The Western Canadian Indoor Championship Series visited the wide open prairies of Saskatchewan, this time in Moose Jaw for Round 6, hosted by Fastraxx. A little town with a big race, and as the countdown to the finals begins, the championship battles are getting close!
Team CRC WGT: 2013 WCICS WGT Champion Korgae Scales showed once again why he’s been Champion 3 years in a row, setting TQ and after an early mistake, fighting back to take the win. XRay’s Luke Pitman, in just over a year has become a great racer and took 2nd, and 3rd went to WCICS Pres, top privateer Josh Carter.
ATD Hobbies Tamiya Mini ORCA: Calgary’s Ivan Chan took TQ and win over Robbie Langley in a great battle. Robbie represented his home province well! Another Calgarian, Mike San Antonio drove a great race to finish just a few seconds back in 3rd.
Gravity RC VTA: Saskatoon’s Nick Kinar took the TQ and win, ahead of Cam Spence. Don Buck joins his son in taking home some hardware coming in 3rd!
Reedy 12th Stock: WCICS Media Director Luke Pitman took the weekend with TQ and a big win with his XRay, simply impressive in his first full season of racing! It was a lot of paint being traded in the battle for 2nd, but respectful as both drivers would wait if contact cause any troubles. In the end Calgary’s Jim Chapman took 2nd over Ivan Chan.
Auto Trim F1: Ivan Chan took his Jordan to TQ & win. Again Mike San Antonio joined on the podium, this time in 2nd. Jesse Vine had some handling challenges but came in 3rd.
Great Hobbies TC Stock: In the largest class of the weekend, Alberta’s Steve Soon and his Serpent set TQ, but was under constant pressure from Saskatchewan’s Danny Buck and his XRAY. Both drivers drove perfect races, and they ended just where they started, just a few seconds apart. Ivan Chan was third.
Awesomatix TC Mod: The most dramatic high speed main of the weekend! This time Danny Buck and his XRAY had pole, but an early mistake put him back to 5th. Korgae Scales and his Awesomatix then had the lead for the first minute, but Steve Soon, who had started second on the grid, took the lead on lap 6 with his Serpent and never looked back. Danny battled all the way back and passed Korgae with just a minute to go to take 2nd. Korgae brought his Awesomatix home 3rd.
Thanks to Fastraxx for an absolutely spectacular weekend! Next we’re traveling back across the mountains to Kamloops, British Columbia for Round 7 on Mar 6-8th. Full results & pics can be found on www.WCICS.ca
