JQ’s 1/8th Euro Championship Report

JQ's 8th European Championship ReportThe 33rd installment of the most prestigious race in Europe took place in the nice town of Reims, France. Team JQ Products attended the race in full force with Team drivers: Joseph Quagraine, Robert Gustafsson, Rayan Medjoubi, Bradley Baird and Max Mort. Reims track is quite unique, as the surface is a white chalk like dirt, instead of the regular dirt we find at most European tracks. Fast, flowing with a decent amount of jumps makes it really challenging for average drivers with no previous experience there.

Unfortunately the Warm up for this race was under heavy rain so it was not so helpful for most of the drivers who attended, add to this the traction level changes throughout the day and you have a real headache for all drivers! Continue reading here.
