Event Name: Ko Propo Off Road Championships

Event Date(s): September 25, 2010 to November 26, 2010

The track at the first Ko Propo Off Road Championships at West Coast Raceway is about 60' X 120'. Its 100% clay surface ranged from a bit rough to bumpy. The race was well attended with about 125 entries. The racers were greeted with a full plate: On the menu were sixteen qualifying heats and twenty-nine Mains (triple A Mains).

Steven Hartson sat down to eat a three-class meal: 1:8 scale Electric Buggy with his RC8Be, 1:10 scale Modified 2WD Buggy with his B4.1, and 1:10 scale Modified 4WD Buggy with his B44. All three cars used Reedy batteries and LRP brushless motors and speedos.

Steven started out qualifying Saturday with a couple of rough runs in 2WD and 4WD, but got back on his game and out-qualified the field in all three classes. The track just kept getting faster as the day progressed through qualifying. Round 3 was the fastest round of qualifying.

Steven showed up Sunday ready to dig in and ended up sweeping all three classes in the first two A Mains of each class. Being on top in the first two legs of each class, Steven was able to sit out Main 3 in all three classes.
