROKUEN garden which is one of the best garden in Japan, and NOTO peninsula, which is know as loyal residence and great nature.

It is convenient to go to the sightseeing spot in Japan. After passing SHIRAYAMA SUPER RINDO, you can go to the World heritage Shirakawa-gou. The nicest cities such as KYOTO or Nara are also accessible about 2 hours and 30 minutes by train from KOMATSU station, about 3 hours by car. It is very convenience place.

The track is the same track that we hold the 1/8GP Off-road all Japan championship in 2004 and 2005 but it is repaired and changed to 185m lengths, 3 to 6 m. We used the natural slope and the shape looks sugar loaf. The road is made from special clay soil, which is used for the Japanese roof tile. Therefore, we succeeded to maintain the high grip surface.

The driver’s stands are temporary. It is 2.7m high. The visibility is combined with truck shape .It is very good and does not let you feel 35m deep.
