RC Maniacs Argos Championship Rd2 report

361

The second round of the RC Maniacs Championship was held at the beautiful Argos track in Greece. For this round, three classes was held in TC modified, TC Stock (blinky with 13.5t motors and ratio limit), F1 (blinky with 17.5t motors and ratio limit). To increase fun and also playing time, organizers have decided to run a Reedy style event with 8 runs where 6 counted. They kept the idea from Reedy format of changing starting position on every driver for very run to create different “finals” and help us improve on overtaking and also defending our position. Weather was hot with 38° Celsius and the track was 55°-60° Celsius.
