Event Name: 1:8 Nitro Victorian Driver series Round 1
Event Location: Bad RC, Bendigo
Event Date(s): February 25, 2017 to February 26, 2017


I had a great weekend at Bad RC in Bendigo for round one of the Victorian driver series. Dad and I arrived in Bendigo Saturday morning. When we arrived we saw the track had molasses put down on it, which was great for me, because I like high-bite tracks.

Sunday morning race day! When we got up, we heard a bit of rain coming through and I wasn't too happy. I was hoping that there wasn't so much rain that it would wash the grip away from the Saturday traffic. Unfortunately it did. Not having any practice runs, I made a small adjustment to the buggy. The car was on song. We left the truggy as it had been set up on Saturday and decided to go out in the first qualifier. The cars were great! I was able to take the double TQ in both classes. I was stoked.

In Truggy, It was a good racing until mid-race. Unfortunately, my good friend Liam Jones retired early during the race and I was able to pull a good lead on the pack to take the win.

Buggy was the same. Leading the race from the first lap I was getting nervous. Again a few drivers in my race retired early, which gave made me the opportunity to pull away from the rest of the field.

I am super happy with the Team Associated vehicles and Reedy electronics racing combo. I also thank my Dad for the fast pits stops and everything else.

Thanks to Cameron Zammit for this report.
