Shanghai International Model Auto Racing Arena

Some exciting news coming out of China where the Shanghai International Model Auto Racing Arena (SIMARA) officially opened recently. Designed to be one of the best RC car arenas in the world, the construction took nearly one year with the initiative spearheaded by Salton Dong. It features three different types of international standard RC car tracks, as well as special tracks for drift cars and crawlers. Sitting in the centre of the stadium between the offroad and onroad tracks, the large double-sided display has a size of 54 square meters, giving spectators and players an impressive visual experience. This arena is located in the Youth Activity Centre of Baoshan District, Shanghai and it will mainly serve primary and middle school students throughout Shanghai and will also be open to the public on weekends.
