VRC PRO 2016 SEASON 3 Electric buggy spec, round 2, Naxos

Swedish offroad talent Robert Hillman, has wonned second round of electric buggy spec race.
Race was held at Naxos track. Hillman was fastest at qualifying and also in Final. But he didnt get this easy, as Canadian driver Andrew Bucar was chasing him whole time at final.
Honestly, Bucar was also in fire, he got the lead at lap 4 when Hillman made mistake. From that lap Hillman didnt surrender, he was pushing really good laps and with consistent run he managed to beat this Canadian offroader.


With three mistakes, Hillman had his own pace. Well deserved win from Robert.

Bucar`s mistake at lap 6 made this also bit easier for Hillman, as it took almost 4 seconds extra to Bucar`s lap. But it was close, there was only two 10th`s difference per lap, between the... read more

2016 SEASON 3 1:10 ISTC ROUND 2, OSAKA 2

Finnish, Awesomatix factory driver Viljami Kutvonen showed magnificent pace during the qualifying. He was consistent and fast, but didnt get this easy. German driver Christoph Kirchhefer was pushing really hard and was really close to beat this Finnish laprobot.

SEASON 2016 electric nascartruck modified, round 9, Lloret de Mar


TIMED PRACTICE

In timed practice, comparing to earlier events, nothing spectacular happened.
Once again, Italian talent Andrea Giordano was the furiost and was setting the pace to others.
Switzerlands Patrick Bader was closest to Giordano, but almost five seconds behind.
Behind Bader, was another Italian laprobot, Tommaso Andreuccetti. Andreuccetti had good run and was only 1.5 seconds slower than Bader. Fourth fastest, Finlands Jukka-Pekka Huhtala was in pretty same pace as Andreuccetti, only 0.1seconds behind. Fifth place went Switzerland Philippe Gross, difference to leader 8,6 seconds.
So, Giordano had came here with very aggressive style and good setup. With his average, he was allready in this point, one top candidates to take this event.

I want to pay tribute to Ron Ton, my partner in Serpent from 1979 till 1993. Ron Ton was a brilliant engineer and craftsman. Ron was key in the early success of Serpent which established Serpent as a r/c racing brand amidst the major brands in those days Associated, Kyosho, SG, PB. You could even say that without that early success VRC would probably never have been created. His true love has always been model airplanes and model airplane engines. R/C has lost one of his great engineers and characters.
