REBELS Race Rd1 report

225

The first round of the REBELS Race was held in Prague-Třebešín, Czech republic. A very nice hall welcomed 66 drivers in six on-road categories. Most represented here were ET 1:10 Open (30 racers) and ET 1:10 Stock (13 racers). Nine drivers in the Pancar 1:12 racing category were also surprised by the EFRA rules in ZeroBoost mode with 6,5 t motor. New in this winter season were the new HUDY Carpet 2018 tires for the ET category, which proved to be a better grip as well as greater lifetime. The undisputed plus is their consistent behavior – the minimum differences between the times achieved.

Formula

This category was first followed with the prescribed regulators and HW Juststock 21.5T motors. This newly introduced system should break the noticeable differences in performance of the models and move racing itself into the position of greater driving skills.

Pan Car 1:12

Drivers had to admit that these small and lightweight models with 3.5T were faster than a rocket and 99.9% of the drivers were almost unmanageable to make a 8 min run. With the 6.5T engines we can not say that these models are slow , and together with the 8-minute drive time, the adrenaline flood is really big. The fastest was this time Víťa Hola before Marcel Dostal. The third place was occupied by the RC modeling legend Jan Kanina.
