Event Location: Canterbury Radio Control Car Club, Christchurch, New Zealand
Event Date(s): October 21, 2016 to October 23, 2016
At this year's South Island On Road Championship held in Christchurch, New Zealand, it was decided by all the drivers to run only the new 13.5T Blinky Super Stock class as the premier TC class. With the field consisting of multiple past national champions, the racing was always going to be close.
At the end of a great weekend's racing it was the Reedy-powered Team Associated TC7.1 of Ian Rickerby that claimed both TQ and the overall win in this new class for New Zealand.
Ian was also able to claim the TQ and Victory in 1/12 Modified EP with his Reedy-powered car.
