Event report for: 2016 SEASON 1 1:8 ELECTRIC BUGGY ROUND 1



Report by Larry Blair (VRC race reporter)

Round 1 of the 2016 1/8 E-Buggy season kicked off at Buenos Aires in what looks to be one of the most competitive classes to date. All the racers in the pro A main showed tremendous skill and patience and driving at a very competitive race pace. The top 4 drivers were only separated by 10.64 seconds at the end of the race and 5th place through 9th were separated by around 12 seconds. 1st through 4th finished with 17 laps and 5th through 9th finished with 16 laps. Needless to say the Pro A main was close and intense!

Dan Phillion stole the show in the end with consistent lines and excellent throttle control to hit each apex close and score the first victory of the season. Lap after lap Dan was clicking off 41 second laps with few mistakes and trying to hold off stiff competition from Johannes Lamprecht and Kuba Luczak. Dan Marson held steady all race and ended up with a solid 3rd place podium finish only 8 seconds off of the lead. Kuba Luczak would post a strong 4th place finish and Johannes Lamprecht would finish an impressive 2nd place on the podium falling only 3 seconds shy of first place.

With so much talent in this seasons field anybody could win the points and make a name for themselves only time will tell who will come out on top. One thing is very clear though, you are going to have to get passed Dan Phillion if you want that season title! Great job guys and I cant wait to see what happens next!
