Worlds History by Mike Cradock: Messina 2014

mike_cradock

Finally the last and most recent installment of Mike Cradock’s enthralling tales of the Worlds is here, the ‘eventful’ 2014 IFMAR Worlds in Sicily! Home to volcanoes, beautiful women, food, wine and one or two mafiosos! It was a Worlds dominated by Ty Tessmann and Mike takes us through them from his perspective.

It was September 2014 and the 1/8th Offroad World Championships were in Messina, Sicily, Italy. I was travelling with Michelle boarding our 4 hour flight from Luton airport to Cantania, followed by a bus trip to the hotel which was right next to the track in Giardini-Naxos.

We had our worries because of Sicily, Mafia etc.. plus we heard the owner of the track was using the locals laws in his favour to muscle the event, but with any travel it’s an adventure and this is where it started!

Worlds History by Mike Cradock: Argentina 2012

mike_cradock

Argentina 2012 up next and we’re moving towards more modern times – Buenos Aires hosted in December that year, we were looking forward to going to this as we had a fairly dominant year with Elliott Boots and his Kyosho/Novarossi/AKA package.

But again the rumours started on the so called Unsocial networks, saying it’s dangerous it should never be held there bla bla bla! But the only thing I was worried about was getting through customs with all our racing stuff intact, and not to be charged high $$$ to get it through. As I know this was fact from the drivers I had seen stuck there for 12 hours arguing to get out with their racing gear! We were Lucky in a way that we didn’t attend the warm up race.

IFMAR said that they had it sorted, and we had a piece of photo copied paper basically telling the customs officers that we were racing a WC event, and that by taking this stuff into your country it was of no financial gain to us. I didn’t hold too much hope as customs are of a law to themselves!
