Bowie Ginting wins Indonesian GT Nationals Rd2

Sunter International Speedway played host to round two of the Indonesian 1/8th GT National Championship over the weekend. A cloudy sky and a wet track made for special conditions at first but the track would dry up after the second round of qualifiers and it would stay dry throughout the event. Fayakhun Andriadi would take the overall TQ, about a second in front of Christian Mamesah and Chopin Yusuf who took the front row at the start of the 30-minute main final. On the tone Bowie Ginting jumped into 2nd place, coming from the 8 spot after a disastrous qualifying and Chopin would lead the way until Bowie got past him in lap five. The humid weather made engine setup crucial and several drivers suffered flameouts and in the end Bowie would hold the upper hand, taking the win from Christian and Rusman.

Final results:
1. Bowie Ginting – Serpent/O.S.
2. Christian Mamesah – Serpent/O.S.
3. Rusman Kusnowo – Serpent/O.S.
4. Vavan – Mugen/Reds Racing
5. Fayakhun Andriadi – Kyosho/O.S.
6. Onni Widiaksono – HongNor/O.S.
7. Chopin Yusuf – HongNor/O.S.
8. Rusdian Utama – Kyosho/O.S.
9. Walid – Serpent/O.S.
10.Grosa – Kyosho/O.S.

Landen Lewis sweeps Forever Heroes Memorial race

Chehaw Raceway of Georgia recently held the Forever Heroes Memorial race to raise money for the good cause. The small and dusty track was a challenge to any racer with the mindset, “fast is faster”. A slower, more stable vehicle was far superior and Chandler Elliott (Mugen) would take the TQ in the Pro Nitro Buggy class while Landen Lewis (Xray) came out fastest in the Pro E-Buggy qualifiers. Ultimately Landen would walk away with the win in the Pro Nitro Buggy class from Kyosho’s Mickey Griffin and TLR driver Allen Krier and Landen would also sweep the Pro E-Buggy category by taking the day’s win from Mickey Griffin (Kyosho) in second and Larry Cromontia (Mugen) in third.

Robert Batlle successful at Montpellier GP

The annual Montpellier GP was held this past weekend in Montpellier, France and it saw Kyosho’s Elliott Boots walking away with the overall TQ after the five rounds of qualifying. In cold and wet weather conditions Team Associated’s Davide Ongaro would take the opening two qualifiers with Boots striking back in Q3 and Q4. Elliott than sat out Q5 and as Davide only scored a 7th place, both ended tie on points with the faster run handed Elliott the overall TQ from Davide. The pole position for the main final was then snatched by HB Racing’s David Ronnefalk who won the semifinal B with a faster time than Elliott did in the semi A. The first half of the hour-long main saw David in control of things until he made a series of errors that allowed Robert Batlle and Davide Ongaro to take control of things. Davide would suffer fading traction in the closing stages which gave Robert much needed room to bring home the win one lap in front of Davide who had David in tow with both separated by only 2.3s on the line. Elliott Boots would have to settle for fourth in the dry final while Jerome Aigoin (Xray) completed the top 5 result.

Final results:
1. Robert Batlle – Mugen/Picco
2. Davide Ongaro – Team Associated/LRP
3. David Ronnefalk – HB Racing/Team Orion
4. Elliott Boots – Kyosho/Reds Racing
5. Jerome Aigoin – Xray/Ultimate
6. Renaud Savoya – TLR/RC Concept
7. Thomas Musso – HB Racing/Team Orion
8. Juan Carlos Canas – Mugen/Ultimate
9. Edouardo Hugon – Agama/Alpha
10.Ignacio Candel – HB Racing/Team Orion
11.Eliot Marcon – Mugen/Ultimate
12.Joao Figueiredo – Kyosho/Team Orion
