I thought it was Europe again due to a mix up in the allocations after FAMAR pulled out of running it.

"nitro-ish" track for and EP on-road worlds ... wish IFMAR would have picked a more electric suitable track to showcase the handling and more bumper-to-bumper type racing that make EP TC so exciting to watch.

2 years ago, Hara drove 120 Km/H on this track. Also the Xenon Tires blew up (inserts broke), so the had to switch to Sorex Tires.... Yes, massive speeds are awesome but is that the type of racing we like???

It was a relatively slow track last time, so I guess they wanted to mix things up a little.

+1, I don't like it either.

I race nitro and electric 1/10 and for nitro this track is awesome. In electric racing it's not the speed, its more the agility of the cars and tight racing.

When you race on a smaller track its more like real scale racing rather then a 4-5m wider track where you hardly see the cars ...

It looks very much like the set-up of our track, not that much fun to drive in TC more a IC track.

For the worlds they will ad a chicane on the straight.
On the webcam you can see where the chicane will be.
