VRC PRO 2016 SEASON 3 1:8 NITRO BUGGY ROUND 6, Silver Dollar 3

This was season closer of 1:8 Nitro Buggy series. Sixth round was helded here in Silver Dollar 3 track, and it was driven in reversed direction.
American Warren Jones was setting the fastest pace during the qualifying. Warren`s average 30.833 was something enormous, when we saw that second place driver Jonas Larsson from Sweden, was almost 13 seconds behind him. But that wasnt bad run by Jonas, but that 31.731 average wasnt good enough to challenge Jones of the lead.
Third fastest, Britains Michael Lightfoot, had 16 seconds to TQ. Lightfoot`s run was stable, with just under 32 seconds average. Behind Lightfoot, only with 0.3 seconds distance was Mikael Yrjänäinen from Finland.

His run was very clean and this secured 3 seconds margin to Hillman. This was looking promising for Stacey, as his average laptime was two 10th`s faster than Hillman`s. But have to remember, Hillman made 6 seconds mistake at lap 5, and without that, he would be clearly at TQ place. Third fastest, Cyrille Payet from Reunion Island had also some struggles at laps 7 and 10. Those incidents gave him almost 10seconds of extra time and finally he was over 6 seconds behind TQ. Fourth grid went Jonas Larsson from Sweden. Holding second position in series, 6 points behind Hillman, this was good save from Jonas. But also he did mistake at lap 4, what gave him 5 seconds ... read more
