Not only is this the first time that the IFMAR Worlds has been held on an astroturf surface, but the track layout itself is about as far removed from the last world championship race as possible. It's significantly smaller than the gigantic dirt track at Silver Dollar RC Raceway in Chico, CA, but is still decorated with eight jump sections of all different sizes - including one of the trickiest bump sections every.
Before the start of practice, reigning 2WD champion Jared Tebo took us for a stroll around the course for our Fantom Racing track map.
