Gran Canaria is an Island. It's got water all around it, making it more of a task going there to watch a race. Sorry to spoonfeed people, but it is what it is. Nobody's going to be able to get in their car and drive there.

If for example the race was in Madrid, it'd be four hours away from me in car. It would be basicly 4 hours away "to everyone" in Spain.

I see no point in it being held on a remote location on an island.
Considering these things that you have said. Why did they build the track where it is? Is it because the land was affordable there? Not usable for something that would bring in more tax revenue? I have never been there, but from the pictures and video its a beautiful track. Grippy or not.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gran_Canaria

It's off the coast of Africa.
I'm going to assume track was built there because of tourists with holiday homes wanting a place to race.

More power to them, if they have the money and the desire, and are creating a racing environment, that's fantastic.

No guts, no glory, no riot.

the track and the facility is actually very good. we just had no grip there for whatever reason unfortunately. however the familiy that runs that facility made our stay very much comfy and if you forget about griplevels for a moment, it was just perfect. but considering it is still 5C in madrid and 20C in gran canaria there is your answer why the race is held there and not in mainland europe in february. and for most of the ETS regulars it makes no difference if they fly to vienna, frankfurt or las palmas...have to get on a plane anyway. unfortunately i think a UK round of ETS is just to expensive and thats why there just little hope of that happening anytime soon (and that the UK has one of the best organized national championships in europe).

fdr stock 5.0. blinky speedo and fixed timing on motor (13.5T).

Bangkok has the grippiest asphalt I've ever driven on.. Traction rolling is common.. Something they could learn from the Thais perhaps?..

Asphalt indoors always ends up as high grip as it can't 'weather' so the oils in the asphalt are never washed away over time etc.

That's just a poor excuse, we've got 19C in Malaga today, and as you know Malaga is mainland Europe. So it's just a poor excuse.

RC Addict in BKK is asphalt outdoor and the traction is crazy there as well...

Care to share those reasons? (via PM if not on here )
I have spoken to Oli Meggit about it and seem to recall he mentioned it;s unlikely we'd ever get a round, although I don't recall going into any details as to why.

you seem to misunderstand this is no excuse for anything

in austria its 7C and i would guess anywhere in europe other then the most southern regions it is too cold to hold an outdoor round of rc racing.

if guys from your track or any other would want an ETS round held at their facility, i think you should best talk to the organizers and make an argument for your club. otherwise, you just have to stick with the dates and tracks they decide on...

i personally find the race in gran canaria very much fun and relaxing. super organized, the local club members etc are super friendly and make you feel at home. so should the ets decide to come back to the island...i am there for sure!
