PEORIA - With the weather warming up, some are getting their running shoes out, others their bikes.

One group can now get their remote controlled cars back onto the track.

The River City Raceway Club held an open house for people looking to get in to RC racing Saturday.

People got watch to as club members showed off their cars on the off-road and oval tracks.

Club members hope that others get involved in what they say is a fun, yet serious, hobby.

"They look at this as their thing to do, every weekend," said club Secretary April Pattenaude. "You have the same guys come out, every single weekend. They're here, non-stop, and they come out through the week and practice. They take it very seriously."

The club holds races every Saturday until late Fall.

Their first set of races will be next week.
