After originally stating that the forthcoming 1/12th World Championships will be held on asphalt with a control tyre, IFMAR have dropped a bombshell and announced that the event will now be run on carpet. Be sure to read their full press release below for additional details.
Taking into consideration the predominant general feelings and thanks to the goodwill and co-operation of the organiser IFMAR has commonly agreed to revert the 2014 IFMAR world championship 1/12th from an Asphalt to a Carpet surface race.
We are well aware that this may come over as a bombshell. Many people will have to reconsider their engagements due to this important new element and its short notice.
A swift and ample communication flow is by then fundamental.
We trust you to spread this important information at your very earliest convenience to all concerned levels under your control.
Yours in the sport,
IFMAR electric sections.”
