Welcome to CMR.

Located only 20 minutes from Wellington CBD in Wingate, Lower Hutt. CMR has some of the best RC car tracks in the country. We are a small growing club and welcome new and returning RC racers into the sport. We race offroad on the 1st Sunday of the month and onroad on the 2nd Sunday, with the 3rd and 4th Sundays reserved in case of rain. There are people at the tracks on most fine Sundays and we welcome spectators and non-members to join us. The forum and facebook group have more detailed information and upto date race day details.
