After successful pilot 1/10 Electric Buggy event for 40+ drivers in August, organizers announce the event is coming back in 2016. For 2015, the goal was to build a pilot race for 40+ drivers and see how the concept works. The concept was to provide high quality racing event, but also to keep things relaxed and offer something extra compared to the usual airport-track-hotel experience. All these additionals programs were appreciated by the drivers and mechanics.
One of the drivers participating the race in August was David “DC” Church, and this is what he had to say about the event, “I’ve had probably the most fun I’ve ever had at a race meeting! The Vaasa team have done the most Amazing organisation I’ve ever seen. From a perfectly prepared track to a proper pit area and great food including a home cooked lunch with a lunch break so you can take your time to eat. The events away from the track added a fantastic opportunity to see parts of Finland. Power Park is unbelievable. The Mika Salo go kart track is probably the best in the world. Google both and have a look. A massive thank you to all involved. From the organisers and the racers!”
Next year will keep the same concept and just develop it further. The event has been planned to be organized in early August, and a date will be confirmed after the EFRA AGM. The race will be held at Vaasa, Finland and it will be organized by the same club as 2011 IFMAR Electric Buggy Worlds.
