We are still investigating exactly what happened at the 2008 Euro’s. We are very sorry to hear that the competition was tarnished by this problem. This is a delicate issue so I do not want to post any information that could be untrue.
As I mentioned on the UK forum (after being alerted to the problem this morning in an e-mail), the facts are as follows;
1 - I do know that all the US manufactures were e-mailed by ROAR on 3/19/2008 regarding oversized wheels in 1:12th scale. Manufactures on this list were Parma, Jaco, CRC and BSR. We were alerted to check our wheels as some manufacturers were too large. Ours were re-checked and found them to be within the rules.
Here is a link to the actual ROAR Statement e-mailed to us 3-19-08;
2 - Hoeco Modellbau is the mainland European distributor for CRC. Robert Bachofner is not the distributor for CRC in Europe. Robert is not employed by CRC nor Hoeco (to my knowledge).
3 – If there was a protest filed, CRC played no part in the protest or dispute.
We need time to gather some additional information as to what actually happened and report with an official statement from Calandra Racing Concepts.
