As a result of the recent hot and dry spell, the 2WD and 4WD buggies found themselves contending on a very hard and dry track. In the 4WD class, Mark “BC” Lim had a convincing win after taking TQ honors and winning the first two finals. With BC sitting out, the third final was a battle between Youyi and Png who were both tied on points after 2 legs. The final battle for second place concluded with Youyi winning the final leg to claim second spot and Png having to settle for third.

The third round of the Polish National series took place this past weekend in Warsaw. The track on Saturday, especially for the first 2 qualification rounds, was moist. Many drivers struggled with the bumps that started to show up after several 1/8 scale runs however Wojtek Rzepecki (Xray XB4) seemed to have a big advantage in these difficult conditions. Wojtek managed to secure TQ with 2nd place on the starting grid going to Jakub Wawrzkiewicz (Yokomo B-MAX4 II) and the top-three was completed by Krzysztof Chmura (AE B44.2). Sunday finals were much more interesting as the differences between the top 5 drivers became very subtle. In the finals Jakub Pietrzak (Xray XB4) thanks to his consistent runs was the fastest. 2nd place went to the top qualifier – Wojtek Rzepecki (Xray XB4) and 3rd place to Jakub Wawrzkiewicz who was driving a Yokomo B-MAX4 II buggy.
