This is what we have to look forward to for 2 more years....a disinterested regime.

People can say what they want but Dawn did more good for RC in her terms than any of these other people combined.

Not 5 minutes ago I got a call from a ROAR rep asking about the track, its ability to hold a Worlds, etc. Seems to me that ROAR has not exactly given up on the idea of hosting the Worlds.

Rick that is awesome news then that perhaps ROAR is at least making attempt now to look into it! I'll be the first to apologize if this is truly the case and they had a change of heart over night!

Thanks for posting this!

It has been nearly a full month since the deadline passed and ROAR declined the bid, handing it back to IFMAR. Do you really think IFMAR has been sitting around going "oh well, we will just wait a month or so and see what happens"? No, they have made other plans. They may not have announced anything yet but they have made plans. Perhaps he was so short in his answer because he has been talking to IFMAR the whole time and repeatedly told to F off. Not to mention all the flack they are taking from their own members over this.

People are always quick to blame ROAR for everything. Admittedly, it is sometimes deserved but not always. In this case, IFMAR is the main problem. Their facility requirements for this particular race are ridiculous. How many tracks are there IN THE ENTIRE WORLD that have the facilities, money, manpower and desire (it takes all four, three out of four wont fly with IFMAR) to run this race? My guess would be 10 at most.

No you didnt but the way you posted is how I took it. Ive seen several of your other post where you seem to talk down to people that you think have less knowledge than you do.

Do I think IFMAR has sat around? NO. But you proved my point in your last paragraph. If there are only 10 in the world that can do it how many of them have already gotten it figured out and accepted it by now? Probably not many if any have even responded yet. So for ROAR to say they were not interested yesterday is just a shame. But as Rick has posted ROAR has at least reached out to him for his valued opinion on it and looking into it now. Thats a good sign and as I said if thats true I'll be the first to apologize to them and thank them for having a turn of heart.

and I'm the one talking down to people?

Yes I have made a few firm posts in the past (though not too many I think). Guess what, so have you.

I had serious doubts that this would work from the get go but kept my mouth shut (or fingers) because I didn't want to be a downer. Let's just hope Rick is right.

ROAR just dislikes EA not sure that's a bad thing, they seem to have a problem with On-road guys making things happen

Absolutely. I moved to Naples not long ago so as long as I can get off work, I'll be there. Might even volunteer to help out.

Any more news? LiveRC posted an interesting piece about there being a 2 week window reopening to accept bids. Sounds promising.
