CLASH OF THE TITANS AT LLORET DE MAR

PRO LEVEL
American ‘Juggernaut’ Joshua Berman looked to defend his 1.8 Nitro Sportscar Spec Series title in the first event of the second series in 2017. Ireland’s Austin Elliot, Series 1 third place finisher, set the pace early with a 30 lap 07:13.772 run. Shortly thereafter the Juggernaut, posted a 30 lap 7:11.882 run. American Kevin Bacon, Series 1 second place finisher, posted a 30 lap 7:09.358, besting Berman by over 2 seconds. But Berman wasn’t done. He quickly posted another run of 30 laps 7:06.882; 5 seconds faster than his first run and looked untouchable.

Enter 7x’s VRC World Champion Jeffrey Rietveld of the Netherlands. Rietveld topped Berman’s run with an impressive 30-lap 7:02.992. Rietveld’s run was nearly four seconds faster than Berman and contained something that no other run contained… 13.7 second laps. To this point only a handful of racers had even touched 13.9 second laps. Berman had posted 13.8s, but Rietv... read more

2017 SEASON 1 1:10 ELECTRIC TC 13.5T SPEC ROUND 8 MB Models Raceway

Electric spec touring cars ended season 1 at MB Modells raceway. This track was one of the community favourites as track designs were voted. And no doubt, some likes and some hates it, but it is demanding, technical and needs very precise and good rhytm. Big thanks to Graham Raistrick bringing this fantastic track to contest.

So, last race of 1:10 electric spec series of SEASON 1, was held at this track and very same guys were in top like earlier season races. Bailes, Löb, Nedrebo, Yeung, Yanagisawa, Saputra and many others were in here and expectations for good race were high.

At PRO level Austrian Christoph Löb was fastest at qualifying round, leaving American Dana Bailes almost two seconds behind. Michitaka Yanagisawa from Japan was third fastest, but he was almost five seconds away from Löb`s ... read more

All events for the 2017 Season 2 are now published.

2-ROUND EVENT MODE
Following earlier discussions, the event mode is back to 2 rounds, Qualifying from Saturday till Wednesday morning, and Main finals from Wednesday morning till Monday morning. This means a weekend plus 2 week-days for qualifying, and 3 week-days plus a weekend for the Main finals. Qualifying now has full weight again because your qualifying position determines which A-Main final you are going to race in.

NEW: OVERALL COMBINED RANKING
A new prestigeous OVERALL COMBINED ranking is introduced starting Season 2. All Season 2 events in modified class will count towards this new ranking, onroad, offroad and rally combined. To start, the ranking will use your best 10 scores of your latest 15 results (ranking filter). As this is a new ranking without prior history it will take a approx. 2 months before we will get a true picture. The ranking filter will be reset end of August.

NEW: WEEKLY RANKINGS

2017 SEASON 1 RallyX spec ROUND 8 RALLY X2

Rally X2 track was hosting last race and season closer of RallyX spec serie. Drivers had found the way to tackle those demanding elevated curves and this looked good.

PRO level

In PRO level, Finnish Ilari Lamminsivu seemed to set the pace to others after two rounds and managed to get the pole for the main. Hong Kong`s laprobot Carson Yeung was standing at second place after semifinal, 10 seconds behind TQ driver. American Ely Rojas in third grid was tough opponent in here, as we knew that he was holding lap record almost every class at this track. So, was it ”hiding the speed” from Ely, main would give us an answer.
As the tone shouted for main, Rojas took lighting start and got the lead. But he made early mistake at lap 4 and dropped back of the pack. Lamminsivu and Yeung fighted at lead and Rojas start his furios way t... read more
