2017 SEASON 2 1:10 NITRO SEDANS SPEC ROUND 3 Atsugi 2

PRO level

Atsugi 2 was hosting third round race of 1:10 nitro sedan spec serie. In gualifying Graham Raistrick was setting the pace to others. Hitting that great result, with average 13.6, he was only one who managed to get on 23rd lap. Second place was driven by Alejandro Prieto, but he was way back from ”Racetricks” pace, over 10 seconds with average 14.0. Portuguese Nuno Lourenco was third, 1.2 second behind Prieto. Manuel Weber was fourth and Izidor Tratnik fifth.
Serie leader Massimiliano Tanturri was sixth fastest, and he needed to find something to his pace, if he wanted to hold his lead at overall points.

As the horn shouted for the main, three drivers were separated from the rest of the pack. Raistrick, Lourenco and Tanturri were those three, who had very similar start. Even Raistrick had won the quali... read more

SNEAK PREVIEW OF FUTURE PROJECTS

GT3 CLASS
We are currenly working on a 1:8 scale nitro GT3 class based on the 1:8 nitro on-road chassis. The GT3 car uses front and rear differentials and rubber tires to create a different driving experience at about 90% of the performance level of the 1:8 nitro sportscar class. This new class should be easy and fun to drive and therefore will have very limited setup options. We expect to see some very exciting racing in this new class. Release is planned for the 2017 VRC Worlds.

BUMP-UP FINALS
We are working an an alternative race format with bump-up semi finals. In short, after qualifying the top 1...4 will proceed directly to the main final, others will be split up in 2..6 semi finals from which the winners or first 2 will proceed to the main final. We are designing the new format in such a way that we are flexible in the number of direct main finalists and number of semi finals. We expect that this new 'bump-up' format will inject new enthusiasm into our on... read more

2017 SEASON 2 1:10 SC TRUCKS 13.5 ROUND 4 Neo-10

PRO level

Qualifying round was totally American Tom Rinderknecht`s. He took the TQ place by 16 seconds margin ahead of Italian Andrea Giordano. Also Giordano had stable place in second, as Carson Yeung who was third fastest, was 4 seconds away of his pace. Prieto from Spain, was standing at fourth place, 1.5 seconds behind Yeung.

Rinderknecht continued his great pace also at the race, but wasnt so fast as in qualifying. Compared to qualifying average, his pace dropped over two 10th`s at the race and it wasnt so overwhelming. Those low 31 second laps were enough and he won the race with 3.4 margin before French Gaetan Anger. Great job from Tom!
Anger in second place, had nice race and had done his homework with this track. He was pushing really good laptimes, average was 31.850 and this was enough good to get second,... read more

2017 SEASON 2 RALLYX SPEC ROUND 3 X2

PRO level

Third round race was held at X2 track. American Ely Rojas setted the pace to others in qualifying. His average 23.4 was over four 10th`s faster than Yeung`s pace, who was second fastest at qualifying. Huhtala was standing at third spot, over four 10th`s away from TQ pace. Izidor Tratnik was fourth and Arturas Svoba fifth fastest.

In the final, we saw a great fight between the American Ely Rojas and Finnish JP Huhtala. Rojas and Huhtala took the fastest start, Yeung started from the second grid, but he was having difficulties with the rhythm. His first lap was bad, almost a 27s round and this drop his position. Rojas was not at his own level in his run, his lap times already told that this was Huhtala's chance. And the race was really tight between these two, until the last laps. The Rojas drove the mighty last laps and ... read more
