EFRA AGM 2023 NEWS

The EFRA AGM (Annual General Meeting) is in full swing in Malmö with a good turnout of federations and representatives (we even had to add more tables and chairs!). The AGM is an important event in the EFRA calendar where all federations and members present their proposals for rule changes and other initiatives. Once proposals are presented and discussed, national federations alone (not the EFRA board) discuss proposals and cast their votes! EFRA board members are very rarely required to cast the deciding vote in the case of a tie.

Today (Saturday) saw the general topics presented to all delegates with sections (the various Racing classes) splitting into breakout rooms to focus on specific changes related to their own sections.

Sunday AM will see the remaining and any other business topics discussed in the main room.

Here’s what we have so far:

(please note that the minutes of the various meetings will contain the specific technical details of the rules changes below)

1/8 Buggy

  • Masters 40+ will use a spec tyre
  • An official driver ranking system will be used for European drivers participating in EFRA & IFMAR events
  • Electric event winners who win after the A1 and A2 Finals will not be allowed to race in the A3 Final
  • Racers in the EC (European Championships) will now be split in groups of 24 drivers instead of 36 drivers
