...but what is required to be a recognised manufacturer? Is there a certain amount of sold bikes required?
What about establishing an open class for every 1:5 scale bike, no matter if series or prototype, stock or modified?
I think we should encourage designers like Patrick (and me
) who try new concepts apart from that common design that was developed in the late 80s in Italy and was always, more or less, copied until today. Just compare the new TT Nitro with the old DWA Commando...
When you look at the results of the SV race you will see it makes sense to rethink old concepts.
I would like to participate in a race in the UK with one of my prototypes, just to compare it with the mass produced bikes or even better with some other newly designed bikes. Possibly i will ask one of the experienced british pilots to drive it.
