Look down, way down, as you stroll past Langley City Hall on Cruise-In Day.
This Saturday, you'll be seeing shin-high trucks and race cars buzzing around the asphalt - and up and over jumps and rocks - during the RC Addict Show 'N Go event, presented by RC Race Craze.
The largest radio control (RC) meet in B.C. is part of the Langley Good Times Cruise-In, one of the largest mixed car shows in Canada.
"I'm expecting 80 to 100 entries," said Show 'N Go organizer Paul Riddoch.
For competitors, $600 in gift cards are up for grabs from One Stop Hobbies, an HPI Sprint 2 Sport from Hi-Performance distributors, and a Traxxas Drag car from RC
Pitstop. And for $5 you can enter to win a Traxxas Grave-Digger RTR that is available to everyone.
Competitions include long jump, drag racing, drifting, and rock crawling. A smallscale show 'n shine is also scheduled.
Each of the five mini events (drifting, rock crawling, drag racing, long jump and the show'n shine) is being hosted by different RC clubs from around the Lower Mainland. Riddoch said clubs helping him with the Show 'N Go are the Chilliwack RC Club, Armature Alley in North Vancouver and the B.C. Mini-Z Club.
There is also lots to do for people who don't have an RC car.
From 11 a.m. to noon the RC Show 'n Shine will be open for voting to the general public. There will also be some demo cars for the general public to try, the Gravedigger draw, and get a chance to drive the new Traxxas 1/8 scale funny car.
Riddoch continues to accept entries from RC car owners. You can pre-register up to 24 hours before the competition. A $15 ticket gets you one car in one event and a free ticket for the GraveDigger draw. Registration the day of the event, which does not include the GraveDigger draw, is $20.
To operate your RC on site, but not be eligible for prizes, costs $2.

All proceeds will go to the hosting clubs and the Langley Good Times Cruise-In charities.
