Jared Tebo wins 6th title at Neo16

ECSA9947

It looked a little Jared Tebo might have to wait a little longer for Neo title #6, having been denied the last two years by the likes of Tessmann and most prominently Ryan Cavalieri in a fierce final last year – starting out in qualifying a little off the top 3 pace over the 5 mins as Cavalieri dominated, taking TQs in 4 of 5 rounds, however the thin line of balance of power is a continually shifting beast to master over the course of the difficult to master Neo – a 4 day Easter spectacular featuring 270 nitro racers and 60 E-Buggy drivers from all of 29 countries.

The semis were a split affair with the ‘A’ Semi offering a teaser of what was to come as Tebo unleased a pace outfront that only Cavalieri could hang with – David Ronnefalk was dominate in the other semi and things looked tasty – the artificial gap between Cav and Ronnefalk in the two seperate semis mere hundredths, Cav would line up P2, Ronnefalk P3…

ECSA9877

David Ronnefalk took a deserved victory in the Modeltune E-Buggy class at Neo16, starting 3rd on the grid, he was able to get past Ryan Cavalieri and Ryan Lutz in the opening couple of laps in the 10 min long final, it proved to be a cat and mouse finish as Ronnefalk was able to open and extend a decent lead over Ryan Lutz who appeared to struggle a little – his best laptime some 7/10ths off Ronnefalk and Cavalieri. MODELTUNE_NEO16

Cavalieri shadowed Lutz for many laps, once past he shot off like a dart to catch Ronnefalk, getting close at times but never quite enough to really challenge the Swedish HB driver, as the clock ticked down Ronnefalk would hold onto his lead and take the win.
