US National champion Rob Gillespie has added another victory to his laurels, edging out Nicolas Loriot (FR) and Billy Caley (US) after a hard fought 8 minute A-Main final at the 2013 Shout-out layout of RC Excitement. All 3 front runners lead the A-Main for several laps, the race was decided in the last 3 laps! In the end less than 2 seconds were between the 3 podium finishers.
7 Seconds trailing the leading trio Barnebas Toth (HU), Kirby Backemeyer (US) and Antoine Rosseti (FR) had a race of their own, with Toth securing 4th in the last lap, and Rosseti passing Backemeyer to claim a top-5 finish. Martin Wollanka who leads the Series and TQ-ed wasn’t able to start this race due to ‘real life’ r/c racing commitments. With 3 drop results in the 8 race series he can afford to skip 1 or 2…

Todd’s departure means that, after 14 years of non-stop development, physics development is now ‘completed’. In the world of simulation there is of course always room for more improvement, but those improvements would have only been marginal given the extremely high realism attained. Especially after the last physics update of May 2014, the physics and everything... read more
