2018 SANWA GP

STEEL CITY SPEDWAY 21/22-07-2018

United States on road scene shown some awakening signs thanks to r/c company efforts and new locations as SCS in SoCal… For this GP almost 100 entries in different classes and a lot of fun for all drivers even in the hot weather of the weekend! Our USA Team attend the race with confidence and gets a double TQ spot: in OPEN class was Christian Lopez that place his IF18 in front of the field and in SPORTSMAN class same happened to Donald Miyamoto. Donald preferred to focus his race on 1/8 Masterclass where he finished 8th while Christian, when is leading the race, occurred in a big accident exiting his 2nd fuel stop collecting a shock absorber under his bumper and crashing straight into the barrier… Bad luck but pace showed allowed positive feelings for the future. Well done guys!!!

2018 GERMAN 1/8 NATS

2018 GERMAN 1/8 NATS

 

The first round of the central region qualifiers for the German 1:8 Nationals took place this weekend at Wiesbadener Minicar Club e.V. In qualifying heats Oliver Mack would claim the TQ in impressive style. First setting a new track record in Q2 he then managed to break it again in Q4. Impressive Oli! With forecast rain causing the final to be reduced to 20-minutes, Oli was pulling away from the field but at 12-minutes stopped due to a strange engine failure. Dennis Weihert, who qualified 5th, was able to take over the lead with a flawless drive giving him and his IF18 the win. Also driving an IF18, Peter Poldvere joined Dennis on the podium taking 3rd place.

2017 AUSTRALIAN IC ONROAD NATIONALS

2017 AUSTRALIAN IC ONROAD NATIONALS

NOV 23-25 SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES

Sydney played host to the 2017 Australian IC Onroad National Championships with Infinity driver Luke Duthie making the trip from New Zealand to compete for 1:8 honours. Hosted by the Penrith District Nitro Racing Inc track, Luke quickly got himself and his car up to speed with the circuit, ending practice second fastest behind defending champion Jeff Hamon.

While qualifying wouldn’t start well, Q1 resulting in no result, Luke quickly put this DNS behind him by taking the TQ in the second of the six rounds. Posting second fastest times in Q3, 4 & 5, he capped off qualifying with another TQ run. Securing second on the grid for the 45-minute final, a strong race looked on the cards as he moved to the front of the pack after 5-minutes of racing. Able to hold that led for the first half of the race, unfortunately an engine issue would put an end to his chances of victory. Costing him 4 laps, he was able to get the car going again to recover 4th place running out time to make it onto the podium. A disappointing end result given the pace shown by Luke and his car, which in his own words was ’great and very enjoyable to drive’.

Thanks to Luke for his efforts and for representing Infinity strongly at the Australian Nationals.

New Zealand Nationals

New Zealand Nationals

18-19 February, 2017 - Cristchurch

The New Zealand Nationals for 2017 were once again held at Ruapuna raceway in Christchurch.
The meeting was rain affected and so there was only time for two qualifiers.
I managed to qualify in first position setting a new qualifying track record.
Jayden Duthie, also driving Infinity qualified in 4th.
 
In the final the car was perfect and I held the lead from start to finish. I opted to change tires halfway which proved to be a great strategy.
Jayden Duthie was running in third for most of the race but unfortunately ran into problems meaning an early retirement.
I’m really happy to deserve this title… Flag to flag victory always have a special “taste”; thanks to Infinity and all the people that helped me.
 
The full results are as follows:
1st – Luke Duthie (Infinity)
2nd – Scott Robinson
3rd – Daniel Burrows
4th – Trevor Winter
5th – Andrew Kirk
6th – Pj Jones
7th – Bev Winter
8th – Jayden Duthie (Infinity)
