As my french isn't all that good anymore I was wondering if the euro indoor meeting is going to be happening again? As the electric meeting looked really good last year :thumbsup:

Do you mean the Petit race in Paris?

They're 2 separate races. The club that hosted the www.euroindoorrace.com (http://www.euroindoorrace.com) is having some internal problems, so the odds of having an indoorrace in 2009 are small...

petitRC is quiet too...

I think Andy talks about the Euro Indoor Race, an indoor dirt track race run on the north of France (Laon) on february 08. I don't have any news for now but the event organizers were planning to run this race each year.

About Petit RC Race last year at Paris. As Smokin said, it was excellent, great, a awesome track!
We really enjoyed to race there and that was an excellent organisation, and a lot of racers (200!) from around Europe! Awesome!

AFAIK, there is nothing about a new Petit RC race, neither a new Euro indoor Race. :(

Few heads up about the Petit RC race. First it won't be held in Paris, more likely be held in the UK, with 3 venues being looked at, and it will most likely take place early 2009 instead of december. For some reason even nearly a year in advance the venues in Paris weren't available.

I know one of the guys that organised the EIR in Laon, this year and spoke him about it.
Seems they defenetly want to organise a new race but are still in planning and mindstorming-fase.

about PetitRC, I received a mail not long ago, explaning that the PetitRC-people encountered problems in finding a proper location. They went as far as looking for a location in Spain, but haven't found anything yet.

...
but as I write this and check more sources I found this on their site, hot news:
Dears drivers,

Sweet!!!!! 20 miles from my house!!!!! They have a great facility there, currently running on road only but have space for a proper indoor off road track, I for 1 am hoping this is true and will happen!!!!:thumbsup:

It looks like the perfect place to fill with dirt and have a proper track, or is that wishful thinking? :woot:

Now you are talking!!!!!! Indoor dirt track, consistent weather conditions, close to the continent, perfect for the Euro's!!!!!!

Ok, your back in the room!!!!!:woot:

Fabs

Lol,

Don't get too excited about dirt it won't happen... :p

The TC room will be used for a few good reasons, the first good reason is that the future Off Road room is in no state to host a track. The other good reason is that the people at maritime have already put in a LOT of effort into that room, and it would be asking a bit too much to get the second room up and running in 3 months...

So the track will be laid over the current TC track. There will be a wall of death, probably a section on the wooden floor at the far end if we deem it useable (the main concern being on drivers being able to see it), the maritime crew have a few good ideas, for example we are thinking about astro turf, for at least a part of the track (how DEER is that thing by the way???).

I think Nicolas went a bit optimistic about the 4 live webcams, but we're looking at it...

What is for sure is that Maritime is, in my opinion, the best permanent indoor venue in the country and hosting this race is a fitting reward for their effort and I am really pleased that they have been chosen. Oh and Ian is the best race director i've ever met, expect no delays on race day (be a bit of a contrast to last year...).

Fabs
24-10-2008, 06:45 PM
Oh and dare I say that I'm hoping that a lot of UK racers will make it to this race? We are planning on 150 entries per class :thumbsup:

David Church
24-10-2008, 06:51 PM
This is relly good news, especially if you live down south!!!!
I figured they would cover the TC surface, to delicate for buggies, if it wasn't we would be racing there regular like!!!!
Ian is a great guy and runs a very effiicient meeting!!!! He ran some of our regional series not too long ago.
It would be great to see an indoor track around here where you can run modified motors:thumbsup:(not taking anything awat from FORCC)

Fabs
24-10-2008, 07:44 PM
As i understand the race will be a great way for the club to promote their venue and get a head start with racing buggies.

about EIR 2009 ...
I'm sorry I didn't noticed this thread earlier.
I posted some info about this competition here (http://www.oople.com/forums/showthread.php?p=205443)

The EIR 2009 will be this weekend :blush:

I would have posted it overhere sooner but when the inscriptions opened, the competition was fully booked within one or two days.
The 2008-edition was held over two weekends, this edition only one. No nitro-buggies this year.
