SEASON 2016 electric nascartruck modified, round 8, Jundiai Sao Paolo

TIMED PRACTICE

Starting round of this event, three drivers were separated from others with their own laps. Two Italians, Giordano and Andreuccetti and Huhtala from Finland hitted 18 laps, all inside 2.5 seconds.
Fourth fastest driver was Dunkl from Austria, having 12 seconds gap to the leader Giordano. Philippe Gross from Switzerland and Steve Pitts from USA got fifth and sixth place from this round. Dunkl, Gross and Pitts were really close each other, all inside 2 seconds.
But it was expected, that next round would show us, how tight that top would be. Many drivers left this round without driving, cause it was not mandatory.
Like in earlier races, everybody was just getting miliar with the track, as it had very tricky corners and alltitude difference 3 meters.

PROVISIONAL SCHEDULE SEASON 3

03.08.2016   14 comments   Category: Site news

We have now started planning the events for 2016 Season 3. The provisional schedule is posted below.
As you can see many of the events will be raced in reversed direction. Our policy is to race all the tracks in both directions as much as possible. When planning the tracks we are looking at the tracks used in the previous seasons (sometimes up until 4 seasons ago) and also which direction was used. In this way we offer you the maximum variety of tracks.

We know that not everyone like to race tracks in reversed directions but why not? It usually means a complete new layout to learn and as such it is almost the same as driving on an entirely new track. For on-road tracks reversed direction should not be any issue. For off-road tracks, although the jumps have been designed to suit both directions, this is a bit more sensitive, some tracks just don't flow well.

You have another 2 weeks to chew on the track selection for Season 3 before we implement the new schedule. Season 3 will start on Saturday Septemb... read more

2016 Season 1 and round 7, Oslo

Oslo was very first VRC V3 track. A short fast track with a few tricky corners to get right, especially the end of the backstraight.

TIMED PRACTICE

In timed practice it looked that Canadian driver Robert Woloschuk and Finland`s J-P.Huhtala was setting the pace to others. But finally Italian talent, Andrea Giordano beated those two with two seconds margin. Andrea`s average laptime was 14.879, and this gave a little direction to others what pace should be, if you wanted to be on top. Huhtala`s and Woloschuk`s average was one 10th slower. Fourth fastest in this round was Philippe Gross from Switzerland. Philippe was eight seconds behind Giordano, and average was over 0.4 secods slower than Giordano`s. But this was so early stage in this event, and everybody was just getting miliar with this track.

2016 Season 1 and round 6, Kissimmee Short

After Carpet 2 race it was time to travel to USA and Kissimmee Short circuit. Sixth round of Electric Nascartruck series was competed here.
The track is very technical, but of course it needs good speed at main and skills to drive very tight and precise line at those tight corners.

TIMED PRACTICE
In timed practice, Italian talent Andrea Giordano was setting the pace to others. Of course it was just begining of this event, and more pace was waited to the next rounds. But in this point, fastest average laptime was 12.985.

QUALIFYING
At qualifying round, three Britain laprobots were joined also to this event. Fletcher, Thorn and Raistrick were those names at top when qualifying ended. Dont know, was Thorn and Raistrick still in ”cooling mode”, because Fletcher`s average 12.693 was looking overwhelming at this point. I would... read more
