2016 IFMAR World Champion David Ronnefalk from Sweden has claimed his first VRC World Championship title by winning the 15 minute long A-Main open final 1:8 electric buggies at the RC Tracks of Las Vegas off-road track, the very same track Ronnefalk won his IFMAR Worlds title 3 months before.

2014 VRC World Champion Marcin Maliński from Poland took second 2nd some 9 seconds back on Ronnefalk, and pole-sitter Warren Jones from the US snatched away 3rd from Swede Robert Hillman in the very last corner.

For David Ronnefalk it was a 'take off and never look back' final without too many trouble. Warren Jones had the speed but got himself in trouble just too often, clearly lacking the consistency that David demonstrated with his commanding lead. Just 3 laps before the end Jones was back in 5th but managed to clinch 3rd place right on the finish line.

A-MAIN FINAL

1 | David Ronnefalk | SE | 26 | 15:10.155
2 | Marcin Maliński | PL | 26 | 15:19.483
3 | Warren Jones | US | 26 | 15:29... read more

Nitro sedan spec WORDLTITLE was solved at MELZO circuit in Italy. Allready from qualifying round it was pretty clear, who was man to chase in here. American Joshua Berman was looking very convincing from his first runs. Those under 21s laps were in target, and Joshua did this in perfect style. At semifinal round Berman gave a knock-out to others, hitting absolutely fantastic run and nobody couldnt answer that. Graham Raistrick was standing in second place heading for A-main, but even he didnt know how to gain Berman. Huhtala was in third and Saputra in fourth place.

VRC PRO WORLDCHAMPION of 1:12 spec class CARPET JPH

From semifinal it was allready obvious that American Dana Bailes was the man to beat, as he wonned that round with 2 seconds margin to Viljami Kutvonen from Finland.
Unfortunatelly Kutvonen were not at the grid when FINAL was arranged. But there was blenty other gladiators to challenge Dana of the title. Multible WC finalist Graham Raistrick was in third grid, and other Brit, Reece Hodges at fourth grid. Raistrick result in semifinal was over 4 seconds slower than Dana`s, but this Britains laprobot had not showed everything yet.
So, it was looking Bailes and Raistrick fight, if others wouldnt find anything for the FINAL.

TIMED PRACTICE

Season last race and closer of electric nascartruck series was helded here at Keitune Oval. Everybody was pointing to American Jimmy Flack, when some expectations were asked of race winner.
