Austin Woodyard race report from SIC in Alabama

The 2020 Southern Indoor Championship is over. Racetime Entertainment put on another great event! Overall I was really pleased with my weekend. My Serpent cars ran great all weekend!

In Nitro Truggy, I qualified 10th in the A main. In the main, I had a screw back out on my ackerman plate which put me out the race midway.

Race report Vietnam Challenge 2020

Vietnam Challenge 2020

Q1 was up. I hit the track, and my car was feeling super dialled. Unfortunately got tangled up with a car over the rhythm section coming onto the straight which cost me some 8 seconds. Drove hard and worked back to within 2 seconds of Hara but ran out of time. Finished 2nd for this round.

Q2 & Q3 were similarly uneventful runs for me. Car feeling great both runs, just riddled with driving mistakes and plenty of hook ups with crashed cars and back markers. I would settle for 2nd in both of these rounds, making the TQ out of reach.

Q4 was ran on Sunday morning. I managed to finally have a clean run, taking the win by 9 seconds and setting the fastest overall time of the weekend. All my equipment was on point heading to the finals.

Finals

Finals time was quickly approaching. About 45 minutes prior to our practice session for the A main, we had some rain. This really affected the track because of the surface adhesive they had used, which was glue. We took a gamble for the final, looking at the conditions of the track and the coming weather, we mounted around 8 sets of tires including some super soft long wear Zipps.

Start of the final kicks off. Hara, I and Wataru getting a clean start. Hara making a small mistake over a jump allowed me to take the lead. I led for a few minutes, before subsequently making an identical mistake on the same section of track, giving Hara an advantage coming onto the front straight. I was positioning myself to take the inside line coming into the first corner of the straight, when suddenly it started to rain, sending both our cars running off the track into the fence!

Luckily, I managed to recover quickly with Hara right behind me. The next few laps were chaos as we all adjusted to the new conditions. Fortunately, my car was working well in the wet conditions, allowing me to make a clean break and build over a 25 second lead. They called the race 20 minutes in as the rain was only worsening. All the drivers voted to have the main result stand in a majority vote, resulting in me taking the win!

Alessio Mazzeo rejoins Team Serpent

Serpent welcomes back multiple Italian champion and IFMAR Worlds finalist Alessio Mazzeo to their Factory Team.

Allesio had to say this:

The heart is not controlled ..
My past but now also my present and my future.
Against all temptations, forecasts, I made this choice, the choice of happiness. It could not be otherwise when he is surrounded by people who respect the person before the driver. For me, the Serpent world has always been this. Friendship and respect.
I am happy and I can't wait to get excited again driving a Serpent. Thank you for asking me, thank you for reopening the doors of the house as if it were nothing.

I dreamed of writing it from the first day I went away .. I'm back!

Serpent X20 Medius is shipping now!

X20 is the result of utilizing past years design of the Eryx and 4x 1/10 touring car.

The chassis is based on the popular Medius mid motor design, using a light weight and strong 1 piece motor mount concept, without any interference between the front and rear chassis flex while still allowing center flex adjustability. The advantage for this style of design is to allow maximum flex capabilities without impacting the drivetrain, meaning smoother power delivery, more consistency and less chance of stripping spurs.
