Qualifying began Saturday morning with temperatures in the arena dipping below 30 degrees. Team Associated quickly warmed things up by taking TQ honors in four classes.

This coming July, Cody and Paul King will visit the east coast of the United States for an RC Seminar and race. This event will be held at RC Madness hobby shop and raceway in Connecticut. Cody had this to say about the event:
“Kyosho and Regan LeBlanc did these types of events years ago, and when RC Madness asked us to do this, I jumped at the opportunity. We were going to do it last year, but it got too close to winter time and we had to wait. Now it’s finally here! I’m really pumped about the support from my sponsors, and it’s shaping up into a really fun weekend full of prizes, information, and racing.

This past weekend saw 80 drivers attend the first round of the Madrid Championship which happened to be the perfect warm up race for the forthcoming European Champs “B” and Spanish nationals! Unfortunately the practice rounds were reduced due to rainfall which changed the track surface from muddy to slippery. After qualifying it was Alberto Garcia who claimed TQ followed by Daniel Vega and Juanma Guillen. To the racers disappointment rain started to fall again just before the main final, changing the track surface once more. That being said a great battle between Garcia & Guillen broke out which eventually saw Garcia take the lead due to a better fuel strategy. In the end it was TQ man Alberto Garcia who claimed the overall victory ahead of Juanma Guillen and Daniel Vega.
