Rheinard targets repeat win at ETS Germany

ETS_Rheinard

Having made the perfect start to Season #9 of the Yokomo Euro Touring Series with the TQ and win in the Czech Republic, Marc Rheinard will be targeting a repeat performance as the championship travels to Germany this weekend (5-7 February). Attracting a record 440 plus entries, Round 2 takes place in Muelheim-Kaerlich where the Tamiya driver has enjoyed two key successes in the past 12-months.  Last season the 4-time onroad World Champion ended a 5-year drought of ETS victories on carpet at the event and having claimed his first ever Euro Offroad Series win at the same venue just last weekend, the ETS’ most winning driver’s confidence couldn’t be higher.  Racking up his 13th ETS win in Hrotovice, Rheinard’s biggest competition is again set to come from Yokomo in reigning champion Ronald Volker and Xray in both Bruno Coelho & 2014 Mulheim winner Alexander Hagberg.

Li Jiawei & Cong win at Spring Cup

Li Jiawei & Cong win at Spring Cup

The recent Spring Cup in China attracted about 70 drivers to attend in four different 1/10th scale nitro and electric classes. A wet track in the morning as well as cold and snowy weather made things pretty unpleasant for the drivers and the race was postponed until 11:30 am to allow the track to become usable.
