“Tony Knauth driving an RB / Hyper 9 combo takes the win in both Pro Buggy and Hyper Truck classes making it 2 in a row!!! The Hyper Truck control class, growing day by day with new drivers joining in on what is a very competitive, exciting and very affordable class of RC motorsport, the class in a very short period of time has overtaken the Nitro Buggy’s in driver numbers, and getting close in lap times, with a new record set last night of 32.919 secs, the trucks now within 2 seconds of the Nitro’s lap times, it’s pretty easy to see why Short Course Truck racing is spreading like wildfire across the RC world!!! On to the Racing !!!! Round 1 Pro Buggy – See’s Phil Ciccone – MBX6 – Nova Rossi back on the track with a vengeance, taking the Pro Buggy win after a tough battle with Tim Nicol – MBX6 -RB and Tony Knauth – Hyper 9 – RB, Ciccone making a break for it in the late stages to finish 12.71 ahead of Nicol, Knauth a further 3 seconds back in third, Tom Jones – Xray – RB and Steven Peckham – RC8E fourth and fifth.
