Mexico & Argentina join race to host World C/Ship

It seems IFMAR is going to a have choice of countries to choose from for the hosting of the 1:8 Offroad World Championships with Mexico and Argentina putting themselves forward as replacements for Brazil.  Joining Bolivia’s bid yesterday, from Mexico, FEMARAC and the PicNic Royal Club in Guadalajara, have put together a presentation stating, ‘Following the announcement earlier today of the cancellation of Brazil’s planned hosting of the September event, Mexico has come out to present its formal proposal to participate and host this great event in Guadalajara Mexico, one of the most important cities in the country, with every amenities available even to the most demanding of all, as well as a city full of Music (Mariachi), traditional folk dance, typical food of the country and many other nationalities. A headquarters that, due to its international airport and connectivity, allows arrivals from any part of the world at very affordable prices.’  Having previously hosted the World Championships in 2012 where Robert Batlle won his title, Argentina has submitted a proposal to host the 19th edition of the Worlds at the same venue.

While the 2012 World Championship was surrounded by issues, Speed Paradise posted,  ‘Possible venue for the 2024 1/8 off road world championship, where the world championship was held in 2012 and multiple South American events. The venue has all the necessary infrastructure to host a World Cup, which is good since there is little time and with the experience of what it is like to host a World Cup. The runway is very well located since it is almost next to the airport, close to many hotels of all prices and is located next to the highway with easy access. The property is quite large and there has already been a World Cup that went impeccably and without complications.
