    “The final deciding A final started without too much drama however that would completely change on lap two as Jorn Neumann followed poleman Lee Martin round, with fellow title challenger Neil Cragg finding his way into 3rd quickly. The leading pair of Lee and Jorn approached the triple jump as normal however an unlucky marshall retrieving a crashed David Ronnefalk was in the wrong place at the wrong time as Lee ended up T-Boning his foot and landing upside down. Neumann slipped past, adding further injustice the marshall failed to put the car back on it’s wheels allowing Cragg past into 2nd.” Read More…

    In R/C car racing there are a lot of very interesting and unique individuals. Whether they are world champions or backwoods bashers, they ALL have a story to tell. Here at RCN, we have gone in search of those stories with our new “Word Up” segment, interviewing racers, enthusiasts, industry big wigs, and everything in between. We decided to kick off the first edition of “Word Up” by interviewing the first American driver (to our knowledge) that has dedicated themselves to traveling overseas race after race to compete in the Euro Nitro Series. To top it off, SHE is also among the fastest nitro onroad racers in America. Without further ado, we introduce Ms. Loran Whiting! Read more…

    JQ Racing and BETA factory driver, Robert Gustafsson, took a famous victory at the Over 40′s Euros held at the Fehring racetrack in Austria over the weekend. After securing the TQ position after the qualifying sessions were complete, Robert was confident heading into the mains on Sunday. The weather did its best to throw a spanner in the works with some rain that the organisers did a great job of dispersing, but with his BETA tyres Robert always had the conditions covered and would go on take take a fantastic victory and first European Title for the BETA brand.

    The third leg of the South African National Onroad Championship was held at DMCC Raceway in Durban, KZN this past weekend.

    Although it is winter in South Africa at the moment, Durban is known for its much warmer climate. With 9 Drivers just returning from the ETS Final in Slovakia, everyone knew that it was going to be a very important event as far as points are concerned. Only a few of the returning drivers attended the event, but in the end it was just as epic as if all of them were there. The track is situated next to the highway at the Southway Mall, originally a gas track with long open straights, and a flowing infield. It has been used for electric only the last two years.  Read more…

    This past weekend saw Round 4 of the popular Bittydesign Series held at Ledbury MCC in the UK. The day started with a small amount of rain but this did not deter the drivers and after round 1 the track was dry and times were increasing throughout the day. With 35 drivers in attendance on the day, they managed to run through 4 rounds of qualifying with a mix of drivers taking the top spots, Nathan Powney taking his 3rd TQ at the series so far after missing out on attending round 3 of the series. 2nd overall was Chris Leighton who is very new to the track, and after some technical issues in qualifying managed to make one flying round, and 3rd overall Round 3 TQ man, Matt Slaney.
