1985 IFMAR Offroad 1/10 World Championships

Post by HBrownJr »

I traveled to Del Mar in July of 1985 to attend the first 1/10 scale off road championships. I had a 35mm SLR camera and took 50+ pictures. Some good, some not so good. The pictures were on display in my hobby shop until I closed it in the early 90's. If you want to take a look I have them in an album on Flickr.

Just wonderful , thank you so much :D
Some of the pictures are of cars so modified it's untrue , a Grasshopper with a hotshot gearbox and double wishbone front suspension , the prototype Samurai on track 8) and to my surprise a heavily modded SRB still kicking in 85 :!:
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.
A problem shared is a problem halved but an advantage shared is no advantage at all.

Thank you so much! It's amazing that such quality photo sets emerges after so long. This must be the best one from the '85 Worlds that I have seen to date. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you for taking those pictures in 1985! Amazing photos, and a real treasure!
I posted photos from a Japanese magazine on the 1985 race on this forum, so I am very happy I got to see your photos to see what is was like.
Feel free to add your experiences /comments from attending the race if you still remember :)
