PRO CLASS

Austrian Martin Wollanka has finally won a VRC World Championship. On the testing Orlando Snowbirds track he outclassed a field of 76 Pro racers (total 264 participants) with a stunning 50 laps in 8 minutes flat. In his WC title run he recorded just 2 encounters with the unforgiving boarding which is remarkable given the cornering speed these tiny cars produce. With this victory Wollanka has once more demonstrated his incredible r/c racing talent in all classes of r/c. Hungarian Barnabas Toth had to settle for second after closing the cap to just 1.3 seconds in lap 25 but a hard crash in lap 42 ended his quest for the 2013 title. Dana Bailes from the US who had dominated the 2013 season in 1:12 racing had an early crash in lap 5 and fought an uphill battle all race long. He had to come from far behind, but 3 crashes between lap 23 and 29 finished his title aspirations. Mustafa Alp from Turkey was chasing Bailes down till lap 30 but couldn’t hol... read more

2013 VRC world Championships 1:10 200mm nitro at Messina - Italy

PRO CLASS
2012 Race2theWorlds winner, 2011 and 2012 VRC World champion and 2013 Italian 1:10 ISTC champion, official Team Associated driver Kevin Pignotti from Italy has added yet another major title to his young r/c racing career. In convincing style he drove to a 1 lap lead victory over UK’s Graham Raistrick and a 2 lap lead over Barnabas Toht from Hungary. The young Italian had to drive hard this time, after 6 minutes into the race there was just 2 seconds separating the first 3 cars! Only in the last 5 minutes Kevin was able to catch Graham to finally put a lap on him. Toth was the only one of the top-3 runners to change tires midway which in the end probably cost him 2nd spot as both Pignotti and Raistrick were able to maintain low lap times until the end.

In Pro Nations ranking Germany took first spot with a strong 4th place finish of Lehmann and 5 cars in the top-23. Austria took 2nd spot with Ingo Graf making the A-Main to ... read more
