Pain & Laughton take WA State Titles

Pain & Laughton take WA State Titles

The 2011 WA State Titles and round 3 of the AARCMCC Australian Championship Series took place last weekend. Craig Laughton took the TQ in both the buggy and truggy classes, but failed to bump into the buggy main following a throttle servo failure. Two days of practice and qualifying under a typical Perth sun and by Sunday the track was perfect for finals racing with an amazing blue-groove. A light shower early in the morning put just enough moisture into the ground and with cloud overhead all day to keep the temperature down you couldn’t ask for better conditions. Both finals were intensely close and it is amazing that after 45 minutes of racing, there was only 6 seconds between 1st and 2nd in the truggy final and only 11 seconds between the 1st three in the buggy final. In the buggy class it has Hobao superstar Josh Pain that took the title from Mugen racers Matt Griffin in 2nd and Josh Taylor in 3rd. In the truggy final Losi racer Craig Laughton that took the win from Josh Pain, with Matt Griffin in 3rd.

Lee Martin wins Stotfold BRCA 4wd National

Lee Martin wins Stotfold BRCA 4wd National

oOple are reporting on the opening 4wd national of the season at Stotfold that saw a close race between several drivers but it was Ellis Stafford and Lee Martin that shone above all others as the pair shared qualifying between them. Lee Martin took overall TQ honours and lined up in front of Ellis for the 3-leg A final. Much like qualifying it was a battle between these two that stole the show, Lee taking the first leg and Ellis the second. It was all down to the dramatic final leg and after an intense battle Ellis took the lead but with an increasingly worrying noise coming from his Kyosho he was almost instantly out of the race with some broken gears. Lee Martin took the final leg and with it the win and a great start to his 2011 4wd national title hopes.
