The Republic of San Marino held the RC Bike Worlds Warm Up in Riccione, Italy, during the weekend of May 25-27. The six-man Reedy/Team Thunder Tiger RC bike team was on hand to get highly coveted testing and practice time on the challenging circuit.
German Reedy/TT teammates Marc Lutz, Oliver Waeckerle, and Thomas Feilner were joined by Frenchman Antoine Brunet and locals Gianni Zonzini and Andrea Selva to begin learning the circuit and finding a good setup. For bikes, the track in Riccione is small and narrow, which meant finding the perfect line was crucial for turning fast lap times.
In the Superbike category, Gianni Zonzini's Reedy Sonic/LiPo-powered bike led the team by qualifying fourth with Lutz and Waeckerle slightly down in the order but still in contention.

Powered by Reedy LiPo batteries, the team swept the top three qualifying positions in the Stockbike category:

The main events were run in perfect weather and featured a lot of excitement. Overtaking was difficult but after the long race day the Reedy/Thunder Tiger bike team was victorious in both electric categories.
