Slot Car Racing at Buzz-A-Rama

A few years ago, I was remembering Buzz-A-Rama, the slot car track in Brooklyn and some of my slot car experiences in New York.

I found this nice video by Rahul Chadha on Buzz and the track in Brooklyn. It looks like it’s still supported by parties for kids. I didn’t see any indication of organized racing, e.g., USRA (United Slot Racers Association) or ISRA (International Slot Racing Association). The track was never on those circuits when I used to go there.

I wondered how Buzz could stay in business all these years until I saw that track time was $20/hr on the Blue King. Maybe Buzz-A-Rama’s longevity is just a result of the interest in slot car racing that seems to have a revival every couple of years.
