All of us will be pleased to Wellcome you to Spain. Bilbao is a modern city with very well preserved old areas. The Guggenheim museum is one of its emblematic points. Also, only a few kilometres away from Bilbao, you can enjoy coastal landscapes and highly prized beaches as Mundaka, a s urfers ' paradise.
I also hope that you will enjoy an excellent race and organization. Of course the sun and the beach is already booked for all of you.
Founded in 1994 the Club de Automodelismo Radiocontrolado de Bilbao has nowadays around 100 members and has been involved in the organization of Regional races every year as well as a total of six National Championships.
Because Carbi´s track is in a sports center, the facilities are very wide and complete. Also the new track was opened in 2008 and it is a multisurface and “three-dimensional” track with some parts uphill and downhill.
As organizer its experience is based in more than twenty main events in 1/10th off-road electrics.
All the main events has received a lot of publicity in radio, TV, newspaper. This diffusion generated a big attendance of spectators.
Their challenge now is to offer you a great event, the 1/10th Off-Road European Championship 2009.
