Canberra Off Road Model Car Club hosted the Australian 1/8 Nationals in Narrabundah over the weekend. Aaron Stringer (Mugen) snatched the overall TQ in the Nitro Buggy class after a tie break with Kyle McBride (Infinity-HB Racing). K.McBride took the TQ in the Nitro Truggy class. In the hour-long Nitro Buggy final, despite a big scare with a few minutes to go, K.McBride took the win by a lap from A.Stringer in second whilst Craig Laughton (HB Racing) would take third a further lap down. After a wild 45-minute Nitro Truggy final which saw a very fast A.Stringer retiring before the first fuel stops, K.McBride spent the majority of the time chasing down Alex Bernadzik (Team Associated) for the win. Eventually he managed to take the win from A.Bernadzik while Caleb Noble (Mugen) came in third two laps down.
