ANGER RULES SC TRUCKS SPEC CLASS AT FUENCARRAL

01.12.2017

Gaetan Anger from France has added a third title to his 2017 VRC Worlds campaign by winning 1:10 short course spec class at the new track Buggyland Fuencarral, Spain.

He has already won RallyX Spec in Pro class, and 1:10 nitro sedans spec in Sport class. This victory came after another hard fought battle, this time with Joan Espasa from Spain, and Tom Rinderknecht from the US, these 3 making up the Pro class podium. The first 6 cars finished within 9 seconds after 10 minutes of intense racing. Espasa had a sloppy start loosing 2 valuable seconds in the 2 opening laps, and managed to catch up the leader in lap 8. The battle stayed close till lap 13 where a small mistake lost him a second on the leader. Rinderwalt had to fight hard for 3rd place with Jordan Lot from France, finishing just 2/10 ahead fo the Frenchman.

Anger again displayed great form, with all his laps in the 42 seconds, like clockwork! A well deserved Worlds title, congrats!
