1983 IFMAR 1/8th IC World Champs (Oct/Nov 1983 Model Cars)

Post by CAT3K »

Here's a report from the 83 1/8th worlds in Carnoux France.

Looks like there was a fair bit of controversy in this one :shock:

You're welcome :) I've actually got the next months magazine, which has a further review of this race. If i get a chance tomorrow i'll post it.

I think i might have a lot more 1/8 race reports and car reviews. It might take me a while to get them all posted though.

That would be great :D Back in the day I did not have easy access to Model Cars magazines, so I look forward to more vintage 1/8 race reports and reviews.

Thanks :)

I had always heard about the controversy but never read about it... thanks for sharing.

The article's tone is shocking though... can you imagine this kind of nation-calling happening in 2011???

Anyways... all this mess wouldn't have happened if Dallas was already IFMAR boss as opposed to Longshaw... Don't f**k around with Dallas, I'm telling you :mrgreen:
