Does anyone know how the A-main is seeded. For instance, do the top 7 qualify in automatically and then 4 from each of the B mains??
Thanks

I must have missed the memo.
Back on page 1 there was an explanation, but basically they were late with the paperwork. Everyone has been saying not to worry and that they will be racing despite the mishap.

Please go to www.ifmar.org and read the regulations for offroad racing ... IFMAR uses a "Ifmar tree" system, basically no one goes to the final directly, and the TQ guy only start as 1st position on the "A semifinal" and all the driver list after qualies are divided on A and B groups to start racing from 1/xxxth subfinals up to the semifinals.

Usually top five on each group bump to upper group and on semifinals 5 from semifinal A and 5 from semifinal B goes to the FINAL race (1/16 and under are 20 minutes, 1/8 and 1/4's are 30 minutes and FINAL are 60 minutes race).

This year are 216 drivers and IFMAR authoriced to race 12 drivers on the FINAL race, so i dont know how they will seed the final group,

cya,

cya,

top 5 from semi a + b and the two drivers with the fastest times = 12 in A-final

NeoBuggy...that is so absolutely F'ing lame. Dude, seriously, get a friggin life if you can't learn to give proper credit where it is due. I will say this...I will never hop on your site again...your a wanna be dude. I'm sure this has been discussed before...but it really needs to be said again.
FYI, proper credit should go to Trevor Clement...he is the originator of that Jib Jab...NOT Neo.

hey all: Was wondering if anyone has posted on here or knows of a site i can go to to find a list of all the buggy manufacturers their drivers and the outlook for those manufacturers and their drivers at the upcoming '08 ifmar 1/8th buggy worlds? I've seen this done in the past with the on road electric worlds as well as the off road electric worlds. Thanks

It gives a complete list of all drivers from everywhere.

i agree with B-man777.

Sure you can see the list of drivers and where they are from, I think he is asking for a list of drivers linked to their car manufactures.
