Multiple 1:10 ISTC champion Ronald Völker (Germany) has won the 2012 VRC Worlds 1:10 ISTC at the 2008 Worlds Bangkok track (long 1:10 course). This was Ronald Volker’s second consecutive victory after winning the VRC Worlds on the Eppelheim LRP Masters indoor track in December 2011.

Ronald had to drive hard to keep Nicola Marrone and Kevin Pignotti (both from Italy) of his tail. Ronald was fastest the first half of the race, but in the second half Nicola was able to reduce the 1.63 second lead of Ronald to just 0.7 seconds on the finish line. Race2theWorlds winner Kevin Pignotti was 0.73 seconds up on Nicola half way but an error in the 17th lap cost him 2nd place finishing 0.53 seconds behind Nicola on third spot.

Elliott Harper from the UK finished just outside the podium 3 seconds down on Kevin in 4th postion. Having been away fro VRC Pro for over a year Elliott was surprised about the quality of racing: “Many fast racers now in VRC Pro, lap times are very close!”
