18 Year old Miika Laurila from Oulu in Finland has swept the 2012 VRC Worlds 1:12 at the Bangkok track beating 1:12 experts Helge Johannessen from Norway and Jörg Knippendberg from Germany. With an incredible pace of 11.409 average (!) he never gave the 2012 Series Winner Helge a chance to come even close. Miika vs. Helge

The race for second place between Helge and Jörg was immensely close, just 0.242 seconds between them at the finish line. In lap 32 Jorg had fought back to take the lead but Helge managed to squeeze out just 0.242 seconds in the remaining 9 laps. For 95% of the race there was less than 1 second between them! Helge vs. Jörg

Zak Smith from the UK and Thomas Hofstedt (Norway) finished just outside the podium one lap down on Jörg, but just 2.5 seconds between them. Zak vs. Thomas

18 Year old Miika started R/C racing when he was just 12 and was immediately successful winning several national races in 1:10 ISTC standard class. He left r/c racing for a few years to return to the track this year to race in 1:12 stock class with the V-Dezign chassis, designed and manufactured by the wellknown Fin 1:12th racer Vesa Yli.

Thank you guys! Really can't do much better I think. Helge did a run very close to me after the event was after though. Would've been a close race.

For Helge: If you run stock that is possible ;)
