Round 1 of the Roma Shock Championship was hosted this past weekend at the T5 Track in Rome, Italy. The sun was shining, and the heat was on high. In the Modified TC class it was a battle for the win between the two Alessio’s. In the end, XRAY’s Alessio Menicucci would take home the gold, with Alessio Valentini taking second. Simone D’Ottavio wrapped up the podium taking third.
Last weekend the fourth and last round of the Swedish Cup Series took place at the track of Borås MRK. Normally a place where rain comes into play, however this year it wasn’t like that as the sun was out all weekend. The overall winner of the cup was going to be decided with a few guys having a shot at it. The race was dominated by Kyosho’s David Ronnefalk as he TQ’ed every round of qualifying, and starting on pole for the final. It was a close and fun battle with Kennie Ekenstierna towards the end of the final, with David coming out on top. This meant the overall cup went to David with 3 wins in three races (having missed one round due to a clash with another race).
Round 3 of the Slovenian Nationals took place recently in Blatni Dol. In the competitive E-Buggy class it was XRAY’s Andraž Štefe who set the pace in qualifying, taking the overall TQ. Štefe was unchallenged as he cruised to victory ahead of Andrej Abramič and Nejc Oražem.

Liverpool Radio Rallycross Car Club was the venue for the 2014 New South Wales State Titles. The competition was still fierce. There was a little rain every day, but this made for a black grooved track, super consistent surface, and a killer layout. It would be TLR’s Shane Kelly who dominated the event taking a solid win in both GP Buggy and GP Truggy classes. XRAY’s Ari Bakla would finish up second in the buggy class, followed by Kevin Lewis. In the GP Truggy class it was Chris Lander and Dragen Bjelic who followed Kelly across the line to finish out the podium. Read more…
