- Three Euros and One Worlds in 2012!
- Argentina may get a WarmUp (;)
- Outside the pits, get sick with additives
- Batlle has been there checking the scene (;)
A new season is ready to start and this letter is dated the crazy 29th February, a day that only happens to be each 4 years, so that, impossible to forget. I hope that the 2012 season will become as well a season impossible to forget. In regards of rules, there has not been any significant change at the last Efra AGM 2011 we discussed there a proposal over a designated tire, but the issue was postponed for the next AGM looking for a solution suitable only for our Euro B
So the focus of the season will be again the maximum of Nitro, 25% in density, plus the LiPo sack and bumpers, with special attention to the non application of any tIre treatment inside the event premises.
Start of it will be the always interesting Neo Race at Harper Adams UK the 22 25 April and I can hardly encourage you to attend it as most probably the event is fully booked since months ago. Our initial event of the season will be widely attended in order to prepare the XXXII Euros A it will be the Efra GP of Austria at Ferhring track 20 to 22 April. Our biggest event of the year, the XXXII European Championship A 1/8th off road to be held at same venue the first complete week of August from 6th to 11th August. Attention those are changed dates!
Going back to our Efra calendar the 18 20 May we are to celebrate as well quite an important race, the Efra GP of France at Reims the selected venue for the next EC A 2013 so it is a date to be marked in red in all the top drivers own calendars as it will help them to prepare the next Euros A Our next race of the Efra off road show will be the IX European Championship B at Oberbüren, Switzerland. Oberbüren is located North East of the Swiss country, rather central in Europe. This event is greatly planned and for the first time in our class history we will have there the Efra TV media and consequently the exposure for the possible sponsors will be great.
After Switzerland we will head to the EuroChamps A back to Austria and meanwhile, during the European summer, is expected to be a WarmUp race for the Buenos Aires Ifmar World Championships dates are not closed yet, I will inform you of those, but up to know nothing is firm.
At September we are going to taste a new European Championship, the 1st Plus 40 European Championship in France, venue has been changed from Lyon to Dijon due to unforeseen reasons beyond the club control, so the organizer of this Open Entry EC will be the Longvic Club, an excellent facility which has been the home of Euro A some years ago. Keep in mind that entries for this kind of event are not done trough allocations but directly with the organizer like in an Efra GP
The last event inside Europe of our calendar is the Efra GP of Italy 21 23 September at Viggiu, very North Italy. The very last event of the Season will be the Ifmar Worlds at Argentina, Buenos Aires City. It will be run from Saturday to Saturday, 1st to 8th December 2012 Obviously I will fight for my European drivers to obtain the most possible spots, but I can not ensure anything yet. Please, keep on mind, at all events safety comes first.
