Experimentation with setup changes is as easy as clicking a mouse button, no wrenching or vehicle breakdown required and best of all, there's no risk of breaking parts!

Virtual RC racing hero Kevin Pignotti has sealed the 2012 title in 1:8 nitro sportscars. After reigning in the Race2theWorlds 1:10 electric contest in the middle of this year, the 16 year old Italian took victory in 5 and 3 second places in the series to win the 2012 title. Austrian Martin Wollanka and Italian Giorgio Mingotti completed the podium at the end of the 2012 season. With 5 racers in the top-18 Italy was by far the strongest country, followed by surprise Austria and Great Britain in third.

Expect to see a fierce battle between T-Rex and Kevin for the upcoming 2012 VRC Worlds title in this class at Clermont Ferrand!
