Knox Cup wins for Team Associated and ReedyMay 5, 2017
Event Name: Knox Cup, Round 2 Victorian Drivers Series
Event Location: Melbourne, Australia
Event Date(s): April 29, 2017 to April 30, 2017
Round 2 of the Victorian Drivers Series saw over 100 entries race at the Knox club in the South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. The club had recently laid down a new clay surface -- which received over 80mm of rain just before the event. Thanks to hard work from the club, the track was fantastic for the event, providing a low-wear, consistent race surface akin to an indoor track.
The Modified 2WD and 4WD Buggy classes were dominated by Team Associated/Reedy drivers, with factory driver Ray Munday taking TQ and winning all three mains of each class with his B6D and B64D buggies for a perfect score for the weekend! Andrew Selvaggi (AE/Hobbywing) and Matt Kellett (AE/Reedy) were close behind for a Team Associated podium sweep in both 2WD and 4WD Modified. Six out of the ten A finalists in 2WD Modified used B6Ds and eight out of the 4WD Modified A finalists were driving the B64D!
The Modified Truck class was taken out by 12-year-old gun Jordan Isergin driving a T5M, giving AE a sweep of all modified classes.
The AE junior drivers all represented strongly with Lachlan Munday (2WD), Jordan Isergin (4WD), and Carter Sims (4WD) all making modified A finals against deep fields.
Thanks to the club for putting on a fantastic event and thanks to Team Associated and Reedy for their incredible products and support!
