Series 2020

The gemcseries (or Geneva championship) are organized by genevamodelcars and open to all, regardless of age or driving skills. Whether you are a beginner, participating in your first race, or a more experienced driver, these races are for you. The rules – moderated engines, imposed tires, banned additives, sugar prepped track – as well as the racing format have been adjusted over time to maximize your enjoyment whilst practicing your hobby.

This championship, which has existed for many years, attracts more and more beginners and advanced drivers. Over the years, we have managed to make it competitive while maintaining a spirit of sharing with fair play as the watchword. Feel free to participate, the more drivers there are, the better the gemcseries events are.

Questions? Problems? E.g. “Is my motor and / or car fit to participate?”, “I do not have the right tires, what to do “, etc.? Feel free to ask your questions on our forum, we’ll answer and will make every effort to find a solution.
