I think VRC Pro has helped me a lot. Since I use VRC I drive much more consistent and make not many mistakes. So I could do the 1 hour final at the Euros without mistakes! I made only two mistakes, I let Ronnefalk pass too easily at the beginning of the race and when Robert Battle was one lap behind me I also gave him a free pass but not at the right moments because at the next jump I landed on his car. I myself made not a single mistake in the whole 1 hour final!

In VRC Pro you must also drive perfect lines so it is a very good practice for real rc racing. After VRC practice I race with my real car. In VRC you don’t need to work on your car so you save a lot of time and can use all you free time to practice, that helps me a lot to make the gap with the ‘profis’ smaller.

During the Euros some reporters came to me and asked me about the VRC Worlds, and in the pit several racers came to me and asked ‘are you Martin Wollanka from VRC Pro?’ That was a nice experience too!

VRC Pro ace David Ronnefalk from Sweden has won his 2nd European title in 1:8 nitro buggies during the EFRA Euros in Sand Germany. After a difficult start he had to work his way to the front and from then on dominated the race controlling his lead until the finish flag dropped. David is using the Kyosho buggy powered by the Orion engine and fueled by Runnertime, the 2014 Season 2 sponsor for the VRC Pro nitro on-road events! Austrian Martin Wollanka, the 2013 VRC Pro World Champion in 1:8 nitro buggies and 1:12 electric sportscars, finished in the same lap as David with his FX powered Xray buggy.

David’s victory doesn’t come as a surprise as he is rated one of the world best racers in all off-road classes. David picked up on VRC Pro in 2012 after we introduced the short course trucks and later the nitro buggies. He has raced and won several major VRC Pro events in the past. Of course his incredible busy racing schedule makes it difficult for him to be racing VRC Pro during the season. Runner up Martin Woll... read more
