RC Racing TV has today received news about the 2014 Electric On-Road World Championships. As you probably know by now, the event will take place in Florida at Full Throttle Speedway. There’s been a lot of discussion about the 1/12th event – in particular whether it will be held on the tarmac track or indoors on carpet. RCTV’s Oli Meggitt even wrote a column about the situation for our friends at Red RC.
ROAR has now confirmed that they explored a number of options for hosting the event at a temporary indoor venue, but decided that approach wasn’t feasible. Therefore, both the ISTC Touring Car and 1/12th World Championships will be held on the (newly repaved!) asphalt circuit at Full Throttle Speedway.
We’ll keep you up to date with more news on this as it’s sure to provoke some interesting reaction and comments from manufacturers and potential competitors!
