Hobbico have announced that Adam and Ronda Drake have joined the O.S. and TrakPower race teams for 2017. This R/C power couple has been kicking the competition for a combined 50+ years, racking up countless wins at all levels.
“It’s exciting to work for a company that values being involved with and supporting their customers”, Adam says. A backyard basher from age eight, he scored a major Team Losi sponsorship only six years later. Five 1/8 ROAR Nitro Buggy Nationals titles soon followed. By all accounts, Adam is one of the best pro racers in the world today.

Marco Baruffolo continues its momentum in qualifications and gets a third consecutive TQ. Behind the TLR driver we find his friend and teammate Alex Zanchettin and Reno Savoya, all two on TLR. Ty Tessmann continued his “learning” track and ranked 5th in front of the most Italian of the English, Elliott Boots. Robert Batlle is only 17th … he has difficulties to find an effective setting and because of his late arrival he lacks practice on the track.

And 2 TQ for Marco Baruffolo! The young Italian driver seems to have a plus that makes all the difference. He drives to the limit everywhere, on the wire of the razor but happens to remain on the wheels. With a time of 8 laps in 5: 23: 173 we are far from the times of the Q1, almost 4 seconds slower. The track changes enormously from one roundn to the other and we feels that the track experience of the Baruffolo allows them to make the difference. In second position Reno Savoya made again a nice round and hooked Marco by doing an 8 laps in 5: 23: 318 very, very close! 2 seconds behind Reno we find Davide Ongaro with a similar time than in Q1. The race will be very lively, mainly because of a crash that will create a traffic jam where the driving will be fairly virile and mistakes will be numerous.

The first round of qualifying of the Winter Cup started at the Ibr Padova indoor track in Italy. Marco Baruffolo took the TQ, which is not really a surprise given his performance interviews during the practices. The Italian driver in a spectacular style put in a very impressive run with 8 laps in 5: 19: 734 in front of his teammate Alex Zanchettin 2 big seconds behind and another TLR driver, Savoya in 5: 22: 068, less than half a second behind Zanchettin.
