Proline Dirt Arena Winter Series Rd2

Proline Dirt Arena Winter Series Rd2

Last Sunday saw round 2 of the PDA winter series take place at Bicester. With a brand new track layout the drivers and spectators were sure to see more intense close racing. There were some noticeable absentees in the 2wd class with Tony Truman, Richard Barton and Simon Willets all unable to attend. This allowed the likes of Alex Springer and Keith Newton to gain much needed points. In qualifying there were several drivers who showed good pace but following the 4 rounds it was Alex Springer (Atomic Carbon) on pole with Keith Newton (B4) behind and Scott Follington (B4) rounding off the top 3.

Serpent 733 5mm rear belts

Serpent 733 5mm rear belts

Serpent have released new optional rear belts for their 733 200mm chassis. The first, an orange version of the standard kevlar reinforced belt, comes in 5mm (wide) making it more durable than the 4mm kit version, while sacrificing some drag. Serpent have also released a low friction Pro version of this new belt, which again is stronger than the standard 4mm belt but allows for a smoother drivetrain, eliminating most of the drag caused by having the extra width.

Phillip Atondo wins Delta RC IWS Rd1

Some brief news on the first round of the Delta RC Indoor Winter Series which just kicked off in NorCal on a tight and very technical track with great traction. With one of the toughest obstacles trying to keep warm, it was Phillip Atondo who TQ’d both buggy and truggy and was the only person to go the extra lap in buggy qualifying. Running 30 minute mains, Atondo finished first in both classes with his Novarossi powered 8ight 2.0s.
