Hi.

 

Bunnings near me has a large area in their carkpark, which for various entirely reasonable reasons they don't want me to use off peak to have a play with my radio controlled car in, but I wondered if anyone knew of public spaces or somewhere else I could take it in central Auckland?

 

Needs to be pretty large, and ideally have not too many pillars :-)

 

 

 

Cheers

Handle9: Indoor or outdoor?

 

Either is fine, though I imagine outdoor polished floors would be rare.

It's not concrete but there is a kids bike and scooter area in the back of Avondale with marked roads etc. It's also got a couple of old netball courts that don't get used.

What about the museum? Also check out victory centre in freemans bay. *EDIT* missed the polished.

Flat polished concrete required? Must be an F1 replica!

No, it's for drifting my electric radio controlled car.

On the corner of East Coast rd and Forrest Hill rd on the North Shore. There is a water reservoir that has a flat concrete top, and is almost completely buried (top is approx 1M above the ground level).

I see that someone has even painted a track for RC cars on it.
