The organizers of the hugely popular “Euro Touring Series” have announced that they will be bringing their concept off-road with the creation of the ‘Euro Offroad Series’. Catering for 1:10 electric off-road classes, the EOS is the result of 12-months of lobbying by a number of top off-road racers to get ETS founders Uwe Rheinard and Scotty Ernst to bring the profile and fun element of their electric touring car series to 1:10 off-road, a category which is currently enjoying a strong resurgence in Europe. Good for them!
Europe also hosts the 1:10 Off Road World Championships this year, so the EOS will kick off with a 3-day pilot event in Sweden at the beginning of April before the staging of a multi round series scheduled to begin next October. Europe’s top drivers have been quick to get behind the first EOS race, which will run on an indoor clay track, with current European Champion Lee Martin, former champions Marc Rheinard, Hupo Honigl & Jorn Neumann, last weekend’s Petit RC race winner Paul Bradby along with Swedish stars Viktor Wilck and David Ronnefalk already confirming they will travel to Tomelilla for the April 1-3 event. Sounds like it will be a pretty exciting and entertaining event with names like that.
1:10 2WD & 4WD Buggy along with 2WD Short Course Truck will make up the ‘Euro Offroad Series’ program with full details of the race format, rules and information on traveling to the Sweden to be announced over the coming days.
