Sunday 9 september 2012 at FlevOnice.

Be warned, the site is a bid misleading as they still show old pictures and movies from the old location.

Ohh and you will not see me there.

Well, i will be going
For me it`s just a 45 min drive from home.

Last year the sprints went on ok,the only downside was that the track was too narrow for 2 cars @ the same time.
So it was 1 car @ at a time.
No biggie, the queue wasn`t that long ;D

On the other side: the slalom track was quite big.. ;D
Keep it very sideways..

The charme of EFE was sprinting with 2 cars and the battle between them. Thats gone now.

If i want to see 1 car sprinting, i just have to go to a local traffic light.

I have 3 race tracks, within a 1 hour drive, that have drag or sprint races with 2 cars, so for me the choise is easy.

That`s too bad, i wanted to see your Capri in action  :mellow:

If they change the layout a bit, there will be enough space to create a sprint track that`s wide enough for a head to head race.

The space where the slaloms were held is big enough for a sprint track ;D

The capri v8 will be in its stable for now, nicely coverd with blankets. First i have to find a job and get back to work and finish school. If thats done, i still have to build a new engine and i am thinking of modifying the capri for a 4x4 drivetrain.

I dont think they will do heads up race anymore. For years they where talking about canceling the heads up races because the cars went to fast. Now they dont have a track thats wide and long enough so they see there wish coming true.

like i said before: If i want to see 1 car sprinting, i just have to go to a local traffic light.

There could be a problem, i saw this on the news today:

http://nos.nl/artikel/371798-uitstel-van-betaling-voor-flevonice.html (its in dutch)

Flevonice has big financial problems and is bankrupt. They gone try to find someone how wants to take over and has enough money to do a re-start. Its wil be difficult with the economic crisis now.

Its a real punishment to stay 2 days at the nurburg ring ;D

Nothing is certain yet. The xr/rs club has not responed to this message. They have more events on flevonice like the club days.

its final. Flevonice is declared bankrupt today.

Th xr/rs club wil have a meeting with the owners to see if there is a possibility to still hold EFE there and they are also looking for a other location. Nothing is certain yet.

I still don`t get it why they left the Megaland terrain.

That was big enough, and not so far from the Ring.
Maybe they can hold it there again ;D ;D

Or maybe rent a piece of the old American Airbase in Soesterberg.
There are miles and miles of open tracks there :mellow:

That would be the best place to hold EFE. It just needs beter tarmac ;D

From what i heard, it was disagreement about money, and because the club leaders live in the north, they want a place closer to there homes. Flevonice was very close at there homes.

The owner of this track http://www.racewayvenray.com/ already offerd ( a few times) to hold efe there, 3 years ago. The xr/rs club refused. From what i heard, the club did not even talked with the owner.

This place is about 75 km of heerlen, close to the german border.

There is also a airport where classic ford event is hold http://www.classicford.nl/

Thats 50 km from heerlen and close to the border of germany.

A other place is airbase Brustem in Belgium. 30km of maastricht.
