My name is Keith Blackburn, I was born on Jan 26 1959 in Luton England. My father was in the United States Air Force, so I spent most of my childhood moving around Europe. I have lived in England, Finland, Germany, and currently reside in Butler PA U.S. I became interested in R/C cars in February of 2009 after a 25 year career racing or working on full sized Go-Karts, Micro Sprints, Pure Stock, and Late models.

    While racing Karts I won over 45 races and 3 track championships. I only ever won 1 heat race in my Pure Stock, and 1 Feature in my Late Model.

    At the age of 50 I decided to give R/C racing a try when I heard about an indoor carpet track about 30 min from my home. I talked to some of the guys racing there and the next week I had one of my own.

And as they say, "The rest is history".
