French RC tracks from Space

Track from Space

French site Petit RC have a post on their site showing lots of French tracks photographed from space. The quality of the images aren’t great, probably limited by the zoom available in the mapping program used, but it’s still interesting none the less.

You can view these tracks from space here.

The big battle was between Steen Graversen, Jonas Kaerup, and myself. It was very very close, with the top 3 cars separated by only 2 seconds in qualification.

Ian Whittingham

Yesterday we reported on the TORC series from Bedworth, in which we noted that the F2 class had been taken by Elliot Harper. Well the overall TORC series championship went to Ian Whittingham who, driving a Grainger special edition Yokomo, took the title for a second year running.

He was already uncatchable after the Stafford round in August, with three rounds still to go. Ian finished the season with another strong performance taking TQ and overall second place at the Bedworth meeting.
