2017 SEASON 2 1:8 NITRO NASCAR TRUCKS ROUND 9 Kakegawa Tamiya

It was 9th round of 1:8 nitro nascar truck serie. Multiple Worlchampions and WC A-finalists were joined also to this event, so we waited great race.
Andrea Giordano started furiosly, he was fastest at qualifying and left another Worldchampion Joshua Berman to second place, with 10 seconds margin. Andreuccetti had third fastest pace, and was only one second away from Berman`s pace. Well, this was just beginning and everybody was getting miliar with the track and was searching the setup.

In quarter finals, things started to get serious, as the two Worldchampions, Giordano and Berman setted the pace, with 16.3 average. Britains talent Raistrick was now third, five second behind top2.
Spaniard Alejandro Prieto was also in good pace, he was at fourth spot, 5 seconds behind Raistrick.

Bailes is currently the reigning 1.12 Spec VRC World Champion and has always been a dominate force in 1.12 Spec. This recent win makes it 5-in a row for 1.12 finals where Bailes has posted a final run.


Dana Bailes Dominated the Pro A-main

However, the real story with this event was the battle for the final two podium positions. It was an extremely tight battle between three racers; “The Great” Graham Raistrick (UK), Kevin Bacon (US) and the 2016 1.10 Nitro World Champion, Andrea Giordano (IT). Raistrick qualified second and took the lead early. Bacon and Giordano followed close behind. Bacon slowly began to real in Raistrick and overtook him on by lap 11. ... read more

2017 SEASON 2 1:10 NITRO SEDANS SPEC ROUND 3 Atsugi 2

PRO level

Atsugi 2 was hosting third round race of 1:10 nitro sedan spec serie. In gualifying Graham Raistrick was setting the pace to others. Hitting that great result, with average 13.6, he was only one who managed to get on 23rd lap. Second place was driven by Alejandro Prieto, but he was way back from ”Racetricks” pace, over 10 seconds with average 14.0. Portuguese Nuno Lourenco was third, 1.2 second behind Prieto. Manuel Weber was fourth and Izidor Tratnik fifth.
Serie leader Massimiliano Tanturri was sixth fastest, and he needed to find something to his pace, if he wanted to hold his lead at overall points.

As the horn shouted for the main, three drivers were separated from the rest of the pack. Raistrick, Lourenco and Tanturri were those three, who had very similar start. Even Raistrick had won the quali... read more

SNEAK PREVIEW OF FUTURE PROJECTS

GT3 CLASS
We are currenly working on a 1:8 scale nitro GT3 class based on the 1:8 nitro on-road chassis. The GT3 car uses front and rear differentials and rubber tires to create a different driving experience at about 90% of the performance level of the 1:8 nitro sportscar class. This new class should be easy and fun to drive and therefore will have very limited setup options. We expect to see some very exciting racing in this new class. Release is planned for the 2017 VRC Worlds.

BUMP-UP FINALS
We are working an an alternative race format with bump-up semi finals. In short, after qualifying the top 1...4 will proceed directly to the main final, others will be split up in 2..6 semi finals from which the winners or first 2 will proceed to the main final. We are designing the new format in such a way that we are flexible in the number of direct main finalists and number of semi finals. We expect that this new 'bump-up' format will inject new enthusiasm into our on... read more
