VRC PRO 2018 RallyX round5 VRC rallyX3


In qualifying Hong Kong's Carson Yeung was unbeatable. This laprobot was overwhelming, leaving the French Arthur Brule 35 seconds behind in to second grid. Lithuanian Arturas Svoba was third fastest, 4 seconds behind Brule.

In the final, Yeung was totally overwhelming. Despite Brule`s lightning start and lead from the start, Yeung was just too strong for him. Already in the second lap, at the backstraight triple, Brule made mistake and Yeung passed him. From this point Carson never look back and took convincing victory in here. Just unbelievable drive. Brule instead had to make full job to get to the second place. He had some troubles with rhytm and the focus wasnt there. Ok, he had the pace like Yeung but that one bigger mistake in lap 9 was crucial in this fight. SO, Arthur had to settle to second position.

From the third place, we saw exiting battle between Svoba and Weber. Svoba who started from third and Weber from fourth grid, fighted very intence final. Svoba`s five mistakes against Weber`s four solved this battle. Weber crossed the line in third place, 18 seconds behind Brule in second spot. Svoba had to settle to 4th.

At SPORT level, Tony Delmastro was the fastest and won the race with 4 second margin before Michael Zappa. Greek Christos Katsigiannis was third, 16 seconds away from the winner.

At CLUB level Jeremie Gautier totally crushed his opponents. Five laps margin to second place driver was something special. Ok, this only tells that Jeremie is honestly higher level driver than CLUB driver. With his pace, he would have been clear winner in SPORT level and 7th in PRO level. Great drive Jeremie, taking nothing away from your great victory. Just wanted to tell community how good drivers we have in lower levels. Congrats, and cant wait your future races.
Peter Elphinstone from Canada crossed the line in second place and American Bill Harrison was third. There was 5 second separating these two at the finishline.
