This weekend's JMRCA Nationals for 1/10-scale 2WD and 4WD buggy is also serving as the official warm-up race for the 2015 IFMAR World Championships later this year, and some of the fastest drivers from North America and Europe - including multi-time World Champions Ryan Cavalieri and Jared Tebo, along with European Champion Lee Martin - made the trip to compete on the astroturf surface that has been laid over the carpet course at the famous Japanese facility.
While the LiveRC broadcast crew did not make the trip to Japan, the track is using LiveTime and they've set up a staticwebcam so that you can watch the racing action. Will the winner this weekend carry his momentum into the Worlds in October? There's only one way to find out!
The first round of practice is on the track right now - don't miss a single lap of the IFMAR Pre-Worlds!
