About Oslo Modellbilklubb:
One of the biggest RC-car clubs in Norway with 170 active members. The club was founded in 1977 and has one of europes finest fascilites. There's a trial (motorcycles) club, ATV track and a Motor Centre run by the municipality on the same area. As to placement we do believe we are second to none. It lies in Oslo which is the capitol of Norway. There are only 5 million inhabitants only in this large country.
There are three RC car tracks at Hvervenbukta:
250m long asphalt track
200m long 1:8 OR clay track
150m long 1:10 OR astro turf track
About the 1:10 Off-road track:
95% high grip astro turf with rubber filling. 5% carpet with good traction. The track surface drains water very well so running in the rain is problem free, normally no puddles occur. The driving direction is clockwise. The jumps are not too hard on the cars, so they are fine also for vintage cars. The layout may be changed from year to year.
Good flooded lights making it possible to drive after sundown.
The pit area has 230 V AC outlets, and is shielded against sun and rain. There is room for 120 drivers in the pit area.
Designated area with air compressor for cleaning of the model racing cars. Also a designated area for washing bodyshells.
The timekeeping and technical control is done in a two storeys high building beside the track.
Kiosk and Cafeteria with hot food and snacks. The kiosk is placed close to the track whilst the cafeteria is placed in the Motor Centre a few steps uphill from the track.
Several toilets with sinks. Showers are also available.
Benches, chairs and tables for recreation.
Plenty of parking spaces by the track.
We use RCM software and AMB dekoders. You'll need your own personal ABM transponder (or clone). We also have 15 handout transponders in case you don't own one.

How to get to Oslo
By air: Gardermoen Airport is situated approx. 60 km north of the track. Approx. 45 minutes drive. Follow E6 to Oslo, then "Gøteborg" (Gothenburg), then "Stockholm". Take off at sign to "Fjordcamp". Take right in the roundabout. You will then pass the camping on your left side and the beach on your right side. A few hundered meters further you take left uphill at a sign that says "Motorsenteret". Do not take right in the T-crossing right before the sign.
By car: You can bring your car by boat from Kiel, Copenhagen or Hirtshals. Here are some links to ferry companies: DFDS Seaways and Color Line. There are probably other alternatives too.
On the above illustration you can see how you can take the ferry from Kiel and all the way to Oslo.
On the above illustration you can see where you should drive by car all the way to Oslo. You take the ferry from Puttgarten to Rødby. Then you pass through Denmark, and then take another ferry from Helsingborg to Helsingør in Sweden.
