Some information about the up coming Electric off-road FEMCA-CUP from Trevor Reid

Event Information:
Name: 2012 1/10th Electric Off-Road FEMCA-CUP
Date: 6~8. Apr. 2012
National Body: Japan Model Radio-Control Car Association
Host club: JMRCA KANTO, kanto@jmrca.jp
Track: Yatabe Arena Tsukuba-City,
Chairperson: Yasuo Takizawa
Mr Masami Hirosaka the 14 time World Champion will on hand along with others to pass on their knowledge.

-SC (Short Course Truck)

Controlled tires will be used for each Category.

One free set of tires will be included in the entry fee; participants can purchase one extra set in each category, allowing drivers to use up to 2 sets of tires per category during the event.

Due mainly to the safety issues of travelling with Li-Po batteries, all participants will use only the Li-Po rental batteries provided.

Each participant can use 2 batteries in each category. IMPORTANT: You may not use your own batteries during this event.

There will be more on this to follow as we receive the information from the various tire and battery providers.

IMPORTANT: Please do not attempt air travel with Li-Po batteries, as this has become a recognised problem world-wide with many airlines.

We have to be proactive and do what we can to be responsible air travellers where we can, THANK YOU.

To follow will be a full report including entry details, accommodation, transport, transfers, etc and of course the rules.

But this is just to let you know so you can start planning your trip to this great new indoor all weather venue and experience the event being hosted by some of the best in the business.

If this is your game don’t miss out on this great opportunity to meet with the Japanese factory teams (they will be on hand to help) and enjoy the event.

The hosts have done all they can to ensure your stay with them is an enjoyable one.

You will be surprised by the prices as this is not down town Tokyo but you will still get to enjoy all that Japan has to offer.

I suggest you extend your stay a little to enjoy the JAPANESE EXPERIENCE.

Hope to see you there

Trevor Reid

Website updates

A bit of work has been done 'behind the scenes' on rcracer. Now old posts from Wordpress are showing with our new system (scroll down to see them), and more work has been done to make adding content easier, which will mean more frequent updates.

A few fixes have been made to the media categorization, for example a Touring Stock race was categorized with Super Touring for the 2011 Electric on-road nationals. Bits and pieces like that have been fixed.

New events have been added to the upcoming events list (to the left), and the countdown timers are now more accurate.

Added to the Photos/Videos section are some photos of:
-2010 Racing Lines International
-2009 Hawke's Bay Winter 300
