JQ Products wins Irish National Rd1

Bradley Baird has started off his Irish Title defence perfectly, with a win. Here is a report from Mr Baird: Round one of the Irish nationals was held in the fantastic all dirt facility of BADMCC just outside Belfast in Northern Ireland. Qualifying was four seven minute heats. In nitro qualifing I TQ’d all four rounds and locked up qualifying. In electric JQ electric driver Andrew Rennick drove hard and pulled out two fast runs in the final to heats which gave him overall TQ in electric. So JQ on pole in both classes. 

The overall after qualifying was as followed:

  1. Bradley Baird – JQ/Nvision/VPPRO
  2. Gary Baird – Kyosho/Bullett/Beta
  3. Alan Scroggie – Agama/Bullett/Beta

In the electric final Andrew Rennick had a very close race and in the end came out on top with his HPI powered JQ E Car. In the forty five minute nitro main, I got off to a clean start and for the first 20 minutes I battled with Gary Baird (Kyosho) for the lead. At the 30 minute mark I had pulled a small gap between Gary and I and maintained the lead until the end of the race. The Value kit was very easy to drive and fast on the demanding BADMCC track.

Final Results:

  1. Bradley Baird – JQ/Nvision/VPPRO
  2. Gary Baird – Kyosho/Bullett/Beta
  3. Barkley Abernathy – Agama/Bullett/Beta
