Euro Offroad Series announced

The organisers of the hugely popular Euro Touring Series will bring their successful concept off-road with the announcement that they are to create a ‘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.

In a year which Europe hosts the 1:10 Off Road World Championships, 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. Having persuaded the ETS organisation to create the new series, 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.

1:10 2WD & 4WD Buggy along with 2WD Short Course Truck will make up the ‘Euro Offroad Series’ programme with full details of the race format, rules and information on travelling to the Sweden to be announced over the coming days.

In the meantime all inquiries can be directed to Uwe Rheinard at – uwe.rheinard@t-online.de.
