Nacho Lopez takes final round of Spanish 1/8th nats

Nacho Lopez takes final round of Spanish 1/8th nats

The final round of the Spanish 1/8th nitro on-road nationals was held in Elche. Serpent’s Nacho Lopez, who had a difficult season so far, was able to secure his 5th consecutive TQ in the qualifiers making him a hot candidate for the win. In the semi final Nacho suffered a flame out at the start, a stop-and-go penalty for bad refuelling and excessive tyre wear made his car hard to drive in the closing stages so he could only secure the 4th spot on the starting grid for the main final.

Shepherd Velox V10 1-piece servo mount

Shepherd Micro Racing release an updated one-piece aluminium steering servo mount for the Velox V10. Due to the new lightweight-design it is about 40 percent lighter than its predecessor. The blue-anodised CNC-machined servo mount is made of high quality 7075-T6 material to provide a sturdy base for the steering servo. This results in a very precise control of the steering movement and optimised handling. Long holes allow the use of different kinds of servo and the necessary fastening material is included.

International Carpet Challenge 2015 – Announcement

International Carpet Challenge 2015 – Announcement

The organisers of the ICC have confirmed that the event will return in 2015. Building on the success of last year’s event, which saw the UK’s Kyle Branson narrowly beating top German drivers Freddy Sudhoff and Yannic Prumper, the event will return across the weekend of the 20th to 22nd February 2015. The format will remain largely unchanged for 2015, being held at the same location in Essex, South-East England, and organised by the world-famous EWS Team and RC media personality Oli Meggitt. There has been a slight tweak to the classes for 2015 – the Open Modified and HPI Vintage Challenge classes return, but the Stock and Pro Stock classes have been combined into the new Super Stock class – for 13.5T motors with zero timing (“blinky”) speed controllers. More details and sign-up for the event can be found here.
