Not quite a secret but today the N.American governing body ‘ROAR’ announced that the 1/10 Offroad Nationals would be held at Silver Dollar RC Raceway in Chico, Ca on August 8-11th – the same venue which will host the 1/10 Offroad World Championships in 2WD & 4WD just over 6 weeks later.

The news comes at a time of rumoured friction between the owners/organisers (online retail giant A Main Hobbies) and the worldwide governing body IFMAR as the two parties attempt to steer the event towards different goals.

Regardless of outcome, the nationals announcement is sure to stir up a spectrum of reactions as ROAR racers qualified for the Worlds will be delighted with an extra chance to get some practice in on the same surface whilst non-ROAR racers travelling across the World for the Championships in September are sure to be disappointed that even before the event starts theres a bit of funny business floating around…
