RADIO control vehicles will descend on Pinjar for The Buggy Club’s open day on April 15.

People are encouraged to “bring their radio control off-road buggies” and have a go on the track, drag strip and crawler area, with “all buggy scales welcome”.

The event will include displays of radio control buggies and the Wanneroo Central Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade, with food and drinks available and a sausage sizzle from the local scouts group.

Kids activities will include go-karts rides and a bouncy castle and there will be prizes and giveaways.

“It has taken nearly five years for my husband Aaron and myself and a few good friends to plan and develop The Buggy Club facility for radio control off-road buggies and now we are finally able to open to the public,” Samantha Ifould said.

“A lot of hard work has gone into what we have developed.”

Entry is a gold coin donation and $5 to have a go with your off-road buggy.

The event will run at the Cecil Road (off Perry Road) track from 10am to 3pm.
