LiPo approved for 2010 IFMAR World Championships

We have gotten word from IFMAR confirming the dates for this year’s World Championships. The big news is that the World Championships for 1/10th Electric touring and 1/12th scale in Burgdorf, Germany have been moved to a week earlier and will now start on the 27th of June with the 1/12th scale and continuing through to the 4th of July with touring car. The dates for the other events stay the same confirming that the 1/10th 200mm Worlds in Houston, Texas will take place from the 22nd of July through to the 1st of August, while the 1/8th Buggy Worlds in Pattaya, Thailand will be held from the 7th of November until the 14th.

Subject: Definitive confirmed dates of IFMAR events.

Dear friends;

The IFMAR calendar for sporting events has been closed with an unanimous agreement from all IFMAR Blocs. The proposed date for the IFMAR Electric Track events at the Burgdorf venue, EFRA Bloc, has changed due to several Blocs requesting it to be further apart from the very first schedulled IFMAR date, the one of 1/10th I.C. 200 mm IFMAR World Championships at Porter, Houston, Texas.

IFMAR has to thank the generous effort done by the MAC-Burgdorf Club and the Geman ruling body DMC, and as well EFRA and its responsibles, making possible to be able to host such important event with satisfactory dates for all Blocs. Consequently the IFMAR Official Sporting Calendar for the 2010 season is :

27th June to 4th July 2010: XV IFMAR World Championship 1:12th Electric Modified track & VI IFMAR World Championship 1:10th Electric Touring Cars. Venue: Burgdorf (Germany); Club website: http://www.mac-burgdorf.de/

22th July to 1st August 2010: IV XV IFMAR World Championship 1:10th IC Track 200 mm. Venue:Gulfcoast Raceway, Porter, Texas (U.S.A.); Event website: http://www.2010ifmar200mmsedanworlds.com/

7th November to 14th November 2010: XIII IFMAR World Championship 1:8th IC Off Road. Venue: Pattaya RC Powerboat Club, Pattaya (Thailand).

Many thanks in advance for your kind attention, sincerely yours

Carlos Gomez
Secretary IFMAR
