Last weekend celebrated the 4th edition of the 5-hour 1/10 TTE 2WD Endurance Race in Qgat Track, located in Sant Cugat del Vallés in Barcelona (Catalonia – Spain). A total of 9 teams raced to defend their positions during five hours on the track in a championship based on resistance format. The last minutes of the race were very exciting as Team Nenazas was leading the race for many hours, but was reached by TKRC Endurance Team, going up more than 2 laps difference in the last half hour, and getting the win in the final corners! Furthermore, Team Nenazas risked extending the battery time without changing, and could not withstand the final 30 meters! Third place went to the Team APM36, that suffered some setbacks that delayed them from the start of the race.

Gary Baird takes smooth sailing win at Irish Nats

unknown

Round 2 of the Irish 1/8 Nationals took place on the astro track of NIMCC. The challenging track is tight, twisty, and fast. Qualifying and the weather was playing its part with sun showers, and although it dried very quickly half the track was bone dry the other half stayed slick . Alan Scroggie set the pace followed by Gary Baird, Barkley Abernethy, and Aaron Vance.

As the Finals rolled around it was the same story with the weather. With interesting track conditions and tire choices, the start was quite a sight to see. Alan had a issue and had to retire by the first round of pit stops which left Gary to take up the lead. Barkley had a flame out at 10 mins, and spent 35 mins clawing his way back up to 2nd . Aaron Vance cut a few times and promoted Colin Whelan to a well deserved 3rd . Hats off to Gary Baird for smooth 45 min drive and a deserving win with difficult conditions.
