Default On road racing in other countries?

If you had to choose a country/area outside your own to go racing, where would it be?

my first choice would be Japan, just to see how the racing differs (longer races and different motors?) and see any different cars etc.

my second choice would be the USA, again, to see the differences and the racing on foams

would love to find my way to participate in TITC... since its probably the closest "international" race for us here in Flipland... 2nd on the list would be Japan.

It depends your prefer, where you like to racing equals which kind of rules you want to follow, every country's association have got its own rules. Something you could use in your country maybe not in other.
In Japan have a lot race bodies from small manufacturers or maybe some motors(ex:23T motors of Sportsman class) that you can't use in USA, but also somekind could use in rest of the world, also USA, but never in Japan, for example: Brushless system, 2.4ghz system, 19T, 27T Stock, LIPO battery, foam tires and carpet races.
Could you see how lack of choices have in Japan and more freedom for Americans.

For me it is interesting to see how other countries go about their racing

23T motors Vs the 27t I am used to, for example. And any difference in equipment availability.

Pardon, I am not sure what are you really want but i will try.
Honestly I didn't race before these 2 kind of races but as I know 23T is more popular in Japan than 27T in USA, even Team drivers have joined 23T race, ex: Masami did before, lots of japanese brands, even big or small have been released 23T, team orion it's the foreign one, even Yokomo have been released newest motor can just for 23T. As the US's 27T have not only influenced only its own country but also all of the europe, like the Japan's
23T make the same influence in all the Asia zone, we could see in TITC.

In the uk we have 19t and 27t racing, and modified, so it would be interesting to see what kind of power the 23t motors put out in race conditions
