2016 Québec Classic Race buggy nitro

The 2016 Québec Classic was held at the Bego Racing RC Raceway near Montréal Canada this week-end. It was a large success with more than 250 entries for 4 days of racing. The track design by Jérôme Treignier, Pat Malo and David Lecuyer was super fun and technical. Moreover the dirt offers an insane traction to make racing perfect !! In the Nitro Buggy Class presented by Team Associated, Derek Sousa took the TQ in rd 1 while Mark Sousa took the TQ in rd 2 and 3 to take the overall TQ.

With an early mistake in the first lap, Mark was back in the field while Derek was cruising in the lead. With 10mins in the race, Mark made the pass on Derek for the lead. At the 20 mins mark, Derek suffered from a flame out, allowing Aaron Kothman to take the second spot in front of Paul Cicarello, but Aaron also suffered of a flame out and Paul took the 2nd overall while Derek took 3rd.
