Each with dedicated mechanic. So committed
Well I knew of Collari and Gilles, yet now they have Teemu, they just need to hire Adrien and I think they would be great. Adrien has coached many world champions!

You habe to give it to Uwe, he has a winning formula, and most racers seem to like it a lot. It's a shame we are to spread out in the US to be able to have a similar series. Maybe Scotty Ernst could throw something together.

Definitely, should have a series of races for the world title instead of just one. Ens is to be more popular eventually, I guess, than the ifmar
But I would doubt about the cost of participating and racing it from the sponsors.

I think IFMAR has lost touch with the racers! I'd gladly start racing again if we had something that followed the ENS format, or like Patrick Schäfer pushing the spec .21 Sonic motors to save fuel consumption and Tire wear.

To take a part of an ENS which is actually a small Worlds with many topdrivers you only have to pay 40 euro and on top of that the handout tires.
To take a part at an Ifmar worlds you have to be a clubmember with a national licence with an EFRA licence (if you live in Europe) and the you have to pay the starting fee. Lets say you need to pay about 350~400 euro to take a part and then there is the possibillity only if you are selected by rankings....

Do the math....

I'm with you Roelof,

To think how well the ENS series is doing, and given that Uwe and crew have done such a good job, then look back on the disappointing (coverage, and organization) of the last Worlds in Brazil, it's a shame.

On another note, looking at the rankings listing, there were quite a few Infinity cars present
.

If this new Infinity car kit starts wining can they say its the new car kit or would it be the drivers they went out and got on their team? Like Roelof stated that the ENS series is a small group with good or top drivers and if so are the top drivers range across the board with other manufacturer teams or did Infinity grab most of them ?

Hey Dan, does this mean you are cleaning out your Serpent inventory? What do you think of parts fitment and quality. I am curious if it's similar to Mugen (nothing wrong with them, just my preference of chassis and kits).
