Victorian State Championships
JConcepts products have again dominated the tracks down under, this time at the Victorian State Championships. For 2012 the titles were held at the Keilor track in Melbourne with just under 200 entries received from all around Victoria as well as from Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and Tasmania. The Keilor club had prepared a high grip track with an abrasive surface and had chosen the JConcepts Bar Codes as the control tyre (in Orange compound). With temps reaching close to 30c, this was the perfect tyre choice for the track with high grip and good wear.
JConcepts / Associated / Novak factory driver Ray Munday calls this track home and was looking to add more state titles to his tally, however he was facing stiff competition from the likes of Ashley Peeler (Kyosho), Leigh Cheeseman (JC / Associated), Jody Denner (Associated), young guns Glen Bonetti (JC / Associated) and Logan Symes (Losi), and 2011 National Off-Road Champ Josh Pain (Yokomo).
After a long weekend of racing, Ray would walk away with victories in 4wd Open and 2WD SCT, with Glen Bonetti taking a surprise win in 2wd using his JC equipped B4.1. In Mod truck, Leigh Cheeseman would finish a close second to Ash ‘king of truck’ Peeler.
The Keilor club worked very hard to promote a professional atmosphere for the event with great commentary, food and even a Red Bull tent (with Red Bull promo girls!) to keep everyone entertained.
