The Model Off-Road Buggy Club in Perth, Australia has been chosen to host the 2018 IFMAR 1:8 Nitro Off-Road World Championships - so the MORBC put together this awesome promotional video. The 17th recognized championship for the category will be the first off-road Worlds in Australia since the 1989 electric off-road event in St. Ives, New South Wales. The 1:8 IC Track world championships were held in Sydney in 2001, while Brisbane served as the location for the 2006 200mm nitro touring and 2007 1:5 IC Touring title races.

The club-managed track hosted the 2015 FEMCA 1:8 Nitro Off-Road Championships and will host the 2017 event as well. They also hosted a round of the 2016 Australian Radio Controlled Model Car Club national championship series. Coincidentally, the track is mere minutes away from the home of LiveRC announcer Chris Mitchell. Party at his house!
