Danish 1/10th off-road Nationals Rd1 report

The first round of the Danish Nationals were held in Kolding over the weekend in 2wd Modified, 4wd Modified, Stock and Truck 8.5t limited classes.  This year to promote RC the club had an arrangement to build a temporary track in the middle of a Motorsports Festival with thousands of spectators. The Festival had roadracing bikes, Driftcars, GT cars, Motocross, Monstertrucks, livemusic and lost of car brands showing off their latest editions. It made for a special atmosphere, although in all honesty our electricpowered cars had a hard time competing with the attention the real cars drew. The track was a good as it could be, and Rene Hougaard did a great job of announcing and keeping our RC show alive. The pits were fine, and although the noise and tiresmoke from driftcars and bikes were a bit distracting, we quite enjoyed ourselves with the atmosphere and lots of things to do between races. RC is also about having fun.
