Offroad Meeting Arena - Announcement

The 2009 Off Road Meeting Arena is only weeks away and it will bring together some of the best drivers and manufacturers together to battle it out for the overall titles. The indoor race will take place at the 3500 square meter Wild West style rodeo ring and the organisers promise something that has never been seen before in off road racing in Europe, with title races, special events and a professional atmosphere not just for the participants but also the viewing audience. Entry is now closed and the race will have 67 drivers in F1 class, 91 drivers in F2 class, 25 drivers in truggy class and 33 drivers in the new electric 1/8 brushless class. Drivers from all over Europe will be in attendance including such names as Boots, Boero, Dapporto, Gomez, Hernandez, Jacopini, World Champ Laffranchi, Perin, 2008 & 2009 Italian Champ Rabitti, Teghesi, two times European Champ Tortorici, Willets, 2009 Italian Champ Seminario and more, ready to fight for the victory. As a special event the best 16 drivers in F1, F2 and the best truggy drivers will be called to fight in the Arena with a spectacular format race on Saturday night. The 16 drivers will start with an inverted order from the official time table with an EFRA start. After 5 minutes of racing a bell will be rung and the last placed driver over the finish line will be eliminated and must come to the pit at the end of the next lap. From the first ring, every 2 minutes the bell will sound again and this will go on until there are 3 drivers left and these will battle it out in a straight race to the finish line to be crowned the Race of Champions winner. Red RC will present throughout the entire event reporting live from the track and you can follow the coverage from the 20th till the 22nd of November.
