EFRA & IFMAR clarify gyro illegality

EFRA & IFMAR clarify gyro illegality

Recent rumours about the use of gyro technology in EFRA sanctioned events made it necessary for Dallas Mathiesen, president of both EFRA and IFMAR, to clarify that the use of driving aids such as gyros, traction control and active suspension devices are strictly forbidden in EFRA and IFMAR sanctioned events. Drivers found using forbidden items will be subject of a severe penalty, such as a long term ban from all EFRA and IFMAR events.

EFRA has not and will not declared Gyro as legal. Neither could it be found anywhere in the IFMAR rules that it is allowed to use a Gyro as a driver aid in a Radio Controlled car.

The statement in full can be found on the EFRA website by clicking here (PDF file).
