You can now visit the bigger and better BrickYard. The destination of Mini4WD enthusiasts is officially open for good at its new location at the 3rd level of Glorietta 2. If you missed the Mini-4WD racetrack and hobby space at Glorietta 5, you’ll be even delighted with the new space. There’s no more turning back, and the fun will continue.
Located right next to Lil’s Hobby Center, the Brickyard features two tracks (beginner and intermediate) and a larger space for those who want to build and tinker with their Mini-4WDs. There’s also has a small shop area for those who need new parts for a quick fix on their model cars.
At the BrickYard’s recent Grand Opening, Master Modeller and President and Chairman of Tamiya himself, Mr. Shunsaku Tamiya, was the guest of honor. He signed autographs, had photos with the guest, and witnessed for himself the lively Mini4WD, Model Kit, and RC hobby communities here in the Philippines. “It makes me very happy to see that Tamiya is still well-loved in the Philippines,” Mr. Tamiya said.
Owner Ferdie Kahn hopes that the bigger and better BrickYard location would further stoke the the Mini-4WD, model kit and RC hobbyists. “I’m excited for our new venue,” Ferdie said. “When we opened the BrickYard last year, we wanted to rekindle the hearts of the old hobbyists and the older fans back to their love of Mini4WD. Now, we love seeing these older fans, most of them now parents themselves, bringing their children to the BrickYard. There’s just something great about watching parents teach and show their kids about Mini-4WDs, and RCs. That alone is a wonderful thing,” he concluded.
I have to admit that I haven’t caught on this hobby, but something is brewing. Connect with the BrickYard on Facebook BrickYardLHC for updates. Don’t forget to drop by the bigger and better Brickyard at Glorietta 2 to experience the fun for yourself.
