Default 2011 8th scale Worlds

Does anyone know if the venue has been confirmed yet? I heard that it was given to one place but they maybe having trouble and it maybe going somewhere else?

There has been no venue selection, as yet, for the 2011th 8th Scale Worlds.

Multiple groups have expressed interest. The dialog is ongoing and no formal decisions have been made. It is premature to make any solid comments. Be patient there is much that needs to happen.

My understanding is that 301 got it, but due to recent problems at 301 (closed) that the announcement has been put on hold. Sounds like 301 will be back next year so hopefully they will keep the worlds.

According to the owner, Mikes in Houston is putting in a bid (or has already) for 2011 8th scale worlds.

That is indeed the track with the new layout for the 2010 sedan worlds.

Guys - Rich Browne, ROAR Promotions Director, just posted above that there is much to do yet and any official comment will be extremely premature.

No sense in creating miscommunication that could cause difficulty for any facility interested but not contacting ROAR due to rumors.


Give us a little time. Please.

I don't believe Leisure hobbies track is Ifmar legal(ie must have 3ft minimum between all lanes.)
