Default ROAR is now accepting bids to host the 2014 IFMAR 1/10 Electric On-Road World

In 2014 the IFMAR Electric On-Road Worlds are scheduled to come to the ROAR bloc, and ROAR is looking for a top-notch facility to host the event. A qualified host should have adequate “big race” experience and a facility that is appropriate as a venue to host the ultimate event in the category. If you think you have a facility that would be well suited to the task, please contact your regional director or one of the ROAR executive committee for more information. Email addresses can be found here for those interested: http://www.roarracing.com/?page_id=76

Great News, but we need tracks to apply that are capable of holding them.

Is there a single carpet track in North America capable of hosting this event? Does said track also have an asphalt facility?

That was actually not bad to race on other than the tire advantage by some. But I think if the race was on asphalt there is supposed to be a handout tire. Not sure how that would work with different wheel offsets.

Unfortunately the 1/12 Worlds in Thailand had a very low turnout. I can't see very many people looking forward to a 1/12 asphalt race in the U.S.

I dont see anything regarding track size but my guess is you would need about a 120x90-100 track for TC and slightly smaller than that on carpet for 12th scale. Rick or somebody in the know could correct me if Im wrong on that
