After an intense weekend of racing at OCRC Raceway in Huntington Beach, California, the 2015 Reedy Race of Champions is complete! The prestigious Invitational Class came down to the final round of 4wd buggy to clearly crown a champion. Clinching a final round victory, Team Losi Racing’s Ryan Maifield sealed the deal to win his first Reedy International Race of Champions! This came as a momentous occasion for Ryan, as he narrowly missed out with 2nd place finishes in both 2013 and 2014. Team Kyosho’s Jared Tebo would finish 2nd overall behind Maifield, with Team Associated’s Ryan Cavalieri taking home third.

The Reedy Race of Champions always brings out the new stuff, and this year is no different. Paul King (father/mechanic of Kyosho’s Cody King) has shared a Reedy Race selfie this afternoon displaying an all-new hat from Pro-Line Racing.
A refreshing change from the traditional black hats so often seen in the R/C world, we certainly hope this is a future production item and not limited to the PL Factory Team. Update: Another photo of the new cap surfaced ontop of Ty Tessmann’s race-winning head.

Serpent has announced they will in fact be entering the 1/10 4wd buggy race very soon with the all-new Spyder SRX-4. The Spyder line of 1/10 scale offroad vehicles has grown to include rear motor and mid-motor 2wd buggys, a 2wd short course, and will now include a 4wd buggy. World Championship winning driver/designer, Billy Easton, is behind the drawing board on the Spyder SRX-4 project and is confirmed to be racing the new buggy at the upcoming Reedy Race of Champions.
The new car has been rumored, tested, and talked about continually throughout 2014, however, as it has never been seen, it comes as quite a pleasant surprise to find out that it is in what Serpent is calling the “final stages of testing where the last small modifications are being made.” In addition to its debut at the Reedy Race, the new car will be on display at the upcoming Toy Fair in Germany, where final details and a release date will be revealed.

The Reedy Race is not just any race. It is a “bucket list” race; a race that most R/C enthusiasts dream of attending! There are two classes run at this race; the Invitation Class which is a mix of the top drivers in the World rankings as well as a few R/C Legends. The other Class is the Open Class. This race is so prestigious that a lottery drawing is conducted for participation in the open class.
Only 200 racers are given the honor of competing in the event. CoryD was in attendance to document what it’s like for a top-level pro, as well as the average racer to attend this storied race.
