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)
9th – Scott McCreanor
10th – Mark Johnston

Pro Stock Series Final


02 OCTOBER 2016

Last weekend the final of the Pro Stock Series took place at Waechtersbach in Germany.
Without any practice heat because of rain, the race started with wet qualification heats sunday morning and only the last two heats were completely dry.
I had the fastest laptimes and the car worked quite well with a nearly standard setup on this short and tight track; I only missed the TQ spot because of some little mistakes. So I was ranked 2nd after the qualification, didn't have to drive the semi final and started 2nd in the main. After some small setup changes to get more steering the car was quite perfect now and after two laps I took the lead in the final. Unluckily after 5 mins the clutch was starting to have problem and I feel like have no power out of the corners… I focus on the driving managing the clutch problems and my Infinity was still the fastest car on the track and i saved my 1st position over the 30min final. Thanks to Oli for his help in the pits! Now I’m looking forward to ENS round 4!
