Sao Paulo, home of the 2004 IFMAR World Championships for 1:10 nitro cars. This track is built on the slope of a hill, and slopes away from you some 3 meters (down...), making this a one of a kind track. Thrilling and exciting!

Ladies and gentlemen, take a seat, and watch the movie « Batman VS Superman» !

The cars are on the grid. The horn blows, annnnd this is the staaaart !
Everybody take a good start, except for Graham Raistrick who loses positions. Martin is immediatly in the lead thanks to his top qualifying. Jeffrey Rietveld is very aggresive, and try to pass him during the first lap. He almost succeed, but « Batman » is a fighter of the darkness, so he uses his unhuman skills to keep the lead.
At the end of the first lap, Martin is first, Jeffrey is 2nd, Nuno Correia is 3rd, Massimo Alliprandi 4th, Joshua Berman 5th, Alex Guillot 6th, Graham Raistrick 7th, Pierre Dumusc 8th, Milan Peka 9th, and Dominic Chaffard in the 10th and last spot.
Soon, Martin and Jeffrey make the difference with the others. Martin driving with a incredible style, sliding at the entry of the corners, this way he's able to brake very late.


Martin sliding before the corner to turn faster.

Behind them, Nuno Correia and Massimo Alliprandi show us a beautiful fight also for the 3rd spot. The same between Alex Guillot, Graham Raistrick, and Joshua Berman for the 5th spot. Pierre Dumusc and Milan Peka fight together for the 8th spot.
Martin « Batman » Wollanka spreads all his strenght at each lap, each corner, so well that at the 7th lap he's so close to the inside, that he slightly hits a curb and continues on two wheels during several meters, without really losing time. Batman has tightrope walker talent. His best lap is incredible : 14.632s. In the second spot, Jeffrey's best lap is : 14.780. He seems to be unable to catch Martin. But don't forget that he is « Superman », and the battle just starts.
All the other drivers run in 15 secondes by lap, so you can easily imagine the pace of the two superheroes in the lead. About the driving style of Martin Wollanka, just take a look at how he goes out of the famous big left before the straight line, where so many drivers went out in the grass.

At five minutes, Martin stops in the pit lane. Jeffrey is 3.236 behind in the 2nd spot. Graham raistrick has made a great come back, taking the 3rd spot, followed very closely by Massimo Alliprandi, and Nuno Correia in the same second. Alex Guillot is 6th, Joshua Berman is 7th, Milan Peka is 8th, Dominique Chaffard is 9th, and Pierre Dumusc has fallen at the last spot after a mistake.

During two laps, Jeffrey « Superman » is first, thanks to the pit stop of Martin, but he also has to stop at the 22th lap. Martin takes back the lead of this race.

During the 30th lap, Martin goes out to loose of the big left, and goes straight in the pit lane full throttle, and lose no time. He makes a lap in 14.800s even this way. Jeffrey is now more than 5s behind.

At 10 minutes, Martin « Batman » increases his domination on Jeffrey « Superman » who is now at almost 7 secondes of the leader. Joshua Berman is 3rd, Nuno Correia is 4th, Graham Raistrick 5th, Massimo Alliprandi 6th, Alex Guillot 7th, Milan Pekka 8th, Pierre Dumusc 9th, Dominique Chaffard 10th.

At 15 minutes, nothing has changed in the lead. Things happen in the back with Graham Raistrick who is now in the 3rd spot, Massimo Alliprandi has came back from the 6th spot to the 4th, Nuno Correia is 5th, Joshua Berman has fallen to the 6th spot, Alex Guillot is 7th, Milan Peka 8th, Dominique Chaffard has overtaken Pierre Dumusc for the 9th spot.

Finaly Martin « Batman » Wollanka wins the fight versus Jeffrey « Superman » Rietveld !!!
Maybe we will see « Batman VS Superman II the revenge» next time. It would be epic.

Interview with Martin Wollanka :



"My Feeling was good I have some fun on this track. 
It is not easy to be fast on this track. You need to drive a perfect line. 
The right hight was in my fist run not perfect, so I was at the end not so fast . In the second run I change it a bit and it works much better, not perfect, but good. 
VRC is a very good Simulator. It helps me in my real races. Since I drive VRC, I'm much more consistent, and do not much mistakes."

Very good!!

Hi Guys,

Thanks for your compliments.

It seems that the pics have been erased. It was pics with Marvel Superheroes, so it's maybe the reason. Peter could tell it maybe.

Tony, it's simple; When a race is finished, I choose a driver for differents reasons, and I ask him if he's ok for answering some questions. Generaly, drivers are happy of that.
29.03.2016 [10:17]
Awesome report. Thanks a lot for your efforts.
Cheers
