Xray T4 2015 Spec – Coming soon

Xray will soon have the latest incarnation of their Championships winning T4 1/10th Electric Touring Car platform available. No detailed information are known yet but since the car is still called the T4 we expect more of an evolution than a revolution in design. More details about the ’15 model should surface soon.

Danish on-road nationals Rd5 – Report

Danish on-road nats Rd5 – Report

The RC Arena track in Greve, close to Copenhagen, hosted the final round of the Danish nitro on-road nationals. During Saturday’s qualifying Claus Ryeskov took TQ while Rasmus B. Nielsen and Martin Hansen had to settle for 2nd and 3rd respectively. A damp track for the final made the tyre choice difficult and drivers started both with rubber and wet foam tyres. Martin Lissau was one of the rain rubber tyre drivers and at first there was not enough water on the track making things difficult for him. Claus Ryeskov started on wet foams which at first looked like a good decision but some 7 minutes into the final more rain came meaning Martin would start to chase for the lead. As the final went on things got more and more worse and at the end it was only Martin and Claus who tried to keep the engines running. Ultimately Martin took the first place with Claus in tow. Tom Limkilde completed the podium in 3rd. In the 2014 championship Martin Lissau took the title from runner-up Claus Ryeskov and Rasmus B. Nielsen.
