Griffin Hanna wins Motorama E-Buggy


Griffin Hanna

The 2015 Motorama was once again held in a 15 acre indoor complex in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. 2 different tracks, one for 1/10 and one for 1/8 scale. Each track had maxed out at 350 entries a piece! The 1/8 track had 95 racers in E Buggy and 50 in E Truggy. 3 rounds of qualifying with the 2 best runs seating you for the triple A-mains.

In Pro E Buggy Griffin Hanna was able to take the top qualifying spot. For the mains they ran a triple A main format taking your best 2 runs for overall position. In the buggy A1 race Tekin powered Griffin Hanna lead the first lap and he had a screw back out of the steering knuckle which lead him to finish last in the first run. Not going to plan. A2 was a nail biter, first lap Griff stuffed the pipe a few turns in and dropped to 4th. By the end of the first lap he was up to 2nd. The pressure was on and he needed a good finish to be top 3. Midway in the run he made a small mistake which let the leader get away. He needed a little luck on his side and he got it. With about a minute to go the leader rolled it and Griffin was able to take the lead. He would go on to take A2. In A3 Griffin put in a clean run and lead start to finish. That gave him the overall win in Pro E-Buggy title!
