Sunday, January 24th: 4 Rounds of Invitational 4wd Buggy

The Invitational class would again be limited to the 30 best qualified drivers from around the World. Using numbers 1-30, the heats were then set-up to make sure each number would have at least 2 front row and 2 back row starts to make racing as fair as possible for everyone. Then at the Drivers Meeting, the Invitational Drivers would draw their number to see what their schedule would be. Each driver would compete in 6 heads up 5-Minute races in 2wd and then in 4wd. The best 5 finishes for 2wd and for 4wd would count toward the drivers overall score. Each driver would be allowed 1 throw-out per class that would not be used in any way. In the case of a tie with 2 or more drivers finishing with the same points, the number of 1st place finishes would be used first. Then it would go to 2nd place finishes and on down. If still a tie, then the drivers fastest 2wd and 4wd time that was used would be added together to decide the Champion.

After all 6 rounds of Invitational 2wd Buggy were raced, it was Team Orion's Dustin Evans leading the way with 7 points. Team Orion's Dakotah Phend was just 1 point behind with 8 points. Team Orion's Ryan Maifield, Ryan Cavalieri, & Jared Tebo all were just 3 points out of the lead and in the hunt with 10 points.

The Championship would come down to the 6th and final round of 4wd Buggy between Team Orion's Phend & Maifield, along with Team Associated's Spencer Rivkin. Phend would be up first in the 2nd Invitational Heat. If Phend would Win this heat, he would secure the overall Championship. If he would finish 2nd, it would then allow Maifield & Rivkin the chance for the overall Championship. With all the pressure, Dakotah would go onto drive a completely flawless race to take the heat Win and secure his 1st Reedy Race Invitational Championship! Maifield would then go onto dominate heat #3 to take the Win and secure the 2nd position on the podium!

Date added: 26/01/2016 Mobers Wins Inaugural Reedy 1/12 Race of Champions

The inaugural Reedy 1/12 Race of Champions took place in Milton Keynes, UK last weekend. The event was hosted by the British Radio Car Association and was the centrepiece attraction for members of the general public at one of the largest shopping centres in the UK. In addition to the Reedy Race, a Model Motorsport Exhibition was hosted and UK-based RC manufacturers and retailers were present to display, demonstrate and sell their products. The BRCA also set up a small track with GT12 cars to enable the public to sample RC for the first time.

A standard format Reedy Invitational modified class featuring more than 20 of the world’s top 1/12 drivers was complimented by an open entry stock class using 10.5 motors and blinky speed controllers. The open class of 70 drivers was split into two groups based on practice times, and each group then had its own Reedy format event for the remainder of the weekend.

Each driver had 10 races with random heat and grid allocations each time, with each competitors 7 best finishes counting towards the overall placings.

In the LMP1 invitational modified category, Japanese driver Toto Ebukuro was the class of the field in the early stages, driving his Reedy powered Yokomo to multiple race victories. Reigning European Champion Alex Hagberg had a sedate start to the weekend, but steadily gathered pace as he adjusted to the technical track layout and style of driving required for 1/12 scale racing. New CRC recruit Markus Mobers was also fast throughout the weekend with is Orion powered chassis, while British Champion Olly Jefferies was a regular front runner too driving for Xray and LRP.

As the rounds progressed, Ebukuro was racking up victories and it seemed as if the title would be heading to Japan. However, in the penultimate round Markus Mobers pulled out an electrifying drive to win his heat and set the fastest race time of the weekend. This meant that a further win in the very last race of the weekend would be enough to give Markus the overall win on countback. Markus did not disappoint, and a solid drive in the 10th and final round gave him the 7th win he needed to deny the Japanese youngster a major title on European soil. The Xray duo of Hagberg and Jefferies finished 3rd and 4th respectively, with Britain’s Mark Stiles an impressive 5th following a solid set of drives with his Reedy powered Yokomo.

The LMP2 Open class was won by Zen-Racing youngster Ollie Payne. He was locked in battle with Yokomo designer Naoya Kitagawa and came good when it mattered to beat the Japanese ace on the track and take his maiden international race victory. Tim Wood finished 3rd driving a Reedy powered Serpent.

The LMP3 Open category saw a clean sweep for Daniel Bancroft; he won all 10 of his races in a dominant performance to take victory ahead of fellow Brit John Zottl and German Mathias Herntrich.

