Following the running of the IFMAR Worlds in Las Vegas, USA, Top 25 RC have released the updated rankings which sees newly crowned Champion David Ronnefalk move up two spots at the expense of Dakotah Phend who showed great potential in the semis, Worlds TQ Jared Tebo retains his 5th place spot whilst Tessmann remains ontop.

Interestingly, the rankings appear to be pretty accurate… with all of the top 8 ranked drivers making the main final…


Congratulations to new IFMAR World Champion David Ronnefalk on his dominating win!  It was amazing to see in person how David and others navigated the brutal track.  Ronnefalk moves up to the #4 in the rankings right behind Cavalieri (4th place finisher).

David was clearly the best driver in the main event, but some past results are holding him back from that coveted #1 ranked driver in the world, such as: 10th are Euros, 11th at Neo, and 13th at Silver State. 3rd place finisher Ty Tessmann retains the #1 ranking after continuing his incredible streak of consistency (Ty has not finished outside of top 3  at scoring events since neo 2015, which he finished 4th). A “surprise” to some was David Ongaro, who was a major factor all through the event and finished 6th, which moved him up to #12 in the world.  Other big moves came from Cole Ogden moving up 4 spots to land at #16 after a 13th place finish and  Joe Bornhorst moved up 4 spots as well after a 19th place finish at his first world championships.  22  drivers from the previous top 25 rankings finished inside the top 25 positions.  and ALL of top 10 finishers came from the top 15 ranked drivers which isn’t bad.
