Rheinard puts one hand on trophy with Round 11 win

sun_trophy

Marc Rheinard has one hand on the Reedy International Race of Champions trophy with just one round of racing between him and a record 5th title.  The penultimate round of racing at the famous event netted the Tamiya driver his 7th win of the weekend allowing him to extend his lead to 3-points over defending Champion Ronald Volker.  A rough eleventh round for Volker, the Yokomo driver could only manage third behind team-mate Meen Vejrak and HB’s JJ Wang who notched up his second win of the event.  With both drivers lining up in the same heat for Round 12, which is the concluding race of the 18th running of the unique annual event, the advantage lies with Rheinard.  In order for Volker to stand any chance of retaining his title he must take the win as well as having Rheinard finish 6th or lower.

Round 10 of racing at the Reedy International Touring Race of Champion produced an important win for defending champion Ronald Volker.  Having moved into title contention with a win a round earlier Christopher Krapp would crash out of contention with a heavy off in through Tamiya Raceway’s famous kink.  Winning ahead of points leader Marc Rheinard,  Volker’s fifth win leaves the Yokomo driver just one point off his rival with just two more rounds of racing left to decide who will be champion of the 18th running of the late Mike Reedy conceived heads-up racing event.  In the other two races of the round, Singapore’s Nicolas Lee and factory HB driver Freddy Sudhoff secured their first race wins.

Touring car’s great rivalry is set for a showdown tomorrow at the 18th running of the Reedy Race of Champions at Tamiya Raceway with Marc Rheinard and Ronald Volker set to battle it out over the final four races for the win at the famous heads up racing event.  After an ‘almost perfect day’ for Rheinard yesterday, Volker would enjoy the best performances of the second day of racing with the defending champion notching up 3 wins and a 3rd over the day’s four races.  While Rheinard would match his fellow German in terms of wins, bringing his total to an impressive 6 from 8 starts, the day’s second encounter would see the Tamiya driver finish 5th.  After dropped scores, 10 from the 12 races counting, the ranking going into the final day sees Rheinard hold just a 2-point advantage over Volker with another German, Christopher Krapp, sitting third a further point back.

sat_volkerr-620x372

Having gained some ground on points leader Marc Rheinard in the day’s second round of racing with a win, defending Reedy Race Champion Ronald Volker continued his fight back with a third victory as the famous heads up racing event entered the second half.  Winning Round 7’s opening encounter from 9th on the grid, having pulled back 4 points on his rival in the previous encounter, the Yokomo driver however wouldn’t reduce the gap further as his rival snatched a late victory in Race 3.  While the two best touring car drivers in the world added a win to their tally, them separated by 2-points, the round would see one of the best offroad drivers in the world register his first. Starting from the front row of the grid Ryan Cavalieri would win Race 2 convincingly over his experienced Team Associated touring car team-mates Juho Levanen and Keven Hebert.