The event was a huge success and drivers are already asking whether there will be a repeat next year. Watch this space!

Date added: 14/01/2016 Team Orion's Jorn Neumann Wins 4wd Modified Buggy @ 2016 DHI Cup!

The 2016 DHI Cup was held this past weekend in Odense, Denmark. This unique race again ran both Off-Road and On-Road during the same weekend on two separate tracks. Team Orion's Jorn Neumann would be in attendance to try and keep his 4wd Modified Buggy unbeaten streak alive!

Friday consisted of 4 Rounds of practice for each class. The last Round of practice would take each drivers 3 best consecutive laps out of the 5-minute run to seed qualifying. After 2wd practice Jorn was seeded 9th and after 4wd practice Jorn was seeded 6th.

During the evening qualifications, Jorn took a 4th in Round #1 and a 3rd in Round #2 for 2wd Modified Buggy. The top of the field was all very close with only a few tenths deciding the top positions.

That next morning would see 2 more Rounds of 2wd Modified Buggy qualifying. Jorn would finish 2nd in Round #3 and 7th in Round #4 to have him start 4th on the grid for the Triple A-Main Events.

Next up would be 4wd Modified Buggy qualifying. Jorn would finish 4th in Round #1, 3rd in Round #2, 2nd in Round #3, and 2nd in Round #4. This would also have him starting from 4th on the grid for the Triple A-Main Events.

Sunday morning would see the 2wd Modified Buggy A-Main Events up first. In A-Main #1, Jorn had a good clean race and finished 2nd behind Michal Orlowski. In A-Main #2, unfortunately Jorn had some issues with traffic that caused him to fall back in the field. Jorn pushed hard and worked his way back up to an impressive 3rd place finish. A-Main #3, yet again saw some bad luck for Jorn. He would use his finishes from A-Main #1 & A-Main #2 to finish a respectable 3rd overall.

Last up would be the 4wd Modified Buggy A-Main Events. In A-Main #1, Jorn had some great battles with the lead pack and was able to finish 2nd behind current 4wd World Champion Coelho. In A-Main #2, Jorn changed the diff set-up on his car and it proved to be a great decision as his car had a lot more traction and he was able to work his way up to the lead and never look back to take the Win! The Championship would then be decided in A-Main #3 between 3 drivers! Jorn put in a great drive to finish 2nd, which was enough to take the overall 4wd Modified Championship for the weekend and continue his unbeaten streak!

The 2015 Kyosho Masters USA was once again held at RC Tracks of Las Vegas, located only a few blocks of the World Famous Las Vegas Strip! Team Orion's Young Gun Riccardo Berton made the long trip over from Italy to attend this great event. Other big names in attendance included last years Nitro Buggy Champion Jared Tebo, Current Nitro Buggy European Champion Elliott Boots, & 2010 Nitro Buggy World Champion Cody King.

Friday, November 6th: Controlled Practice
Saturday, November 7th: 5 Rounds of Qualifying (Best 3 out of 5)
Sunday, November 8th: Lower Main Bump-Ups & Triple A-Main Events

Team Orion Factory Driver Riccardo Berton was on-fire during qualifying where he would go onto TQ 3 out of 5 rounds of qualifying to take the impressive overall TQ honors! Berton chose Team Orion's CRF 7-Port Tuned Engine to power his Kyosho MP9 TKI3! Triple 20-Minute A-Mains would then be ran to decide the Champion.

A-Main #1 - Riccardo Berton took full advantage of his TQ starting position by getting off to a clean start and setting a fast pace. Riccardo went onto dominate A-Main #1 and would never look back to lead every lap and take the Win by 8-seconds! Jared Tebo would be the only other driver to make it by for the extra lap and would finish 2nd. Elliott Boots charged back after a rough start to finish 3rd.

A-Main #2 - Berton again got off to a great start and began to put down clean and consistent laps. Tebo would charge hard and eventually catch Berton where the 2 drivers would have a epic battle trading back and forth the lead during the middle part of the race. As the race came to an end with the checkered flag waiving, it was Berton holding strong to take the Win again by a 8-second margin to take the prestigious 2015 Kyosho Masters USA Nitro Buggy Title!
