TONY DUGAN TAKES 2018 WORLDS TITLE RALLY-X SPEC

04.01.2019

Tony Dugan from the US has claimed victory at the 2018 VRC Worlds for 1:8 electric Rally-X Spec class at the new VRC Dirt 2 track. This must have been one of the closest contested finals evenr in VRC history. It was Ely Rojas who led most of the 10 minute final but he was challended by Dugan, Yeung and Berman who were always within striking distance, most of the final within a second. Rojas took very tight lines in the switch back hairpins using the dirt edge, and got away 34 of his 35 laps, but in lap 29 he took the hairpin too tight and rolled the car. That gave the other 3 a break of 2 seconds and despite some very fast laps he was not able to close the gap anymore with the 3 front runners. The race was now between Dugan, Yeung and Berman. Dugan increased the pace and was able to cross the finish line first to earn a well deserved VRC Worlds title.

Great race,well worth a watch (on Google Chrome on my PC).
Great commentary from Mike.
Sure is not easy driving round corners that can chuck you on your roof and can give you a 'rail ride' if you get it right.
