YRCA 2017 report


Last weekend was held 2nd year of international junior championships IYRCA in Prague. On Wednesday everyone was given the same car for the stock category which we assembled and in the afternoon we were also allowed a free practice. Used in categories: stock, modified, formula, 1/14. The official opening of the race was on Thursday, where we could witness a very interesting cultural program – acrobatic flying with RC aircraft, dance group performance, laser show etc. The race was attended by juniors from 7 countries. After the controlled practice, I finished on 1st place in Stock and on 3rd place in modified. After 6 successful qualifying rides, I got TQ in both categories. In the final races, both cars functioned as a “Swiss watch”. In the stock category I managed to keep the first place before Filip Rajdus on the 2nd place and Filip Obora on 3rd place.

In the modified category I had to fight with Harley Eldridge, who was breathing my neck in a tight race.

As I managed to keep calm I could shake her off and then she fought Matej Šulc for 2nd and 3rd place with better finish for Matej. After victories in the final races in both categories, I defended the IYRCA title from last year.
