TCS 2020 Championship Announcement
The 2020 Tamiya Championship Series TCS Finals has been canceled in light of the current and ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We have made this decision jointly and carefully with the staff at the Hobbytown/Hobby Plex facility late in the hopes that the situation would be improving. Unfortunately, it has not, so we must side on the error of caution to protect all involved, from attendees across the country, to the staff at the Hobby Plex facility, and the Tamiya America staff scheduled to help run the event.
Furthermore, the Tamiya World Championships scheduled to take place this October in Shizuoka City, Japan has also been canceled.
The TCS Regional races of the 2020 season will continue throughout the year where permissible. We are working to reschedule those that were postponed earlier in the year the best we can and contingent on the host hobby shops safe ability to do so. The first rescheduled race took place in Las Vegas’s 702 Raceway. The second rescheduled regional race is taking place at Hobbytown USA/Hobby Plex this weekend (7/18-7/19). Since the TCS Finals is not taking place this year, we have the ability to run rescheduled regional races for the rest of the calendar year and possibly run extra races dependent on conditions.
We wish everyone good health and safety, and we look forward to seeing you at the races in the future!
