I doubt they are....there are no coverage mentioned by them on their website. The last one was BRCA.

It is sad about the biggest and fastest RC car event and NO ONE even care to talk about.............all the coverage probably will be done next monday when everything is over.

REDRC is going. From what I have seen with a lot of races is that when rcracing.tv is there REDRC is doing nothing....

Why would RedRC need to do anything when RCracingtv.net broadcast the whole even from 8-5 daily...? I would even pay rcracingtv to broadcast the whole thing, but too bad I don't think think they are going...

The IC 200mm WC was one of the best stream that I have ever seen...not to mention, it was free.

Wow....you are listing a 1/2 odd or 1/2 even there....so sad. It does not sounds like a WC afterall, sounds like a Japanese national with invitation...

So what is the reason for the poor attendance at this WC? I read Collari's statement on RedRC, etc... is that why everyone else backed out/didn't show?

Costs and a sudden change of ruling....

No sponsered tires with the additives of their choice and sponsorbudgets are getting smaller so more of the trip has to be payed from out of the own pocket.

You still have all the Japanese (including Hara) plus Salven, D'hondt, Groskamp, Mack, Vejrak, Morganti, Wang, Bertin, Moore, Leino, Elias, so should still be a good race.

If I am not wrong, racers there are not allowed to use additives. They can pick their brand of tires.

And sudden change of sportsmanship. Shame. Isn't it unprofessional? No wonder some people say 1/8 is also dying.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, some say os engine is having good price performance, some say tire choices. To some extent, I msg partially agree the excuse of radioactive there if this is the real reason behind, but,.......hope the fact behind its not they are not dare to go to loose and thin pocket.

Not going, then won't be lose head to head with other competitors

Only ~23% are Japanese.

Have to play to win. Only the new world champion will not need a reason for their performance or need an excuse.

The race goes on.

Swauger, Burch, Picco and Collari did not race at last years 200mm WC in Bangkok either.

That race was completely tire and additive open.

Maybe this is the new normal.
