2017 SEASON 1 1:10 ELECTRIC TC 13.5T SPEC ROUND 5 CARPET JPH


Fifth round race of 1:10 electric tc spec 13.5 serie was raced at Carpet JPH circuit.
At PRO level we saw very intence and tight semifinal round as the first five drivers were inside one second. Austrian talent Christian Löb was fastest and took pole for the final. Dana Bailes got second grid, with 0.6s margin to Löb. Nedrebo and Saputra were third and fourth, 0.728 and 0.844 seconds behind pole winner. Britains Ben Gayson filled this pack and was fifth fastest, 0.862s behind Löb.
By these results we could expect anybody from this group to take this one, and also behind this group was five talents more. Carson Yeung at sixth grid wasnt easy opponent either, but he needed to find two 10th`s more pace, if he wanted to challenge those guys at front.

SEASON 1 2017 RALLY X SPEC ROUND 5 Mach Rally X

Fifth round of Rally X spec serie was held at Mach Rally X track. American Ely Rojas was on fire from the start of this event. At qualifying his average was 24.866 and compared to others, Ely was on his own pace. Carson Yeung was second, over 8 second behind Rojas and Robert Hillman third, 6 seconds from Yeung.
Going for semifinal round, things were tighter. Yeung had raised his pace and was standing at second place, only 2.2 seconds behind Rojas. Rojas had average 25.1 and Yeung 25.2.
American Marshall Kirkholm earned third and Swede Robert Hillman fourth grid. Kirkholm had 12 and Hillman 14 seconds to TQ winner Rojas.
Things were looking promising for the main final, and we could only hope that Yeung at second grid had founded something for the final round. Yeung had the pace to challenge Rojas.

VRC CHAMPIONS BERMAN AND YELLE BATTLE AT MESSINA AS AMERICANS SWEEP PODIUM


PRO LEVEL

“Juggernaut” Joshua Berman of the USA earned another victory in the 1:8 Nitro Sportscar Event at Messina. Berman has been an unstoppable force (aka Juggernaut) in both the 1:8 Nitro Sportscar Modified and Spec classes as of late. The Juggernaut’s recent successes includes victories in the final three races of 2016 Season 3 for both 1:8 Nitro Sportscar and Spec series; victories in the last four races of the current series in both 1:8 Nitro Sportscar and Spec; a second-place finish in the 2016 1:8 Sportscar World Championships and is the reigning 2016 1:8 Sportscar Spec VRC Pro World Champion.

However, the Juggernaut was pushed to the limit at the recent 1:8 Sportscar event at Messina as VRC welcomed back VRC World Champion, Rick Yelle (USA). Yelle, who has won multiple VRC World Championships, including the 2014 1:8 Sportscar Spec class, returned to VRC after nearly two-year hiatus. Yelle ... read more

2017 SEASON 1 1:10 ELECTRIC TC 13.5T SPEC ROUND 4 CARPET 3

Carpet 3 circuit was hosting 4th round of 1:10 electric touring spec serie. French Xavier Deparde was holding serie lead after three rounds with full points and we just wanted to see, was there anybody, who could challenge this 36 years old onroad talent. Ok, at this event there was lot talents to do so, but with Xavier you have to be very precise, fast and consistent.

First two rounds of this event, qualifying and semifinal, went to Deparde, but we were glad that we had got some challenger who was driving very similar pace as Deparde.
Double Worldchampion Andrea Giordano was furios, and was half second behind Deparde at qualifying and gained his pace for the semi, losing only 0.026s to Deparde.
Norwegian Mathias Nedrebo was third fastest in semifinal, 4.1 behind Deparde.
