SEASON 1 2017 1:8 NITRO BUGGY SPEC round 7 Buenos Aires

Britains Javan Candy has won 7th round race of nitro buggy spec serie, this race was held at Buenos Aires track. Javan was overwhelming in every round and nobody couldnt challenge him. But even Javan didnt get clean run at final, but pace was so great that he didnt had any difficulties to take this one. Just unbeliavable drive and pace from him!
Italian Tommaso Andreuccetti was second, 23s behind winner.
Third podium battle was intence, as Spaniard Alejandro Prieto, Swedish Lennart Sahlman and Hong Kong`s Carson Yeung were in fight. Finally Prieto was strongest and got last podium place, but very tiny 0.357s margin before Sahlman. Yeung had to settle to fifth place, 0.8s behind Sahlman.


Javan Candy was strong as expected. Five events, five victories.

2017 SEASON 1 1:10 SC TRUCKS 13.5T ROUND 7 RC Exitement II

RC Exitement II was hosting 7th round race of SC 13.5 serie. In PRO class Finnish driver Ilari Lamminsivu was unbeatable, this 19 years old talent was in top spot at qualifying, beating Britains Reece Hodges with 3s margin. In semifinal Hodges lifted his pace with one 10th in average, but still Lamminsivu was 2s faster. Third grid went to Hong Kong`s Carson Yeung. Yeung was way too far with his pace to challenge those two at front.
When grid was arranged for the A-main, Hodges was missing. So, with same fast and consistent style it was well expected that this would go to Lamminsivu. And he didnt let us down, he continued what he started and drove very clean and stable run. Well deserved win for Ilari!
Carson Yeung took what he could, second place was magnificent result and 9s gap to winner wasnt bad. Russian driver Valeri Kornilov started f... read more

2017 SEASON 1 1:10 ELECTRIC TC 13.5T SPEC ROUND 6 CRF Lausanne

Technical and also demanding circuit of Lausanne was hosting 6th round of electric touring car series. At this track you had to be very precise with your lines and braking points, and also those curbs didnt give anything for free.

Spaniard Jhonny Hernandez earned the pole position from semifinals, Britain`s Reece Hodges was only 0.6s behind at second place and Austrian Christoph Löb in third position, with 5.7s gap to TQ.
When grid was arranged, it was bit unfortunent that Hernandez wasnt there and by this, all pressures moved to Hodges.
From the tone, Hodges was leading the group with very stable rhytm. First corner in 3rd lap, Hodges made hungry cutting and Xavier Deparde got the lead. Next four laps Deparde was setting the pace, but Hodges was furiosly chasing on his tale. At this point Mathias Nedrebo was in third and Dana Bailes at fo... read more

SEASON 1 2017 1:8 ELECTRIC BUGGY SPEC round 6 Montpellier

Sixth round of 1:8 electric buggy spec serie was fighted at Montpellier demanding track. At PRO level two Canadians, Andrew Bucar and Dan Phillion were in charge and were setting the pace. From the start Bucar was holding first position and everything looked convincing for him.
But end of the fifth lap, things got harder for him,as he flipped his car and Phillion got the lead.
Pace was pretty much same with these two and without mistakes, now Phillion was favourite to take this one. But it wasnt over. Phillion had leaded this group ten laps, only two laps left and in same jumps, where Bucar had done his mistake, now it was time Phillion to struggle. By his struggle he dropped to second place and Bucar got the lead. Bucars only job was to bring car safe to ”home” and so he did. Bucar crossed the line in first and Phillion in second place, 4 second... read more
