Greg - Yes, the entire track will be sugared for the Worlds.
IFMAR Rules can be found here: http://members.ozemail.com.au/~ifmar/rulesindpg.htm
Read the General and the 1/12th-ISTC Rules.
You will find that ROAR follows most of the IFMAR rules very closely. This is good as we don't have to make a very big adjustment to run in an IFMAR event. On the flip side if you are a Bloc 4 (FAMAR, South America, Africa, Middle East) racer you are lost when you arrive at an IFMAR event. So next time you hear some one bagging on ROAR about following IFMAR's lead tell them to move to Brazil, Kuwait or South Africa and there they can run what ya brung!
