As you’re aware, Japan R/C Drift Community (R.C.D.C.) was launched in February 2015, with the aim of enhancing R/C Drift into the world wide level and pushing it to one of the major competitive sections of R/C motor sport.
The features of R/C Drift include homologated and licensed car bodies that are exactly the same as vehicles you see on the real track. This provides a unique scale look that are easily recognizable to the real drift cars and cool going sideways while driving/drifting.
We believe this new category will attract new people to R/C motor sport since the cars are running around at a safe scale speed, where everybody can enjoy the category even at venues where space is a premium with narrow and small driving areas.
As with the full size motor sport governing body known as the FIA, the R/C industry has a governing body known as IFMAR. IFMAR administrates and organizes R/C motor sport World Championships each year in every country in the world. IFMAR currently has 61affiliated countries who race at World Championships across multiple R/C motor sport disciplines. R.C.D.C is proposing R/C Drift as a new category for IFMAR World Championships in future.
In 2016 R.C.D.C. organizing the successful FEMCA R/C Drift Championship (Asia Cup). FEMCA is an IFMAR block which represents Far East countries of IFMAR.
We are now pleased to announce the IFMAR R/C Drift World Cup to be held in April 2018 at Yatabe Arena in Japan.
The 2018 IFMAR Drift World Cup will be the first IFMAR R/C drift world competition run before being adopted as a new category in the IFMAR World Championship schedule. Upon successful completion of the 2018 IFMAR Drift World Cup as a new category of R/C motor sport recognized by the governing body, the IFMAR Drift World Championship will be launched.
We look forward to growing our category and will continue to work hard to achieve IFMAR World Championship status.
