JQ questions IFMAR Worlds ’14 plans


Its been the topic on everyones’ lips in the last few months as the questions and scrutiny mount with only 5 months until the 2014 IFMAR Worlds is due to get underway at the ‘urbanised’ Giardini Naxos track in Sicily, Italy. The lack of any official published information for travelling drivers raises doubts about the event as well as the organising hosts’ credibility.

Very little information is coming out of EFRA (the European host bloc), under pressure internally to deliver an event worthy in scale of being called a ‘World Championship’ – something that those who attended Argentina ’12 would question.

Ever the outspoken underdog, Joseph Quagraine has captured a bit of the industry zeitgeist with his ‘open letter’, asking the questions which remain unanswered…



I am writing this as JQ the RC Driver, JQ the Pro RC Driver, and JQ the RC company owner. The more I think about this, whatever position I think of myself to be in, the end result is the same. Something is wrong right now, and we have to fix it. We, as in the people actually racing at these events can do so, if we just voice our opinions together!

So what is the problem, it is pretty simple. I wanted to book my flights for the 1:8th Offroad Worlds, but I realised that I do not actually know which days the event is going to be! I have heard that the worlds will be extended, running for 12 days instead of 7, I have also heard it is just a proposal, I have heard that it will be just one week because “everyone complained”. But the point is, I have not heard anything official, and I would really like to book my flights and hotel!

Worlds Warm up: An afterthought

A few thoughts ahead of the World Championships in December; I write this with just less than two months to go before the main event kicks off in December, but first some background and a short summary of the warm up event from yours truly. Originally Brazil was due to stage the 2012 Worlds, however resistance from many insiders ironically foreseeing customs problems saw the event emigrate South to it’s new home – Buenos Aires, Argentina. RC company accountants cried out to avoid a repeat of the fortnight-long practice sessions that occurred prior to the last World Championships in Thailand, the result close to doubling the attendance costs as companies were forced to partake in the ‘arms race’ game of sending drivers to the warm up. The worldwide governing body IFMAR even concluded there should not be a warm up event in order to keep costs under control, but here we are two years later…

Onto the track, our more informed readers (that’s all of you!) might remember that IFMAR stipulated that should there be a warm up then the track must change a certain amount, whilst there were several stories flying round, it seems certain that the track will be run in the reverse direction for the main event, some say the metal bridge will be moved to another part of the track, others say removed completely. However the corners were already in place, top qualifier David Ronnefalk was heard to say that he thought the layout in reverse might be even better.

We’ve put together a rather crude video in an attempt to show you our interpretation of the layout change, in addition we heard talk of a tarmac section and some additional jumps might be a possibility. The layout upon first glance looks quite easy be it clockwise or anti, however if it runs in reverse for the Worlds the step up jump might prove a bit tricky, as will the double afterwards, its now a blind face jump coming towards you, at the warm up this was the main jump that drivers were already struggling with, carrying enough speed to clear it whilst also trying to find a good landing position for the corner after.

Those drivers who did attend the warm up will have experienced first hand the details of the track surface and how it behaves, small bumps were the main setup obstacles earlier on, the track deteriorated though and certain sections soon saw cars pitched wildly off course. One wonders what it will be like come December as the sun will be out and temperatures much warmer, one last point on that as well, fuel consumption will be critical – it’s a high speed track with a lot of on power sections. Indeed fuel management came into play already at the warm up, Ronnefalk sometimes half a second quicker than Batlle but having to pit once more, thus eroding some of the advantage of course he crashed more as well which saw him lose out.
