Team Tekin race report

 

Tekin scores big at the Hank Perry 240

Spring time racing in Spokane at the Hank Perry 240 always proves to be an awesome race event. The RCCCS and staff have put on another great show for the 2nd stop of the Northwest Championship Tour and this year had more meaning than ever. Two people known by many in the RC community were lost recently and racers ran special decals honoring the memory of both Gary Matthews and Gracie Snider. It was a special race ran in their memory and we are so glad we had the opportunity to take part.

The E-Buggy class at this years Hank Perry was the biggest and deepest field the Northwest has ever seen with 60 entries. Tekin’s very own Jeremy Potter & Ty Campbell would start on pole and 3rd on the grid for the exciting triple 10 minute A-Mains. In A1 Potter would lead from the start and never look back, behind him Campbell would engage in a 3 way battle for 2nd all race long just coming up a bit short at the end and settling for 4th. In A2, Potter once again would jump out to the lead with Campbell quickly to 2nd and applying pressure on Potter. Right before the halfway mark Potter would suffer a mechanical issue, handing the lead to Ty. Having to bump from the B-Main, Tekin team driver Nick Buechler had a quiet A1, but in A2 charged to the front where him and Campbell battled it out for the remaining 3 minutes with Campbell getting the win and setting up an A3 showdown. Like A1, Potter jumped out to the early lead and set it in cruise control as the rest of the field fought for the remaining podium spots. Buechler once again joined the front pack quickly from his 11th starting spot. As the time clock ended Buechler would secure 2nd with Campbell in 4th. The Podium would be all Team Tekin with the TLR 3.0e of Ty Campbell in 3rd, Nick Buechler and his Hot Bodies D812e in 2nd with Jeremy Potter’s Hot Bodies D812e on the top spot. The entire podium was powered by the award winning Tekin Rx8 Gen2 esc and T8 Gen2 motor line.


Campbell, Potter, Buechler (L-R)

4WD modified was equally as competitive as E-Buggy at the 240 this year. 41 drivers took to the track chasing those A-main spots during qualifying, where only 10 would be successful and two more were up for grabs with the bump-up format. Tekin’s Ty Campbell qualified 4th overall with his Tekin RSX/Redline Gen2 powered TLR 22-4. A1 proved excited with intense battles for 1st through 6th and Ty managed to pull off a 2nd place finish behind local NW fast-guy, Chris Bridgewater. In A2, Ty suffered from a steering issue partway in, but managed to get it fixed and continue, although two laps down. A3 was battle-filled as well and Bridgewater had already locked up the win, letting the rest fight to better their overall finishing position. Ty took 3rd in A3, securing his 3rd place overall finish, putting Tekin/TLR on the podium.

JQ Products race report

 

Team JQ at the 2014 EFRA Euros Warmup



Three years after the last euros being held in Germany the same club will host the most prestigious event in Europe for 2014. Traditionally there was a warm up race, held on 16~18 May with 115 drivers from all over Europe in attendance to fight for the #1 spot! Like every year Joseph Quagraine attended the race to prepare for the Euros main event which will be held in two months time. While being forced to write this brief report and try to discover something that not everyone knows I realized that a diabolical coincidence has occured during this race, since religious matters seem to be a hot subject among the RC community. Here is what I discovered: Joseph ended up 6th overall after four practice rounds were done and finished 6th in the 1/2 A final as if this wasnt enough after the hard 45 minute final JQ's final position was 6th! Our factory team driver Rayan Medjoubi who also attended the race with his REDS powered THECar White Edition with AKA tires was ranked in the 21st place after practice and managed a spot in the 1/4 final which would see him sitting in the 29th position in the overal results. Très Bien Rayan!

Rain made the racing conditions tricky....

Leaving coincidences aside this was a very good result for a hard race in mixed conditions with Europe's best drivers! THECar White edition run flawlessly during the whole event, combined with REDS engine and AKA tires turned some fast laps! Final results of the race are:

1st David Ronnefalk Kyosho/Orion/AKA
2nd Robert Batlle Mugen/Novarossi/Procircuit
3rd Darren Bloomfield Agama/Bullitt/Beta
4th Martin Bayer Xray/LRP/AKA
5th Elliot Boots Kyosho/REDS/ProLine
6th Joseph Quagraine JQ/REDS/AKA
7th Ari Heinonnen Kyosho/Alpha/Beta
8th Reno Savoya Xray/Orion/Sweep
9th Carsten Keller Kyosho/Bullitt/AKA
10th Miguel Matias Xray/RB/AKA
11th Martin Wollanka Xray/FX/ProLine
12th Lee Martin Mugen/Beat/ProLine
