CRC - Calandra Racing Concepts


CRC's model car racing roots date back to the early 1960's when Frank Calandra Sr. began his model racing career with slot cars. The senior Frank was passionate and enthusiastic about the hobby that began to flourish in the 60's.


it was also 1979 when Frank Jr. picked up his first competitive R/C car, the Tamiya Rough Rider. R/C racing in upstate NY was virtually non-existent in the early 80's. In fact, the closest place to get parts for the Rough Rider was the famous Ranch Pit Shop in California. All the way across the country!


With a big push from younger brother Mark, the Calandra gang re-entered the R/C racing scene in 1988.
