After much planning we are pleased to announce the dates for the much anticipated 2011/12 Euro Offroad Series. Scotty Ernst and Uwe Rheinard, the organizers behind the very successful Euro Touring Series ‘ETS’, have taken their format and formula and will be bringing it to the exciting world of Offroad. 1/10th Offroad racing in Europe is seeing tremendous growth over the past year and the EOS will embrace that growth and bring an organized racing series that will travel around Europe focusing on the fun and excitement that Offroad brings.
Earlier this year we had our pilot race in Sweden and it attracted the top European offroad aces as well as the attention of some of the best US drivers. Making the trip over from the USA was now current World Champion Ryan Cavalieri and Reedy Race Champion and current US Champion Dustin Evans and for our inaugural season we are expecting continued support from some of the top US drivers.
A three round series, round 1 will now kick off in the Czech Republic at the Sport-V Hotel in Hrotovice on February 10-12 2012, while round 2 is will be held in Charleroi, Belgium in March. Wanting to go out with a bang the finals are scheduled for April at the Intermodellbau Dortmund Hobby Show, Europe’s largest consumer Hobby Show. This will be a very exciting event and a great way to showcase to the large crowds how exciting our form of racing can be.
Entries for round 1 can now be made at www.myrcm.ch. This event will fill up fast and very possibly sell out, so make your plans and signup for the first EOS event and find out how much fun you can have racing with us. We look forward to seeing you in the Czech Republic for round 1 of the EOS.
UPDATE: Round 1 which was originally to be held in the UK has been cancelled due to calendar conflicts which has made it impossible to be run in this first season of the EOS.
Round 1 – 10-12 February 2012 – Hrotovice, Czech Republic Round 2 – 09-11 March 2012 – Charleroi, Belgium Round 3 – 20-22 April 2012 – Dortmund, Germany
