The following information was posted on the http://www.brca.org/ website.
"After thirteen rounds of racing at the BRCA International Scale Touring Car World Cup, held at Alexandra Palace in London, Team Associated's Billy Easton emerged victorious racing the new Associated TC3. One of only five drivers to finish with a points maximum, he took the win thanks to his total elapsed time being eight seconds quicker than HPI's Swiss star Jean-Marc Betticher. Mark Pavidis took third place from Barry Baker and Craig Drescher.
Four days of racing on a excellent large carpet circuit provided a superb spectacle for the crowds attending the International Model Show, and introduced many people to the excitement of World class R/C touring car racing. Run to the same control formula pioneered at Ontrack '98, all competitors raced on M1T27 control tyres and a minimum of 12-turn motors, although 3000mAh cells were allowed in a British competition for the first time."
LRP had more speed controls in the Top 10 than any other manufacturer. Many thanks to Billy, Mark, Craig, Steven, Andrew and David for their support and their great performance at the ISTC World Cup. Billy and Mark both used the Reedy Modified Fury motor and Reedy 3000 cells.
