A 3-hour race for 1/10 nitro touring cars will be held as a season opener on Saturday, 27th of March, at Oberhausen in Western Germany. Up to eleven teams with three drivers each and with one to three cars per team can compete in the long-distance race on the well-known 234 meter track. Following the practise from 10 to 15 the race will be started at 16 o’clock. Because it is the evening before the clock change to summer time, the race might end in twilight and under flood light. This would mean a special atmosphere like in November when the season ran out with a 3h-race for 1/8 scale at Oberhausen under flood light as well. Even though the temperatures are still quite low in Europe, for the first time the meteorologists have forecasted the temperatures to raise into the double-digit area in the next days – perfect for the kick-off of the outdoor season. The first teams have already signed for this race and of course entries from outside Germany are highly appreciated. The online entry and further information are available here.
