The 40th Japan Model Radio Control Car Association (JMRCA) was held at the RC Land 23 track over the weekend. After very close qualifying rounds it was Kyosho’s Yusuke Sugiura who grabbed the overall TQ from AMain’s Atsushi Hara in second and Mugen’s Kenji Tsuruta in third. Unfortunately because of the rain the organisers had to cancel the finals and took the qualifying results as overall standings. Thus Yusuke was crowned 2017 JMRCA champion.
