Last weekend hosted the EFRA 1/10 200mm Touring Car European Championships in Valencia. 95 of Europe’s best drivers attended this year’s event, but none of which would prove to be a match for Robert Pietsch. Pietsch, driving the new MTX-6, captured the TQ position in qualifying, and carried on to win the 45-minute final nearly one lap ahead of Eduardo Fernandez-Escandon in second. Read more…
At the recent German 4WD Offroad Nationals held last weekend, Schumacher driver Micha Widmaier has become German Junior Champion in the 4WD 1/10th Offroad class!

The Jaben Fun Race was held this past weekend at the Jati Bening Track in East Jakarta. A tight and twisty track kept drivers on their toes, fighting to stay smooth and go fast. After a long and brutal 45-minute A-Final, John Agus captured the win with his Kyosho MP9. Chopin Yusuf finished second with XRAY’s Jason Nugroho finishing up third after a hard fought battle from the back of the pack.
Last weekend hosted the Limassol Night Race in Cyprus. Qualifying kicked off at sunset, and it was immediately apparent that XRAY’s Nicholas Zachariades was going to be a contender. Nicholas upheld his reputation and speed into the night, as he piloted his XB8 to the overall victory ahead of Marios Christodoulou and Andreas Thrasyvoulou.
