2014 Charity Race – Announcement

2014 Charity Race – Announcement

Following the success of the past 5 years of the Charity Race organised by Team La Gang and ToniSport at the permanent RC Landia carpet track in Scandiano, the event is back for a 6th year from the 28th to the 30th of November. Born from an idea between Team La Gang and Marc and Toni Rheinard, the event went ahead with a big effort from the organisers along with the support of a whole host of top international drivers and factory teams. Last year thanks to a big auction that they do before the final they raised more than €7,500 which was donated to the department of paediatrics hospital in Scandiano in the form of equipment purchased directly from Team La Gang so they are sure that their money will used in the way that they want. Limited to 120 drivers due to the limited pit space this year, thanks to ToniSport, they will have Marc Rheinard, Ronald Volker and Daniel Baldissarri and in attendance while thanks to Team Xray they will have Alexander Hagberg, Martin Hudy, Bruno Coelho, Marek Cerny, Francesco Martini, Alessio Menicucci, Alessandro Brunelli and other Italian Xray team drivers coming who will race against the best drivers from all over Italy for a weekend of fun, charity, good food and racing. For anyone interested in attending, feel free to contact Toni Rheinard (info@tonisport.de) or Davide Sillingardi (sillarcmail@gmail.com). Registration will open on Monday 3th of November at 9 pm on myrcm.ch.

Chris Jarosz doubles at Winter Takes All

Chris Jarosz doubles at Winter Takes All

Traction Hobbies of Reno, NV hosted the second annual Winter Takes All race. Three rounds of qualifying were run on Saturday, rocket-round style, with Triple-A mains run on Sunday with eight drivers qualifying directly to the main and two bumping from lower mains. Drivers flocked from all over the Northern California/Nevada area to see who would take the overall win along with the cash purse put up by Traction Hobbies owner Justin Clark. Qualifying went perfect for Chris Jarosz, who took the TQ in both the 2WD and 4WD Modified classes, setting the fastest times in round 2 of qualifying on the indoor clay track. A1’s of both classes would be wire-to-wire victories for Jarosz. A2 of 2WD would be another victory for Jarosz to take the overall title. A2 of 4WD proved to be more difficult for Jarosz. An early mistake put him down to the third spot, and it was an intense battle before he would come out on top, giving Jarosz his second victory of the weekend.

Finnich & Mortensen win in Nykobing Falster

The first round of the Danish electric on-road nationals was held at the LFRC club in Nykobing Falster, around 130 kilometres away from Copenhagen. The track is a little bit bumpy, but it was the same issue for all drivers and in the Touring Car Modified class it was Stefan Finnich who was able to make the best out of the track conditions. Lars Holm made a good pressure on Stefan, but Stefan drove very cold, and kept Lars behind him. Gustav Pind just started and will be very fast one day.
