PLANNING 2018 VRC WORLDS SEASON

19.09.2018   17 comments   Category: Site news

I am currently planning the 2018 VRC Worlds Season which will start at the end of Season 2, around middle of November.

As a trial we have integrated half of the 2018 VRC Worlds events in Season 1, which was not appreciated a lot by the VRC racing communitiy, but as they were planned and raced these VRC Worlds results stand and the winners are the 2018 VRC World Champions in these classes.

We are now considering to run a full 2018 VRC Worlds program for all classes to have a full schedule as before, which would mean also running the classes already ran in Season 1, but these events would not have Worlds status, we cannot have 2 World Champions in the same class in the same year, of course...

These events could be named '2018 VRC Worlds Revenge' or something like this, but would be kind of stand alone events without a title.
The alternative would be to skip this idea and just to run the 2018 VRC Worlds for the classes which haven't been run in Season 1, see the list below:

11 Year old Maarten Wouters, son of long time VRC racer Joost Wouters, has won the 2018 Tamiya Euro Cup in Germany in 1:10 ISTC Standard class. Maarten started r/c racing at the age of 4, and has spent numerous hours on VRC to hone his skills and strengthen his nerves, just like Ronald Völker did in his early years in r/c.

A remarkable achievement for the 11 year old, stepping in the footsteps of Ronald Völker, and Marc and Tony Reinhard who went on to become Euro and World Champions in 1:10 electric touring car racing.

We congratulate the Wouters family with this fantastic achievement, keep us posted on Joost's r/c racing carreer.

CLOSEST 3-WAY FINISH EVER IN VRC HISTORY: THE VIDEO

In Round 2 of the 2018 Season 2 series for nitro buggies at Psycho Nitro Blast 2012 we saw the closest 3-way finish ever recorded in VRC history, with Team Associated team driver Tom Rinderknecht (US) coming out on top just 0.031 seconds ahead of Marshal Kirkholm (US), and 0.071 seconds ahead of Robert Hillman from Sweden. Hillman led most of the race but was passed in the final stretch from the Works wall to the finish line.

This historic race deserves a great video. As always, the commentary of LiveRC announcer Mike Garrison adds another level of excitement to this race. MUST SEE VIDEO !!!

Makr sure to Like and Share the video with your r/c racing friends!
