F3F international contests 2012

Hi all,
I came across infos this morning (apparently 2 months later than at least our Spanish colleagues), that the FAI is setting up a new F3F competition series called "World Cup" this coming season 2012. The initiative apprently comes from Franz Demmler, GER, after the withdrawal/rejection of his German Open from the Contest Eurotour circuit this last season.
Apparently, following events enter this new series:
- German Open (if followed by the Open German Championship, it would be a great opportunity for training in Rügen before the WC!)
- Saint Iria Race Lisboa, Portugal
- Spring Cup in Gdansk, Poland
- Donaupokal in Austria
- Asturias in Spain
There seems the Typhoon Race to be held in South-Corea is also in discussion to integrate this World Cup, as well as eventually a contest organized by Kyle Paulson (California?).
The final World Cup ceremony would apparently be held at the FAI headquarter in Lausanne, Switzerland.
If all this is confirmed, it would be a strong shortage of possible F3F Contest Eurotour events in 2012, since an event may certainly not be part of both series.
I think all pilots would like to prepare their competition calendar for the 2012 season. On my side I would like to learn what the intentions of the individual organizing countries are (Eurotour or World Cup).
If anyone has some confirmation or more information, thanks to leave comments.
Cheers
Reto
