2017 SEASON 1 1:8 SPORTCARS ROUND 8 Heemstede 1

PRO level

Heemstede was hosting last race of 1:8 sportcars series in 2017 SEASON 1.
American super talent, double World Champion Joshua Berman dominated PRO level race. He was fastest in every round and won this race with style and showed how champ drives.
Irish driver Austin Elliot was the closest behind Berman in qualifying and practice. But It was a bit dull because Elliot wasnt at the grid when main final started.
Another American, Kevin Bacon was third in semifinal and started from third grid. Kevin had the pace, but he was totally out of rhytm. He made several mistakes during his run and these gave him huge 30 seconds extra. Portugese Nuno Lourenco got third place and was one lap behind Bacon when race ended. Nuno started from fourth grid, so he secured his position when Elliot retreated from the race.

SEASON 1 2017 1:8 NITRO BUGGY round 7 Buenos Aires

There is one more to go after this 7th round race of Nitro Buggy serie. Buenos Aires track was hosting this round and totally 92 drivers participated to this event.

PRO level race was total domination by Swedish driver Jonas Larsson. Even multiple VRC PRO Worldchampion Martin Wollanka didnt had any weapons to challenge this Swedish youngster at qualifying or in the semi, so furios Larsson`s pace was. At qualifying, Larsson left Austrian Wollanka over 8 and in semifinal, almost 13 seconds away. When grid was ranged for A-main, Wollanka was missing and this was looking very easy win for Larsson. Jonas continued his clean furios driving and was on his own. He crossed the line one lap ahead of second place driver, Marshall Kirkholm. Marshall had some mistakes in early stage of the main, was it lack of rhytm or what but h... read more

The first 3 rounds of this event was a see saw battle between the two Americans Robert Smith and Jimmy Flack. Flack sat on pole for the A Main final and the question was would one of these two men take the chequered flag or would a dark horse rise and take the win?

His biggest hope for a win was a mistake from Flack but unfortunately for Smith that never happened. His consistent lap times cemented his second place and was the only other driver to finish on the lead lap.



The battle for the final podium was a hard fought battle between Graham Raistrick from the United Kingdom an... read more
