The International Federation of Model Auto Racing (IFMAR) is the world governing body of professional radio controlled car racing.

Contents

The organization was created in 1979 by professional racer and RC model entrepreneur Ted Longshaw. At that time, many different governing bodies operated under their own rules throughout the world. IFMAR was conceived as a way to bring the different, fragmented organizations under a single, governing body. IFMAR's constitution also promotes international friendship and sportsmanship.

Oswald Edgar "Ted" Longshaw was a British businessman who is best known for his involvement in radio-controlled car racing and the foundation of governing bodies for the sport, IFMAR (international), EFRA (Europe), FEMCA and BRCA (UK).

Each of the member blocs organises the IFMAR World Championship event on behalf of IFMAR.

Masami Hirosaka is perhaps the world's most distinguished racer. He has a record of 14 IFMAR World Championships, followed by Lamberto Collari with 9 titles, all within a single category and in nitro powered cars.

Masami Hirosaka is a Japanese radio controlled car driver who is considered to be the world's most successful with a record fourteen IFMAR World Championships in 1/12 scale electric, 1/10 scale Pan, 1/10 scale 2WD off road and 1/10 scale 4WD, all electric. Hirosaka's peers have nicknamed him "Master Masami". He was considered to be one of the highest paid drivers in RC racing, until he retired from the activity. His last IFMAR race was the 2008 world championship in Thailand. His retirement ceremony was on May 3, 2009.

Governing bodies

IFMAR governs RC racing through four international governing bodies, or "blocs" representing 45 member nations and with full voting rights:

The European Federation of Radio Operated Model Automobiles (EFRA) is the governing body of radio-controlled car racing in Europe.

Far East Model Car Association (FEMCA) is the governing body of radio-controlled car racing in Asia and Australasia. It is one of the four member blocs to be entitled to full voting rights within.

Australasia region of Oceania

Australasia comprises Australia, New Zealand, and some neighbouring islands. It is used in a number of different contexts including geopolitically, physiogeographically, and ecologically where the term covers several slightly different but related regions.

Eligibility to IFMAR World Championship event

To be allowed to compete in an IFMAR World Championship event, the competitor has to be a member of a national body (such as ROAR of North America, SARDA from South Africa, BRCA from the United Kingdom, etc.). The competitor has to contact a representative of the body who will determine if they are competent enough to compete in the world championship round. [1] The driver does not specifically have to have qualified in that discipline in which they choose to race (e.g. a driver who is competent in 1:10 on road racing wishes to qualify for 1:8 off-road). [1]

British Radio Car Association

The British Radio Car Association is an organisation that promotes the construction and racing of all types of radio controlled cars in the United Kingdom. Founded in 1971 by Ted Longshaw and Keith Plested, who was also the founder of PB Racing, a manufacturer of RC cars; they coordinate BRCA affiliated clubs in the UK, and offer insurance for any accidents that might occur.
