XB8 on podium at French Cup



All the best French drivers from 2015 regional races were in attendance at Reding (East of France) for the annual French Cup which was the biggest race of the season with around 100 drivers in attendance.

Due to the rain on Friday, practice day has been cancelled and we start very quicly with qualifying.

The track was super low grip so getting the right balance between speed and consistancy was pretty challenging.

After some few changes from our basic setup, the XRAY team successed to find it and did a great show with Yannick Aigoin finishing second (only 6s from the win) and Lorenzo Crolla finishing 4th.

Final results:
1. Jerome Aigoin
2. Yannick Aigoin – XRAY XB8
3. Jerome Sartel

XB8E on podium at 2015 ACT State Titles in Australia



120 Entries were the limit and every position was filled. A wet track on the first two days meant setups were changing a lot, but the starting setup we use on the XB8E was very close even in the wet. Qualifying went great with Ari Bakla taking 3 out of 4 Roads giving him the top spot. His XB8E looked the smoothest out on track and showed in the time sheets too. Next up were the 3x 10 Minute Finals.

Final #1 saw Ari and Josh Pain break out from the pack, battling for the first 5 minutes. A mistake by Josh saw Ari pull away to a 8 second lead. With 2 minutes to go Ari started slowing and Josh was catching, looked as though his batteries were just running out of power, last lap, last corner, last jump... Ari rolled and josh passed through for the win by just .02 of a second.

Final #2 Much the same as Final #1, Ari and Josh again pulled and battled, Ari gapped when Josh made a small mistake. But again Ari had issues with a car that stopped, later finding out that a ESC Fan stopped working and an ESC Thermal ended his race. Dallas Gardiner pulling through for 2nd palce and Peter Obrien 3rd.

Final #3 Josh had taken the overall win with 2 first places, so it was all down to the final podium places. Ari dominated the last final and setting the track record for EP. Dallas Gardiner a strong second and Peter again 3rd.

Top 10
1. Josh Pain SWorks
