The organiser has advised that a Pre-Worlds Race will be held at Full Throttle Speedway from April 28 to May 2, 2004.

The brand-new track is located beside the Kissimmee Golf Course which will be available for the racers to use during their free time.

John: I think you would have to qualify through EFRA.

Check here for details.

You are not invited but you have to be qualified through your country's federation. It is a process.

Usually they each of the blocks with get 40 drivers to put on their qualifying list. Which they determine how it is set up. ROAR usually does the Asphalt Nationals i believe with the top 40 qualifying.

Since the Worlds can be expensive, entry fee alone is 150-200 per class, there will always be spots available. Especially if the EFRA and FEMCA sanctions don't fill their spots, I am sure ROAR would be happy to allow other US drivers in.

You usually have to send in some resume or letter of interest to ROAR. Probably to Fred Howhart. This has been my past experiences with getting into the worlds.

Do they run stock and modified at the Worlds (in both 1/10 and 1/12), or mod only? Also, is there a motor limit like in ROAR?

Very nice track. I'm sure it's fun for 8th scale.

No right holding a 12th race though. What is IFMAR thinking?

Exactly, they will have to shorten/alter the track a lot.
Or everyone will have to find some REALLY big pinions!
