Last weekend the first round of the RCCM Cup took place on the track in Hildesheim. Arriving on Thursday, there was no opportunity for practice due to rain for the 31 starters, sothat the first practice heats went on Saturday morning.
After the last qualification heat Merlin had to start from pole position in the final with his MAX powered Serpent 733.
Right from the start of the final he pulled away and ran easily for 30 minutes with a smooth working car, finishing 7 laps in front of second Thomas Einbeck.

It was the first race with the Serpent 733 for Merlin, who had never before started in a 1/10 scale class.
Also thanks to Mechanic Björn Möhring and Siegfried Lakeit for pitting, who replaced pit man Hansi Heise for this weekend.

The final standings were:

1.Merlin Depta Serpent733/MAX Power/Xceed Ital light
2.Thomas Einbeck
3.Dirk Müller

Also thanks to LMI Racing, SAVOX SERVOS, MT-Modellbauracing, BocaBearings,Robitronic and of course 2-Speed Racing.
