Unless you happen to live under a rock, most of our readers will know that The Neo Race kicks off this weekend – back to it’s natural Easter slot and will play host to some of the World’s top drivers:
The first time all top 7 ranked drivers in the World meet and race together since the World Championships in December 2012!
Hoping to finally break Jared Tebo‘s insurmountable dominance of The Neo Race will be #1 ranked driver Ty Tessmann, the young Canadian star has cemented his status in RC since he last raced the Neo in 2012, whilst fan favourite Elliott Boots, a driver not even ranked in the top 7 currently looked the strongest challenger to Tebo in 2013. David Ronnefalk gets his first taste of 1/8 buggy again after his disappointing exit from the Dirt Nitro Challenge, a race he should have won, whilst the likes of Robert Batlle & Reno Savoya with a combined 5 European titles will be very dangerous.
Ranked 5th is Cody King, last year’s DASH 4 CA$H winner and recent champion of the Psycho Nitro Blast, excelling with Reds power he will be dangerous, not to mention Neo Race favourite Ryan Maifield, who will undoubtedly have the World’s attention on him running the RC8 prototype here this weekend!

Blake Boggs reports after his recent victory at the Jamie Rogers Memorial Race which was held in Flowood, Mississippi. This past weekend I attended the Jamie Rogers Memorial race in Flowood, Mississippi. Jamie passed away in January due to a fatal heart attack while attending Flowood’s “January Jam” race. Around 150 racers from the surrounding states joined together to remember a fallen hero in the rc community. Bubba Barham, race director, did a great job for Jamie’s son Ty and his Mother, Melissa. FRC had many sponsors donating product to be raffled off to raise money for Ty and his family, with close to $4,000 raised.
Cole Ogden reports after his recent victory in America with his new REDS 1/8 electric motor… This was an all-electric event bringing in a total of 197 entries. The track surface here was awesome, it was a hard packed, black grooved surface that had awesome traction. As the day of qualifying went on, I was able to come away with TQ over local fast guy Chris Veisens for the top spot in ebuggy.
The second round of the BRCA Truggy and E8 Buggy championship took place this past Sunday at Coventry Model Car club. As drivers arrived they could see that the crew at Coventry had been hard at work making some changes to the Dirt track. The track looked in great shape and it was evident that no one had been on the new layout. The sun was shining, although there was a slight chill in the air but this did not hamper the start, which was a 6 minute practice run for both classes. 3 qualifying runs were run next with the best 2 to count. Unfortunately both classes were missing several top drivers due to other commitments but this did not water down the racing.
