Announcements Rules changes after the annual general meeting of EFRA & 2024 race calendar novembre 20, 2023 by Chris Laisser un commentaire This past weekend was held the annual general meeting of EFRA in Malmö with a good turnout of federations and representatives. The AGM is an important event in the EFRA calendar where all federations and members present their proposals for rule changes and other initiatives. Once proposals are presented and discussed, national federations alone (not the EFRA board) discuss proposals and cast their votes. EFRA board members are very rarely required to cast the deciding vote in the case of a tie. Here’s what was voted on, and the minutes of the various meetings will contain the specific technical details of the rule changes below: 1/8th buggy: Masters 40+ will use a spec tyre An official driver ranking system will be used for European drivers participating in EFRA & IFMAR events Electric event winners who win after the A1 and A2 Finals will not be allowed to race in the A3 Final Racers in the EC (European Championships) will now be split in groups of 24 drivers instead of 36 drivers Large scale: LSTC( Large Scale Touring Car) will split into 2 classes: Sport class using standard Zenoah engines Open class allowing any size flywheel LSTC will now use round-by-round qualifying LSTC will now have 20-minute Semifinals LSTC has new bodyshell rules to allow and encourage newer, modern bodies LSTC will now be limited to a maximum of 3 EFRA GP races each year 1/8th on-road, 1/10th on-road, GT8, GT8E: European Championship races will now run over 4 days, from Wednesday to Saturday Superpole qualifying for the Main Final has been voted out, with the top 4 racers now promoted directly into the Main Final The EFRA GP Series has been canceled Wet cars are now allowed in GT8 and GT8E Rolling starts for Qualifying (as opposed to staggered pit lane starts) are now official Body weights for 1/10 TC and GT8 have increase to 90g and 250g respectively Electric sections (1/10th touring car, 1/12th on-road, 1/10th off-road): Vote of no confidence in the Chairman was not seconded and therefore dismissed Paul Worsely re-elected as Chairman of the Section New Vice-Chairman voted in: Nuno Casak Rubeiro (FEPRA, Portugal) Electric event winners who win after the A1 and A2 Finals will not be allowed to race in the A3 Final EFRA-Race-Calendar-v2-2024Télécharger Source: EFRA Partagez13TweetezEnregistrer13 PartagesAbout ChrisFounder of circusrc.com, journalist & photographer in the RC world for several years, Chris is passionate about RC, racing and technique.
