What to Expect
We encourage everyone for take part in hands-on racing. It's so easy anyone can do it. 3 year olds play, elderly play, serious gamers play, real auto racers play and everyone has fun. We have the system optimized for ease of play, yet there is room for skill and tactics, so our racing is highly addictive.
This is not traditional slot car racing with one car per lane and crashing every time you go to fast. New technology allows multiple cars per lane and passing while the cars can be safely driven at top speed. Lots of crashes occur, but hey are part of the fun! We think our slot car racing is more exciting to watch than real auto racing, it's not loud, you can see the whole race, it's faster, there is more action, more winners and the racers are not wearing helmets so their faces and comments are part of the show! for all to see!
We use sound effects and high quality PA to address the racers and fans. Just like real racing there are many opportunities for logo placement and catchphrases can be worked into our verbal presentation.
So, we can entertain a small group for any age or mixed ages, or we can functions as a traffic builder to attract and engage in a trade show or promotional situation.
Nomad was founded by Jim Cunningham, whose passion for and vast experience with, slot car racing began with fun of playing with slot cars as a young boy. His lifelong participation in the hobby at all levels including building of world class tracks, cars and victories in international competitions, has given him a deep understanding of the attraction and advantages of this form of miniature auto racing.
Jim's strong creative skills have lead him to optimize the equipment and presentation for maximum fun, ease of participation and excitement, tailored to any audience. Before founding Nomad Slot racing in 2001, Jim founded built and lead a team of craftsmen at CyclArt, Inc. performing exacting restoration services, and creative finishing for the bicycle industry.
