If you look at picures from their events it is almost always wet.
hes hit it right on the nose, my gramother/her family live all over europe,mostly england, an she said it rains alot,and from friend over there said they have tryed clay awhile back and 3-4 trime a mouth they would have too redo evey jump an berms they would keep washing out, that said they do have clay tracks there just indoors, for the most part they grew up in grass racing also nitro is way more popular,cus they race in rain too..... NOW THATS SOMETHING WE NEVER DO HERE IN THE STATES
we have better weither, an thats why eeryone comes to america for dirtbike racing/mx-sx/ and rc racing
and since we growup around nice tracks we have the best sx-mx racers, bubba, rickey, and M.C. mcgrath...the list keeps going...
now as fore rc cars 80% americans dominate, but in 1/8th scale these some good eroupe racers since they grewup racing 1/8th scale it only naturale.... but the past 3-5 years 1/8th scale really blew up here, i use to see 8-20 people race 1/8th at the track, now 40-100 and when big event come no less then 300people
even i turned to 1/8th scale(THE DARK SIDE
still have my T3 for 1/10th scale...
