1:8 Electric Offroad IFMAR World Cup cancelled

With the date a major point of concern when the event was first announced back in March due to how close it was to the 1:10 Offroad Electric World Championship in the United States, it has been announced that the 1:8 Electric Offroad World Cup event in Portugal has been cancelled.  Due to take place from September 22-24, 2023, at the former European Championship host track in Guarda, the World Cup would have been the first step for the electric category to become a World Championship category in 2025.  With only 15 confirmed entries, while officially announced as ‘cancelled’ in the statement the organisers later described the event as being postponed to a ‘possible new date will be April 5-6-7 in 2024’ which means there is hope the event can still happen and move 1:8 Electric Buggy to World Championship status.

Electric Off-road World Cup event in Guarda/Portugal Cancelled

The organizer in Guarda and the Portuguese Federation of this event have contacted us to tell that the event will be cancelled.  Scheduled for September 22, 23 and 24 and with only 15 drivers who paid the entry fee the event will be postponed to April 2024.  Apart from the low attendance also very bad weather is to be expected for the dates mentioned, which was another reason to cancel. Those who have paid the entry fee will be refunded.

Majority of drivers that did the inscription were from Portugal and Spain with 3 drivers coming further away. All drivers have been informed already by the organizer by phone and/or email.  The possible new date will be April 5-6-7 in 2024 and we will inform you asap when we receive an updated Stage report
