1/10th Events 2017
The 2017 1/10 Off-Road Elec. World Championshipwill be held at:-
The FEMCA Bloc. in China.
The address of the venue is :-
3 Circles model Technology.
519 Jimei North Avenue, Jimei, Xiamen, Fujian, China. (If you type this into google maps you should find it).
The venue is in the South East of China, approx. 400 km North East of Hong Kong. (Taiwan is approx. 100 km off the coast).
The venue is 19 km from Xiamen International Airport (36 mins. ride).
The Hotel zone is 15 km from the track venue with 'pick-up' organised. (The Hotels look impressive).
Xiamen has an international airport, but I have no information regarding direct flights.
There are flights from Honk Kong and Shanghai each day to Xiamen.
The track venue is large and also encompasses a tarmac track. The facilities at the track look very impressive.
The track surface is clay, outdoors.
The date for the event is given as 07 - 12 Nov. 2017.
At this stage, I advise this should not be considered as firm, as this encompasses six days and the Off-Road WC takes seven days. I have asked the IFMAR Chairman to have this ratified and will inform you when we have definite dates.
The 2017 European Championshipwas decided at the AGM last year:
The event will be hosted by Italy.
The venue is approx. 9 km from the town of Pinerolo, which is SW of Turin.
I estimate it is approx. 60 km from Turin airport.
The address of the track venue is:-
50, 10064 Pinerolo. Lat/Long 44.864490 7.399080
On google maps :- If you enter -- Agrimodel, Buriasco, Italy -- you should find the actual track.
The organisers have been asked to give preferred dates, tyre choice etc., but as yet I have no details from them. I will update you when these details have been received.
