This past weekend we attended the Florida state series “The Force Series” round one at Tripple Nickel Raceway
This weekend there was in Genk the last race for the Belgian championship.
There were still five title candidates under which two failed and Robin Dhont (Capricorn), Yves Zoma (new Mugen R) and Gunther Van Staey (Serpent) remained.
After some calculation with brackish results Robin could win and Gunther had to finish with the four first. With Yves, it was closer and had to end just behind him.
On Saturday it was a difficult training because there was a lot of dust on the circuit. The five-minute exit was not a problem at the time, as no fast lap times were made.
At the end of the day we could...
This past Saturday was the Serpent Challenge at WOCRC in Nee Florance, PA.
I have never been to the track but it was great, definitely a must go to track! The layout was tight and techincal which made for some great racing and you had to be in your toes to turn some fast laps! The hospitality of the Boring Family was great!!
Round 8 of the Chilean National IC Track Championship was hosted by the Aeromodelos de Chile club in Santiago de Chile.
In the 1/8th class Francisco Lara (Serpent/Picco) from Spain, after been out of the racing scene for eleven months, took the overall TQ, scoring a new track record of 22.151s in the process.

Later however Francisco ran into trouble as his car was loosing performance, allowing Alvaro,...

Third place at the ENS in Aigen!
We arrived Wednesday evening in wonderful Austria in Aigen-Schlägl. When we got up on Thurday we had a day of beautiful weather and a well prepared track to race oon. Arriving with the setup from Ettlingen in practice I stayed within the Top5-Top8 and tried different things on my 988 Viper such as green springs in the front and several Blitz body positions.
The last ENS in Aigen is in the books. Again bad luck for me in the final. Practise on Thursday started well and from the beginning it was very close on the top. The traction was super low at the beginning but became better and better. The forecast sayed rain for the whole Friday but we were able to finish the free practise until it rained. I was top seed for the qualification and could win also the first two rounds. In the third round I did a small mistake and touched the curb to much and rolled over. The fourth round was super close and I finished second 0,050 seconds behind Dankel. So in the...
