Come Drive With Us – The Psycho Nitro Blast

Pro-Line and 5150 Media Productions present to you the story of the 2017 Psycho Nitro Blast. This season started out with so many changes; Maifield switching to Mugen; Tessmann to XRAY; so we decided to theme this season accordingly. Change is everywhere in this industry; even at the event level. In years past, DNC has been considered the largest nitro race in the world. That just might not be the case any longer.

This is the story of what could very well be considered the largest R/C race in the world, and unlike other large events…it is run in 3 days!

Lee Martin is 2WD European Champ

See: EFRA

The 2017 EFRA 1/10 Off-road European Championships are held in Pinerolo, Italy. After completely dry qualifying for the 2WD Championship, showers before the finals presented a new conundrum for all the Drivers. Englands Lee Martin started from pole with Riccardo Berton a surprise 2nd for Italy. Leg 1 saw a textbook run from Lee winning with some ease, however in the 2nd leg the changing surface conditions and a lack of information about the progress of the race nearly caught out the Yokomo Driver and he slowed 1 lap too early almost handing victory to Michal Orlowski., but a good piece of defensive driving saw Lee over the line to claim his 6th European championship. The final leg saw a win for Schumacher and Poland’s Orlowski that enabled him to take the runner up spot in the championship.
