    Gilliland

    Round 4 of the Irish National 1/10 TC Championship was held in Craigavon, Northern Ireland. The 1/5 scale track provided some very fast and wide open racing. Windy conditions played a factor throughout qualifying, however, the gusty weather didn’t seem to bother TQ Mark Gilliland. His luck would change as the winds picked up just in time for A1, causing multiple slides and spin outs off the start. Gilliland worked his way back to the front with only minutes to spare, and would take the win. Mark continued his dominating performance by winning A2 and A3, securing the Round 4 AND championship victory! Read more…

    Andersen 40 Win

    The 2014 EC 40+ was held in the Netherlands recently. Many of Europe’s top ‘over the hill’ drivers were in attendance, all looking to take the championship crown. After six long rounds of qualifying, Traugott Schär would take the overall TQ spot heading into the semi finals. Rain made for wet and slippery semi finals, and changed up the order significantly heading into the final. The track dried just in time for the final, and it was XRAY’s Frank Andersen who would take the lead early and never look back. Andersen schooled the competition, crossing the finish line 3 laps ahead of second for the 2014 EC 40+ win! Read more…
